This week Eleven Warriors is going to take a look at another top prospect in the 2015 recruiting class who the Buckeyes have serious interest in joining the 2015 class which should be a very big one as scholarship restrictions are set to expire after this year.
Last week we caught up with Dowell twins of Lakewood (OH) St. Edward. This week we are going to take a look at Cincinnati (OH) St. Xavier linebacker Justin Hilliard who has been ranked as Ohio's top junior by 24/7 Sports, the only recruiting website with 2015 rankings out to this date.
The 6-2/225 linebacker has just begun taking serious look at prospective colleges this summer and was able to take in a lot of different college campuses.
"I'm just trying to get as many visits in as possible in order to evaluate the offers I've received," he said. "I think I'm done with camping and am ready to take a closer look at schools who have offered me."
Hilliard got the chance to visit and camp at many top schools across the Midwest this summer.
"I went to Arkansas, Iowa, Michigan State, Michigan, Ohio State, and Notre Dame," he continued. "I thought all of the visits and camps went really well."
The Ohio State camp went particularly well as he performed well enough to earn a scholarship offer from Urban Meyer and the Ohio State coaching staff, which is one of the biggest offers he hold to this date.
"I went up to Ohio State to camp. I didn't really get to see the campus while I was in Columbus," he told Eleven Warriors. "The camp went really well, they offered me afterwards."
