In terms of scholarship offers, this was a big one. At least those were the words of Class of 2014 tight end Mavin Saunders (Houston/Kinkaid), who picked up an offer from Ohio State on Thursday.
The 6-foot-5, 233-pound Saunders has been one of the most intriguing prospects in Texas this spring. He is a former basketball player who was recruited by several schools on the hardwood but decided to take up football last year for the first time. He has just one varsity season under his belt, but coaches like his athleticism and upside since he’s raw on the football field.
