Between Sunday and Monday, Ohio State hosted a number of talented West Coast prospects from various classes on spring visits.

Some of the premier visitors included Kyngstonn Viliamu-Asa, T.A. Cunningham, Shaun Scott, Jason Mitchell, Bekkem Kritza, Brandon Baker, Aydin Breland, Dylan Williams and more. 

Some of the prospects mentioned above already have Ohio State offers, and others haven’t been offered as of now. But we’ll delve into three 2025 prospects that made the trek to Columbus and walked away with offers below.  

Jadyn Hudson 

The most highly-touted prospect of the group, Ohio State offered one of the premier safeties in the 2025 cycle in Jadyn Hudson. 

Per 247Sports’ composite rankings, Hudson is considered the 15th-ranked player and the third-rated safety in the 2025 cycle. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound prospect has 26 Division I offers, including Georgia, Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon, LSU, Maryland, Miami, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and USC. 

Last season for Pittsburg High School (Pittsburg, California), Hudson made 71 tackles (5 for loss) while deflecting three passes and forcing a fumble. 

Phillip Bell III

The lone offensive prospect offered Monday is a five-star wideout that has impressed Brian Hartline and Ryan Day enough for the Buckeyes to pull the trigger. 

Phillip Bell III is considered the 20th-ranked player and fifth-best wideout in 2025. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound prospect has picked up more than 30 Division I offers, including Arizona, Arizona State, Auburn, Boston College, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UNLV and USC. 

In his sophomore year for Bishop Alemany (Misson Hills, California), Bell caught 73 passes for 1,335 yards. 

Jett White

White became the seventh cornerback OSU has offered in the 2025 class Monday after getting the offer from cornerbacks coach Tim Walton personally. White was a former USC commit until he decommitted from the Trojans in January.

A four-star prospect, the 6-foot-2, 160-pound White is the 64th-ranked player in the 2025 class and the fifth-rated cornerback. He’s picked up more than 40 Division I offers, including USC, Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida State, Georgia, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Memphis, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State and Texas A&M. 

Last season, White made 33 tackles and two interceptions.

Faheem Delane puts Buckeyes in top 11

An Ohio State safety target has narrowed down his recruitment. Maryland 2025 safety Faheem Delane released his top 11 schools over the weekend, with Ohio State, Penn State, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, USC, Florida, Alabama, Florida State, Maryland, Oregon and LSU all making the cut. 

Delane has visited Columbus multiple times over the past year and is a high school teammate to several fellow Ohio State targets in the class of 2024, including Elijah Moore and Aaron Chiles.

Lockhart visiting Ohio State on April 10

One of Ohio State’s priority cornerback targets in the 2024 class has set a spring visit to Columbus. Four-star Arizona cornerback Miles Lockhart announced he’d make the trek to campus on April 10.

Lockhart, who visited Ohio State for the Michigan game last year, also has an official visit scheduled to OSU for June 16-18. In an interview with Eleven Warriors in February, Lockhart gave no reservations about who’s currently leading his recruitment. 

“(Ohio State is) the leader,” Lockhart said with a laugh. “Just keeping it 100. Every school I go to, I just try to compare like, what they have and what they can offer. They just can compete with anybody. They compete for national championships every year. They can give me the education I need. If I go on to the NFL, they'll give me the chance to develop myself. It's just a great atmosphere to be in and a great place to be. They offer you a lot of opportunities.”

Brandyn Hillman commits to Michigan

Ohio State’s 2023 recruiting class will remain at 20 signees after all. Four-star safety Brandyn Hillman, who the Buckeyes offered one day after Notre Dame granted his release from his National Letter of Intent, committed to Michigan after visiting Ann Arbor over the weekend. 

Hillman was scheduled to take an official visit to Ohio State this week, but that’s unlikely to happen now. The Buckeyes will roll with their three-safety class of Malik Hartford, Jayden Bonsu and Cedrick Hawkins into next year.
