Late December/early January verbal.

Great Iowa visit recently really hurt OSU's chances.

Nothing to change my mind about the Buckeyes being odds on.

It will be hard to get the nation's best tackle north, but he has set a visit here. The depth chart could be too appetizing to turn down.

6. Charlie Jones

RB is such a need, and he has now scheduled a visit. If Miami doesn't come in, maybe OSU could get the immediate impact RB we need.

Tops the list of DE's looking at the Buckeyes. Great year until his injury.

8. Brett Gallimore

Buckeyes in his top 5 and Ohio State was the first school out of his mouth to a non-Ohio State site when he named his top 5.

Really impressed me in our conversation. Look at that body in his picture in the database. That is what you are looking for in a high school OL prospect.

We may wait for a while based on what I was told recently.

11. SirDarean Adams

Ready to set his visit.

Measurables are scary. Like Vernon Gohlston, he could play a number of different positions. This staff loves versatile players.

13. Vernon Gholston

Great athlete is OSU's best shot at an out-of-state DE.

14. Rory Nicol

Big time offer list for a bigtime player. He knew too much about Ohio State and has been here too many times not to be serious about the Buckeyes.

15. Demario Pressley 20 - As long as he is listing the Buckeyes and is undecided, he stays on the list

Notes:

  • Delbert Ferguson's recent injury ends any chance of an OSU offer.
  • I lost faith Xavier Lee will visit.
  • Derrick Harvey set three visits, and if he takes his final two, the Buckeyes don't look to get one.
