With a football organization that produces some of the Midwest's top talent, a 2016 running back, and a big tackle prospect all expected to visit Columbus, the Buckeyes have an important recruiting week ahead of them. Let's get right into the latest on prospects scheduled to visit Ohio State over the next week.
Welcome to Sunday afternoon and your weekly weekend dose of recruiting rants, raves and reviews. Today we're once again talking gloom, doom and the average Buckeye fan's guide to unrelenting sadness. Let's get straight into what's what, because I know everyone had a few too many mint juleps yesterday and my long-winded introductions could leave you bored to tears.
In 2014, Ohio State identified Johnnie Dixon early as one of their priority recruits for the class despite the long-shot odds they had to pull the South Florida star north. Zach Smith and Urban Meyer felt Dixon was worth the effort and it paid off in December when the Miami star committed to the Buckeyes. It was Dixon's relationship with Meyer and Smith that pushed him away from conventional wisdom — that he'd stay home in sunny South Florida — and towards Columbus.
When it comes to Ohio State recruiting, Urban Meyer's football squad usually steals the headlines away from Thad Matta and the Buckeye basketball program. Not this weekend. Matta landed another commitment for the 2015 cycle on Sunday when 6'5 190-pound Austin Grandstaff, a shooting guard from Rockwall, Texas, jumped on bored after spending the last few days in Columbus on an official visit.
A four-star prospect, Grandstaff, who was once committed to Travis Ford and Oklahoma State, previously held a long list of scholarship offers before deciding OSU was the right fit for him.
Quite a bit has happened in the world of Ohio State football recruiting over the weekend and we're here to get you caught up on all of the latest happenings as we enter a new week.
When it comes to 2016 recruiting it has become clear early in the process that Tampa (Fla.) Catholic wide receiver Nate Craig will be one of the top players in the class when it's all said and done.
