What Chris Olave's Commitment Means For The Buckeyes


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


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


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


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.

Antwuan Jackson Recalls Transfer Woes


JUCO Target Talks About Transfer, Another Opportunity to Make the Correct Decision

Just over seven days ago, the Buckeyes made a scholarship offer to Antwuan Jackson, the defensive tackle from Blinn Junior College. Jackson was a four star rated prospect, who moved from Auburn after his freshman season as a redshirt.

As was stated at the time, Jackson - who is six foot three inches tall and 305 pounds - gave serious consideration to Ohio State prior to signing with the Tigers. He made a visit officially to the 2015 17/14 defeat to Michigan State. He developed a rapport with Larry Johnson, the defensive line coach at that time. This is why Auburn prevented a potential transfer to the Buckeyes --- along with other SEC programs (including Georgia Southern, Mercer and Clemson) --- once he declared his intention to depart the program in May.

There Is Balance In The Buckeyes As Master Teague III Joins The Force


The Buckeyes are now counting on Master Teague III to help carry them to victory in 2018. It's a huge responsibility for the young Tennessee running back, but it was no secret that Master Teague III wanted to go to Ohio State University all along.

His wish became self-fulfilling on Friday during the OSU camp. That's why the Master Teague III Twitter account literally lit up with a video about his landmark decision. It's a huge challenge, says Master Teague III, but the die is cast.

No one could be more dramatic or flamboyant than the Murfreesboro, Tennessee speedster himself who showered his Twitter followers with the Master Teague III morphing into his past, present, and future play shirts. The message was clear.

So at this point, there's no turning back for Master Teague III, who stands 5' 11" and weighs 210 pounds. He really owned it during the one-day summer camp. With that brand of razzle-dazzle performance, nobody doubts that his sports stats will continue to make the climb.

WR Mark Richards Never Had It So Good


Maybe this is as good as it gets for WR Mark Richards, who had been serenaded last week by offers from the Big Five led by Ohio State University. If WR Mark Richards were a girl, he would have walked on a red carpet of rose petals. That's how intense the courtship was as Ohio State went on a recruiting offensive for the football season.

If WR Mark Richards bites the bait planted for him, he may be in for more. But as it is right now, the 4-star 2019 class member appears to be playing hard to get and enjoying Ohio's courtship dance in an almost noncommittal fashion.

It's a great strategy for WR Mark Richards because it seems to be working. The Buckeyes negotiators just might have to put more on the table. After all, the brother of wide out Ahmmon Richards could swing the Hurricanes way.

Josh Proctor, the Four Star Safety, Declares Commitment to the Buckeyes

Ohio State just received a commitment from Josh Proctor, the 'Sooner State' standout safety from Okla...

Proctor, who weighs 185 pounds and is six foot two inches tall, made this announcement on Saturday. He was also contemplating offers from schools such as Texas and Oklahoma in the Big Twelve area.

Proctor believes that it might surprise many in his locality that he will play away from home. In an interview, he said that - because people know where he grew up and his relatives played in OU - they expect him to follow suit.

However, he feels that he has a good rapport with the Ohio State coaches, and therefore will be able to perform well for them.

Taron Vincent Commits To Ohio State

Taron Vincent

Coach Urban Meyer's Ohio State Buckeye Defense got a little better today with the announcement that five-star recruit, defensive tackle Taron Vincent has committed to play for the scarlet and grey from next season.

Ranked the number one defensive tackle and 21st overall player in all high school, Vincent brings size and athleticism to the Buckeyes defense.

Playing his high school football at Florida's IMG Academy, Vincent's play made him a standout. Standing 6-1 and weighing 290 lbs, his ability to play the run and rush the passer caught the eye of many a division one scout.

Jaelen Gill Joins The Buckeyes


The Buckeyes have acquired a commitment from the all-purpose, top-ranking, Curtis Samuel style backer of Ohio State.

The four star running back and a target of Ohio State, Jaelen Gill confirms his commitment with the Buckeyes.

Monday night Gill entered a message via Twitter with the world buzzing: "My home is forever my home. I will come back always! This situation (Playing at Ohio State.) helps me in my personal growth."

It is interesting that his post occurred less than forty-eight hours prior to announcing his commitment.


As time passes, it is clear that it was only a smokescreen. Actually, he is not leaving his home.
