MotSaG Chat with Austin Dorris

Austin Dorris is a tight end coming out of the 2015 class. He is from Shadyside, Ohio and was given a three star rating from rivals. Ohio State has not offered him but are showing interest. Austin has offers from many schools such as Colgate, Marshall, Kent State, Ohio and Toledo.

His recruiting is starting to pick up a little bit. Per 247 Sports, he camped at Vanderbilt on June 10th. Austin visited Ohio State this past season for a game. I would not be surprised if the Buckeyes pull out an offer to him. Below is an interview I did with Austin.
