Originally it looked as if he was leaning towards playing for Urban Meyer and the Gators, but after being unable to attend a camp at Florida, Louis began getting the feeling that he was no longer at the top of Florida’s recruiting list. He felt a bit snubbed, and eventually decided he wanted no part of that drama. Even though he has not paid a visit to OSU’s campus, he says he wants to be a Buckeye. Apparently, Louis did not like being a contingency plan for the Florida Gators.
Louis caught 58 passes for 1,101 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior, and is a part of the Rivals.com, Rivals250 club. He is rated as the 31st-best receiver in the country. This is a huge get for the Buckeyes, since it his rare they can pluck such a talent from the big boys in SEC country. Here is a video of James Louis if you wish to check him out for yourself.
