How Could 2015 Shape Up for Ohio State? Predicting the Impossible (11W)


Good afternoon folks, welcome to your Tuesday afternoon dose of 'crootin. We've reached March, and with it comes spring football at Ohio State and the impending football camp season. Ahh...glorious.

If you recall, last winter we did a series of stories about who could end up in Ohio State's 2015 recruiting class. Those were initial prognostications, a far away look at a mystical place called "Guessing Land." Four months later, let's take another look but this time with a bit more knowledge to draw from. 

This is Buckeye football recruiting, change is inevitable and almost constant, but we'll do our best. Let's get to it.


Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 3/5 - Marcus Lewis names Ohio State his favorite (LGHL)


2015 cornerback Marcus Lewis named the Buckeyes as his leader yesterday and which target will be the next to pull the trigger for Ohio State?

Kicking things off today, 2015 defensive back Marcus Lewis, who visited Columbus last weekend, came out and said that Ohio State is his new, early leader. For a cornerback, Lewis has elite size at 6'1, 187 pounds, but the trait that sticks out the most is his 4.38 40-yard dash time. From Washington, DC, the star athlete also holds offers from Clemson, Virginia Tech, Michigan, and Penn State. Though it's great news that the Buckeyes are at the top of his list at the moment, there's still a ton of time for the recruiting race to take shape. However, it does say a lot that Lewis took the time to unofficially visit Ohio State this early in his process and there's no doubt that Urban Meyer has more than a legitimate shot to land this big-time talent. When looking at the game of football, the "in" thing seems to be having huge defensive backs that can shut down the run, but also can bully receivers in the passing game. There's no doubt that Lewis looks like he fits that bill. You can view his film here.


Ohio State recruiting: Walk-on Isaiah Williams "excited for road ahead" (LGHL)


Get to know future Ohio State walk-on safety Isaiah Williams of Clayton Northmont a little better.

By now, most of you are well aware that Damon Webb, Dante Booker, Jamarco Jones, Malik Hooker, Sam Hubbard and rest of the star studded 2014 recruiting class signed their National Letters of Intent with the Buckeyes last month, inching them even closer to living out their long time dreams of playing major college football on Saturday afternoons.

Between all the breaking news, Ohio State picked up a recruit you might have missed on February 5th. D1 First Team All-Ohio selection, Isaiah Williams of Clayton Northmont, will join those aforementioned prospects and suit up for his childhood favorite as a preferred walk-on this fall.

"The chance (to walk-on) came a while back before my season started." Williams told Land-Grant Holy Land. "Coach Hinton was my recruiting coach and he told me that a preferred walk-on spot was probably going to be the best they could offer me." The 6'3 190 pound future Buckeye safety added.
