Buckeye Recruiting Week In Review

The week started first thing Sunday morning with the latest from one of the stars of Friday Night Lights, 2014 wide receiver Artavis Scott. The Florida standout is talking about another visit to Ohio State.

Did Jeb Blazevich give Urban Meyer the answer Meyer was hoping to hear?

On Monday morning I posted the latest edition of What I Am Hearing. In this edition I had information on super 2014 tight end Jeb Blazevich and his answer to Urban Meyer’s question as to how interested he is in Ohio State, the Ohio State-Michigan game already setting up to be a huge recruiting weekend for the Buckeyes and much more.

The Buckeyes are making a strong bid to land a spectacular group of 2014 linebackers. One of their targets is Cameron Hampton. The Texas star says Ohio State and LSU are his top two choices. He has scholarship offers from both as well as a number of others.

On Tuesday I did a chat. Many great questions were asked in the 1 ½ hour session we had on Buckeye football recruiting.

Meyer and his staff are going from coast-to-coast with their recruiting and their search certainly includes New Jersey star Jabrill Peppers the country’s No. 1 cornerback prospect in the 247Sports rankings. Peppers has at least 20 scholarship offers including Ohio State, USC and Florida. Peppers has a top six and OSU is one of the six.

The Buckeyes don’t have a commitment from a pure linebacker in their 2013 recruiting class. They would like to change that by landing either Mike Mitchell or Daniel McMillian, or preferably both. McMillian, a Florida commitment, says there is a good chance he makes an official visit to Ohio State for one of the Buckeyes’ home games this season.

The Buckeyes have offered a scholarship to the country’s No. 4 cornerback prospect, Jalen Tabor. In fact Meyer is personally involved in Tabor’s recruitment and offered him during the winter. In an article I posted on Friday morning Tabor names the schools he has an eye on and Ohio State is one of them.

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 will be the latest edition of my 2013 Ohio State Hot List.
