2011 Tight End Nick Vannett Commits to Ohio State
Nick Vannett felt the people and the recruiting class of 2011 sold him on Ohio State. A local recruit for the Buckeyes, Vannett comes from nearby Westerville Central where he caught 20 passes as a junior for 240 yards and 2 touchdowns. Rated the 12th best tight end in the country, Vannett joins Jeff Heuerman as a top rated tight end to join OSU in 2011.
Ohio Tight End Nick Vannett Selects Ohio State For 2011
By Steve Patterson
With scholarship offers from schools such as Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Michigan, Notre Dame and Wisconsin, Vannett had his choice of big time football programs to play for at the next level. He selected the Buckeyes over Tennessee, VA Tech, and Wisconsin. He quickly became a national prospect after an early Ohio State offer and had to take some extra time to make a decision because of the number of schools making offers.
Vannett’s decision was made a little bit earlier than the public found out about it. He visited Ohio State for their summer camp, performed well, and gave his commitment the day after camp ended. He thinks the 2011 class can be something special with the strong offensive and defensive lines in addition to the number one quarterback prospect in the country in Braxton Miller. Vannett predicted that another central Ohio product, Ron Tanner, would be joining the class when he spoke with the media a couple of days before Tanner did commit.
