I will keep this post updated as visitor reaction from this weekend's victory over San Diego State pours in. I'll have more in depth information later this week.

2014 visitors:

OT Kyle Trout, Lancaster (OH):

Trout, who many consider the leader of the 2014 class made his first of what should be many trips to Columbus to take in a Buckeye game. Here's what he had to say about his experience.

Visit: "I hung out with Kyle Berger and watched the game. That's pretty much all I did." Thoughts on game: "It was really cool," he said. "The offensive line was moving people and controlling the game."

2015 visitors:

WR Charlie Fessler, Ernie (PA) Cathedral Prep: 

The 6-foot-3-inch wide receiver made his first trip to Columbus today.

There will be a couple of big name prospects on hand to watch the Buckeyes take on San Diego State this Saturday at 3:30.

2014 visitors:

ATH Noah Brown, Sparta (NJ) Pope John XXIII: The biggest visitor for this weekend if definitely Noah Brown, who could very well be the next member of Ohio State's 2013 recruiting class. The staff will try to close the deal for the star athlete this weekend. He will probably be a receiver if he decides to play for the Buckeyes.

Readers:

I'm not sure how many of you remember the blog I did with Derek before joining Eleven Warriors, but it's about to return.

I think I'm going to take a little bit of time off, but I will be using this blog once again for Ohio State recruiting updates.

I'm interested to see how things work out while I work by myself for the time being.

Welcome new readers and welcome back to old readers! I look forward to using this blog once again, at least for the time being.

Readers,

We would both like to thank you all for reading our work the past couple of months. Neither of us thought this blog/site would grow at such a rapid rate. We are both excited to announce we will be joining the recruiting team at 11 Warriors effective immediately. Both of us are extremely excited for this new opportunity, and hope you will read our work over at 11W. We plan on keeping this site up in case anyone wants to check out some of our old updates.

With it looking more, and more like the Buckeyes will only take one quarterback in the 2013 class, Witchita Falls (TX) signal-caller, J.T. Barrett, it's time to turn our attention to potential 2014 targets. One of the top quarterback targets for the class of 2014 is Burke (VA) Lake Braddock Secondary high school star, Caleb Henderson. Henderson threw for 2,700 yards, threw 27 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions his sophomore year, while rushing for 600 yards.

The Buckeyes are still looking at multiple defenders that can play all over the field in the 2013 class. A couple of the bigger names are guys like Lewis Neal, Tyquan Lewis, Marcus Ball, and Darron Lee. One name Buckeye fans need to keep an eye on is Towson (MD) Calvert Hall, athlete Delando Johnson, who camped at Ohio State June 10th. Johnson is a name that has flown under the recruiting radar, and was recently rated a 4 star prospect by 24/7 Sports.

With Derrick Green and Taquan Mizzell the only realistic targets left at the running back position in the 2013 class, it's time to take a look ahead to potential targets in the 2014 class. One potential target in the class is Chicago (IL) De La Salle running back, Mikale Wilbon. Wilbon is teammates with 2014 offensive tackle, Jamarco Jones, who the Buckeyes have already offered.

With the Buckeyes losing out on many of their top 2013 offensive line targets, look for it to be the priority of the 2014 class. One of the top targets in 2014 is Chicago (IL) De La Salle offensive tackle, Jamarco Jones, who recently camped, and received an offer from the Buckeyes. The early offer the Buckeyes came in with definitely puts them firmly in the mix for Jamarco's services.

Last Sunday I attended the Ohio State one day senior advanced camp.  I was unable to stay for the duration because of a personal matter but I was able to see a good portion of the camp.  Lots of studs were in attendance which included the likes of Tyquan Lewis, Vonn Bell, Darron Lee, Caleb Day, Christian Morris, Lovell Peterson, Kyle Meadows, and others.

Tyquan Lewis - Lewis definitely looked the part.  A very physically imposing player that also had the speed to go along with his size.

A Buckeye linebacker class that once had two committed linebackers, currently sits at zero due to two de-commits. Many of the players the Buckeyes have offered have went elsewhere, or are leaning elsewhere. This has lead to many new names popping up on the Buckeyes' recruiting radar. One new name fans need to keep an eye on is Chicago (IL) Simeon linebacker, Reggie Spearman. Spearman has yet to receive an offer from the Buckeyes, but an offer could be forthcoming.
