The search for a quarterback in Ohio State's class of 2014 appears to be complete as the Buckeyes have landed a commitment from Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County product Stephen Collier. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound prospect was offered on Friday night by the Ohio State coaches and took the offer on the spot.
"Offered. Committed. Accepted," Collier posted on his twitter account.
Collier also sent a statement to BuckeyeGrove.com, expressing his excitement for joining the Ohio State football program.
"It's great to be a Buckeye and I'm so blessed to have this opportunity," Collier said.
Collier becomes commitment No. 12 for Ohio State in its 2014 recruiting class and chose the Buckeyes over Boston College, Cincinnati, Marshall, Wake Forest and others. Most of Collier's offers came in over the last couple of months as he has performed well at several camps around the country.
For Collier, the moment he got the offer, there was no doubt in his mind that he was going to take it on the spot.
"We'd already been in contact for a few months and when I visited I knew that's where I wanted to be," he added. "Why wait?"
Collier's relationship with Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman was another factor in his quick decision to choose the Buckeyes.
"He's an amazing coach," Collier said. "The best there is and it's going to be great to work with him throughout college."
Now Collier will turn from recruit to recruiter as the Buckeyes look to add some linemen and some offensive weapons around him in this class.
"Oh of course (I'm ready to recruit)," he said. "I'm going to go after the best."
Collier will participate in the Elite 11 quarterback camp next week in Beaverton, Oregon after earning an invite with an outstanding showing on the regional level.
