OSU FOOTBALL: Boucher turns down offer

Kettering Alter quarterback, Austin Boucher, who was offered a scholarship by Jim Tressel to play quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes, turned down the opportunity Wednesday night, to honor his commitment to Miami University.

The 6-1, 210-pound passer from the Dayton area, stated that he was honored to get the invite from Coach Tressel, but after a couple days of pondering and praying about his future, Boucher just felt that Miami was a better fit.

As of right now, the Buckeyes have just two quarterbacks — Terrelle Pryor and Joe Bauserman — on scholarship.
