Ohio State’s visitor list for this weekend keeps growing.

On Tuesday, two more priority visitors were confirmed to attend Saturday’s rivalry game against Michigan.

With the decommitment of Mark Fletcher, Ohio State will embark on a mad scramble to fill the open spot left by the Florida prospect over the next few weeks. The Buckeyes have already offered three-star 2023 Georgia prospect Jamarion Wilcox, and another offer could be on the way as soon as this weekend, as three-star Ohio running back Trey Cornist confirmed he’ll be in attendance at the Horseshoe.

Cornist had a standout senior season for Winton Woods this fall, rushing for 1,629 yards on 181 carries with 27 touchdowns. The high school teammate of cornerback commit Jermaine Mathews, Cornist has picked up several notable Power Five offers recently, including Kentucky, Michigan State, Kansas State and Purdue. Cornist, who has visited Ohio State multiple times this season, will hope to add an OSU offer to his list by Sunday. 

Per 247Sports, high-priority target Mylan Graham will also be in Columbus on Saturday, marking the third time he’s been on campus this fall. Graham, a borderline five-star prospect who earned his first-ever offer from Ohio State this summer, had a dominating junior season for New Haven High School (New Haven, Indiana). In 10 games, Graham caught 48 passes for 1,149 yards and 13 touchdowns. 

Denmark includes OSU in top 3

Four-star Philadelphia wideout Tyseer Denmark is two days away from making his college commitment. Monday, the 2024 prospect narrowed his suitor list down to three teams, Ohio State, Penn State and Oregon. Denmark will commit on Thanksgiving, honoring his mother’s birthday.

While most of the momentum had been with Ohio State in the weeks leading up to his recruitment, 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong placed a Crystal Ball projection in favor of Oregon on Tuesday. Should Denmark commit to either Oregon or Penn State, OSU still has plenty of talented targets remaining at the position in the 2024 class. Plus, if there’s one area where the Buckeyes have earned every benefit of the doubt over the past few seasons, it’s wide receiver recruiting. Other top priorities in the 2024 class include Jeremiah Smith, Graham, Joshisa Trader, Jeremiah McClellan and Micah Hudson, among others. 

Earlier this summer, Denmark told Eleven Warriors he planned to be in attendance for OSU’s contest against Michigan, but that seems unlikely if he is headed elsewhere. We’ll find out Thursday for sure. 

Reaction from Garrett Stover commitment

In case you missed it late Monday night, Ohio State has a new member of its 2024 recruiting class in four-star Ohio safety Garrett Stover, who became the third commit of the cycle. 

Stover’s commitment was relatively lowkey, which shouldn’t have surprised many, and came during one of the biggest weeks of Ohio State’s season. The Big Walnut standout had visited OSU five times this season, and while he visited Notre Dame once, there was never any question about where he felt he belonged in college. 

“I grew up watching the Buckeyes. It was my dream to play there and be a Buckeye,” Stover told Eleven Warriors of his decision process on Tuesday. “As the recruiting process was dying down and college teams were in season, I just thought I was ready. I knew what I wanted, and Ohio State had everything that I wanted. The most important thing was I wanted to be close to home too. I love Ohio State, everything about it, and I knew I was ready now, so let’s do it and get the thing done. I’m really excited.” 

Following Stover’s commitment, a bunch of OSU’s football staff and fellow commitments reacted in a big way, taking to social media to celebrate the third commitment of the 2024 class. A compilation of those tweets is below.
