As an add on to yesterday's recruiting notebook, news came out that the Buckeyes have offered Cumming, GA long-snapper, Bryce Haynes. Haynes holds offers from UNC, Arkansas, and Utah State and is considered the nation's top at his position. The Bucks usually don't offer schollies to long snappers, so this kid must be good. With Jake McQuaide graduating, the position is up in the air next year, and don't undervalue it's importance. Haynes will take a visit to OSU on December 17th and don't be surprised if he commits while in Columbus.
Another player to watch is Chicago Simeon OL Chris Bryant. Bryant currently favors Michigan over Arizona, Stanford, Illinois, Minnesota, Kansas, and others, but an offer from OSU could change things. Dick Tressel has been to Chicago to visit Bryant and is expected back next week. Bill Kurelic also reported the coaches called him while he was on his visit to Arizona last week. Look for Bryant to potentially get an offer, a move that will help in recruiting his junior teammate, Jordan Diamond. Diamond is regarded as one of the top offensive linemen in the class of 2012 and has the Buckeyes high on his list of consideration.
