For four-star running back/defensive back Greg Garmon, the recruiting process is beginning to take shape. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound prospect from Erie (Pa.) McDowell is working on setting up his official visits and despite the speculation that he would be visiting Ohio State this weekend, that visit has been postponed for the time being.

"I was supposed to visit Ohio State this weekend but it's my homecoming week and I'm in the homecoming court," Garmon said. "I think I'm probably going to go down in a few weeks after the Iowa visit (for the Ohio State/Wisconsin game). I've been talking to coach (Paul) Haynes, coach (Luke) Fickell, and coach (Jim) Bollman."

Garmon will make his first official visit on October 15th as he is scheduled to visit Iowa as the Hawkeyes host Northwestern.

"I've just got that one visit setup to Iowa," he explained. "I just talked to Illinois and I'm trying to set something up, they're supposed to call me back with the details."

Garmon's list of top schools has fluctuated quite a bit over the summer with new schools going on and off of his list but right now there seems to be a solid group of six schools that Garmon is focused on.

"Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Texas A&M, North Carolina, and Ohio State (are still involved)," he said. "Right now, those are my top six but I'm still open to other schools, too."

Most schools are recruiting Garmon as a running back, however Ohio State has told Garmon that they are looking at him on the defensive side of the football. Garmon said he prefers to play on the offensive side of the ball, but hasn't ruled out playing defense.

"All of the schools that are recruiting me are saying running back except for Ohio State," he said. "Ohio State is saying corner/defensive back. Right now I'm still in the air about playing offense or defense."

Garmon said he doesn't have a timeframe on his decision but that it definitely won't come until he has taken his five official visits. Garmon also added that in addition to Iowa, Illinois, and Ohio State, that he hopes to make Michigan one of his five official visits.
