More big names confirm Ohio State visits

It’s going to be one heck of a busy month for Ohio State as unofficial visitors pour into Columbus, Ohio, for a look at the Buckeyes.
We’ve already talked about many of the big names set to visit the Horseshoe, but the visitors keep coming.
And the names are loaded with a who’s who on the ESPN Watch List as well as a big junior college offensive tackle who has already scheduled an official visit with Ohio State in November.
Sophomore offensive tackle George Brown Jr. will take in Saturday’s practice, and Watch List tight end Jeb Blazevich (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Christian) confirmed he will visit March 26. Wide receiver Derek Kief (Cincinnati/LaSalle) said he will be in Columbus on March 30.
April 4 will be a big day as Watch List wide receiver Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) will join quarterback Darius Wade (Middletown, Del./Middletown). Both confirmed their visits Monday morning.
Junior college offensive tackle Chad Mavety will take part in a big April 6 weekend full of visitors.
Watch List tight end Mark Andrews (Scottsdale, Ariz./Desert Mountain) rounds out the list with a visit April 18.
Of the 20 individuals that have confirmed visits to Ohio State, 11 are Watch List juniors. A look at who is planning trips to Columbus:
