Ohio State's battles with Michigan always seem to find their way to the recruiting wars as well.

While the Buckeyes butt heads with the Wolverines on several national recruits, they've only go head-to-head for Ohio standouts three times to date in the Class of 2015 as Michigan has only offered ESPN Junior 300 stars Shaun Crawford, Hjalte Froholdt and Justin Hilliard.

Of that trio, Froholdt and Hilliard also have offers from Ohio State. Froholdt picked up his Buckeyes offer on a visit in May, while Hilliard earned his after a senior advanced camp on June 9.

Here’s a look at both prospects:
