Ohio State Gets Garrett Wilson

GarrettWilson

Garrett Wilson Officially Commits to Ohio State

It's official! On April 29, five-star wide receiver, Garrett Wilson made a firm commitment to go to Ohio State rather than University of Texas Austin.

Considered the fifth-best wide receiver and overall number 29 prospect in the Class of 19, Wilson was not short on offers with more than 30.

Spent Time in Dublin Ohio

Even though he spent his formative years in Texas, having moved from Dublin, Ohio to Lake Travis in the 6th grade, Garret Wilson still remembers his Ohio roots and had good things to say about Buckeye fans. He referred to them as "best in the country" and remembers the atmosphere at Ohio State as, "awesome".

In late March, Wilson made a trip back to attend a Spring practice. He was able to visit relatives and friends who still lived in the Columbus area and then met on campus with Ohio State's coaching staff including Urban Meyer, Zach Smith, and Ryan Day. Wilson noted that Ohio State could set him up for the NFL draft but if for some reason things didn't work out they could provide opportunities and connections that would enable him to be successful even after football.

Jake Wray Set To Play For Buckeyes

JakeWray

Jake Wray seems to have made an early decision to play for OSU when his time comes. The Franklin HS star will more than likely follow through with his commitment, considering that this would help to reunite him with his brother Max who's currently enrolled at OSU. They played together while they were both on the Franklin team.

At 6-foot 5-inches and 290 lbs., Jake Wray is a large offensive lineman who expects to graduate in 2020 barring any unforeseen circumstances. That means he would be able to suit up for the 2021 season at the earliest.

Having transferred to Marietta HS in Georgia last fall after a dispute with officials, both brothers were forced to miss the final two games of the season. The dispute apparently stems from the way that the coaches handled injured players, which apparently caused some sort of an issue with his parents.

Ronnie Hickman Commits To Ohio State

RonnieHickman

Ronnie "Rocket" Hickman is set to dazzle the Buckeyes 2019 recruitment class. With Ohio State getting a commitment pledge from the 6-foot, 200 pounder on Friday, the Rocket will bring much needed offense and defense to the team. Hickman is also a member of a class totaling four members now -- joining 4-star Doug Nester, lineman. The squad will also include RB Sampson James, along with 3 star lineman Ryan Jacoby.

The class is currently rated the 21st best in the nation, as well as the 5th best in the conference, the Big Ten. The commitment, however, was not easy for Ronnie "Rocket" Hickman. In fact, he was touted by Penn State, Michigan, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame and others. As a product of DePaul Catholic, Hickman was rated an all-star athlete -- playing both defensive back and wide receiver. In his junior year, he amassed 809 yards receiving with ten touchdowns. He also had 47 tackles, two interceptions and was 2nd in yards at 945.

Alonzo Gaffney Decides To Become A Buckeye

Alonzo Gaffney

Alonzo Gaffney decided to stay close to home when he attends college, which should be welcome news for fans who hoped that the forward would play for a college in his home state.

Chris Holtmann said that he was going to lock down Ohio's state borders as soon as he took the OSU head coaching job. He made his first big accomplishment toward achieving this goal when the five-star forward agreed to commit.

Since he can play multiple positions, Alonzo Gaffney has a great deal to offer OSU. His stock started to really climb in July, and many ranked him near the 18th prospect in their charts for this recruiting class.

Ryan Jacoby: A Solid Beginning For Ohio State's Recruits Of 2019

RyanJacoby

Mentor Ohio's offensive lineman Ryan Jacoby brings his skills to Ohio State as commitment number two of the 2019 class of recruits. His statistics place him at number 356 overall player, number 39 tackle for his class, and within the top ten prospects of the state, which in turn makes him a four star selection.

The Ohio native opted for a local college over a long list of other institutions, including Michigan, Purdue, Northwestern, and more. His preference for the more local Ohio State and the Buckeyes is explained here in his comments.

What Does Ryan Jacoby Have to Offer the Buckeyes?
Jacoby and fellow new recruit, West Virginia's Doug Nester, are filling Ohio's very real need for offensive lineman in this recruiting class. The 6 foot five, 270 pound commit steps outside of the parameters of leaner and consequently faster linemen of Ohio State's prior years. With a fingertip to fingertip span that exceeds his height, Jacoby shows great promise. He's quick and can maneuver himself to stop linebackers and block players, even when distanced from the line of scrimmage. He has a versatility that could have him playing guard, or even tackle. His adaptability makes him a valuable choice who can fill a variety of roles.

What Chris Olave's Commitment Means For The Buckeyes

ChrisOlave2

Similar in body type, playing style and even background, I have to say that Chris Olave reminds me of a younger Devin Smith. That may seem like a bit of overkill for some Ohio State fans, I get it, but Chris Olave will have to earn that comparison and I believe him to be up to the task.

The comparison comes based mostly on speed. As you know, Smith was not only a state-champion long-jumper but also a star on the track, making him a real crowd favorite. Olave is equally strong in track and field although he did not play football his junior year due to transfer rules. Despite that, he still earned several offers based on his basketball and track efforts... along with word of mouth. It was not until October that Ohio State offered Olave a contract after seeing him play in his first handful of senior season games.

Ohio State Might Get 4 Star Receiver Jake Smith

JakeSmithNotreDame

Coach Urban Meyer and his excellent staff have put their name in the hat for a chance for four star wide receiver Jake Smith out of Notre Dame Preparatory School (AZ).

Smith is a future conference leader and a sought after commodity for many schools. The junior has over twenty offers from schools like Alabama, California, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, and now Ohio State. He caught many scout's eyes with his 2000 yard season. He had 33 catches for one thousand and fifty five yards and ran for another eleven hundred and thirty five yards. Altogether he amassed 26 touchdowns and almost won a state championship for his Saints team.

WR Kamryn Babb Committed to Ohio State

KamrynBabb

Once again proving why he is one of the best coaches in the nation right now, if not of all time, Urban Meyer got another huge boost when Kamryn Babb committed to Ohio State. This news came in on Tuesday after Babb made an official announcement during a video he posted on Twitter.

Babb was in an interview saying that Coach Meyer's dedication to him was a big part of his decision to commit. This was in reference to his season-ending knee injury last season. This along with what he stated was a "family environment" were major factors in his decision.

It is clear that this young man is especially excited to play for Coach Meyer and receivers coach Zach Smith. He should help solidify the receiving corps for the next few years. The four star ranked prospect even turned down scholarships from other big name schools like Michigan, Notre Dame, Missouri, UCLA, and USC.

5-star DE Brenton Cox Won't Commit To OSU

BrentonCox

The top-ranked 2018 OSU recruiting class took a huge hit when DE Brenton Cox announced that he won't be playing with the Buckeyes. He apparently Tweeted out the end of his commitment after a visit to Alabama. This leaves OSU without a single DE in their recruiting class.

Cox was supposed to visit the OSU campus later in the month. He would have been eligible to sign during the early signing period that starts on December 20. It's now unclear whether Brenton Cox will even make the visit at all.

Senior defensive ends Jalyn Holmes and Tyquan Lewis are set to graduate, which means that the Buckeyes won't really have much in the way of scholarship defensive ends. Fourth-year junior Sam Hubbard could have left during the 2016 season, but he decided to stay in school for another year. He'll more than likely declare for the NFL draft in 2018.

Courtney Ramey Slated For Louisville Is Courted By Buckeye

CourtneyRamey

In hopes to add to the 2018 roster, Ohio State is actively recruiting Courtney Ramey. Ramey was previously committed to the Louisville Cardinals. The withdraw of the commitment has urged Chris Holtmann and the coaching staff to begin courting the senior point guard. This news comes just days before the signing of four other top ranked players. It appears that the Ohio State coaching staff is not done adding to the 2018 class.

Ohio State is not alone in the pursuits for the talented Ramey. Other programs pursuing the point guard include Texas, Oklahoma State and Villanova. This means that the Buckeyes are far from an automatic shoe in as the choice for Ramey. However, the coaching staff is hopeful as his 6'3" frame fits perfectly in the team that they are building for 2018.
