Over the last 24 hours since yesterday’s Hurry-Up published, Ohio State has offered three more prospects.

Two of those offers went to highly-touted prospects in the class of 2023, while a 2024 running back also landed an offer on Thursday.

Monroe Freeling

It’s not a secret the Buckeyes’ biggest need in the 2023 class is offensive tackle. So it shouldn’t be surprising to see Ohio State continue to offer premier offensive tackles in the current cycle. Four-star South Carolina tackle Monroe Freeling became the latest OT to receive an Ohio State offer on Thursday.

The 6-foot-7, 283-pound Freeling is ranked as the 93rd-best prospect and the ninth-best tackle in the 2023 class. He’s racked up 24 Division I offers to this point, including Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Stanford, Tennessee, South Carolina, Penn State, Oregon, Michigan, Miami, LSU, Kentucky, Georgia, Florida State, Clemson, Auburn and Arkansas. He helped lead Oceanside Collegiate Academy (Mount Pleasant, South Carolina) to an 8-4 record last season. 

Ohio State has one tackle committed to its 2023 class in Luke Montgomery, though it’s possible he could also play guard or center at the collegiate level. Other top tackle targets for the Buckeyes include Chase Bisontis, Samson Okunlola, Payton Kirkland and Olaus Alinen.

Daniel Harris

Ohio State has identified another cornerback target for the class of 2023. Florida cornerback Daniel Harris (not to be confused with five-star cornerback AJ Harris’ father) picked up an offer from the Buckeyes on Wednesday. The 6-foot-2, 160-pound defensive back announced that he received the offer from Ohio State secondary coaches Perry Eliano and Tim Walton.

Harris is ranked as the 337th-best prospect and the 33rd-best cornerback in the 2023 class. He has picked up 20 Division I offers to this point including Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Miami, Michigan, Texas A&M and West Virginia. In 10 games for Gulliver Prep (Miami, Florida) in 2021, Harris racked up 37 tackles (2 for loss), two pass deflections and one interception. 

“I like Ohio State a lot,” Harris told 247Sports. “They’re home of DBU. I don’t have the date set, but I will visit them.”

Ohio State will likely take two to three cornerbacks in the 2023 class. AJ Harris remains a top target while other targets include Cormani McClain, Kayin Lee, Malik Muhammad, Christian Gray, Sharif Denson and Ethan Nation

Anthony Carrie

Florida running back Anthony Carrie became the latest running back in the 2024 class to receive an offer from Ohio State on Thursday.

Carrie has already picked up 27 Division I offers, including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, LSU, Michigan State, Oregon, Penn State, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and USC. He does not yet hold a 247Sports rating. In nine games as a sophomore for Carollwood Day (Tampa, Florida), Carrie ran for 1,032 yards on 157 carries (6.6 yards per carry) while racking up 20 rushing touchdowns. He also caught 13 passes for 109 yards. 

The 6-foot, 180-pound running back is the third tailback Ohio State has offered in the 2024 class, joining Stacy Gage and Bryan Jackson.
