Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 1/25 - Kyle Berger on deck?
By Ian Cuevas on Jan 25, 6:00a
Time is running out for the class of 2013, and the Buckeyes are making some of their final moves for this year's class. Will Urban Meyer and his staff have time to secure one or two more potential playmakers?
It was an action packed Thursday for Urban Meyer and the Ohio State coaching staff. Before we get into the nitty gritty, let's take a quick run through of some of the takeaways from the day that was in Buckeye recruiting:
* We mentioned Dontre Wilson ( http://www.landgrantholyland.com/2013/1/24/3912538/ohio-state-recruiting-upcoming-visitors-for-the-buckeyes-2013-class ) visiting Ohio State this weekend yesterday. His father's implied that he could commit (or in Oregon's case, recommit) to a school, depending on the visit goes, as soon as this weekend.
* 2014 T Kyle Trout ( https://twitter.com/alex11w/status/294619270141329408 ) will be visiting the Buckeyes this weekend as well.
* 2014 T Donell Stanley is expected to meet ( https://twitter.com/GeneStarwind419/status/294588537020481536 ) with North Carolina this weekend, but we learned he already met with Ohio State earlier this week.
* As confirmed by our Zach Clark, former Ohio State target LB James Hearns decommitted from Florida over what was rumored to be his inability to qualify. It's unlikely Ohio State will be interested as their student athlete admittance standards are roughly equal to that of the Gators.

'14 OLB Kyle Berger mentioned on Twitter yesterday that he's thinking hard about becoming a commitment in the class of 2014 for Ohio State. '14 OL commit Marcelys Jones is clearly trying to get Berger to come to Ohio State ( https://twitter.com/K_Bergs/status/294263807000326145 ), something that this coaching staff hasn't shied away from: getting the right kind of guys who can serve as living billboards to others to help create an even bigger and better class. Berger had 44 tackles for loss and 10 sacks this past season alone. Check out Berger's recently updated highlight tape: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=0ED8hgkyEa0
The Buckeyes also gave an offer out to '14 CB D.J. Smith which must have made a serious impact on him as he tweeted it almost immediately after the offer took place:
GOT OFFERED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF OHIO STATE TODAY!! #BuckeyeNation!!!
1:18 AM - 25 Jan 13
If you're concerned about him getting the words mixed up, I wouldn't look into it too much; he later corrected himself on the tweet. The 6'0", 180-pound corner clearly impressed the staff, as evidenced by the early offer.
Check out Smith's highlights from last year , linked to this post, below
EDIT, to add a few links
DJ is a very talented football player. Look for him to do big things in

Oh, no! Where have I heard that before?
Don't like Williams's film at all. The entire reel is of him getting thrown on and then making arm tackles. I don't see elite speed either.
