Before we get started with today's edition, just wanted to give an update. As of today, I will be releasing the Quick Bits post as norm here in the recruiting forums, only difference will be the time. I am going to try my best to put it out around the same time every night. Right now it will look like to be Monday-Friday between 6-7pm and on Sunday at the same time for the weekend news. This will help you guys out, for anybody that stares at 11W all day, so you know when to expect the thread. Thanks for reading as always!

Keep Calm and Trust Urban Meyer or How 2015 Might Finish, Part One (11W)

We're a couple hours away from a SARS-level panic from sweeping over Ohio State fans on Twitter, message boards and anywhere else football recruiting is discussed. We're three-plus hours away from Penn State and first-year head coach James Franklin adding two more four-star commitments, both of whom were big targets for the Buckeyes. Brandon Wimbush, the nation's 5th-rated quarterback and offensive lineman Sterling Jenkins will become Penn State's 14th and 15th commitments for 2015.

Monday proved to be a busy day for Ohio State recruiting, as the Buckeyes were able to make the cut for two of the top prospects in the class of 2015 that released a list of the schools still being considered. The first, '15 DE Darius Fullwood, released a list of top five colleges he was still interested in. In no order, Fullwood listed Virginia Tech, Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Ohio State, and Miami.

Core6 Athletes, a training and recruiting firm based out of the Chicago area, has helped many prospects land division one scholarships over the last few years including current Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, and even future Buckeyes, offensive lineman Jamarco Jones, and defensive end Dylan Thompson. And they're invading Columbus this weekend.

For someone that has had limited time the past couple of months to follow recruiting extensively, I thank you for the concise summaries that are Quick Bits, Gene!

Jalen Merrick has become one of my favorite OL recruits. I literally laughed when he destroyed that poor guy in the second clip of his highlights.
