Five-Star Class of 2017 Wide Receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones to Visit Ohio State This Weekend

Donovan Peoples-Jones will visit Ohio State this weekend.

A five-star prospect is set to be on Ohio State's campus this weekend due to Mother Nature.

Donovan Peoples-Jones, the nation's top wide receiver prospect in the class of 2017, is set to take an official visit Columbus after Hurricane Matthew diverted his imminent trip to the University of Florida. Peoples-Jones made the announcement Thursday on his Twitter account.

A five-star prospect from Cass Technical High School in Detroit—the same place that produced current Buckeyes Mike Weber, Damon Webb and Joshua Alabi—Peoples-Jones has more than 20 offers and is considered a Michigan lean.

But it is still a big deal he is planning to take his second official visit to Ohio State and presents a big opportunity for Urban Meyer and wide receivers coach Zach Smith.

As our Andrew Lind mentioned Wednesday night, four-star wide out Jaylen Harris from Cleveland Heights will also be on campus this weekend. He will be there with his teammate, four-star defensive end Tyreke Smith. Andrew will have more in tonight's Hurry Up on Peoples-Jones' change of weekend plans.
