Buckeye Recruiting Week In Review

The week started on Friday as I posted a thread on the games last weekend involving the Buckeyes’ verbal commitments. Among the top performers was Ezekiel Elliott who rushed for 222 yards and had six touchdowns in his team’s victory.

Raekwon McMillan likes what he has heard about what goes on behind the scenes at Ohio State.

On Sunday morning I posted my start of the week feature which last week was the first edition of my “2014 Ohio Top 10.” Two linebackers head the list and the Buckeyes have already offered a scholarship to a number of the prospects in my Top 10.

On Monday morning I posted the latest edition of What I Am Hearing. In this edition I had information on 5-star 2014 linebacker Raekwon McMillan who likes what he has heard and seen of what goes on behind the scenes in Urban Meyer’s program, the Buckeyes stealing the recruiting show in East Lansing, a top prospect being sold on the atmosphere at Ohio State and much more.

On Tuesday morning I had a story on one of the most recent 2014 prospects the Buckeyes have offered a scholarship, defensive end Dante Sawyer. Sawyer leaves no doubt he is interested in OSU. In fact he is talking about visiting Ohio State sometime in the next few weeks.

Meyer and his staff are going to use tonight’s Ohio State-Nebraska game as the backdrop for a big recruiting weekend. Bucknuts had a preview of the recruiting weekend posted on Tuesday.

Every weekend we look at how the Buckeyes’ commitments played and how their teams did. On Wednesday morning Bucknuts took a look at how the future of the Ohio State football program has done with a progress report on how Meyer’s offensive commitments have done over the first half of their senior seasons. Next week we will look at the performances of the Buckeyes’ defensive commitments.

Wide receiver Ryan Timmons plans to attend the Ohio State-Nebraska game and the Buckeyes have told him he might be close to receiving an Ohio State scholarship offer.

On Friday morning had feature stories on two of the top prospects visiting Ohio State tonight as the Buckeyes take on Nebraska. 2013 lineman Donovan Munger and 2014 safety Todd Kelly are both planning to be in the ‘Shoe’ for the big showdown.

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 stories on prospects visiting Ohio State this weekend as the Buckeyes welcome in a large and talented group of prospects for tonight’s nationally televised showdown between the Bucks and Nebraska.
