Buckeyes offer Florida sophomore

Follow Noon | Givler | Axelrod | Birmingham

It is two years before Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast linebacker Sherrod Pittman has to sign a National Letter of Intent, but the 6-foot-1, 215-pound class of 2015 prospect already holds 20 verbal offers from some of the nation's top programs. Pittman's latest offer came during this past week from Ohio State.

"Yes I did get an Ohio State offer," Pittman confirmed to BuckeyeGrove.com. "I was thinking about Ryan Stamper, former linebacker for First Coast when I got the offer."

Stamper, a former Florida linebacker who played for now Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, was hired by Ohio State back in August as Coordinator of Player Development. Several First Coast players look up to Stamper and Pittman plans to get to know more about him and the Ohio State program.

"I don't know him that well yet, but I'm going to get to know him better," Pittman said. "I want to check out (Ohio State) one day."

Among Pittman's early offers are schools such as Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Miami (Fla.), South Carolina, and West Virginia, among others.

"It's going awesome," he said of the recruiting process. "I have about 20 offers, no (favorite schools); I research a lot of schools."

As for why so many big-time programs have already put their hats into the ring, Pittman says he has both the physical and mental tools that schools are looking for.

"I'm very physical," he said. "I'm a smart player and I feel like I'm the best at what I do."
