Ohio State outlook: Top 5 WRs in 2014
By Brad Bournival
As the 2014 recruiting class comes more and more into focus following what was yet another strong national signing day for Urban Meyer, BuckeyeNation is taking a position-by-position look at the juniors.
Today, we examine the wide receivers, a position that highlighted the 2013 class with four four-star athletes signed, including three commitments in the final eight days.
Here are the top five wide receivers of 2014 not committed somewhere else and with an offer from the Buckeyes. All five are ESPN Watch List selections.
Outlook: It’s going to be very hard to pull the 6-2, 171-pound Lane out of the SEC, but he has indicated he will drag the recruiting process out all the way until signing day, and everybody knows how well Meyer closes.
Outlook: He has a long way to go before he commits, but the 6-1, 175-pound Brown might be hard to snare out of the Pac-12. He recently visited UCLA and USC and had nothing but positive things to say about both.
Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Cincinnati, Clemson, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Texas Tech, UCLA, USC, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, West Virginia
Outlook: The 6-foot, 196-pound Kitt is headed to Ohio State for an unofficial visit April 6. He’s already a big fan of the Buckeyes. A strong visit could help sway the junior even more toward Columbus.
