Hey Buckeye fans,

Just wanted to share yet another recruiting thread, but this time talk about someone who may becoming a popular target as of late for the good guys in scarlet and gray. As we all know, our offense and Urban need highly skilled receivers in order to function at the level we desire. We were once the "clown show", but as of late are competing at a much higher level with Smith, Spencer, Brown, Wilson, etc. I am impressed so far with last and this years recruitment of receivers. I really like seeing our numbers expand with the like of Johnson, Brown, etc this season, but I am interested in what you all think of Trevion Thompson and his recruitment as of late?! I was on twitter and came across this...

"jbook™ ‏@jbook37 1h
After Bucknuts Bill Kurelic news on 4 star WR Trevion Thompson I'm convinced OSU will take another WR in this class. Thompson, Malone, Dixon"

Also....

"jbook™ ‏@jbook37 1h
Per Bill Kurelic 4 star WR Trevion Thompson will be making a 3rd and 4th visit to Ohio State. Watch what they do!"

Both of these quotes caught my attention immediately as Trevious is a 4 star receiver out of North Carolina. His ratings on the very biased ESPN site have him in the top 300 prospects and he ranks 147th. He is the 11th best receiver and as far as I'm concerned, I like what is starting to trend. What sparked the attention was a 3rd AND 4th visit! Basically, I am writing to all of you to see if anyone has heard any news or any possibilities that the Buckeyes are now the favorite for Trevion Thompson? Please share with me any news and thoughts. I know the recruitment of John JuJu Smith is starting to get hot, but now Trevion... this gets me excited as you can never have too many weapons on the field. I trust what Meyer is doing obviously, but this Trevion news got me wondering if we are the possible destiniation for his services. Thanks guys! Please feel free to respond and share your news, ideas, and thoughts! Take care and go bucks!

Let's get number 19 Saturday! 0-H!

Don't forget about Gesicki.  Hopefully he is number 19 and then Thompson being 20 on Saturday.

Thanks for the response @BUCKS22 I definitely have not forgot about Gesicki! Really like what I am hearing today as of late on his decision coming tomorrow. My gut and my mind from what I have heard tells me he is ours to lose! What do you mean Saturday for Trevion? Have you heard anything concerning Thompson? Take care!

That was a complete misunderstanding on my part.  When you said lets get 19 on Saturday I thought you were talking about the 19th commit and not the 19th straight victory.  Thats my bad.

Trevion also goes to the same high school that Jamal Marcus went to.

This is definitely exciting news! He could be another nice weapon for the offense to have.
I wonder how things are going with the 6 players that people seem to have pinpointed as our final commits. Lately we have offered another 2014 OL from MN, now we are going after a DB from FL (Rogers), and we are going hard after Thompson and i believe Josh Malone too. Seems like perhaps that staff sees a few of the guys on our current list going elsewhere?
Man this recruiting game is just exhausting, i can't imagine dealing with it day in and day out. God bless whoever does!

Another receiver other than Gesicki? It is going to be very interesting to see how things work out.

I see is still getting Lattimore, Smith (Glenville duo) McMillian, Holley, Mavety.... But with Gesicki, Thompson, and others... this has me curious as well as to who we actually will get! The recruiting game never stops. Excited to see the finished class come signing day!

Gesicki is being recruited as a TE.

TEs are receivers. Allegedly

If i have a next life after this one, I want to come back as a college football recruiter and learn from URBZ.

Thompson is going to try to make it down for the Penn State game. Withers was down there and stopped at his HS during the bye week. I still think Clemson leads, but next weekend would be an opportunity to make up ground. 

It definitely appears that the staff is looking to take another WR in this class. It's still hard to say who, yet.

Do you have a preference between any of the wr's mentioned? 

Jordan Wagner's picture

I'm not sure how the staff rates them, but here is how I would:

1. Josh Malone - Bigger WR. Fast. Elite prospect. 

2. Travis Rudolph - 6'1 is solid size. 

3. Trevion Thompson - Tall receiver. Pretty dang fast too.

4. Johnny Dixon - Might be the second best WR on the list, but we have a lot of smaller guys already.

Big thanks to @JordanWagner for all the help and insight! Cant wait to see how this class finishes out!

Any time! I love talking and reading the recruiting discussions over here. 

Thanks for the great original post!

No mentions of Travis Rudolph in any of these...did we/ do we have any sort of chance with him?

In Urban we trust. That is all

Don't see him leaving the South, specifically the state of Florida.

Trevion goes to Hillside HS over here in Durham, NC...I played high school ball in Cary (Suburn of Raleigh, 10 mins away from Durham) and I'll tell you what Hillside has a great HS program going. I graduted c/o 2011 so I'm not sure if Trevion was getting significant PT at the time but I remember Jamal Marcus TEARING it up (he was a year younger than me). We were not in the same conference as them but we played against some of their conference teams in our out-of-conference schedule. Hillside went undefeated and won the state title that year (Fall of 2010) and they've had multiple D1 players over the past few years. We also scrimmaged against Keith Marshall outta Raleigh and he tore us up, Todd Gurley/Tyquan Lewis were teammates and their school and won multiple state titles  but they are a different size classification than Hillside..they were about an hour away too.There's some good HS talent down here, certainly not at the level of GA, SC, or FLA..but worth looking at. It's cool to see the Buckeyes recruiting some guys down here, and Coach Meyer should continue to look at Hillside and other NC high schools.
