OSU FOOTBALL: Ohio prep passer offered by Buckeyes

After missing out on Virginia prep quarterback, Tajh Boyd, the Ohio State Buckeyes have shifted their focus to an in-state passer.

On Tuesday evening, the Buckeyes offered a scholarship to Kettering Alter quarterback, Austin Boucher.

Boucher, who led the Knights to a Division IV state championship in 2008, committed to Miami University on Sunday. However, that was before OSU head coach Jim Tressel offered the 6-1, 210-pound passer from the Dayton area a scholarship.

Boucher had been a University of Toledo verbal, but backed out of his commitment when Rockets head coach Tom Amstutz resigned from the team.

It is yet to be seen if Boucher will de-commit from Miami and accept Tressel's offer to play for the Buckeyes, who as of right now, have just two quarterbacks on scholarship for next season.
