2011 Recruiting…What’s Next?

Written January 18th, 2011 by Joe Laing

With Ejuan Price now in the 2011 class, tBBC takes a look at what is on the horizon for the 2011 class.

Price takes Ohio State’s count to 21 recruits. At this point, no one is sure how much room is truly left in the class (transfers could bump the number up), but we do know that there are 5 guys still very much on the radar screen.

Curtis Grant

FL LB Curtis Grant

He visited Florida this past weekend and left with good things to say but he still has Ohio State on the brain as well. Grant has a visit to UVA next week and UNC is his last visit.  We are still in this one and I think it is a Florida/tOSU battle.

FL WR Ja’Juan Story

He will be visiting tOSU next weekend, and before the visit he will host an in house this week with JT. The good news is a player from Florida doesn’t visit Ohio in late January for the fun of it.  There is true interest here, but I still don’t see him leaving Florida.

Glenville OL Aundrey Walker

All signs point Buckeye, and we can expect an announcement close to signing day.  The other thing to look for is his jump up the national rankings after his performance at the Army All-American Game.

GA LB James Vaughters

He is down to Ohio State, Stanford and Florida.  The question is: will he be loyal to a school who lost their coach or can Ohio State or Florida sway him? He is set to visit Florida this coming weekend and Columbus the following weekend.

MD ATH Darius Jennings

He is still down to UVA, Wake Forest, and the Buckeyes.  He visited Wake this past weekend and was set to decide sometime after that. There is still no solid time table, however.

______________________

Once again, I’m not sure how much room we have, but would we take all 4 of these guys + Price?  I don’t see Vaughters and Grant attending the same school and think Jennings goes to Wake.

I say we land Walker and either Vaughters or Grant, but not both.

That would put us at 23.

    I stand by what I said in an update a few weeks ago. Any of the four outside of Walker would be a very pleasant surprise for this class.

    If I HAD to guess, I would say Vaughters is the most likely of the four to wear scarlet and gray. He is a “Tressel recruit” through and through.
