LANCASTER — The college recruiting process still is a bit of a shock to Kyle Trout.
The Lancaster High School junior, received his 10th — and possibly most prestigious — football scholarship offer Saturday, when Ohio State extended an offer.
“At first, it was really overwhelming,” said Trout, a 6-foot-6, 270-pound offensive lineman. “I let it sink in and then just started thinking. It’s just a blessing and an honor.”
KNOXVILLE — The long recruiting process may be nearing an end for Vonn Bell, but the Ridgeland High School safety now enters the hardest part of his college decision.
Bell took his official visit to Tennessee this weekend, his third such trip in as many weeks after visiting Alabama last weekend and Ohio State the weekend of Jan. 12.
In a text message to the Times Free Press late Sunday night, Bell said he had a “great visit” to Knoxville in which he spent time with new Vols coach Butch Jones and his staff and attended Tennessee's basketball game on Saturday.
It was another busy weekend for the Ohio State recruiting staff, as they hosted another key group of recruits, headed by '13 WR/RB Dontre Wilson and '13 WR James Clark. From everything that we've heard so far, both Wilson and Clark had a great time in Columbus. The Buckeyes are recruiting Wilson as a possible slot receiver/running back. Wilson stands at 5'10", 165-pounds and rushed for 1,800 yards and 38 touchdowns during his senior season. He also had 760 receiving yards and nine touchdowns through the air. In all, Wilson contributed 49 total touchdowns for his high school team, something not many can say they did. Wilson will be taking one more visit to Oklahoma State before deciding where he will attend school and is expected to announce on or just before National Signing Day '13.
Anyone that even vaguely follows Ohio State coach Urban Meyer's positional recruiting tendencies can immediately notice a strong emphasis on the offensive and defensive line positions. One of the most highly sought after offensive line prospects in the nation in the 2014 class is 4-star, 6-4 285-pound Sam Mustipher, who holds an Ohio State offer and is strongly considering the Buckeyes.
Mustipher hails from high school powerhouse Good Counsel in Olney, Maryland, and was very impressive to speak with. According to 247Sports' Composite ranking, Sam grades out a 91 overall, is ranked the 225th best overall player in the country, the 13th best offensive guard in the country, and the 7th best overall player in his home state of Maryland. Mustipher and I spoke at length in which we discussed Ohio State, his recruiting process, and much more:
Gary Pinkel and the Mizzou Tigers have done a really good job of keeping the best kids from the area in state for the Class of 2013. The one that got away, may have been the most talented. About ten months ago, Ezekiel Elliot made a pledge to Ohio State.
Back in November, a source told USATodayHSS.com that the door may not be totally closed for Mizzou. The source said Elliott, whose parents both went to Mizzou, would probably listen but was concerned with the backlash from the Ohio State fan base, if he did indeed look around.
Elliott made his official visit to Mizzou this past weekend and according to his father, it couldn't have went better. The highlight for Elliott was the "M-I-Z, E-Z-E" chant at the basketball game.
