As Ohio State's 2012 class continues to fill up, one spot where the Buckeyes are looking to add some depth is offensive tackle. In the state of Ohio, the Bucks are keeping tabs on Cincinnati (Ohio) Wyoming offensive tackle Terry Davis. The 6-foot-4, 270-pound prospect holds 15 offers and he's starting to narrow his scope down to a handful of teams.

"The top schools that have offered me are probably Cincinnati, Louisville, Illinois, Indiana, and NC State," he said. "For schools that haven't offered me, probably Ohio State (is showing the most interest)."

The Ohio State coaching staff and Davis have kept in pretty regular contact with each other since the spring and the staff will be evaluating his first few games this fall.

"I've just been talking to coach (John) Peterson a lot," he said. "I've been sending him e-mails and stuff and I've been talking to him a lot over the past couple of months. He also came to my school and visited me in April."

If the Buckeyes were to come in with an offer, it would certainly grab Davis' attention as he grew up following the team.

"I always wanted to play for Ohio State when I was younger so if I got an offer from them it would be a big deal to me," he said. "I've always been an Ohio State fan so I have a high interest level in them."

On the field, Davis' major strengths are his feet and athleticism and because of that, he's seeing interest from schools at a variety of positions along the offensive and defensive lines.

"Most schools are saying offensive tackle or guard," he said. "Some schools are offering to play defensive tackle so I guess it's just whatever I grow into during my college career."

Davis says it doesn't matter what position he plays at the next level and he'd like to make his college decision in the not too distant future.

"I'll probably get my decision out of the way after my first three or four games," Davis said. "I haven't planned any (visits) yet but I think I'm going to take some."

Davis is currently ranked as the 41st best player in Ohio in the class of 2012 rankings.
