Though just a sophomore, Springfield (Ohio) wide receiver Thaddeus Snodgrass is already firmly on Ohio State's radar. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound prospect took in his second Ohio State game of the season this past Saturday.

"(The atmosphere) was still the same even though they were losing," said Snodgrass. "Everybody was still loud and stuff. They had a lot of young receivers playing and it looked like they were having trouble getting off the jams."

Snodgrass has started to build a relationship with Director of Football Operations, Greg Gillum, and he caught up with Gillum again before the game.

"I only talked to coach (Greg) Gillum (Saturday)," he said. "He was just asking me how I was doing and how my season was going."

Snodgrass holds an early verbal offer from Toledo and is hearing from some of the top programs in the nation. Still, it's the Buckeyes that sit at the top right now for the big-time speedster.

"Ohio State is probably showing the most interest right now," he said. "Ohio State is at the top of my list."

Snodgrass hasn't been to any other schools yet for unofficial visits but he's hoping to change that by the end of the month.

"I'm planning to go down to Alabama," he said. "I might go down for the Tennessee game (on October 22nd). I'm looking forward to seeing how the atmosphere is there."

On the field, Snodgrass suffered a minor setback a few weeks ago when he injured his shoulder. The injury has kept him out the last few weeks and watching his teammates struggle has been difficult to handle.

"It's been tough because some of the games we lost by a lot and I feel like I could have been contributing," he said. "(The coaches) haven't been able to run as many plays as they can when I'm in there."

Snodgrass is expected to miss another game this weekend but should be back the following week. He hopes to finish his sophomore season on a strong note.

"I just want to win those last three games and improve on my consistency and being a leader," he said.
