Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 2/13 - 4 new offers (LGHL)

Conner Dyer

The Buckeyes staff would remain active on the recruiting trail on Wednesday. Two days after adding '15 safety Ben Edwards, the third member of the 2015 class, Ohio State sent out four new offers.

From the state of Texas, '15 OT Conner Dyer picked up an offer from the Buckeyes. The big 6'4", 276-pound lineman is ranked as a 4-star prospect. Dyer is currently rated as the 14th best offensive tackle in the class, as well as 22nd in the lone star state and 137th in the country. Ohio State joins Baylor, Oklahoma, Oregon, Stanford, Texas A&M and others to offer a scholarship to Dyer.

Ohio State recruiting: 2015 RB Dexter Williams speaks on offer (LGHL)

Dexter Williams

The Buckeyes offered class of 2015 running back Dexter Williams earlier this afternoon. See what Williams' had to say about adding a scholarship offer from OSU and more.

In what seems to be an almost daily occurrence, the Ohio State football team offered a prospect from the state of Florida a full ride scholarship. Dexter Williams, a 5'11 190-pound speedster, out of Orlando's Olympia High is the latest Sunshine State prospect to receive an offer from the Buckeyes. Williams told Land-Grant Holy Land that he found out about the offer while talking on the telephone with OSU assistant Stan Drayton.

"We had a good conversation." Dexter stated. "We talked about life and about the program and what it has to offer me." He said of his conversation with Drayton.

The Buckeyes are joined by the Florida Gators, Miami Hurricanes and South Carolina Gamecocks as teams that have offered Williams, who rushed for nearly 1,100 yards as a junior, so far during the recruiting process, but the doesn't mean he is taking his opportunity to suit up in the historic scarlet and gray lightly.

Ohio State recruiting: Tyler Jordan, '15 OT, talks Buckeye offer (LGHL)

Tyler Jordan

Ohio State has made a habit of handing out offers to some of the top players in the state of Florida over the past couple of weeks, with the latest offer being handed out to Jacksonville (FL) Bishop Kenny offensive tackle Tyler Jordan. Jordan's recruitment has been blowing up over the past couple of weeks..

The 6'5, 270-pound tackle received a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes when he was on the phone with Ohio State tight ends coach Tim Hinton earlier today.

"Coach Hinton and I were talking back and forth on Facebook and he messaged me and basically told me to call him, so I called him up and he said that he liked my film a lot. He thought I was aggressive and he wanted to offer me a scholarship," Jordan said of receiving an offer from the Buckeyes.

While he isn't too familiar with the Buckeyes just yet, as they just recently started to express interest in his services, he's very excited about the offer, especially after growing up watching Urban Meyer's Florida teams.

Gene/Birm/Jordan, et al:

Is this a particularly strong year in the Sunshine State for recruiting? We are blanketing the state with offers.

Just wondering, with something like 130 offers out there already, how many is too many? Are they all committable? I trust the staff when it is all said and done, but this is a very different strategy than what we have seen in the past (before Urban).
