WRR: A Little This and That

Recruiting for the 2015 class is becoming another sequel in “The Fast and The Furious” chain. In my honest opinion, I could see Ohio State at 10-12 commits by the end of July and still be in on the other announcements later down the road.

Here is how I see it playing out:

  • The TE that everyone wants and who wants to commit everywhere, Chris Clark, will visit today as being reported. He says he will choose between Ohio State, Michigan State, Michigan and North Carolina (where he committed earlier this year). He is going to visit each of the schools one more time before announcing at The Opening on July 8th. Let’s hope Urban can close the deal here, but it’s anyone’s guess with this kid.
  • The Buckeyes received a verbal commitment from Tyler Green, who earned his offer at camp.  He is an impressive physical young man at 6’3″ and 195lbs.  I have heard comparisons of Green to Malik Hooker from last year’s class.  Green’s upside is huge, and getting a long ranging Safety who tackles and can cover is paramount. He’ shown that ability at this past camp. I always love the recruits that commit to Ohio State because they want to be Buckeyes! The other thing not to be overlooked here is that he attends DeMatha Catholic High in Maryland.  DeMatha Catholic is consistently producing top recruits.  Getting our foot in the door, with Larry Johnson recruiting that state, is a great thing.
  • Now on to the Big Guys in the trenches. By the end of his manic Monday, Grant Schmidt realized he wanted to be a Buckeye and committed to play for Coach Meyer. At 6’6, 275lbs, this is by no means a stretch by the staff here.  Schmidt came to camp and showed Meyer’s personnel enough that they took his early commitment on Monday. Schmidt will be the first player from South Dakota to play for Ohio State.

George Hill Is A Buckeye!!!

Hello, 2016!

Most of us who aren’t recruiting junkies probably couldn’t name the six members of Ohio State’s 2015 recruiting class, as few as that might currently be.

So thinking about 2016 is even more of a stretch… but it’s time to start getting limbered up, as the Buckeyes have picked up their first verbal from a rising Junior, Hubbard’s George Hill.

As a sophomore, Hill managed almost 1200 yards and 15 touchdowns on just  one hundred carries- not too shabby, when you remember that he shares the backfield with Buckeye 2015 target LJ Scott. Having both in Columbus as teammates again would not be a horrible thing for Ohio State… and would definitely be a nightmare for the opposition.

Hill is described by most as a running back/receiver hybrid, similar to Curtis Samuel or Dontre Wilson. A four star by most recruiting services, the 6′ 180 pound junior to be was targeted by Michigan State, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Cincinnati; but chose the school that he had liked since he was a child.

Hill visited Ohio State three times before today’s decision, but has been on the coaches’ radar for quite some time. After the jump, you can see what he’ll bring to the table: Read More
