2016 OL Tyler Gerald Enjoys Buckeye Visit (11W)

dada
Ohio State's football team hosted a number of prospects from the around the region on Saturday and Portsmouth lineman Tyler Gerald was one of them on campus. With a Kent State offer to his credit, Gerald is starting to see an uptick in his recruiting and today's Buckeye visit will serve as a bit of a barometer for him moving forward.

"I liked the facilities, from the practice fields to the meeting rooms," Gerald told 11W of the visit to Columbus. "It was good experience for how the college atmosphere is."

Gerald is being recruited by Ohio State's Tom Herman, and he enjoyed the chance to talk with the Buckeyes' offensive mastermind this past weekend.

Good Counsel DL Darius Fullwood opens up about college football recruiting process (Washington Post)

adada

Darius Fullwood gets it — people want to know where he’s going to attend college.

But with the highly touted Good Counsel defensive end more than two months away from the end of his junior year and even further away from making his college choice, Fullwood is stuck in the recruiting carousel, doing his due diligence by making unofficial visits while politely answering the same variation of questions from recruiting analysts day after day.

So rather than ask Fullwood about his latest college visit (which he, of course, appreciated) or rehash his long list of offers (he’s up to 18 from the likes of Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State and Virginia Tech), I decided to give both him and readers a break from the monotony and ask what people really wanted to know about the 6-foot-4, 230-pounder. Enjoy.

Faster than Dontre Wilson? Cornerback Denzel Ward, one of the fastest players in Ohio, visits Ohio State: Buckeyes recruiting (Plain Dealer)

ada

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Macedonia (Ohio) Nordonia cornerback Denzel Ward has heard recruiting experts refer to him as the fastest player in the state of Ohio. But not even Ward knew the extent of his speed.

Asked what his fastest recorded 40-yard dash time, Ward responded with 4.31 seconds.

Ohio State sophomore receiver Dontre Wilson, regarded as the fastest player on the Buckeyes' roster, runs a 4.33.

"Dontre Wilson runs a 4.33?" Ward asked. "Really? Now way."

Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 3/31 - Tyler Gerald talks visit, Trevor Thompson to visit (LGHL)

ada

See what class of 2016 offensive lineman Tyler Gerald had to say about his visit and much more Ohio State recruiting news from over the weekend.

Ohio State had quite a few prospects on campus Saturday, including class of 2015 studs, David Robbins, Chris Green, Jabari Greenwood and Darius Fullwood, who named the Buckeyes his leader over Penn State, Kentucky, Miami and others, after ending his weekend trip to Columbus.

Fullwood, a 6'4 240-pound, three-star defensive end out of Good Counsel High School in Olney, Maryland, has OSU in the driver's seat, mostly due to the outstanding relationship he has built with newly hired defensive line coach Larry Johnson during the recruiting process.

Land-Grant Holy Land had the opportunity to catch up with Darius and had him tackle a few questions on subjects from his bond with Johnson to what caught his eye during the Buckeyes spring practice.

Nice work Gene.  You are the man.

I don't always downvote, but I do always downvote a Michigan fan trolling the Buckeye boards.
