The country's No. 2 running back recruit was sporting some Ohio State gear as he arrived at Nike's "The Opening Finals" in Oregon. 

Akers, a 5-foot-11, 205-pound tailback out of Mississippi, showed up to the national recruiting event wearing an Ohio State hat. 

The Buckeyes are one of Akers' leaders.

Don't get too excited, though, Buckeye fans. Akers was supporting Florida State earlier and was wearing a Tennessee bracelet. He says he'll be wearing Georgia gear today. 

Akers is ranked the No. 2 player at his position and the No. 16 player in the class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings

Ohio State and Ole Miss are believed to be the favorites to land the elite running back.
