Give 11W credit for this, they are showing 2014 Florida LB Dillon Bates picked up an OSU offer this weekend while visiting, he is 6'3" and around 220, with 4.6 type speed and a heck of a blood line. Pretty good offer list for this early, with teams like Tennessee, South Carolina, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Miami and those types of around 20 or so offers.
They noted he had a great visit.
I did read Bates was visiting. I am sure 247 will confirm, but if so, OSU and Meyer hitting the south hard for talent, that is for sure.

You can start to see it finishing out this 13' class that Meyer is beginning to have a lot more pull down south. We keep racking up wins and they know we're for real, it's not just recruiting pitches. The coaches have so much momentum going into this bye week and they will def represent in Florida.
247 ticker now confirming Dillon Bates visited OSU for the Illinois game, and got an Ohio State offer.
Who is his "bloodlines"?
I'm hoping its Bill "Bad News" Bates! (only one of 3 Cowboy players I ever liked)

You got it with the blood lines.
Other sites reporting the Bates offer from OSU after his visit.
Love it, Urban hitting the south hard for elite talent.
That IS great bloodlines. Bates was almost Spielman to Tennessee fans. Other than getting trucked by Herschel Walker in college the guy was an animal, was the guy the NFL invented a spot in the all-star game for a special-teams player.
Bill Bates was f&^king nuts....same wacko geno-type as Plank.
hell, bill bates probably would get flagged every play nowadays. that guy was a hard nosed player.
Who didn't get trucked by Hershel.
I think Master was his Dad
His sophomore film makes me really want to see his junior film.
