Michigan football commit Mike McCray, son of former Ohio State captain, receives offer from Buckeyes
And now, the Buckeyes are coming after him.
McCray, who committed to the Wolverines on March 6, has been offered by Ohio State, according to a tweet from Tony Gerdeman of fan site The-Ozone.net. The offer has since been confirmed by other outlets.
An interesting wrinkle in the situation is McCray's father, Mike McCray Sr., was a captain for the Buckeyes in the 1980s.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has already flipped several notable Big Ten recruits, including Michigan State's top 2012 recruit, Se'Von Pittman, and Wisconsin offensive lineman Kyle Dodson.
Michigan has yet to lose a committed player to Meyer.
Could McCray be the first?
Scout's Bill Greene, who covers Ohio recruiting and is close to McCray, said he would be "shocked if Michael did anything but say thanks, but no thanks."
"The hardest thing to do is to predict what these teenagers are going to do, but personally, I think he's solid to Michigan," Greene added. "Now, he could commit to Ohio State by 3 o'clock and I'll end up looking like an idiot, but I'd be really surprised if he decommits."
Greene said when McCray decided to commit to Michigan, he called Ohio State to inform them of his decision. The Buckeyes asked him to wait because they hadn't finished determining whether to offer him, but he proceeded with the commitment anyway.
"He said, 'No, I found the right school for me,' and that tells me he's solid to Michigan," Greene said. "He would have waited if he was serious about Ohio State.
"Again, I haven't talked to him yet about all of this, but I'd just be really surprised if this had any kind of affect on his commitment."
