Apparently this four star receiver was too embarrassed by his home state to sign with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Ohio helped elect the worst president of all time and may bring about the end of our constitution as we know it so this four star receiver has choosen to play in a right to work state who appreciates winners, Alabama.
Ohio State Football: 4-Star Wide Receiver Derek Kief Chooses Alabama over OSU
By David Regimbal on June 16, 2013
Urban Meyer and Ohio State's 2014 recruiting class suffered a blow Sunday night when Derek Kief, a 4-star wide receiver and one of the Buckeyes' top targets, verballycommitted to Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide.  Kief tweeted a link to his website, which had this video of his commitment:A tall, speedy receiver out of Cincinnati, Kief has received more than 20 scholarship offers from schools such as Arkansas, Louisville, Notre Dame, West Virginia and Wisconsin. In the end, it was a three-horse race between Alabama, Kentucky and Ohio State, but the talented wideout couldn't pass on the opportunity to play for a team that has won three of the last four national championships.
A recent visit to Alabama changed the momentum of Kief's recruitment.According to 247Sports.com 's "Crystal Ball Predictions," many recruiting gurus expected Kief to land at Ohio State before the Tide blew him away on his visit last week. Saban, who battles Meyer for many of the same recruits, notched the latest victory by stealing one of Ohio's top high school prospects.
Kief is a very physical receiver who isn't afraid to catch the ball in traffic. At 6'5", his size makes him a matchup nightmare in the red zone. He hauled in 65 receptions for 907 yards and nine touchdowns during his junior season and ended the 2011 and 2012 seasons averaging 14 yards per reception, a mark of the consistency he brings to the field.

He made a choice. Why does this make him too embarrassed by his own state? I fail to see the connection here?

He opted to go play behind a dozen other superstar receivers at bama over walking into a starting position at ohio state.
