Offers out: Slipping through the cracks of a busy national signing day were offers handed out to 2014 running backs Joe Mixon (Oakley, Calif./Freedom) and Marcus Outlow (Norwich, Conn./Norwich Free Academy) and outside linebacker Petera Wilson (Memphis/White Station).
Mixon rushed for 1,443 yards on 201 carries and scored 20 touchdowns. The ESPN Watch List junior also notched 383 yards receiving on 18 catches and added six more scores. Mixon has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, California, Colorado, Fresno State, Houston, Idaho, Louisville, Michigan, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, UCLA, Utah, Utah State, Washington, Washington State and Wisconsin as well.
Outlow has offers from Boston College, Clemson, Connecticut, Florida, Iowa and Ohio State.
While sharing time with Joey Paparelli and Khaleed Exum-Strong, Outlow carried the ball 90 times for a team-leading 954 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also added two receiving touchdowns in the Wildcats’ run-heavy offense.
Wilson has offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Mississippi State, Ohio State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Tennessee, UCLA and USC.
Punting priorities: Also lost in the euphoria of the great signing day and junior day last week is what is next for the Buckeyes at punter.
While there are rumblings that Urban Meyer is still looking to fill a spot from the class of 2013 after Johnny Townsend picked Florida over Ohio State, he has options.
