Ohio State coach Urban Meyer knows plenty about the Mississippi Junior College, dating back to his days at Florida.
The unbeaten and fourth-ranked Buckeyes are recruiting East Mississippi Community College offensive lineman Avery Gennesy, who visited Columbus over the weekend.
"The visit went great," Gennesy told BuckeyeGrove.com. "I spent a lot of time with the coaches and players. I really loved it out there, the city, the atmosphere; it was just a great time out there."
Last year, Ohio State signed Lions wide receiver Corey Smith.
East Mississippi is ranked second nationally and plays host to No. 6 Gulf Coast CC in a MACJC playoff game on Saturday at 2 p.m.
