Scout $ - Four-Star Safety Visits Rivals '14 OH S Erick Smith
- By The Bank...quick recaps of his camp at OSU and his first ever visit to Michigan.
Welcome to another edition of the Ohio State Football Recruiting Notebook. It has been another busy week in the world of recruiting and we're here to catch you up on the latest.
The biggest news of the week came just hours ago when Brooklyn (NY) Erasmus Hall athlete Curtis Samuel committed to Ohio State, becoming the 17th member of Urban Meyer's 2014 class.
There is another top prospect in the '14 class who is high on the Bucks and is looking to set his official visits.
We also have a few Buckeye related notes on top prospects in the 2015 class.
Also, a bevy of players with Buckeye offers committed to other schools. We'll tell you who and where they decided to commit.
Kyle Allen | QB | 6-2, 185 | Desert Mountain (Scottsdale, Ariz.) | Texas A&M
Completed 202 of 280 passes for 3,119 yards and 36 touchdowns.
Mark Andrews | TE | 6-6, 230 | Desert Mountain (Scottsdale, Ariz.) | Oklahoma
Had 81 catches for 1,494 yards and 21 touchdowns.
George Campbell | WR | 6-3, 184 | East Lake (Tarpon Springs, Fla.) | Michigan*
Had 30 catches for 766 yards and five touchdowns and had 57 tackles as a defensive back.
Nick Chubb | RB | 5-11, 217 | Cedartown, Ga. | Georgia
Ran for 2,721 yards and 38 touchdowns on 312 carries.
Mason Cole | OL | 6-7, 275 | East Lake (Tarpon Springs, Fla.) | Michigan
Four-year starter's blocking helped current Central Florida quarterback Pete DiNovo pass for a county-record 6,733 yards and 59 touchdowns in his career.
A surprising decommit takes the national recruiting scene by storm late at night, plus, as expected, a former Ohio State lean pledges elsewhere.
Before we get into the big news of the day that was, some late breaking news last night caught a lot of folks on the national recruiting scene rather off guard. Long time Georgia commit, Nick Glass, who'd been a vocal recruiter for the 'Dawgs' 2014 class after initially thought to be a 'soft verbal' before his junior year, decommitted from UGA.
Though he told our Ian Cuevas "all of the other schools still have a chance" last July, as mentioned, he'd been a real rock for the Georgia class of late, often taking to Twitter to tease commitments before they happened. While Ohio State was recruiting him hard a year ago, it's tough to say whether or not the 3-star APB would be a viable target of interest for the Bucks at this point given their scholarship limitations.
2014 Florida Speedster Likes Meyer, Buckeyes (The Ozone)
Standing 5-11 and 175 pounds, wide receiver Johnnie Dixon is one of the most sought after recruit in the Sunshine State for the class of 2014.
A product of Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Garden, Fla., Dixon already holds offers from a number of top schools around the country, including Alabama, Miami, Florida and Florida State. He is the 9th-ranked player in the state of Florida for the 2014 class and No. 97 nationally according to MaxPreps.com.
Despite his gaudy list of offers, Dixon is still a little bit under the radar as far as recruiting hype goes for the current junior class. That could change in a hurry, especially if his reported 4.39 40 time is accurate.
