It’s the quiet period for recruiting, but Ohio State never takes a break. While contact with prospective pledges isn’t as easy, the Buckeyes are doing as much as they can to keep themselves in the forefront of recruits’ minds.

This week wasn’t any different, with offers dished out and pledges giving their two cents about visits to other schools.

One particular junior put out a top three and then changed his mind when Ohio State came calling with an offer.

  • Friday brought news from ESPN Watch List tight end Jeb Blazevich, who has Ohio State in his final six and wants to make a decision much sooner instead of later. Linebacker Petera Wilson, who has had an offer from the Buckeyes for a while, talked about his interest in Ohio State as well as Florida State and Georgia.
