    I don't think he will. He has been very up front through this entire process.

    Have you been paying attention to both Doug and his father throughout the recruiting process? Doug has been excited about being a Buckeye and the friendships he has already started with Boone, Denlinger, and Laurinaitis, among others. He has said from day 1 that he is taking these visits for 2 reasons...1) because he promised his father he would because his father never had a chance to visit some of the schools Doug has been visiting and 2) in case anything happens with the NCAA he will have other options. He has said numerous times to several to reporters from several different website that unless somethings major happens with the NCAA, he is signing with the Buckeyes on NLOID. Richard Wasington took his visits because he was not convinced he had made the right decision when he verballed to OSU. Worthington has said that all he wants is to be a Buckeye. In my opinion, Worthington and Washington are nothing alike...

    "The bottom line is that I liked Florida, I like all the places I've visited, but I'm Ohio State all the way. I'm taking my visits just in case because I don't want to get caught unprepared in case anything happens with OSU, but as long as they start out of trouble before Feb. 2, I'll be a Buckeye."

    I rest my case...

    What set Washington apart is that he led OSU to believe he would sign right up until signing day - then back doored them. It was also at a time when you could only send out as many LOIs as you had ships and it likely cost OSU Buster Davis.

    (Sorry, its recruiting season and I just had to type 'Buster Davis' at least once.)

    Great point...Washington held his presser with both an OSU and a NCSU LOI in front of him. Worthington will only have one LOI in front of him on 2/2...

    the rumored story was that bowden got amato to convince washington to not speak with the osu staff before signing day so that osu would send the LOI to Washington and not to Avis since RW would have told them he was going to NCST. No LOI for Avis got him to FSU.

    Just a rumor, but it wouldnt surprise me in the least.
