It's May and it's a weekend, so Ohio State coaches were busy on the recruiting trail. Tom Herman stopped in on one of the country's top wide receivers, Urban Meyer welcomed a pair of prospects – including one of Ohio's best – to Columbus and, oh yeah, Ohio State offered a safety, which is no big deal, but this safety is in middle school.

Great to hear Larry Scott is visiting Ohio State along with George Hill on May 24th.

I noticed that as well Danify. Would be cool if we landed both, but Scott may be MSUs' to lose at this point with us being so high on Harris. Hoping we get some commits over the summer, with high school classes winding down. With so many offers out there, hard to tell who we would take on the spot and who is in the wait and see category.

Know a lot of these latest offers will be "camp offers".

If Scott gets grades in line he will be a buckeye IMO.

Prob really good he is visiting and staying in 2 weeks!

We're still like nine months away, don't think we're quite in the "closing" phase yet.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

B1G_Deal's picture

I follow lot of prep high ball in OH and KY...I'm not alarmed we have top closer in game , but hav to watch out For those coming in territorie where Ohio State usualy successfull

Closing is the key ,, finance and sales people will tell u that all the time . Be real
