The Ohio State-Michigan game will have served as the anchor for two of the biggest weekends for football recruiting in the class of 2013, when it’s all said and done.
No event on the Ohio State campus attracted more recruits than “The Game” back in November, when Ohio State defeated the Wolverines 26-21 in front of nearly 80 of the top football prospects in the country.
Now, the basketball Wolverines invade Ohio State’s campus on Sunday, just in time for Urban Meyer and his staff to host another huge recruiting weekend in Columbus. With National Signing Day less than a month away, and the 2013 class sitting at 21 scholarship players and five preferred walk-ons, the pace will be furious.
Ohio State will welcome a host of big-name 2013 targets – Shelton Gibson, Chris Worley, Corn Elder,
Ryan Timmons, and the big fish, Vonn Bell – to campus this weekend. They will also bring in a number of key 2014 targets: LB Kyle Berger, DL Dan Cage, DL Eric Smith, DB Damon Webb, and ATH/DB Marshon Lattimore.
A number of Ohio State’s 2013 commits – Marcus Baugh, Joey Bosa, Jalin Marshall, and Vonn Bell’s childhood friend Darron Lee – will also grace the weekend visitors along with 2014 commit Marcelys Jones.
Vonn Bell, a top 50 player by most recruiting services, was rumored to have already made his college decision before he would even schedule official visits but one Urban Frank Meyer decided to pay a trip to Bell’s state championship game in Atlanta. All of a sudden, Bell was not so sure about his decision.
It will be a battle between Nick Saban and Urban Meyer for Bell’s services, but if history repeats itself, Tennessee could also be a more significant player for Bell than people realize.
Last year, recruiting experts had Stefon Diggs to OSU or the University of Florida but in the end, hometown Maryland won out. Tennessee holds a similar place in Bell’s heart as the Terrapins did for Diggs, so do not count out the Vols completely for Bell. Here is a closer look at the remaining 2013 targets coming to campus this weekend and discuss the odds of them signing with the Buckeyes.
