Ohio State's recruitment drive has ventured into the class of 2018, and nothing can be ruled out because many of the country's top prospects are already tempted to join.
The Buckeyes, headed by Urban Meyer, do not mess around as far as recruitment goes. They have a national reputation as an elite program with regards to football and more. Although most media coverage has focused on the class of 2017, recently 2018 has witnessed a boost in exposure, because the Buckeyes have made offers to lots of promising new talent from the class of 2018. Suffice to say, Meyer has recruited across the country in the short time he's been with Ohio State, and 2018 will follow suit as numerous four star and five star prospects will choose to sign with the Buckeyes.
Darrell Simpson Gets Offer From Ohio State
The Buckeye's offensive line, also known as the 'Slobs', are renown for their effectiveness thanks to their success in the first round of the NFL Draft. Although this group continues to be successful, the coaching team has been out and about searching for new blood to maintain that success going forwards. Yesterday, Darrell Simpson (Justin, TX / Northwest) posted on his Twitter account that he had just been offered a place with the Slobs.
Weighing 330 pounds and standing six foot seven inches tall, Simpson's physical size alone is sufficient to impress. It is not hard to understand why the Buckeyes tried to bag this offensive tackle from the 2018 class. 247Sports lists Simpson as a composite four star prospect, and he has received eleven other offers as well. Some of the other schools that have attempted to sign Simpson are Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and TCU -- to name but a few.
