Ohio State's top remaining target in the 2024 class will be taking an official visit to campus after all.
Five-star offensive tackle Jordan Seaton confirmed on his Twitter page he'll be taking an official visit to OSU this weekend, a big development for the Buckeyes after Ohio State previously tried to get him on campus for a game-weekend visit last month. Seaton said his visit this weekend will be the last one he takes in his recruitment.
This will be Seaton's first visit to campus since November 2022 and will be a big opportunity for OSU offensive line coach Justin Frye to sell Seaton on the Buckeyes' developmental capability.
As you'd expect for the No. 1 rated offensive tackle in 247Sports' composite rankings, there's no shortage of suitors Ohio State is battling for Seaton. The 6-foot-5, 287-pound tackle released a top-seven schools list last month consisting of Alabama, Colorado, Ohio State, Tennessee, Oregon, Florida and Maryland.
“I gotta get back to Ohio State and see where my head’s at,” Seaton told 247Sports this week. “Ohio State is always in the mix.”
If OSU can land Seaton, it would be the biggest recruiting victory in Frye's short tenure as the Buckeyes' offensive line coach. He'd be the fifth offensive line commit in the 2024 class, joining Gabe VanSickle, Deontae and Devontae Armstrong and Ian Moore.
