Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 12/4

Former USC commit Max Redfield could be a fallback plan for Ohio State.

Urban Meyer and the rest of the Ohio State coaching staff have begun their off-season recruiting early, due to the Buckeyes being ineligible for any type of bowl game. To help you keep up with all of the action, we've got you well-covered with the latest news and updates on Ohio State recruiting.

The Ohio State coaching staff didn't waste any time in between the weekend and the start of this week, as they continue to work at a frantic pace. They have recently let it be known that they are taking a good look at class of 2013 safety Max Redfield. Redfield, a former USC commitment, decommitted from the Trojans on November 4th. Soon after, Redfield was back hearing from suitors, with the likes of Notre Dame, Oregon and USC all quick to reach out.

As of Monday, the 4-star recruit has Notre Dame and USC at the top of his list. Redfield currently holds offers from Notre Dame, USC, Oregon, LSU, Nebraska, Vanderbilt, and a number of others. We would expect to see an Ohio State offer go out to Redfield if the Vonn Bell situation doesn't progress any further than where they stand now.

Staying on the topic of offering, Coach Meyer offered two more athletes, this time going to a pair of 2014 recruits. '14 wide receiver Jalen Brown and '14 offensive guard Natrell Curtis are teammates at Phoenix Mountain Pointe High School in Arizona. The staff must have found something they liked in 'Zona, because just last week the Buckeyes offered '13 offensive tackle Kenny Lacy, who attends the school as well.

Brown and Curtis both are 4-star recruits and have started to gain traction in the recruiting circuit. Brown was also recently named state of Arizona Gatorade player of the year. If you get a chance to check out his highlight film, we highly recommend it.

Class of 2015 is pretty far off in the distance as of right now, but it won't be long until it's time to start learning some names. One to pay some attention to is class of '15 running back Michael Weber. Weber stands 5'10, 190-pounds and hails from Detroit, Michigan. On November 24th, Weber rushed 20 times for 186 yards in a 36-21 victory over Detroit Catholic Central in the state championship game. That's big-time for a sophomore, especially with two more years to develop and grow at his position.

Other news: Head coach Urban Meyer visited with 2013 defensive lineman commit Billy Price as an in-home visit, just to reinforce that the Buckeyes still hold the top spot for the lineman. You can never be too safe this time of year.
