Ohio State will have another official visitor this weekend for its rivalry matchup with Michigan.

Four-star South Dakota quarterback Lincoln Kienholz will be among the many recruits in attendance for OSU’s rivalry matchup with Michigan, which may be the main reason the Buckeyes and 2023 four-star quarterback Brock Glenn split as the Tennessee signal caller flipped to Florida State Monday evening.

While Kienholz visiting is a huge indicator of his interest in OSU, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound signal-caller is currently committed to Washington, so the Buckeyes will have to flip him if they want to add him to their 2023 class. The interest in Kienholz isn’t a new development, as OSU quarterbacks coach Corey Dennis visited South Dakota to scout him in person earlier this fall during Ohio State’s off week. Should Glenn decommit, Kienholz would be the clear-cut No. 1 target to replace him.   

This season, Kienholz helped lead Pierre High School (Pierre, South Dakota) to a state championship, completing 66.5 percent of his passes for 3,422 yards and 46 touchdowns to six interceptions. As a runner, Kienholz ran for 1,435 yards with 24 rushing touchdowns. 

Seaton visiting Columbus Saturday

Kienholz won’t be the only important visitor for Ohio State Saturday. Four-star 2024 Washington D.C. offensive lineman Jordan Seaton has confirmed his visit plans to Columbus this weekend, per On3. Seaton is in daily contact with the Buckeyes. 

“Ohio State, they’re a frontrunner right now,” Seaton told On3. “I wouldn’t be surprised if they end up in my top schools.

“For a school like them to be, first of all, where they’re at in the season right now and still keep in contact with me daily, it shows that they have time for a guy outside their state. I’m all in the way in D.C, and for them to make time like that means a lot, so I make time to see them.”

Seaton visited Ohio State in April for the program's spring game, then picked up his offer from the Buckeyes in September. He’s considered the 42nd-best prospect and the top-rated interior offensive lineman in 2024, per 247Sports’ composite rankings. Seaton has 29 Division I offers, including Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, LSU, USC, Michigan, Michigan State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Oregon and Penn State.

Gregory enjoys OSU visit

When Ohio State last hosted a home game, it featured a pretty prominent wide receiver in the 2026 class in Chris Henry Jr. Still, it also hosted another wideout bound to be highly rated in that cycle in Georgia wideout Aaron Gregory

The 6-foot-1, 159-pound Gregory has picked up nine Division I offers this fall, including Arkansas, Kentucky, Penn State, Boston College, Mississippi State, Maryland and South Carolina.

Gregory told Eleven Warriors he relished his time in Columbus. 

“The game atmosphere from (my visit) was great,” Gregory said. “Nothing like The Ohio State. I had a great visit. I made some great connections with the wide receiver coach Brian Hartline and the safety coach Perry Eliano. They liked my size and potential. Future visits are definitely in the works. Great hospitality, enjoyed being able to watch practice and learn from a great group of players and coaches.”

In 10 games for Augusta Chrisitan School (Augusta, Georgia), Gregory caught 32 passes for 271 yards with three touchdowns.
