In town this weekend. I am still not seeing this kid be real aggressive setting up visits. I think we could see a verbal.

2. Wesley Jefferson

25%

 Up

He talks a lot about Miami and Maryland, but he has not been anywhere but those 2. I can't believe he is not going to be more impressed with the Ohio State facilities and Jim Tressel.

3. Turk McBride

Spoke to him again just last night. We had a very positive conversation about Ohio State.

4. Aaron Sears

Looked great in the National All-Star game practices. One observer said he was the best lineman there. I am trying to confirm a 1/17 visit.

5.  Stanley McClover

Cut his list to 3 and has former  teammates here.

6. Shawn Crable

50%

 Up

Continued his stellar run at the national all-star game practices and played well in the game. Michigan is back in the picture, but I think the Buckeyes land this one. He is now more important with the loss of Burgess.

7. Ira Guilford

75%

 Up

I spoke to a player last night who said Guilford was the most impressive player at the Buckeye camp last summer. I think the odds are high that he verbals. His buddies Donte Whitner and Ashton Youboty are already enrolled.

8. Moe Dampeer

30%

 Up

The best tackle on the field at the national all-star game and the 2nd best lineman. Struck up a friendship with Crable and has family in Columbus. 

9. Jesse Holley

65%

 Up

Down to 2: Ohio State and Virginia. He's another who I would not be surprised if we see a verbal. The Buckeyes have hit New Jersey hard and stand a great chance at landing three from that state.

Great national all-star game performance. Holds the point of attack great and runs very well.  I may have him too low after great senior year and all-star performance.

11. Jamesley Jean

Very intriguing prospect that ran a 4.53 at 6-5 225.

12. James Lee

30%

 

He is visiting Florida and Georgia and has been offered by both. He has not talked to Ohio State for awhile but still wants to visit.

13. Sam Baker

Doing a great job of playing it close to the vest but speaks highly of the Buckeyes. A lot of SoCal connections so I think the Buckeyes are a longshot.

14. Joe Cohen

10%

  Up

No visit set yet, but there is still a shot. He passed the look test at the national all-star game.

15. Miguel Scott

   -

He has some great offers and is a super athlete. Could be a nice compliment to Guliford.
