Weekend wrap: Big Ten 

August, 19, 2013
Ohio State landed yet another big recruit, a few prospects snuck in visits before the season starts and there are still some big questions left to be answered after this week in Big Ten recruiting. Here is a look at what happened over the past week.

Biggest commitment: Ohio State started the weekend right with its 17th commitment in the Class of 2014 when the Buckeyes grabbed athlete Curtis Samuel (Brooklyn, N.Y./Erasmus). Samuel clocked a 4.36 40-yard dash at The Opening and joins an impressive group of speedsters for Urban Meyer. In the last two years, the two-time national champion has nabbed Dontre Wilson (4.33 40-yard dash), Ezekiel Elliott (4.33), James Clark (4.38), Parris Campbell Jr. (4.41), Terry McLaurin (4.41), Jalin Marshall (4.42), Corey Smith (4.50) and Samuel for his offense. If speed doesn’t kill, it certainly will contribute.

Biggest offer: Indiana proved it wasn’t going to ignore Illinois talent in 2015 when it offered Jacksonville offensive tackle Gabe Megginson and Maroa-Forsyth quarterback Jack Hockaday on Sunday. In 2014, the Hoosiers offered 22 athletes out of Illinois. In 2013, Indiana offered 21 out of the state.
