On the scene: The McMillan decision

Follow Noon | Givler | Maks | Holleran | AndyMac

HINESVILLE, Ga. - Ohio State's recruiting effort for the class of 2014 has paid off in a big way so far with 17 top recruits already giving their verbal pledges to Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes but No. 18 could be as huge as they get with Hinesville (Ga.) linebacker Raekwon McMillan closing in on making his decision known to the public. McMillan is rated as the No. 1 inside linebacker in the nation by Rivals.com and holds a rankings of 5-stars. The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder could pick pretty much any school but has narrowed his choices down to just five schools: Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia and Ohio State.

The Buckeyes have made McMillan a priority in the class and it is no secret that the opportunity for playing time is there with the potential departure of Ryan Shazier and no other linebackers cemented into their roles starting in 2014 with the team.

Ohio State has long maintained the status as McMillan's favorite or co-favorite for almost the whole journey but teams have closed the gap and going into Monday there is a great deal of uncertainty where McMillan will select and the fan bases of several schools are all nervously awaiting the decision.

McMillan's decision will be broadcast live starting at 12:00 pm (EST) on NBC Sports Network and Rivals.com will join in with a live webcast at 12:30 pm (EST) which can be seen above in this story. Our own Marc Givler has been in Hinesville since Sunday and is giving his additional thoughts from behind the scenes here.

The school that is lucky enough to land his pledge will be getting an early enrollee that could figure into the plans immediately.
