**Cell Mates … There is no doubt quarterback Kyle Allen (Scottsdale, Ariz./Desert Mountain) is a strong candidate for a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes. And there is no doubt the interest on the part of the Ohio State staff is not a one-way street and Allen is highly interested in OSU.
What are they saying about Tommy Schutt? One way to find out ...
But as further proof of the mutual interest, the two sides talk often – in fact very often.
Allen calls Urban Meyer and Ohio State offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman every week and talk with at least one of the two if not both. Allen has scholarship offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Oklahoma State, North Carolina, UCLA and Duke, and hopes to add Ohio State to his list by the middle of the football season after Meyer and Herman see video of his first four or five games.
**No Safety Squeeze … Remember when Ohio State’s starting safeties used to be a bit of a liability? Of course you do. It was last season.
