Nick Conner Has His Dream Come True

I have been following and covering recruiting for the better part of 20 years now. In my time I have done my best to not get emotionally invested in which recruits pick OSU and which ones do not. I mean Urban Meyer is offering hundreds of kids every year and if I got too invested I would lose my mind considering only around 20-25 will ever make it into OSU. There is an exception every once in a while where I get to know a recruit and almost get fully invested in his drive to become a Buckeye. Today that dream became reality for one young man and I couldn’t be happier for him.


Nick Conner is a 6’3″ 225 lbs 4 star Top 247 Linebacker from Dublin, Ohio. Nick being a local kid grew up loving Ohio State and worked his tail off to earn his offer to attend Ohio State. He spent a lot of time getting to know the coaches and the players and building on what the coaches wanted him to improve on. He came into camp today with a mission and earned his offer from Coach Meyer and committed right on the spot.

On a personal note I couldn’t be happier for such a quality young man who has done all that was asked of him and didn’t take offense when the coaches challenged him to get better and come and camp with them and ear his offer. The kid bleeds Scarlet and Gray and hopefully all of Buckeye Nation will get behind him and show him some love.
