    I'D SHED A TEAR, TOO

    Ohio State offered a scholarship on Friday morning to Independence, Missouri, William Chrisman three-star defensive end Daniel Carson.

    “I found out [defensive line coach] Larry Johnson talked to my coach and he wanted it to be a surprise,” Carson told Eleven Warriors. “So my coach called me down and I talked to him and he put THE Urban Meyer on the phone! It was so crazy. I was so emotional. But it was great. Urban Meyer offered me and it was just so amazing.”

    The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Carson is considered the 18th-best strong-side defensive end and No. 558 prospect overall in the Class of 2018. He holds double-digit offers from programs such as Georgia, Kansas State, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Ole Miss.

    “Keeping God first and not being complacent gets you somewhere,” Carson said. “I will never stop grinding. This made me go up another level.”

    Carson recorded 56 tackles, 13 sacks, 11 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries last year to help lead the Bears to their first winning season since 1981 and first conference title since 1963.

    Daniel Carson| Independence (Mo.) William Chrisman | ★★★
    Ohio State is seeing a lot of potential in this 6-foot-5, 260-pound defensive lineman, a recent offer out of Missouri.

    Carson has 13 offers, including Oklahoma and Georgia, and will see a major rankings boost as the spring turns to summer. Right now he’s the 18th-ranked strong-side defensive end and the 10th-ranked player in Missouri. He has not yet visited Ohio State but has plenty of time to do so: He doesn’t want to announce a college decision until January 2018.

    LARRY'S LOADING UP

    Jumping back to those who attended a recent Ohio State practice, this list of visitors includes Independence, Missouri, William Chrisman three-star defensive end Daniel Carson.

    “[I got to] tour the campus, talk to the coaches and see how they practice,” Carson told Eleven Warriors. “It was amazing.”

    The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Carson is considered the 19th-best strong-side defensive end and No. 537 prospect overall in the Class of 2018. He holds double-digit offers from programs such as Georgia, Kansas State, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Ole Miss, but Ohio State certainly stands out.

    “They are a huge school, they work hard and the rest explains itself,” Carson said, citing the aforementioned Johnson as a big reason for his interest in the program. “He's a great coach. He's good at what he does.”

    Carson recorded 56 tackles, 13 sacks, 11 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries last year to help lead the Bears to their first winning season since 1981 and first conference title since 1963.

    Buckeyes still working on relationship with Daniel Carson

    As mentioned earlier on Thursday afternoon, Ohio State is still working hard to recruit defensive linemen in its 2018 class, despite having early commitments from a pair of top-50 players in Taron Vincent and Brenton Cox.

    One of the names listed as “still worth paying attention to” is Independence (Mo.) lineman Daniel Carson, a 3-star prospect per 247Sports. He’s not discussed as much as some other players, such as 5-star prospect Micah Parsons or 4-star prospect Tyreke Smith for example, but he remains a real option for the Buckeyes.

    “Larry Johnson, Sr. was here to visit last week,” Carson told Land of 10. “I was talking with them a lot, but it’s not as much lately.”

    That may sound a touch ominous, but it’s really a matter of inconvenience, not intent. Ohio State’s visit to his school a week ago would indicate that the Buckeyes still have sincere interest.

    “I had my phone stolen last Tuesday,” he said. “I lost some communication with schools, but I will have a phone again soon.”

    Carson, a 6-foot-5 and 265-pound lineman at William Chrisman High, made his first (and thus far only) visit to Ohio State at the end of March. He had an “incredible” two-day visit with the Buckeyes, but realized that his decision isn’t going to be based on one or two days’ worth of feelings.

    “It’s called the recruiting ‘process’ for a reason,” he shared. “It takes time and I can’t wait for the relationships I make with Ohio State and the other schools recruiting me to grow.

    “Ohio State has been a powerhouse for a very long time, and all the talk here about them from people and coaches in the NFL is that the Buckeyes going into the NFL are ready for battle and are incredible players. Their practices aren’t boring, they’re intense. I wasn’t practicing (during his visit) of course but I felt as if I would really enjoy practice and grinding with guys like Nick Bosa, Tyquan Lewis and Jalyn Holmes. I love the coaches and even the graduate assistants are awesome. It’s a family atmosphere, which I love. I don’t have a date set, but I will for sure get back there this summer.”

    Carson has offers from nearly 20 schools and says he’s taking his time with the process.

    “I am not going to commit anywhere until after my senior season of football,” he added. “I want to take my visits. I don’t really feel I like any school more than another right now, I’m just enjoying this moment.”

    LOFTY GOALS

    With Tyquan Lewis and Jalyn Holmes set to graduate and Sam Hubbard eligible to enter the NFL Draft next spring, addressing the potential departures along defensive line is one of Ohio State's top priorities for the Class of 2018. The Buckeyes already hold commitments from five-star tackle Taron Vincent and four-star end Brenton Cox, and hope to bring on at least three more defensive linemen this cycle.

    Among the potential options, Independence, Missouri, William Chrisman three-star defensive end Daniel Carson, who recently received a visit from defensive line coach Larry Johnson.

    “He's really a good guy, and I admire him,” Carson told Eleven Warriors. “He's a Christian guy and a great coach. I love that, and he has experience.”

    The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Carson is considered the 19th-best strong-side defensive end and No. 505 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, having recorded 56 tackles, 13 sacks, 11 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries last year to help lead the Bears to their first winning season since 1981. He holds nearly 20 offers from programs such as Alabama, Georgia, Miami, Oklahoma, Missouri, Nebraska and Texas.

    Carson was on campus for an unofficial visit back in late March, and his relationship with Johnson has continued to grow ever since. It's widely assumed he'll end up with the in-state Tigers, though the Buckeyes certainly have a shot thanks to their emphasis on both on- and off-the-field success.

    “I want a family. I don't want to be on a roster of players,” Carson said. “I want to have fun, but have goals. I want to see the school where I can do anything and have all of my goals reached. I want to be different from other players, and I try doing that by giving in my community.”

    His goals include being an academic and athletic all-American, racking up countless community service hours, being a leader and reaching the National Football League.

    ONE OF MY FAVORITE PROSPECTS IN THIS CLASS

    Independence, Missouri, William Chrisman three-star defensive end Daniel Carson included Ohio State in his Top 11 on Tuesday evening alongside Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Iowa State, Miami, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and TCU.

    The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Carson is considered the 19th-best strong-side defensive end and No. 504 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, having recorded 56 tackles, 13 sacks, 11 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries last year to help lead the Bears to their first winning season since 1981.

    Carson was on campus for an unofficial visit back in late March, and his relationship with defensive line coach Larry Johnson has blossomed in the months since.

    “He's really a good guy, and I admire him,” Carson told Eleven Warriors. “He's a Christian guy and a great coach. I love that, and he has experience.”

    It's widely assumed he'll end up with the in-state Tigers, but the Buckeyes are certainly in need of bodies along the defensive line with Tyquan Lewis and Jalyn Holmes set to graduate and Sam Hubbard eligible to enter the NFL Draft next spring.

    Ohio State already holds commitments from five-star tackle Taron Vincent and four-star end Brenton Cox and hopes to bring on at least three more linemen this cycle. Five-star end Micah Parsons, four-star end Tyreke Smith and four-star tackle Aeneas Hawkins are all among the staff's top priorities at this point in time, too, but Carson is absolutely a name to pay attention to in the coming months.
