The week started first thing Sunday morning with my Sunday feature. This past week I had the latest edition of my 2013 Ohio State Offers & Odds – Defense. There were several players on my list with odds of becoming a Buckeye at close to 50% or slightly better.
Ohio State linebacker target Mike Mitchell
On Monday morning I posted the latest edition of What I Am Hearing. In this edition I had information on whether or not the Buckeyes could fit Mike Mitchell, Daniel McMillian and Tyquan Lewis – all three – into their 2013 recruiting class. I also had an item on a star defensive end that is an Urban Meyer fan, Orlando Pace at Friday Night Lights and more.
The Buckeyes have offered a scholarship to 2014 wide receiver prospect Speedy Noil and Noil says he plans to visit Ohio State. Noil is the country’s No. 63 overall prospect in the 247Sports rankings.
Speaking of 2014 prospects, the Buckeyes have offered a scholarship to defensive back Damon Webb who has attended two Ohio State football camps in the past two months including Friday Night Lights. Webb is already talking about another trip to Ohio State.
Urban Meyer and Tom Herman have been evaluating 2014 quarterbacks. They won’t decide who to offer a scholarship until part way through this coming football season. One of the quarterbacks they are very interested in is Kyle Allen who camped at Ohio State in late June. Allen will make the trip from Arizona back to Columbus for a big Buckeye home game this season.
Caleb Henderson is another 2014 quarterback very high on Meyer and Herman’s lists. Henderson camped at Ohio State twice this summer including Friday Night Lights on July 27. He received plenty of good feedback after the camps and feels like he really helped his stock by attending the OSU camp under the lights.
247Sports recruiting analyst Keith Niebuhr stopped at Tarboro (N.C.) High School on Thursday and did a video interview with Ohio State defensive end/outside linebacker target Tyquan Lewis. It might be just a matter of time until Lewis is a Buckeye.
It was another very busy week for Buckeye recruiting and another very busy week here at Bucknuts.com. We continue our wall-to-wall Buckeye recruiting coverage tomorrow with my Sunday feature which this week is the second edition of my Ohio State 2014 Hot List.
