Ohio State kicked off its bye week by offering two of the hottest underclassman prospects in the country.

It started Saturday evening when 2014 linebacker Dillon Bates (Ponte Vedra, Fla./Ponte Vedra) was offered and continued Monday when 2015 running back Damien Harris (Berea, Ky./Madison Southern) nabbed an offer from the Buckeyes as well.

Bates took an unofficial visit to The Horseshoe on Saturday and witnessed Ohio State’s 52-22 win over Illinois, picking up an offer shortly after the game.
