Ohio State’s recruiting camp season will conclude with the final one-day camp of the summer on Tuesday.

It seems the Buckeyes have saved their most highly touted camper for last. 

Five-star quarterback Dylan Raiola, Ohio State’s first commitment in the 2024 class, is expected to work out with the Buckeyes on Tuesday alongside his brother, Dayton Raiola.

It will be Raiola’s first-ever workout in Columbus and the first time he’s visited Ohio State since attending the Buckeyes’ spring game on April 16. Since Raiola committed to OSU in May, he’s actively recruited various high-end targets in both the 2023 and 2024 cycles. That includes five-star wide receivers Brandon Inniss and Carnell Tate, the latter of whom just committed to Ohio State on Monday.  

While Raiola is certainly the biggest name that will be camping at Ohio State on Tuesday, that doesn’t mean he’s the only intriguing name on the list. 

Four-star 2024 tight end Kylan Fox will work out with OSU Tuesday and has already amassed a nice offer list. He's picked up nearly 30 Division I offers, including Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Auburn, Texas, Tennessee, LSU, Michigan and Michigan State.

A pair of four-star 2024 defensive linemen who are brothers will also be on offer watch. Jacob and Jerod Smith are both expected to work out with Larry Johnson on Tuesday morning. Both attend The Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, Connecticut, where they are high school teammates with 2023 Ohio State offensive tackle target Olaus Alinen.

After St. Edward offensive lineman Ben Roebuck worked out for Ohio State last Wednesday, two of his teammates on the offensive line – also brothers – will follow suit on Tuesday: Deontae and Devontae Armstrong.

Columbus offensive tackle prospect Jordan Hall will attend his third Ohio State of the summer in hopes of landing an offer, while Jake Cook will camp for a second time this summer. 

Raiola won’t be the only quarterback of intrigue Tuesday. Pickerington North 2026 quarterback Rocco Williams is a young but talented player who will work out during the afternoon camp. Williams has already picked up a Division I offer from Jackson State and turned heads at Auburn and Alabama camps earlier this month.

A list of prospects we’re expecting to see at Ohio State on Tuesday:

Aguirre includes Buckeyes in Top 6, sets commitment date

One week before he’s scheduled to take an official visit to Columbus, four-star 2023 Georgia linebacker Raul Aguirre has included Ohio State in his trimmed-down schools list. 

Aguirre announced a top six Sunday consisting of Ohio State, Georgia, Miami, Alabama, Florida and Arkansas. Furthermore, he set a commitment date for July 16. 

Aguirre visited Ohio State in early April and bonded with C.J. Hicks while on his visit. 

“I would say Ohio State is very high (on my list) and I look forward to building those relationships and getting down there some more,” Aguirre told Eleven Warriors in April. “They have really good coaches and a really good program.” 

Aguirre is one of four linebackers OSU is heavily pursuing in the current cycle along with Tackett Curtis, Troy Bowles and Arvell Reese. Both Bowles and Curtis will be in Columbus this weekend for official visits, while Reese was on campus last week.

Feagin puts OSU in top 10

One of Ohio State’s top defensive back targets in the 2024 cycle has narrowed down his school list to 10 teams. Florida four-star cornerback Tavoy Feagin announced a top 10 on Sunday consisting of Ohio State, Miami, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Clemson, LSU, Oklahoma, North Carolina and Florida State. 

Feagin picked up his OSU offer on Feb. 26 after cornerbacks coach Tim Walton presented the 6-foot, 170-pound prospect with an offer. 

“He just asked me how I’m doing and that he watched my film and liked how aggressive I am,” Feagin told Eleven Warriors of his conversation with Walton in February. “Ohio State has been a big program for ages, so to get that offer is really a blessing to know that I’m able to play at that particular level.”

Hoffler to announce commitment Tuesday

A 2023 Ohio State defensive end target has set a commitment date. Four-star Georgia prospect AJ Hoffler announced Monday he’ll make his college decision at 7 p.m. Tuesday. 

Hoffler was offered by Ohio State in late November and called the Buckeyes his “dream school.” He visited Columbus twice after receiving the offer. Since then, momentum has shifted drastically from OSU to Clemson, with some in the recruiting industry believing the Buckeyes have cooled on Hoffler as a prospect. 

The Buckeyes are not likely to be Hoffler’s selection considering he made an official visit to Clemson earlier this month and has not taken one to OSU.
