Good afternoon friends. I do hope your Friday has arrived sans dramatics and that whatever you've got planned for your weekend is interesting or whatever. 

This week, Ohio State's football (and basketball) coaches were back on the recruiting trail, beginning their spring evaluation period of 2015 prospects. On Thursday, specifically, the Buckeyes had coaches all over Georgia and Tennessee among other places. Today's recruiting updates will touch on a few of those visits as well a few other potentially interesting tidbits.

Yesterday was relatively quiet when it comes to Ohio State recruiting, but as always there are still plenty of things to talk about. Let's get started.

Two more offers sent out

The Ohio State coaching staff got things started quickly yesterday when they extended an offer to Tucker (GA) defensive end Jonathan Ledbetter, who is currently committed to play for the Alabama Crimson Tide.

If I had to guess I don't think much will come of this, but Ledbetter has shown he's still willing to visit other schools as he's been on trips to Georgia and Auburn since committing to the Crimson Tide back in January.

I was already thinking that Gantt's highlights reminded me a bit of Elliot's, then at about the one minute mark he laid a hit on some unfortunate kid that was reminiscent of Elliot vs Purdue.  I hope we get this kid, speed and some toughness, particularly for a sophomore.

Why is Tim Settle listed as a visitor?  I thought Alex wrote an article over on 247 that said OSU is no longer recruiting him?

Why aren't we recruiting him anymore?

I read it's b/c we are going after higher talent guys and it is strictly a numbers game. That is only what I read.

This is all just speculation but I assumed its because he was bigger than Meyer/Johnson like. He's well over 300 and Meyer is concerned about playing against hurry up offenses and likes athletic tackles like Bennett and Washington.
