One of the biggest stories heading into this weekend's Ohio State/Wisconsin game was the outstanding group of junior prospects that were expected to attend. One of the top juniors that made it to Columbus on Saturday night was Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central linebacker Tim Kimbrough. The 6-foot-1, 220-pound prospect had a great time on his visit to Ohio Stadium.

"I just liked the game because there was a lot of adversity," said Kimbrough. "Ohio State did a great job and it was a great game to watch."

Kimbrough struggled to find the words to describe the atmosphere inside the stadium but was clearly impressed with what he experienced.

"The crowd was just crazy," he said. "I don't even know what to say, it was just crazy."

Much of Kimbrough's focus during the game was on watching the linebackers, particularly senior Andrew Sweat.

"I was watching how the linebackers move and get to the ball and stuff," he said. "The main person I was watching was number forty-two. He seemed like he made a lot of tackles and I think he had a good game."

Ohio State running backs coach Dick Tressel recruits the Indianapolis area for Ohio State and has been by Warren Central several times over the last year. Kimbrough was also able to speak with his main recruiter on Saturday.

"I talked to Dick Tressel," he said. "He just said he was going to be watching my film and that he was happy to see me and that he would be watching out for me."

Overall, Kimbrough said his trip to Columbus left a big impression and he plans to be a regular visitor to Columbus over the next several months.

"I loved the campus," he said. "Ohio State is going to be one of the main schools that I visit a lot both this year and next year."

On the field, Kimbrough is having a monster junior season and is hoping to lead Warren Central to yet another state championship.

"We just have to stay focused," he said. "If we play to the best of our abilities, and not act like we can just walk through to the state championship, we'll be fine."
