COLUMBUS, Ohio – Over the last month, 2014 Mineral Ridge (Ohio) running back Devine Redding’s name has started to pop up more often, and teams are taking notice. Redding picked up his first offer on Friday and had a big-time school come visit him Tuesday.
Indiana became the first program to offer Redding when assistant coach Deland McCullough came through Mineral Ridge late last week. After a brief conversation, McCullough extended an offer.
“[McCullough said] I could run through tackles, had good cuts, I was pretty quick through the holes and my outside speed is pretty good,” Redding said.
“… He’s a good guy. I liked him and he was talking to me about keeping your head in the right place, got to do what you got to do and in the long shot it’ll pay off.”
Redding has yet to visit Bloomington, but he will head west to check the school out June 16, while attending a camp there.
Tuesday, Ohio State assistant Ed Warriner came to Mineral Ridge to check up on the 5-foot-10, 187-pound sophomore. Redding did not get to talk with Warriner but was told he will be back at the school again in two weeks. He was also invited to an Ohio State camp this summer.
Cincinnati is coming by the school on Thursday.
