Scott names USC his leader (palmetto sports)
Junior RB Derrell Scott of Havelock, NC has USC as his leader with Florida State and Ohio State rounding out his top three in no order. Scott took in his second USC home game Saturday when the Gamecocks defeated Georgia. "It went great," said Scott. "I love the atmosphere there." Something else has him interested in USC. "I love the coaches there and coach (Brad) Lawing is telling me that if I work hard, I would have a chance to play early," he said. "I like that." Scott also attended the East Carolina game. Other than those two games he has not taken a visit. Scott said he could go to FSU or Ohio State for a visit but remains unsure. He has USC, FSU, Ohio State, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Vanderbilt, UCLA and "schools like that" as the schools showing him the most interest. He plans to take his time before committing.
Pennsylvania has always been an important recruiting ground for high school football talent, especially for schools in the Midwest and along the East Coast.
Former Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel made Buckeye in-roads in his neighboring state to the east, consistently pulling out top Keystone State talent during his decade of Big Ten dominance.
Longtime recruiting grounds for Penn State and Pitt, Ohio State has been able to consistently recruit a number of top players out of Pa. Urban Meyer may have spent most of his coaching career in the South or out West, but he’s well aware of the fact there are big time players in Pennsylvania.
One of his first big “gets” as the new head coach of the Buckeyes was 5-star defensive end Noah Spence out of Harrisburg, and now Meyer is going after is Monroeville, Pa. ATH Montae Nicholson.
Nicholson can play WR, S and CB, but the Buckeyes are looking at him specifically as a safety in the class of 2014. He is originally from Ohio, but Nicholson is currently being coached by Don Smith, who played under Jacky Sherrill at Pitt. Coach Smith’s teammates were Dan Marino and Ohio State’s favorite ESPN commentator: Mark May.
Montae has some great tutelage from an experienced coach. Do the Buckeyes have a chance at this athlete or does Pitt hold the advantage? He talked to The-Ozone about his recruiting situation.
OT Dorian Johnson loved Ohio State (espn insider)
Offensive tackle Dorian Johnson (Belle Vernon, Pa./Belle Vernon) liked his experience at Ohio State so much, the ESPN 150 recruit would like to make another trip to The Horseshoe in a few weeks.
In town Saturday for the Buckeyes’ 63-38 win over Nebraska, Johnson -- who is ranked second in the nation at his position and No. 27 overall -- has already started talking about coming back on Nov. 24 for the Michigan game. The 6-foot-6, 285-pound Johnson isn’t sure whether or not it will be an official visit, but he knows he wants to see the campus again.
Ohio State Recruiting: Finishing Strong in 2013 (The buckeye battle cry)
After a big recruiting weekend that included plenty of players visiting for the memorable victory over Nebraska, there is renewed speculation in Buckeye circles projecting how Ohio State will finish their 2013 class.
The first thing that most people worry about is how many scholarships are left. The general consensus is that the Buckeyes will sign a total of around 22 players.
Either way, with 17 players currently committed, it looks like the Buckeyes will sign at least 5 more members in the class.
Here is a position by position look at who might fill those spots.
Buckeyes offer Moore; Bain in limbo (espn insider)
Three-star linebacker Skai Moore (Davie, Fla./University School) was offered Tuesday night by Ohio State and will take an official visit to the school Oct. 20, according to University School coach Roger Harriott.
The offer was extended after a conversation between Moore and Ohio State assistant Stan Drayton.
“Ohio State has been interested recently and they offered Skai last night,” Harriott said. “They have already set up the official visit for the Purdue game.”
Dublin (Ohio) Scioto fullback William Houston has been doing it all for his high school team this year, and Big Ten teams are taking notice.
Houston, who already has a Bowling Green offer, has around 1,500 rushing yards, 500 receiving yards and 30 touchdowns this season through seven games. Those numbers have drawn the interest of Illinois, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State and Vanderbilt. Most of them are looking at him as a preferred walk-on, but some are still evaluating his senior film and could offer.
If it came down to going to Bowling Green as a walk-on or a BCS program, Houston is not sure which way he would go.
