As we enter into the “Camp Season”, it’s good to take a look at where Ohio State’s recruiting efforts currently seem to stand.
I’ll admit that it’s next to impossible to predict what this class is going to look like in February, but I think it makes it easier when you look at who are the most likely players who will be in the class.
We’re definitely going to land a QB. Who exactly that is will be the question. Kyle Allen is the best passer, Brandon Harris probably has the most upside running the ball, DeShaun Watson is a perfect mix between the two and Zack Darlington fits in somewhere as well.
I don’t see the need for another RB in this class and don’t think the coaches will push hard for one until December or so (if they do at all) when they have a better idea if there will be a spot for one or not. Some people consider Parris Campbell a back and I like what I am hearing early from the ’15 class so I’m not worried at all.

3. Derek Kief
At 6’3″ I view Johnson as a perimeter WR and I think adding Kief would just about finish up the search for perimeter WRs in the class. Read More
A bit late on this, with all the shootyhoops happening, but Ohio State gained their third commitment of the day in about a 35 minute period this morning when Akron St. Vincent St. Mary’s Parris Campbell verballed to be the fifth member of the 2014 class.
A 5’11″ 170 pound speedster who currently plays running back for the Fighting Irish, Campbell is more than likely being recruited as a “pivot” in Coach Meyer’s offense.
Campbell held interest from Indiana, Michigan State, and Tennessee, and is listed as a four star athlete early in the recruiting process.
Parris is also a track star for the SVSM team that recently made news at the state relays. After the jump, you can see the speed that Ohio State is excited to have on the field. Read More
