CARMEL, Ind. - The Buckeyes are continuing to look for playmakers and may not have to look much further than the neighboring Hoosier State at Austin Roberts who is being recruited as an H-Back or maybe even more as he continues to develop.

The four-star talent is ranked as the No. 170 player in the nation by Rivals.com and holds a slew of offers that includes the likes of Ohio State, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Miami (Fla.), Stanford, Tennessee and USC to name just a few of his 20-plus suitors.

Roberts was on pace to decide in May of 2013 but decided to slow things down on the advice of his father and now is taking a little more time to explore some options and take some trips including ones to both Ohio State and USC in the coming weeks. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder still admits that he would like to decide before the start of his senior season.

Schools are looking at Roberts anywhere from the H-Back position to a big receiver or smaller tight end, but there is no denying that teams see him as a big time offensive weapon as evidenced by a growing list of offers.

We caught up with Roberts on Wednesday as he was finishing up summer classes for the day and got an update on his recruitment, what is making a couple of schools standout and much more in this exclusive video interview.
