    Ohio State offers Indiana standout Deontae Craig
    After a pair of visits to Ohio State last season, 3-star defensive lineman Deontae Craig from Indiana had been waiting to find out if he was going to receive a scholarship offer.

    That came Tuesday morning.

    “It happened early this morning,” Craig told Lettermen Row. “It’s one of my dream schools. Coach Mattison was at [a game] in January and he reached out again recently. He just wants to keep building the relationship and wants me to get back up there during the spring.”

    Despite being one of his dream schools, the 6-foot-4, 240-pound defensive end at The Culver Academies has no plan for any sort of quick commitment. He wants to see a few schools that have been on his list as well.

    “Committing right now never really crossed my mind,” he said. “Obviously, it was a big offer for me. But I’m still looking forward to seeing other school and building relationships. I’m thinking about taking a trip to Iowa in March, and I’ll hopefully make it out to Kentucky and Northwestern.”

    It was Mattison who offered Craig, and he has also recruiting him while on the coaching staff at Michigan. The country’s 23rd-ranked defensive end said the two haven’t talked much about Mattison’s flip to the Buckeyes. He’s happy he made it, though.

    “We haven’t really talked about the reasoning on why he switched,” Craig said. “But Ohio State has always been my favorite school, so I was definitely happy for him when I found out he took the job.

    “I’m actually really excited to see what he and Larry Johnson can do. I mean, both of them have been around for a while and they both know the game so well. It’ll be interesting to see their new schemes come together next year.”

    Craig will be visiting Ohio State at some point this spring.
