Last week, Ohio State dished out a whopping 20 offers.

So far, 11 offers have gone out to new prospective recruits this week, including two new ones on Thursday and another that was announced late Wednesday night after yesterday’s Hurry-Up was published.

We’ll delve into all of those offers below. 

Ronan Hanafin

The most highly touted prospect Ohio State extended an offer to over the past 24 hours was four-star 2023 Massachusetts wide receiver Ronan Hanafin, who received his offer from Ryan Day and Ohio State special teams coordinator Parker Fleming on Wednesday.

Hanafin is considered the 333rd-best prospect and the 43rd-best wideout in the 2023 cycle, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. He currently has 15 Division I offers, also including Boston College, Duke, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Penn State, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin. 

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound wideout helped lead Buckingham Browne & Nichols School, where he plays both wide receiver and strong safety, to a 7-2 record last season.

Kelton Henderson

Kelton Henderson, a 2024 Florida recruit that plays multiple positions, received an offer from Ohio State on Thursday. 

The 6-foot, 180-pound prospect, who does not yet have a 247Sports ranking, plays both running back and wide receiver on offense and cornerback and free safety on defense. Henderson currently has six Division I offers, also including Florida State, Miami, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Wisconsin. 

Henderson played his sophomore season at Island Coast High School (Cape Coral, Florida) before transferring to Lehigh Senior High School (Lehigh Acres, Florida). In the 2021 season, Henderson had 17 carries for 108 yards and two rushing touchdowns and caught 10 passes for 222 yards with four receiving touchdowns. He also returned kickoffs and punts. Defensively, he racked up 20 total tackles, a sack and an interception. 

He will be teammates with top Ohio State 2023 running back target Richard Young next season.

Bryan Jackson

The Buckeyes also extended a scholarship opportunity to a 2024 running back Thursday, as Texas prospect Bryan Jackson picked up an Ohio State offer. 

The 5-foot-11, 215-pound Jackson does not yet hold a 247Sports rating. He currently has 18 Division I offers, including Arkansas, Baylor, Georgia, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, TCU, Texas, Texas Tech, Utah and USC. 

Bisontis releases top 15

A top-15 list when your decision is mere months away might only raise more questions than it presents answers, but nevertheless, 2023 four-star offensive tackle Chase Bisontis released such a list on Thursday evening. 

Ohio State made the cut on Bisontis’ updated school list, which also includes Michigan State, Rutgers, Notre Dame, LSU, Miami, West Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama, Texas A&M, Clemson, Michigan, Boston College, Penn State and Texas.  

Bisontis recently told Eleven Warriors the main schools he’s currently considering at the moment are Ohio State, Michigan State, Rutgers and Notre Dame. Offensive line coach Justin Frye has visited Bisontis twice in person already, once with Ryan Day on Monday, so it's clear the New Jersey product is a priority target for Ohio State’s 2023 class.  

“It went really well,” Bisontis told Eleven Warriors of the latest visit. “They really make me feel like a top priority for them. It’s real love.” 

Bisontis, ranked as the 53rd-best prospect and the fourth-best offensive tackle in 2023, plans to visit Columbus in the spring.
