College Football Recruiting: Jordan Diamond Visits Ohio State

Top offensive tackle prospect Jordan Diamond took an official visit to Ohio State this weekend.

Simeon High in college may have the most lusted-after high school basketball player in the country right now in junior wing Jabari Parker, but the Wolverines also have one of the state's most in-demand football players. At 6'6", offensive tackle Jordan Diamond has the size college scouts drool over, and the senior lineman is currently entertaining offers from a handful of college football's heavy hitters. 

Diamond visited Ohio State and new coach Urban Meyer this weekend in Columbus as part of an official visit. Diamond described Meyer in glowing terms to ESPNU:

"It went well," Diamond said. "He brings a lot of energy. He’s a great a coach, a great coach. A great person, too. He’s a high-motor guy, and that’s what I look for in a coach."

Tenured Chicago football recruiting analyst Edgy Tim added more at the Chicago Tribune:

The 6-6, 289-pounder also has official visits lined up for Auburn (Dec. 16) and Arkansas (Jan. 20). Diamond is expected to take all five official visits allowed under NCAA rules before making his decision known in late January or Feb. 1, which is national signing day.
