Definitely think Ohio State has a shot to flip him, but I'm also not buying into his Twitter stuff. I think he's looking for attention and doing a bit of trolling as well. 

Also not totally sure how the staff feels about him right now.

I initially had Verdis Brown on there at 11 but then penciled Oats in instead. If Myers and Davis both end up at guard, then Ohio State should be able to get away with one guard and one center in 2018, in my opinion. 

Definitely definitely definitely need at least two tackles though. More names will surely pop up and a lot may depend on how they view Jones' ultimate position.

RE: L'Christian Smith

I don't think the staff is as high on him as the recruiting services (especially Rivals). He's one of the bigger athletic freaks in the country, just not sure what position (or really even what sport) he ends up playing. Also heard he's a bit of a diva. 

Him trending to Kentucky right now is absolutely true. And you gotta ask yourself, how often does that happen for an Ohio State priority – let alone an in-state one? There's a reason guys like Ajian, Clark, Bowden, and Richardson end up at Kentucky while the Jackson Carmans and Jaelen Gills do not.

He's one of the best players in the country but I know some of his behaviors are a concern. I have no idea how they would handle it if he tried to flip tomorrow (not that that's going to happen), but the fact that he keeps coming to campus would seem to show that both parties are at least interested. 

Maybe they are wanting to monitor him a bit during his senior season and go from there? Defensive end is a big need and he's a great player, so that's why I have him fairly high even though there are a lot of question marks. 

At this point I don't think he ends up at Ohio State, but I'm not convinced he ends up at Penn State either.

i had a hard time placing him, honestly.
