Deondre Francois Talks Buckeyes and More (11W)

Francois

When you grow up in Florida and you play football like Deondre Francois did, getting the chance to play at Florida, Florida State or Miami is a big deal. Getting the chance to play at all three? That makes you one of the players in the country, not just the state of Florida. Forget rankings, forget arbitrary "stars," all that matters is when Al Golden, Jimbo Fisher and Will Muschamp say "We want you." 

Welcome to the life of a high school quarterback. Yes, it's Torrance Gibson who gets a lot of attention (deservedly so) from the analysts, but Francois, from Orlando's Olympia High School, isn't paying attention to anything but what's coming next for him, and it's something he's been preparing for.

"Recruiting has really been ramping up for a while," Francois told Eleven Warriors. "I'm enjoying the recruiting process, and I'm adjusting well to the new attention and publicity."

Ohio State is one of the schools that have thrown their hat into the ring for Francois. The Buckeyes offered him a scholarship in mid-February did so without seeing the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder throw in person, a rarity for the Buckeyes.

"Tom Herman was the one who offered me," he said. "They liked my film. I'm hopefully going to get up there over the summer (for a visit.)"

Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 3/6 - Larry Scott, P.J. Mbanasor offered (LGHL)

ggs

The Ohio State staff sends out two new scholarship offers to 2015 prospects on Wednesday. 2015 3-star QB puts the Buckeyes in his top four. Plus, a top in-state offensive lineman will be visiting later this month.

The Ohio State coaching staff stayed busy on the recruiting trail on Wednesday as they sent out two new offers. They also was placed in the top four of a talented dual threat QB as well as getting a visit from an in-state lineman with Buckeye ties.

The first recipient of an Ohio State offer on Wednesday was '15 RB Larry Scott. The Hubbard High School tailback is a 4-star prospect and is the 6th ranked player in the state of Ohio in this recruiting class. Scott has already picked up offers from the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Michigan State, Tennessee and more. The 6'0, 205-pound back also comes in as the 8th overall running back and the 88th best player in the nation. Many believe that Michigan State is in the best position to land the talented back. Did Ohio State jump in a bit too late? We will see.

The other prospect to receive an offer from the Buckeyes was '15 CB P.J. Mbanasor, who is currently committed to TCU. Mbanasor committed to the Horned Frogs back in January but has since picked up offers from Missouri, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss , Wisconsin, Ohio State and a few others. The 4-star CB from Hendrickson High School in Texas told Rivals' Marc Givler that he wants to visit Ohio State. The 6'2, 185-pounder is the 40th ranked player in the lone star state, the 20th at his position and 290th overall for the 2015 class.

Ronald Jones looks like Jamal Charles. Great speed and vision. Would love to land him.

Ronald Jones has a little "Roger Craig" in him, until he turns on the jets. Like how he's not afraid to run between the tackles too, instead of just bouncing it outside all the time.

PJ Mbanasor looks like a really good recruit too. Like how he comes up in run coverage and that he plays bump and press coverages well.

SCOTTC.

Though the "jets" are impressive. I also love the way he runs between the tackles. He is not afraid to dish out some punishment on would be tacklers

Anyone hear how Nicks visit went?
