Ohio State football recruiting can be a wild ride full of twists and turns as recruits from all over the country maneuver their way to signing day. Lettermen Row is here to help navigate the tumultuous roads by getting to the heart of the matter with the young football players and Ohio State coaches and staff members themselves. This week, Kansas linebacker Dasan McCullough joins Birminology to talk about his recruiting and his relationships with the Ohio State staff and commits.
Ohio State has been in the driver’s seat to land linebacker Dasan McCullough for some time now but there remains plenty of work to be done if the Buckeyes are going to ultimately land his commitment.
McCullough, the son of Kansas City Chiefs running backs coach Deland McCullough, has more than 40 early scholarship offers and a host of top schools he’d like to visit before making a college choice.
But as the recruiting dead periods forced by Covid-19 continue, the now 6-foot-5, 220-pound athlete from Olathe (Ks.) Blue Valley North recognizes that he may not get the chance to handle his recruitment as he’d like to — at least not entirely.
And no team is in a better position to capitalize on an early decision from McCullough than Ohio State is. The country’s No. 8-ranked athlete could play linebacker, safety or defensive end, and as he continues to grow physically, he continues to grow his relationship with Buckeyes linebackers coach Al Washington and Ohio State commitment C.J. Hicks as well.
What is going to be the different in the commitment of Dasan McCullough? How important is the relationship his father has with an Ohio State assistant coach? When is going to make his next visit to Ohio to see his family and when does he want to make a college decision?
The young prospect talks about those things and more on the latest edition of Lettermen Row’s Birminology
