2017 Four-Star Marcus Williamson Talks Buckeyes (11W)

ada

As new offers roll in for the 2015 recruiting class, the Buckeyes are still looking ahead to 2016 and yes, even 2017 for future stars. One of the brightest stars in the 2017 class is South (Westerville, Ohio) High School's Marcus Williamson, a 5-foot-10, 168-pound cornerback who checks in at number 60 on 247Sports.com's initial rankings.

Austin Andrews Covets Ohio State Offer (11W)

ada

2016 is easily becoming a bumper crop recruiting year for the state of Ohio. The names of Tommy Kraemer, Liam Eichenberg and Jake Hausmann are already nationally known, and they are regarded as some of the best talents in the nation. Saint Francis De Sales' Austin Andrews hopes to join them as one of Ohio's elite in 2016.

Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 8/13 - Ohio State offers Deangelo Gibbs (LGHL)

ada

Kicking things off, Ohio State offered 2016 corner back Deangelo Gibbs. Gibbs is currently ranked a five-star and stands at 6'2 while weighing 200 pounds. There is a chance that he could grow out of his current position and become a safety at the next level. Along with the Ohio State offer, Gibbs also holds offers from Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, and Clemson. From Georgia, the Bulldogs could be the favorite in the early part of his recruitment, but there's a long way to go. The Buckeyes have done well in the state of Georgia in the past and Gibbs could be the next one.

Any reason why Hoops Commits take their official visits to Football games?  I mean, I know the atmosphere is clearly more impressive when you talking about 105,000 fans versus 10 or 15,000, just seems odd.

Bball recruits have a tough time traveling during bball season due to the higher number of games. Weeknight games for tOSU makes it tough as well.

Thanks, Gene. Good stuff, as per usual.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Sounds like Derwin James is planning a visit for The Game.

September 6th is going to be one huge game both on and off the field. That list is unbelievable - so glad Nick Bosa will be here for that game
