Recruiting week in review: Good and bad
By Brad Bournival
You win some, you lose some.
One day after losing former Ohio State commit Lawrence Marshall (Southfield, Mich./Southfield) to Michigan, the Buckeyes landed their eighth commitment of the 2014 class.
It was a week of ups and downs, but one filled with Ohio State news, good and bad.
Here’s what happened in another busy week:
On Sunday, Lonnie Johnson ended a six-month courtship and became the latest to give his commitment to the Buckeyes. Johnson’s first order of business is to start recruiting for his new team. Big-time target Chase Winovich visited Michigan over the weekend and gave his take on his visit. He plans on taking a trip to in-state Pittsburgh before making a decision. Sophomore running back Soso Jamabo talked about his future and what really mattered in his college decision-making process.
On Saturday, Marshall brought bad news to Ohio State when he committed to Michigan.
On Friday, an offer went out to a big freshman offensive lineman in Erik Swenson. The 6-foot-6, 280-pound Swenson becomes the fourth athlete out of the Class of 2016 with an offer from the Buckeyes.
