The Hurry Up is your nightly dose of updates from the Ohio State football recruiting trail, keeping tabs on the latest from commits and targets from around the country.


As Saguaro (Az.) cornerback Kelee Ringo prepares for this weekend's visit to Ohio Stadium, he's looking to learn about many different traits of Ohio State's football program. But there's one thing he's already taught himself ... the Buckeyes are at the top of his ever-growing list.

Ringo, a five-star 2020 prospect ranked as the nation's second-best corner, announced he'd be present in Columbus this past Tuesday. Upon his arrival, Ohio State will need to make him feel at home and quickly.

"One thing that I’m looking for when I go on my visit is being able to imagine myself living there for four years," Ringo told Eleven Warriors. "I already have a good relationship with all the coaches so I think this weekend will be great."

Ringo said he keeps in constant contact Ohio State co-defensive coordinator Alex Grinch, who's obviously making an impact on a young man that's visited USC, Alabama, Arizona State, etc. He currently has offers from 30-plus major Division I programs.

"I am at a high point of my recruiting process," Ringo said. "I’m starting to think about when I want to start narrowing things down. I like all of these schools but I think I know Ohio State has a high ranking in my top schools, early on."

With Ringo on its roster, Saguaro is currently 7-1 – one of those seven wins came against Chaparral, who has two Ohio State commits on its roster in quarterback Jack Miller and running back Darvon Hubbard. If Saguaro is to win a state championship, a feat that Ringo says is absolutely the goal, it would be the program's sixth consecutive state title.

"I feel, as the playoffs are coming up, we're only are getting better and the main goal is to win state for the sixth time in a row," Ringo said. "The skills I bring to the field is my physicality and being able to cover the other team's best receiver. I just have the mentality of wanting to be the best out on the field and that energy spreads to my team."


Come Nov. 1, we'll know where four-star 2019 Western Hills (Ky.) all-purpose back Wandale Robinson will be attending college; he announced his commitment date earlier this week. But no matter where he lands, come Jan. 5, 2019, we know for sure he'll be in San Antonio, Texas.

Robinson, who made a visit to Columbus last Saturday, tweeted Thursday evening that he'd be participating in the Adidas All-American Bowl, an event that describes itself as annually featuring the nation's best 100 prep players.

The contest, which will be televised nationally on NBC, has yielded 380 NFL Draft picks and 134 Pro Bowl selections in its history. 


Late Thursday evening, 2020 Ohio State safety commit Lejond Cavazos tweeted that his junior year at IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) has come to an end. Cavazos suffered a hip injury on Sept. 29 in a 34-7 win over Northwestern.
