Here’s a better look at the additions of Williams and Wilkinson as well as a behind-the-scenes view of Friday’s visitors:
Offers: Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Ohio State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt
Outlook: It’s a tentative top five, but it’s a top five nonetheless. Ohio State is there for Williams along with Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Tennessee and South Carolina, and a strong visit could do wonders in the recruitment of the 6-foot-1, 283-pound DT.
Offers: Buffalo, Illinois, Ohio, Toledo
Outlook: The Buckeyes, who have former teammate Cam Burrows already in the fold, are showing interest in the 6-3, 225-pound Wilkinson. It will be interesting to see what comes of this visit.
Offers: Alabama, Boston College, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Miami (Fla.), Michigan, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, South Carolina, Stanford, Tennessee, UCLA, USC
Outlook: The Watch List junior is visiting Michigan along with Bushell-Beatty before heading to Columbus, Ohio. The 6-foot, 185-pound Peppers has LSU, Michigan, Ohio State and Stanford among his leaders.
Offers: Florida, Florida State, Miami (Fla.), Michigan, Rutgers, Tennessee, UMass, West Virginia
Outlook: The 6-6, 320-pound Bushell-Beatty was impressed with his visit to Penn State -- the Nittany Lions haven’t offered him yet -- and will be in Columbus for the first time. He’d be an attractive package deal along with Peppers.
Offers: Boston College, Illinois, Louisville, Miami (Fla.), Miami (Ohio), Michigan State, Ohio, Ohio State, Stanford
Outlook: Keep an eye out on the 6-5, 225-pound Hubbard. He recently decommitted from Notre Dame lacrosse and has the Buckeyes as his only spring visit. His sister goes to Ohio State and the draw of an in-state offer might be enough to lure Hubbard to Columbus.
