Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 12/3 - Latest on Marshon Lattimore, new Rivals rankings

The Glenville pipeline has the next three stars in Erick Smith, Marcelys Jones, and Marshon Lattimore.

Multiple Ohio State commitments and recruiting targets landed themselves on All-Ohio teams, as well as being honored individually.


On Monday night, the 2013 Division I All-Ohio football team and All-Ohio Division II football honorees were announced by the Associated Press. Those lists included a handful of future Ohio State players, and a couple of players that have been said to be leaning towards the Buckeyes in their recruitment.

Among the Division I players that are committed to Ohio State on the list for AP's All-Ohio first team are '14 OT Kyle Trout, '14 ATH/S Sam Hubbard. Making second team was Ohio State commit '15 CB/RB Eric Glover-Williams.

For Division II, Ohio State players of interest that made the first team include Buckeye commit '14 OG Marcelys Jones and target '14 CB Marshon Lattimore. Making third team, is Glenville teammate and Ohio State target '14 S Erick Smith at defensive back. Lattimore, though, also received a high honor in being named Defensive Player of the Year:

Lattimore's play on both sides of the ball is a key reason why the Tarblooders are headed to the Division II state title game. Not only does he lead his team in rushing, but he also is Glenville's leading receiver with 36 receptions for 828 yards and 15 touchdowns. He is also among six finalists for the U.S. Army player of the year award. He is undecided about what college he wants to play for.

'15 OT Sterling Jenkins was on hand Saturday to see the 110th edition of The Game, but was on an unofficial visit to Michigan at the time. Jenkins was no doubt given quite a show by both teams, who he's had among his top schools for quite a while. While Jenkins is predicted to end up with the Wolverines (91% of the 247 Crystal Ball picks are in favor of the Maize and Blue).

Now the Buckeyes are still showing interest, as he announced to Twitter that the Buckeyes would be visiting his school sometime this week. We'll keep you up to date on the latest with Jenkins' recruitment.

New Rivals rankings have been released, and many of Ohio State's commits were on the list. '14 CB Damon Webb was the highest ranked Buckeye at 36th, with '14 OT Demetrius Knox coming in at 39th.
