The Monday after a vacation always seems to hit a little harder, doesn’t it?

In any case, following a week off by yours truly, we’ve got some stuff to catch up on (spoiler alert, a lot of top schools lists), as Ohio State prepares to host its first official visitors of the summer starting on Friday. But first, in case you missed it, Ohio State dished out double-digit offers in the last week, which Dan was kind enough to recap over the weekend

Mariyon Dye lists Buckeyes in top eight

One of Ohio State’s priority defensive end targets in the 2025 class has narrowed his recruitment down to eight teams. Four-star Indiana pass rusher Mariyon Dye released a final eight school list last week consisting of Ohio State, Georgia, Tennessee, Penn State, Florida State, Michigan, Purdue and LSU. 

Per 247Sports’ composite rankings, Dye is considered the 173rd-best prospect and the 16th-rated edge rusher in the 2025 class. Of his eight finalists, he currently has official visits set to OSU (June 14), Purdue (Friday), Georgia (June 7), Florida State (June 18) and Tennessee (June 21). 

OSU already has London Merritt and Zahir Mathis committed for its 2025 class, but it would love to add another true defensive end prospect like Dye to the fold if possible. 

Ziyare Addison puts Ohio State in his top nine

Ohio State was a late entrant to four-star 2025 offensive tackle Ziyare Addison’s recruitment, but the Buckeyes have made a fast impression on the Florida prospect. Addison included the Buckeyes in his top nine schools last week, which consisted of OSU, Oregon, Georgia, Penn State, Michigan, Florida State, Florida, UCLA and Stanford. 

Addison picked up his offer from OSU on May 16 from Justin Frye as the offensive line coach stopped by his school to speak with the 6-foot-5, 290-pound prospect. While Frye and Addison had only been in contact for about four months, he has built relationships with offensive coordinator Chip Kelly and running backs coach Carlos Locklyn from 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.”

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.

Myron Charles includes OSU in top six

An elite interior defensive line prospect also included the Buckeyes in a top schools list recently, as four-star Florida defensive tackle Myron Charles put OSU in a top six on Sunday along with Florida, Texas, Miami, Florida State and Georgia.

Getting Charles to go out of state may prove difficult, as the 6-foot-4, 295-pound product has only set official visits to the three in-state schools so far: Miami, Florida State and Florida. If OSU can get Charles on campus this summer, it would go a long way toward the Buckeyes’ chances of landing the standout defensive tackle.

An early look ahead to Ohio State’s first official visit weekend

We mentioned earlier that this weekend will be the first of four official visit weekends for the Buckeyes’ recruiting staff this summer. We’ll compile a full preview later in the week that breaks down where OSU stands with each 2025 prospect entering the visit, but for now, here are the recruits expected to be in Columbus this weekend.
