The Buckeyes have a commitment from the top wide receiver prospect in
the state of Ohio, Frank
Epitropoulos
(Upper Arlington, Ohio/Upper Arlington). They want to
sign at least two wide receivers in their 2012 recruiting class and one
of the prospects they are eyeing was on the Ohio State campus Tuesday.

Roger Lewis
(Pickerington, Ohio/Central) was going to visit Ohio State last week,
but had to postpone the short trip at the last minute. However, Lewis
was able to make the visit this afternoon.

“I’m on my way home right now,” Lewis said moments ago. “It went
real well. They said they are going to offer me. But I got there kind of
late and coach (Luke) Fickell had already left. I think coach Fickell
wants to talk to my parents so I might re-visit with them.”

Lewis spent time today with two Ohio State assistant coaches this
afternoon.

“I was ‘chillin’ in the coaches’ offices with coach Stan Drayton and
coach (Greg) Gillum,” Lewis said. “We talked and they showed me around
the Woody Hayes Facility. They were the ones that said they are going to
offer me. They said if I do commit they could see me working hard and
contributing.”

After an impressive performance at the Ohio State Senior Advanced
Camp on June 25 in which Lewis won an award as wide receivers MVP,
Lewis put himself into strong contention for a scholarship offer from
the Buckeyes.

Lewis currently has offers from West Virginia, Arizona,
Cincinnati and virtually the entire MAC.

“I’m going to choose wisely,” Lewis said. “Ohio State is one of
my top schools with West Virginia, Cincinnati and Arizona. I’ll be
making my decision probably in the next week or two.”

The 6-foot-2 and 195-pound Lewis caught approximately 15 passes
for close to 350 yards and seven touchdowns during his junior season.

Bill Kurelic’s Comment: When Lewis gets the official word from
Fickell that he has a scholarship offer, I would not be surprised if he
commits pretty quickly to the Buckeyes.
