All-star games land local Buckeyes' commitment

Charlotte Christian linebacker/fullback David Durham, a longtime commitment to Ohio State, has been invited to participate in two more post-season all-star games. He’s already played in the independent schools’ Shrine Bowl, and was voted a captain of the N.C. squad.

There's more to come for the NCISAA all-state selection, though.

Durham is one of 40 players in the U.S. chose to participate in the Aloha Prep Bowl in Hawaii Dec. 12. He has also been selected to participate in the Offense-Defense Bowl in Myrtle Beach on Jan. 2.

Oh, and he’s getting a bit of high-profile company today—Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel and linebackers coach Luke Fickell are stopping by for an in-home visit today, according to Durham’s dad, Ken.

All that means Durham can’t wrestle for his school until January—unfortunate because he was an all-state wrestler in Texas as a sophomore and junior.

not the only school he stopped by. His first stop was at Ardrey Kell yesterday. You would need to talk to the football coach to see what player(s) he is interested in.

He saw former OSU player Jeff Davidson's son.
