**Kief Rising? … The Buckeyes want to sign at least one tall, fast Class of 2014 wide receiver. One of their top targets, Drake Harris, is off the board now with his commitment to Michigan on Sunday (OK, with the way Urban Meyer has been able to flip prospects a little thing like a commitment doesn’t mean he has been taken off the Buckeyes’ board). But with Harris’ announcement, Cincinnati (Ohio) LaSalle star Derek Kief becomes even more important.
Large and in charge?
Kief took in the Buckeyes’ spring game on Saturday with his grandfather and uncle, making it at least a half-dozen times Kief has visited with the Buckeyes. Kief’s parents don’t want him to rush into anything and there was never much of a possibility he was going to pull the trigger over the weekend. Kief’s parents want him to visit more schools before he makes his decision.
But we are hearing Kief’s interest in Ohio State is strong and it is going to be no easy chore for anyone to beat out the Buckeyes in this battle. Kief is still expected to visit Louisville and probably Wisconsin and Arkansas, maybe even a couple others. But the Buckeyes are in good shape at this point.
