For the 2013 class, one of the biggest priorities for Ohio State will be landing the pledge of Trotwood (Ohio) Madison defensive back Cameron Burrows. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound corner is the No. 1 ranked player in Ohio for the 2013 class by On Wednesday afternoon, Burrows got his first chance to speak with new Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer.

"The new director of player personnel (Mark Pantoni) sent me a message on facebook with a number to speak with coach Meyer," explained Burrows. "It went good. He just wanted me to know that my offer was still on the table and that he's only been there a week but that he knows everything about me already. He said he wants me to come up to meet him and so he can talk to my family and everything."

Burrows plans to take Meyer up on his invitation to come up to Columbus during the winter and an unofficial visit could happen in the very near future.

"Maybe sometime in January or I might just go to a bowl practice," he said. "Coach (Taver) Johnson came to my school yesterday and he wants me to go up there for a bowl practice."

Burrows said he is looking forward to getting to know Meyer better but does know a few things already about the coach.

"I just know that he's a great coach," Burrows said. "He won two national championships at Florida, he's from Ohio, and I know he loves it up here."

Burrows also re-affirmed a top three of Alabama, LSU, and Ohio State (in no particular order) and commented on what each school has done to sit at the top of his list.

On Ohio State - "The coaches come and see me and I talk to them often and I'm in Ohio, I live in Ohio."

On Alabama - "They love football down there, they like me, and they're a good team."

On LSU - "I've been looking at them since like last year when my coach told me that I reminded him of Patrick Peterson. So when that happened, I just started looking at the whole school and everything."

Burrows is fresh off winning a state championship on Friday night as his Trotwood team defeated Avon 42-28 in the Division II final.
