One of the top 2017 wide receivers in the midwest visited Ohio State this weekend and came away impressed. Donovan Peoples-Jones of Detroit, MI (Cass Tech) is already garnering attention from Michigan and Michigan State and figures to be a top prospect in Michigan for his class. He stopped by with teammates Damon Webb, Mike Weber and Joshua Alabi for Saturday's student appreciation day practice.
"It went well. It was cool to see many of the OSU students come together and interact with each other. That was an essential factor to see," Peoples-Jones told 11W.
Other highlights for DPJ was getting to "sit in on the WR meetings" and talk with Coach Meyer and Coach Coombs.
The visit to Columbus was the first for Peoples-Jones, who couldn't have picked a better time to see Ohio State as the atmosphere for practice was electric. He also got to know a lot more about the Buckeyes, getting an overview of the program and the school.
Donovan doesn't hold any scholarship offers yet, but expect that to change in the near future. The Buckeyes are certainly interested and Michigan and Michigan State will fight to keep him in-state. Either way, Ohio State continues to make in-roads to Cass Tech, something that will pay major dividends moving forward.
As for where Ohio State currently stands with Peoples-Jones, he said "the Buckeyes are definitely top 5."
Peoples-Jones is obviously a long way away from any sort of decision or commitment, but it's a safe bet that the Buckeyes will be in the mix.
