Ohio State has made five new offers to prospects in the 2025 and 2026 classes in recent days.

We’ll go over each new offer below, plus touch on a few other news items of note. 

Jonas Williams

Ryan Day has offered two new quarterbacks in the 2026 cycle. The first of which was Illinois prospect Jonas Williams, who took a visit to Columbus over the weekend. Williams spent plenty of time with new offensive coordinator Chip Kelly and watched OSU’s practice on Saturday, and earned the offer from Day. 

Williams visited Ohio State in the fall as well for a gameday trip during the Michigan State game in November. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound signal caller doesn’t hold a 247Sports composite ranking as of yet but has picked up 16 Division I offers, including Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, Kent State, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, Pittsburgh, Purdue and Tennessee. 

In Williams' sophomore season, he recorded 2,950 total yards and 31 touchdowns.

Noah Grubbs

Grubbs earned his Ohio State offer on Monday after a conversation with Day and Kelly, making him the sixth quarterback the Buckeyes have offered in the 2026 class. The Florida prospect visited Columbus on Monday and will be at the Buckeyes’ spring practice on Tuesday.

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound signal caller has nearly 25 Division I offers, including Arkansas, Auburn, Colorado, Duke, Florida, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Texas A&M, UCF, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. 

In Grubbs’ sophomore season, he completed 208 of 354 passes for 3,670 yards with 49 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also ran for four touchdowns. 

Ksani Jiles

Jiles is a talented cornerback in the 2026 class that was offered by Tim Walton following his visit to Ohio State over the weekend. 

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Jiles decommitted from Miami in February and has since explored other options in his recruitment. He’s earned more than 20 Division I offers, including Miami, Arizona, Colorado, FIU, Florida, Kansas, LSU, Michigan State, Missouri, Nevada, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, Texas A&M, USC, Utah, Washington and Washington State. 

Jiles attends football powerhouse IMG Academy (Bradenton, Florida) but is originally from California. 

Kole Briehler

Briehler is the lone prospect in the 2025 class that was offered over the weekend. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound defensive lineman is considered a three-star recruit per 247Sports’ composite rankings and is ranked the 504th-best player and the 51st-rated defensive lineman in the 2025 class.

The New Jersey product has earned more than 25 Division I offers, including Miami, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Cincinnati, Duke, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Liberty, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse, USC, Vanderbilt, West Virginia and Wisconsin. 

Carson Sneed

Sneed is one of the top tight end prospects in the 2026 class and was offered by OSU tight ends coach Keenan Bailey following his visit to Columbus over the weekend.

The 6-foot-5, 226-pound Tennessee prospect is considered the 57th-best player and the No. 3 tight end in the 2026 cycle. Sneed has picked up nearly 30 Division I offers, including Tennessee, Auburn, Indiana, Missouri, Purdue, Alabama, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Texas A&M and Wisconsin. 

Javeon Campbell locks in official visit for May 31

An Ohio State defensive end target has locked in an official visit. A few weeks after he was offered by defensive line coach Larry Johnson, three-star Kentucky prospect Javeon Campbell confirmed he’ll take an official visit to OSU on May 31.

Campbell racked up 14.5 sacks in just seven games for Western Hills High School (Frankfort, Kentucky) last year in just his second season of playing the sport.

Jared Curtis commits to Georgia

At one point in January, Ohio State looked to be the perceived frontrunner for five-star 2026 quarterback Jared Curtis, the No. 1 ranked signal caller in his cycle. Ohio State then made two separate offensive coordinator hires between Bill O’Brien and Chip Kelly, and the traction with Curtis never got fully back on track.  

Curtis committed to Georgia on Saturday, ending his recruitment for now. Of course, there’s a long way to go between now and National Signing Day for the 2026 class, so it’s always possible this recruitment could have more twists and turns before all is said and done.
