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 were Jayme Thompson and Tracy Sprinkle.

James Quick was one of the many top prospects to attend the Ohio State-Nebraska game.

On Sunday we had wall-to-wall coverage of the prospects that visited Ohio State for the Buckeyes’ huge prime-time showdown with Nebraska. On Sunday had feature stories on James Quick, Marshon Lattimore, Marcelys Jones, Shelton Gibson and Ryan Timmons.

On Monday morning I posted the latest edition of What I Am Hearing. In this edition I had information on Cornelius Elder and how OSU fans should not sleep on him being a Buckeye, Urban Meyer and Mark Dantonio going after an Ohioan that Dantonio thinks could perhaps be another Le’Veon Bell, a top safety prospect that attended the Ohio State-Nebraska game and more.

On Monday night broke the news that quarterback JT Barrett had been given the results of his MRI and the results were not good. However, Barrett was going to get a second opinion on Wednesday. This was one of a number of “Quick Hitters” I had from what was a huge recruiting weekend for the Ohio State football program as the Bucks hosted Nebraska.

On Tuesday morning I had the reactions of many of the Buckeyes’ commitments that attended the Ohio State-Nebraska game.

On Tuesday evening Bucknuts had two more stories on prospects that attended the Ohio State-Nebraska game including 5-star offensive tackle Dorian Johnson. Johnson had a very good time and said the Bucks have inched closer to Pitt at the top of his list. Christopher Worley was also very impressed with what he experienced at the OSU-Nebraska game.

This past week the Buckeyes offered a scholarship to 2014 tight end Bryce Dixon from California. Dixon is hoping to make it to an Ohio State game sometime this season.

Wide receiver Tony Stevens committed to Florida State. Word was he had de-committed, though Stevens now says it was all a misunderstanding. But even though Stevens says he is still committed to the Seminoles, he says he is going to make an official visit to Ohio State the weekend of Nov. 24 when the Buckeyes host Michigan.

Meyer was on the phone with 2013 linebacker Skai Moore on Wednesday and told Moore he was being offered a scholarship. The offer immediately moved the Buckeyes up among Moore’s top three choices.

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

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 the latest edition of my 2013 Ohio State Hot List.
