**Golden State Safety Valve? … Is the Ohio State staff California dreaming? Well, not quite.
Urban spent some quality time at the state championships with Massillon Washington coach Jason Hall (right).
But they are recruiting the Golden State and at least one prospect they have been in contact with in the past month, safety Max Redfield, says he would like to make an official visit to Ohio State. Redfield was at one time a USC commitment. He is still interested in USC, but has also made official visits to Notre Dame and Washington. In addition to those three schools, Redfield is interested in Oregon and Ohio State.
Redfield has spoken with Tom Herman and Ed Warinner, but to this point the Buckeyes have not offered a scholarship nor asked him to make an official visit. But interestingly, in addition to saying he would like to make an official visit to Ohio State, Redfield adds that, “If I had to pick a favorite it would probably be Ohio State.”
There is no doubt the Buckeyes’ No. 1 target at safety is Vonn Bell. But Redfield’s name could come more prominently in play depending on what happens with Bell.
Redfield, who is from Mission Viejo, is a 4-star prospect in the 247Sports rankings. He is the No. 44 overall prospect, the No. 5 safety and No. 3 prospect in California.
**Face Time … It was convenient that several Ohio high school state championship games were held in Massillon this weekend. The Ohio State staff was on hand to check out a number of Buckeye commitments and underclassmen hopefuls. It also gave the staff a chance to be visible in front of the football community on hand.
