With the National Signing Day for football less than two weeks away, most schools have already filled out their recruiting classes for 2013, but the Ohio Bobcats don’t appear to be done yet. Tuesday evening the ‘Cats received yet another commitment from running back Chris Carson from Parkview High School (Lilburn, GA).
Carson confirmed his commitment via text message but has yet to inform the Ohio coaching staff of his decision.
Carson marks the 17th player to orally commit to Ohio for 2013, joining two JUCO defensive linemen (http://woub.org/2012/12/20/ohio-receives-two-defensive-lineman-commits) who have already signed their National Letters of Intent (NLI).
Carson is 6-foot-1, 200-pounds and is ranked as the 76th best back in the 2013 class, according to ESPN.com. The senior racked up some serious attention on the recruiting trail. Carson had interest from South Eastern Conference schools such as Auburn and Vanderbilt and received offers from 13 schools according to 247Sports.com, including offers from the University of Miami (FL), Kent State and South Florida among others. Carson is the second running back to commit to the 2013 class, joining Baldwin High School (PA) standout Dorian Brown (http://woub.org/2012/10/26/ohio-football-receives-new-commit).
The first day high school players can make their commitments official by signing their NLI is Wednesday, Feb. 6th.
