Buckeye Recruiting Week In Review

On Sunday I began the day with the latest from Ohio State 2014 linebacker target Dillon Bates. Bates says the best is yet to come at Ohio State under Urban Meyer, and Bates is talking about visiting OSU again, probably this spring.

Mike Mitchell has been compared to former USC and current Houston Texan Brian Cushing.

On Monday morning I posted the latest edition of What I Am Hearing. In this edition I had information on perhaps the next Brian Cushing picking Ohio State, a potential second 2014 Cleveland area junior committing to Ohio State, the Buckeyes beating Michigan to the recruiting punch in the Wolverines’ backyard and more.

We broke the news here on Tuesday morning that Christopher Worley had scheduled an official visit to Ohio State the weekend of Jan. 11. At this point it is the only official visit Worley has scheduled.

The weekend of Jan. 12 will be a huge recruiting weekend for the Buckeyes with prospects making official visits and a big junior day on Sunday, Jan. 13. One of the Buckeyes’ top 2014 defensive back targets, Damon Webb, plans to visit OSU again that weekend.

Linebackers Trey Johnson and Mike Mitchell spent this past week getting ready for the Under Armour All-American Game and the Army All-American Bowl respectively, and making their college announcements at the games. The same goes for wide receiver James Quick at the Army All-American Bowl.

Steve Helwagen checked in with a video interview with future Buckeye Jalin Marshall who was getting ready for the Under Armour All-American Game this past week.

The Buckeyes lead the charge again when it comes to Big Ten recruiting. Dave Biddle looked at how the entire conference is doing with their 2013 recruiting efforts.

One of the prospects at the Under Armour All-American Game Buckeye fans are most interested in is 5-star safety Vonn Bell. Helwagen had the latest from Bell on Thursday morning including Bell’s thoughts on each of his three finalists.

On Thursday afternoon we talked recruiting as I held a three plus hour long chat on the Front Row Message Board. Then I followed up with the transcripts from the chat.

Will Joey Bosa be the next John Simon at Ohio State? Helwagen spoke with Bosa prior to the Under Armour All-American Game.

As of Thursday, Quick told Steve Wiltfong he was still pondering his decision, Ohio State or Louisville.

At the Under Armour All-American Game on Friday evening, 4-star linebacker Trey Johnson announced a commitment to Ohio State over scholarship offers from Florida, Tennessee and Penn State. Our coverage included my column on what impact Johnson’s decision will have on OSU football.

As you can see from above, it was another very busy week for Buckeye recruiting and another very, very busy week here at We continue our complete Buckeye recruiting coverage on Sunday with more from the Under Armour and U.S. Army All-American games.
