Tyquan Lewis is a Buckeye!

North Carolina DE/LB Tyquan Lewis has officially announced his plans to attend college at Ohio State, becoming the 17th commitment in the Buckeye’s 2013 recruiting class. Based on recent interviews with Tyquan, this decision doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Lewis’ journey towards this commitment started on June 10 when he attended camp in […]

Ohio State Recruiting: Vonn Bell

Georgia safety Vonn Bell is one of the top defensive backs in the country in the 2013 class and one of the top recruiting targets left for Ohio State as signing day approaches. Bell currently lists his top seven schools as: Ohio State, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Texas, Clemson and Vanderbilt- although he may cut that […]

Ohio State Recruiting: Dorian Johnson

After de-committing from Penn State early in August, PA OT Dorian Johnson (6’6″ 280 lbs 4-star) instantly reemerged as one of Ohio State’s top targets in the 2013 recruiting class. Johnson’s new top three includes Ohio State, Pitt and Virginia Tech and he plans to take official visits to all three. Optimistically, this is a two horse race […]

Tyquan Lewis Interview with 247 Sports

Four-star NC DE Tyquan Lewis will decide between Ohio State, North Carolina and LSU- possibly in the near future. Here is a brand new interview with Tyquan from 247 Sports. Tyquan has plenty to say about Ohio State, including: Through the recruiting process, he has developed the closest bond with Urban Meyer and Mike Vrabel. […]

Ohio State Recruiting Update: New Targets

We’re back again to update you on some exciting new additions to the 2013 Big Board. Typically recruiting dies down somewhat once fall practice starts, but that was to be expected anyways this year given so many early verbals. Even with focus turning towards the season, official written offers give a good indication of who […]

Ohio State Football Recruiting Update: 7/30/12

In the aftermath of Friday Night Lights and Girdiron Kings, the recruiting picture for Ohio State’s 2013 class continues to come into focus as the final spots are narrowed down and filled. In fact, the coaches appear to have such a good idea of how the rest of the class will look that they have […]

Friday Night Lights Notebook

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has made it no secret that he loves speed. Because of Meyer’s love for speed, it should come as no surprise that Friday Night Lights concluded with all participants lining up by position on the 20 yard line to run 30 or 40 yard dashes to determine the fastest player […]

A Comparison of the 2013 OSU-Michigan Recruiting Classes

In years past, July was a time when offers were still being earned and there were plenty of names going around for who might round out the rest of a recruiting class. Now, with recruiting so accelerated, July is the time to compare the almost completed classes of two bitter rivals. While some spots remain […]

Ohio State's Top 10 Remaining Targets in 2013

10. Tyquan Lewis, DE/LB, North Carolina The defensive line class is already incredibly stacked this year, making Tyquan Lewis more of a luxury to add rather than a necessity, which is why he comes in at #10 on this list. Still, the coaching staff is pursuing Lewis heavily after viewing him in person at camp […]

Ohio State Recruiting: Puting a Bow on 2013

Let me start by saying that it is quite remarkable how far along the 2013 class already is considering we are still over eight months away from signing day. Although the quick turnaround on the commitments of linebackers Alex Anzalone and Lewis Neal shortly after the Spring Game was less than ideal (to put it […]

Ohio State Recruiting Update: Catching Up

Some of you may have noticed that our recruiting pages haven’t been updated since the end of April (until now, that is). This has been due to yours truly being in Hawaii for the past two weeks. The good news is that the six hour time difference has made it difficult to fall asleep at a […]

Ohio State Recruiting: Spring Game Roundup

As expected, the Spring Game brought a flurry of commitments Ohio State’s way. Although we tried to temper our expectations initially, things couldn’t have gone much better with PA LB Alex Anzalone and FL DL Joey Bosa both making their plan to be Buckeyes official. NC LB/DE Lewis Neal followed up with a surprise commitment […]

Ohio State Recruiting: Spring Game Extravaganza!

Although some recruiting excitement has trickled in over the past several weeks, most observers expect the floodgates to really open this weekend at Ohio State. That flood may have started a day or two early with OH DL Tracy Sprinkle and TX QB J.T. Barrett becoming commitments 9 and 10 for the 2013 recruiting class over the […]

Ohio State Recruiting: 2013 Linebackers

Ohio State reloaded at linebacker in the 2012 class with a haul consisting of Josh Perry, Luke Roberts, David Perkins, Camren Williams, and Jamal Marcus. I also like to throw RS freshman Connor Crowell into that group since a leg injury prevented him from practicing last year as a part of the 2011 class. Despite […]

Ohio State Recruiting: 2013 Defensive Backs

We’re back with another 2013 recruiting position overview. We may be a little late with our review of the defensive backs considering the players that are already committed, but that is a good thing when you look at the talent already assembled. Additionally, limited remaining spots in the class make it easier to predict who […]

Ohio State Recruiting – Weekend Update

For Ohio State sports enthusiasts,  this weekend was a bit of a roller coaster. The hype leading up to the final four, the start of spring practice, and a big recruiting weekend in Columbus created a lot of excitement. Obviously, the loss to Kansas was a huge low- but the positive notes out of spring […]

Ohio State Recruiting: Malik Zaire to Notre Dame

Notre Dame went on a major recruiting run this past weekend, landing three big time offensive tackle prospects (including two with Ohio State offers) and Ohio quarterback Malik Zaire out of Kettering Archbishop Alter. Zaire was offered by Ohio State’s previous coaching staff and continued to be recruited by Urban Meyer- clearly he was one […]

Ohio State Recruiting: 2013 Tight Ends

Like most things at Ohio State, tight end recruiting- and more generally the tight end position are in line for some changes under Urban Meyer. During the Tressel era, the tight end became somewhat of a running joke in Columbus due to their perpetual lack of involvement in the offense (with a few notable exceptions). […]

Ohio State Recruiting: 2013 Wide Receivers

Receiver was a position that held the Buckeyes back on the field last year. With Posey being out 10 games and the loss of Reed midway through the year, the team struggled tremendously with consistency and production from the position. As a result, the receiving stats from last season are painful to review. If the […]

Ohio State Recruiting: 2013 Running Backs

Talking about running back recruiting has been a nice treat for Ohio State over the past several years given the level of success we have seen. After last year’s class of Warren Ball and Brionte Dunn, the position isn’t the biggest need this year, although the staff is clearly looking to add at least one […]
