Ohio State’s second official visit weekend of June – its biggest one so far this month – wrapped up on Sunday.

Thirteen prospects from the recruiting class of 2023 – six of whom are already committed to Ohio State and seven who are candidates to eventually join them – made their official visits to Ohio State this weekend as the Buckeyes made their pitch for why each of them should spend their next three to five years in Columbus.

The headliner of the weekend was five-star wide receiver Brandon Inniss, one of the top players on the Buckeyes’ board in the current recruiting cycle. Inniss took to Instagram on Sunday to share photos from his time at Ohio State.

Other uncommitted targets on campus this weekend included a trio of four-star defensive backs: in-state cornerback Jermaine Mathews, Massachusetts safety Joenel Aguero and New Jersey safety Jayden Bonsu. Mathews described his visit to Ohio State as “very great,” while Aguero shared a photo from inside Ohio Stadium with a caption of “Don't get better than this.”

Other targets on campus this weekend included Texas Tech cornerback commit Calvin Simpson-Hunt, uncommitted quarterback Brock Glenn and uncommitted offensive tackle Oluwatosin Babalade.

Of note: Four-star wide receiver Noah Rogers was also supposed to make an official visit to Ohio State this weekend, but he ended up making an unofficial visit to N.C. State after travel issues prevented him from making the trip to Columbus. Rogers is now expected to be in Columbus next weekend, when the Buckeyes will have another loaded official visit weekend headlined by top offensive tackle target Olaus Alinen and top safety target Caleb Downs, among others.

More than half of the players who are already committed to Ohio State’s 2023 class were also on campus this weekend, as the Florida trio of cornerback Dijon Johnson, wide receiver Bryson Rodgers and running back Mark Fletcher made their official visits alongside offensive linemen Joshua Padilla and Austin Siereveld and tight end Ty Lockwood. Offensive line commit Luke Montgomery, who will make his official visit next weekend, was also on campus Saturday for an unofficial visit.

A look at what they shared on social media during and after their visits:
