Does Vannett know where he wants to go?

The Buckeyes have made a nice little run on offensive players in the last week in landing quarterback Braxton Miller and wide receiver Evan Spencer but could a tight end be coming soon? Ohio State already has a commit from Jeff Heuerman but definitely wants to take two in this class and Westerville (Ohio) Central high school tight end Nick Vannett is at the top of the list.

Vannett was also looking very closely at Notre Dame for a while before the Irish took a commitment from another tight end to fill their roster need. Notre Dame may have been high on Vannett's list for a while but now it appears that there is a new favorite, but Vannett isn't quite ready yet to announce which school that may be.

"I have my mind made up on where I want to go," Vannett said. "I want to take these visits to those schools to ensure it is the right choice."
