Friday saw a list of juniors ready to visit Ohio State this weekend, though a late change of plans kept Myles Autry and Nick Chubb from visiting Columbus, Ohio. By the way, offensive linemen will be the focus of the Buckeyes in this recruiting class.
On Thursday, Johnny Townsendturned away Ohio State, opting instead for Florida, where his parents went to school, and the Buckeyes were finally able to put the wraps on a 2013 recruiting class that included 24 seniors, 12 ESPN 150 players -- 17 in all in the ESPN 300, one five-star cornerback and 17 others with four-star ratings or higher.
With signing day in the books, the focus turned to the top five juniors Ohio State needs to go after with an offer going out to a big defensive end who likes what the Buckeyes are all about.
Of course, having the top class in the Big Ten helps Ohio State.
Jacobs gave a hint that he might not be headed for Ohio State and then the next day bolted.
On Monday, former Buckeyes target Ryan Timmonsreflected back on an official visit to Florida. He eventually signed with in-state Kentucky, however. The pre-signing day story, though, came when ESPN 150 athlete Dontre Wilson gave his decommitment to Oregon and became a member of the Buckeyes’ third-ranked class.
