Buckeye Recruiting Week In Review had wall-to-wall coverage of Friday Night Lights beginning late last Friday night and all the way through the weekend. In the last edition of “Buckeye Recruiting Week In Review” we posted links to close to a dozen articles from the first Ohio State Friday Night Lights. We continued our coverage early this past week with articles on offensive linemen Nick Richardson and Jamarco Jones and defensive end Nile Sykes.

Lewis and his mother visited Ohio State last weekend marking the second time Lewis has been to OSU in just over a month

2013 defensive end/outside linebacker target Tyquan Lewis did not work out at Friday Night Lights, but he and his mother visited Ohio State last weekend. Lewis’ discussed what his mother thought of the visit and Meyer and more in an article I posted on Monday.

On Monday morning I posted the latest edition of What I Am Hearing. In this edition I had information on a super prospect I may have given the Buckeyes as assist with, a potential good sign with 5-star linebacker Raekwon McMillan, a top 2014 target that is hearing all the right things from Meyer and more.

With the first Ohio State Friday Night Lights in the books, I posted my thoughts and opinions of the camp including whether or not it lived up to the hype, who excelled and who I was and was not sold on.

2014 offensive lineman Kyle Trout (Lancaster, Ohio/Lancaster) attended Friday Night Lights, but did not work out. However, the OSU coaches were glad he could make it and Trout spent time talking to Meyer and some of the Buckeye assistant coaches.

Huge 2014 offensive tackle Denzel Ward (Chicago, Ill./King College Prep) worked out at Friday Night Lights and came away very impressed. The 6-foot-8 and 290-pound Ward spoke with Orlando Pace, LeCharles Bentley, Ed Warninner and Mike Vrabel among others while he was in the “Shoe.”

2014 running back L.J. Scott (Marion, Ohio/Harding) was another prospect that came away very impressed with Friday Night Lights. In fact afterwards Scott called the event a “life changing experience.”

It was another very busy week for Buckeye recruiting and another very busy week here at We continue our wall-to-wall Buckeye recruiting coverage tomorrow with my Sunday feature which this week is the latest edition of my Ohio State 2013 Hot List.
