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.

Another day, another verbal, as Ohio State’s Camp Season continues to reap benefits.

Today, 6’6″, 285 pound Grant Schmidt became the fifth member of the “Elite ’15″ class for Ohio State, giving the Buckeyes his verbal following an excellent showing at yesterday’s skills camp.

Schmidt, from Roosevelt High in Sioux Falls, South Dakota was timed at a 4.9 40 yard dash earlier at the year… that’s moving, for a player projected to be an offensive tackle.

The Buckeyes were but one offer that the four star Schmidt held; he also received interest from Minnesota, Cincinnati, Iowa State, North Carolina, and Washington State. He is the first Buckeye to hail from The Mount Rushmore State.

According to our friend Jeremy Birmingham, Schmidt tested at a 4.7 agility and with a 29 inch vertical during camp on Sunday, enough to impress the coaching staff and have an offer extended. Today’s tour of the campus and academic support conversations with his parents were all that was necessary to seal the deal for the Buckeyes’ latest commitment.

After the jump, you can check out the highlight package leading into his senior year… pretty nice footwork, if you ask me: Read More
