Ohio OL visits Iowa

Big Ohio offensive lineman Tate Leavitt is using his spring break this week to get out and visit some of the Big Ten schools showing early interest. On Wednesday and Thursday, the 6-foot-7, 295-pound Leavitt made a stop in Iowa City to learn more about the Hawkeyes and get to know the Iowa coaching staff.

"It went really well," said Leavitt. "I took a tour of the stadium and all of the facilities. Then I sat in on a meeting with the offensive line, which was awesome. We watched some film and then headed out to practice. Afterwards, I talked to the coaches some more and then we were on our way."

The visit gave Leavitt an opportunity to meet Brian Ferentz, who is Iowa's new offensive line coach and also recruits the state of Ohio for the Hawkeyes. The Class of 2013 prospect said he was impressed by what he saw from Ferentz during practice on Thursday.

"I love Coach Ferentz," Leavitt said. "I just really like his personality and the way that he coaches. You can just tell how much he enjoys coaching and loves the game and as a player that's something you really like to see."
