You couldn’t have asked for a more productive recruiting weekend for Ohio State.

The Buckeyes landed four commitments and also made good impressions on various other prospects from the 2025 and 2026 recruiting classes during the Buckeyes’ Student Appreciation Day practice.

One of those aforementioned recruits was four-star defensive tackle Trent Wilson, who included Ohio State in his top four on Monday along with Penn State, Oklahoma and Texas A&M. He’ll take his official visit to Columbus on May 31 and will also visit his other three top schools.

“They have Larry Johnson,” Wilson told On3 of Ohio State. “Not only is he there, but they have two more defensive line coaches with great experience. All of them develop players, and that is what stands out more about Ohio State.”

Wilson, a top-150 prospect in the 2025 class, will likely commit sometime in July.

Cody Haddad decommits from Wisconsin 

Ohio State picked up its first safety commitment in the current cycle after four-star New Jersey prospect DeShawn Stewart pulled the trigger on Sunday. Another Ohio State safety target of interest made an eyebrow-raising move on Monday, as in-state prospect Cody Haddad decommitted from Wisconsin after he visited Columbus over the weekend. 

A few days after Haddad committed to the Badgers in January, the Buckeyes offered the St. Ignatius product and he’s visited Ohio State multiple times since then. The Buckeyes could become a big factor in his recruitment if they decide to push for him, and he’ll be a top target along with Faheem Delane and Trey McNutt. A new decision may not be imminent, as Haddad will likely take other visits before deciding on where his next home will be.

While the weekend delivered big results on the recruiting trail, the Buckeyes also offered four new prospects on Monday. We’ll go over each new offer below. 

Andrew Harris and Aiden Harris

Ohio State knows all too well what it's like to recruit twin brothers after landing both Deontae and Devontae Armstrong in the 2024 class. Well, the Buckeyes are back at it recruiting twins, only instead of offensive linemen, they’re recruiting a pair of defensive linemen from North Carolina in Andrew and Aiden Harris

Both prospects visited Columbus on Monday and are from the 2026 cycle. Andrew Harris measures in at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, while Aiden Harris is 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds. 

Andrew has earned 20 Division I offers, including Boston College, UConn, Georgia Tech, Indiana, James Madison, Louisville, Memphis, Miami, North Carolina State, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and West Virginia. 

Aiden has racked up 17 offers, which include North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Auburn, Boston College, UConn, Georgia Tech, Indiana, NC State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

Last season for Weddington High School (Matthews, North Carolina), Andrew Harris recorded 104 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks, 30 quarterback hurries, seven pass deflections and a fumble recovery. Aiden racked up 93 tackles, 21 for loss, 23 quarterback hurries, eight pass deflections and two forced fumbles.

Thomas Davis Jr.

The Harris twins weren’t the only defensive standouts from Weddington High School to earn an offer from Ohio State. Four-star linebacker Thomas Davis Jr. also picked up an offer from defensive line coach Larry Johnson on Monday after taking a visit to Columbus. 

Per 247Sports’ composite rankings, Davis is considered the 59th-rated player and the third-best linebacker in the 2026 class.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound prospect has earned 25 Division I offers, including Auburn, Boston College, Charlotte, Georgia Tech, Indiana, James Madison, LSU, Memphis, Miami, NC State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and West Virginia. 

As a sophomore, Davis recorded 92 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, one sack, seven quarterback hurries, an interception, eight pass deflections and a forced fumble. 

Mikkel Skinner

Ohio State has offered another wide receiver in the 2025 class after Brian Hartline offered South Carolina prospect Mikkel Skinner on Monday. 

Skinner doesn’t hold a composite ranking but has earned 12 Division I offers, including Appalachian State, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Coastal Carolina, Liberty and West Virginia. 

Skinner was a multi-purpose player for Riverside High School (Greer, South Carolina) last season after catching 44 passes for 651 receiving yards and rushing for 588 yards on 68 carries. He recorded 15 total touchdowns. 

Javeon Campbell puts Buckeyes in top nine

An Ohio State target has narrowed down his recruitment. Three-star defensive lineman Javeon Campbell released a top nine list on Monday consisting of Ohio State, Notre Dame, LSU, Kentucky, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Auburn and Miami. 

Campbell was offered by Ohio State this spring and is expected to take an official visit to Columbus this summer.

Michael Fasusi leaves Ohio State out of top seven 

A premier offensive tackle in the 2025 class with an Ohio State offer is no longer considering the Buckeyes. Michael Fasusi, the No. 2 ranked offensive tackle in the 2025 cycle, put out a top seven Monday consisting of USC, Oregon, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Mizzou, Georgia and Texas.

Ohio State has one offensive tackle committed in the 2025 class in Carter Lowe, and remains in strong contention for five-star offensive tackle David Sanders Jr., who visited Ohio State last weekend.
