One of Ohio State’s priority wide receiver targets in the 2025 class has reopened his recruitment.

Five-star 2025 Texas wideout Dakorien Moore decommitted from LSU on Thursday, but specified he will not be reopening his recruitment, meaning he’ll focus only on his other finalists: Ohio State, Oregon and Texas. He had been committed to the Tigers since August of 2023. 

Moore visited OSU twice in the spring, once for a spring practice and then once with his mother after spring football concluded. It’s expected that More will take an official visit to all three of his finalists this summer, starting with OSU on May 31. All three have at least a puncher’s chance in the recruitment and it’s foolish to ever count out Brian Hartline and Ryan Day from landing a premier wideout. And Ohio State five-star cornerback Devin Sanchez has been in Moore’s ear about the pair of Texas standouts potentially teaming up in Columbus and those recruiting pitches are only going to get louder. 

But the speculation in the recruiting industry is Texas has the slight inside track for Moore as of now. 

Moore, rated the No. 1 wideout in the 2025 class per 247Sports’ composite rankings, delivered a prolific junior season after he recorded 71 catches for 1,523 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Ziyare Addison offered by OSU

Ohio State offensive line coach Justin Frye keeps expanding his offensive line recruiting board for the 2025 class. On Thursday, Frye offered four-star 2025 Florida prospect Ziyare Addison over the phone, a few days after he visited him at his high school on Monday. 

The pair had been in communication for three months, and Addison had been expecting the offer for some time now. While OSU is later to the party recruiting him compared to some other schools, he has built relationships with offensive coordinator Chip Kelly and running backs coach Carlos Locklyn from his past visits to UCLA and Oregon. 

“They basically (told Frye) you have to come get this kid,” Addison told Eleven Warriors of his offer. “Coach Frye said he loved my length and my athleticism. He also loved that I’m a multi-sport athlete because I wrestle and also run track.” 

Addison is considered the 211th-best prospect and the 22nd-rated offensive tackle in the 2025 class. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Addison has more than 40 Division I offers, but has official visits scheduled to Georgia, Florida, Oregon, Penn State and Florida State. 

The Florida prospect says he’ll likely take an unofficial visit to OSU sometime this summer, though an exact date hasn’t been worked out as of yet. If that visit goes well, it’s possible he could return for an official visit. 

“They’re one of the best programs in the country,” Addison said of OSU.

Addison was his high school’s starting left tackle last season and helped lead Sumner High (Riverview, Florida) to the playoffs while also playing defensive tackle as well.

Kaden Strayhorn schedules an official visit for May 31

Speaking of offensive linemen, another OSU target has locked in an official visit to Columbus. Three-star Florida prospect Kaden Strayhorn announced on Friday he’ll be on campus on May 31. Strayhorn also has visits set up to Miami and Michigan. 

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound prospect’s fit at the next level is likely as an interior offensive lineman. He was offered by OSU last June after impressing Frye at a recruiting camp. 

"It felt great to get the offer," Strayhorn told Eleven Warriors shortly after getting the offer. "Coach Day told me coach Frye said I did outstanding in the camp and that I was offered a scholarship. In camp, coach Frye told me chest over knees, knees over ankles.”
