Scout recently unveiled their initial 'Scout 300' list, ranking their top 300 prospects in the 2014 class. As you would expect, Urban Meyer and his staff are in contact with a good portion of them.
Currently, three of the Buckeyes' four commits are on the list, with Damon Webb (35), Parris Campbell (40) and Kyle Trout (122) all bearing mention. Marcelys Jones is not listed, however, and is currently ranked 33rd in the state of Ohio alone.
This far from 2014's signing day, a very wide net has been cast for players. The coaches are searching all over the nation for future Buckeyes. You can see that in number of prospects they are talking to at the moment.
Things will eventually begin to become more concentrated over the next six months, before they then stretch out again next January as the coaches look for another James Clark type of player to get in on late.
Until then, here are some of the prospects on the initial 'Scout 300' that the Buckeyes are talking to.
Player of the week: Jermaine Eluemunor (whole hog sports)
Name: Jermaine Eluemunor
Nickname: London, Big Papi
School: Lackawanna community college
Bench max: 420
Squat max: 395
40-yard dash: 4.89
Number of years playing football:3
Schools that have offered: Alabama, Ohio state, Texas A&M, ASU, FSU, WVU, ECU, Arkansas, Baylor, Texas tech, Florida, Kansas state, Kansas, Oklahoma, USF, Penn state, USC, UCLA, Iowa
Penn State got first crack at making an impression on Lackawanna College offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor and made the most of a Friday visit.
Eluemunor's offer list is a "who's who" of top programs, including Alabama, Texas A&M, Florida, Florida State and Ohio State. The 6-5, 300-pound prospect's trip to Happy Valley was his first official visit, and he said he'll be back in town for the Blue-White game on April 20 and for the Nebraska game on Nov. 23.
Eluemunor is a relative newcomer to football, having picked it up after his family moved to the United States from England when he was 14. While perhaps still in need of some refinement, his rare combination of size, strength and athleticism can't be coached.
Seven junior wide receivers in the Indianapolis area have Football Bowl Subdivision scholarship offers.
Speedway High School’s Justin Brent accepted an offer in July from Notre Dame, his first, leaving Pike’s 6-1, 200-pound Dominique Booth and Carmel’s 6-2, 210-pound Austin Roberts, both four-star prospects, as the top two remaining targets.
Booth owns 20 scholarship offers. Roberts hauled in offers this week from Michigan State and North Carolina State to give him 16.
Roberts, who already had offers from Florida, Ohio State, Stanford, Nebraska and Miami (Fla.), added two-time defending national champion Alabama earlier this month.
