Ohio State’s Top Targets in the 2012 Class

As summer camps approach, the Ohio State coaching staff will be looking to continue narrowing down their top targets in the 2012 class.

While they have already seen many players at camp in previous years, they will get one last one-on-one evaluation period before making the final push for their top targets over the summer and fall.

A lot can happen between a players junior and senior years of high school, and as always, some surprise camp offers will likely emerge.

Most of the time, the camp offers replace national prospects that received token early offers. More often than not, the chances of landing some of the national prospects are slim to none from the beginning. You offer just to be sure and to establish contact with coaches and programs around the country.

At this point, the staff has a good idea of the national prospects with legitimate interest, making it possible to evaluate players with an eye on replacing current offers with no interest in the Buckeyes.

Before summer camp evaluations and a new round of offers, here is a look at Ohio State’s early offers that they still have an above average shot at landing. Read More

It seems that new offers from Ohio State  have slowed down just a bit, but with Junior day wrapping up and the spring game approaching, there is still plenty to talk about when it comes to 2012 recruiting.

As mentioned, last weekend was Junior day at Ohio State, which is traditionally a big deal in recruiting.  There were at least 10 recruits spotted at the basketball game on Sunday.  This weekend could be just as important.  Bam Bradley, Kyle Kalis, Sam Grant and several other prospects will be in town to take in the biggest basketball game of the season against Wisconsin.

As always, make sure to check out our 2012 Recruiting Big Board for all of Ohio State’s commitments, targets, links to detailed player pages, and a continuously updated list of verbally offered players.
