Welcome to another edition of the Ohio State Football Recruiting Notebook. We have a lot to talk about after a very busy week in the world of Buckeye recruiting.
The biggest news of the week came when Urban Meyer and his staff added two more commitments to a very strong 2014 recruiting class. The first commitment came from Demetrius Knox Sunday night. Malik Hooker followed and committed to OSU on Monday night.
We'll also take the look at the remaining offensive line targets of the Buckeyes following Knox becoming the fourth offensive line commitment in this class.

MotSaG Chat with Noah Brown (men of the scarlet and gray)
Noah Brown the Wide Receiver from Sparta, New Jersey was a pleasure to interview and I think all Buckeye fans will soon get the chance to call him a Buckeye. Noah is an outstanding athlete that Ohio State would love to have. Noah is 6 2″ 211 lbs and is being recruited to play the X receiver which in the outside spot in our offense. Noah is is physical enough to beat press coverage and fast enough with his 4.58 40 yard dash to run past you on screens. Noah recently came off a visit to Ohio State and named us his leader, watch out for this guy Buckeye fans there is serious interest between both parties.
UM in recruiting battle with Bama, Ohio State for two area WRs (palm beach post)
Two of Palm Beach County’s most talented receivers made waves this offseason, rising up national recruiting rankings and drawing scholarship offers from the country’s top college football programs.
Dwyer’s Johnnie Dixon and Cardinal Newman’s Travis Rudolph have shortened their lists of options, and each has Alabama, Miami and Ohio State among their favorites.
Each schools has a legitimate chance to land one of them. Could a program add both players?
Miami has at least broached the subject with Dixon, mentioning the possibility of signing both him and Rudolph, Dixon’s former teammate at Cardinal Newman. If they land Dixon and Rudolph, Miami would have the area’s top three prospects on the PBGametime Big Board and four of the top six. Miami already has verbal commitments from Santaluces receiver Darrell Langham and Palm Beach Central offensive tackle Kc McDermott.
Ohio State has always recruited Florida well and what OSU recruiting class would it be without a star from the sunshine state? With Urban Meyer at the helm, someone who is established well in Florida, there will almost never be a recruiting class without a Florida star; or will there? As of now, the 2014 recruiting class has no one from the sunshine state committed.
Last year had Joey Bosa and James Clark and the year before had Riquan Southward (though he later transferred). 2011 had Jeremy Cash, Jeff Heuerman, and Ryan Shazier but 2014 is void so far and if they get everyone they are targeting then this will be the first class since 2003 not to have a player from FL sign a NLOI (James Louis was from FL and committed but never signed). Florida has been a long time well of water for OSU.
