Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 4/12 - A couple Friday visitors, scholarship offer reactions (Lghl)
Two Friday visitors, '14 TE Daniel Helm and '15 OL Rob Dowdy, visit Columbus today. Also, Urban Meyer dishes out three new offers.
Today, Ohio State plays host to two "big" targets. One is 6-4, 220-pound tight end Daniel Helm from Glenwood High School in Chatham, Illinois. Helm will first visit Ohio State before making another trek to Ann Arbor on Saturday. Michigan has already issued him a scholarship and reportedly lead for his services. Other than Michigan, Helm has been offered by Ole Miss, Tennessee, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and many other major programs. Our Charles Doss caught up with Helm and briefly asked about his recruitment and upcoming visit:
"I'm in contact with Coach [Tim] Hinton the most. I'm just trying to get to know as much as I can about the school, the offense, and the coaches while I'm there. I really want to explore how the tight end is used in their offense."
Ohio State has reached out to a plethora of tight ends in the 2014 recruiting class, but I would not be at all surprised if Helm received a verbal offer today. With the staff surely aware of his impending Ann Arbor visit, they may want to throw a wrench in Brady Hoke's plans. Something tells me a "wow" visit and an offer from none other than Urban Meyer might give Helm something to think about. Snag a glance at his highlights from last season:
When Michigan steps into the Big House for its annual spring game Saturday, it won't just be looking to make strides on the field. It will be looking to make them off it, as well. Many of the Wolverines' top recruiting targets will be attendance, one of which will be Clairton (Pa.) Thomas Jefferson High linebacker Chase Winovich. It will be the Keystone State star's second trip to Ann Arbor. If it's anything like his first, it will bode well for Wolverines' chances in his recruitment.
"The experience was really cool," Winovich said recalling the early March visit. "(Michigan assistant) Coach (Darrell) Funk showed me around and took several hours out of Sunday to show me around the athletic facilities and sit with me for the basketball game. He is obviously a really good guy. It made a really good first impression on me. I had the opportunity to sit down with Coach (Mark) Smith, the linebacker coach, and he explained to me where I (would play) and what they'd want me to do. I like Michigan a lot. Another thing in Michigan's favor is my brother only lives 45 minutes away, so it's really convenient for me with him being there. He lives in Toledo and played at Bowling Green."
Raekwon McMillan recruit diary (247sports)
Meet Raekwon McMillan, the country's No. 1 inside linebacker prospect. A lifelong resident of Hinesville, Ga., a town about four hours southeast of Atlanta, McMillan burst onto the recruiting scene last spring and now is among the most coveted prospects in the entire country.
At last check, he had 41 offers
Right now, Ohio State leads, but McMillan has said he probably won't announce until the 2014 Under Armour All-America Game. In other words, there is a long way to go before his recruitment is over. He also mentions schools such as Alabama, Clemson, Georgia and Florida prominently.
McMillan has agreed to produce a twice-a-month diary for 247Sports in which he will talk about his recruitment -- and his personal life. In this first installment, McMillan discusses life in Liberty County, Ga., and looks back at his beginnings in football.
I first started playing football when I was 8 years old.
Back then, I was a chubby kid. I played on the offensive and defensive lines at first. That's because I was over the weight limit. I think when I was 10, the limit was like 120 pounds. I was already about 126 or something like that.
After I played as a lineman, I trimmed down and ended up at running back. That was back in middle school. I also played middle linebacker, but I used to love running back.
In high school, though, I got the memo that I was gonna have to change.

DeShaun Watson, Gainesville (Ga.)
There is zero doubt that the Clemson commitment will have all eyes on him Friday afternoon. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound very productive signal caller threw for 4,024 yards and 50 touchdowns as a junior, as well as rushing for 1,441 yards for the 5A state champions. Watson, who continues to entertain offers from Ohio State, Georgia, Auburn and others, is the No. 56 ranked prospect in the 247Composite, and the No. 5 ranked pro-style quarterback.
