Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 3/10 - Tyus Battle, Matthew Moyer, Justin Roberts visit (LGHL)

Tyus Battle
The Buckeyes basketball team had a number of prospects on campus for the Michigan State game. Find out who watched OSU beat the Spartans and more news from the weekend.

It was a rather quiet weekend on the Ohio State football front with the basketball squad not just taking the headlines with an awesome, hard fought senior day victory over Michigan State, but also in recruiting. Thad Matta and staff didn't just beat the Spartans in front of thousands of screaming Buckeye fans, but a number of recruits.

Future Buckeye Dave Bell (Garfield Heights), a recent class of 2014 signee, 2016 standouts Tyus Battle (Newark, NJ/Gill St. Bernard's School), Matthew Moyer (Gahanna Lincoln) and 2017 guard Justin Roberts (Indianapolis, IN/Pike) all happened to watch Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith win their last home game in the Scarlet and Gray on Sunday afternoon over the 22nd ranked Spartans.

Most of you are fully aware of the 6'10 power forward, Bell, but might not be that familiar with the aforementioned talented underclassman.

A little over a week after OSU assistant Grep Paulus flew to watch him action, the eighth overall player in the 2016 class (According to the 247Sports Composite), Tyus Battle got an up close and personal view of the Buckeye program. Battle, a 6'5 slasher, who plays for the USA U17 team, has scholarship offers from not just Matta and OSU but also Syracuse, Indiana, UConn, Villanova and a long list of other solid teams.

Why does Gibson keep playing WR at camps when he wants to be a QB at the next level?  I'm confused as to why he would camp as a WR when he doesn't want to play that position.

From what I read(it was on VolNation, not sure it can be trusted), he struggled at QB, so he was moved to WR.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

How dead set he wants to be a QB it seems like he might take it as a smack in the face to be asked to go join the WRs in a camp type setting.

I speak the truth but I guess that's a foreign language to yall.~~Lil Wayne
