We are about two weeks away from learning what program '14 LB Raekwon McMillan will choose. As of today, it is an Ohio State, Clemson and Alabama battle for the standout linebacker from Georgia. Last night, Clemson Tiger Head Coach Dabo Swinney was in the peach state to have an in-home visit with the 5-star talent.

A possible future teammate of McMillan's won the "Mr. Football" award yesterday in the state of Ohio. Future Buckeye Dante Booker was recognized as the High School football player in the state after recording 109 tackles and two interceptions. His Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary Fighting Irish will take on Trotwood Madison later tonight for the division III state championship game. According to cleveland.com, Booker is the first defensive player to win the award since former Ohio State linebacker Andy Katzenmoyer won it in '95.

Head Coach Thad Matta and the basketball Buckeyes sent out an offer to '15 PF Noah Dickerson on Tuesday. Dickerson took it to Twitter yesterday that he received the offer, which now makes 12 for the 4-star forward from Georgia. Ohio State will have to battle with Georgetown, Tennessee, Virginia and more to land Dickerson.

'14 DE Malik McDowell of Southfield High School in Michigan named his top 7 last night and the Buckeyes made the list. Personally, it does not seem as if the Buckeyes have a great shot to land the 6'7", 290-pound McDowell but they are listed in his top 7 and as we know, anything can happen. According to his 247Sports Crystal Ball, Michigan seems to be the favorite to land the 4-star DE.

Bad news for the Buckeyes, which was also expected, as '14 WR Josh Malone committed to Tennessee yesterday. Malone visited Columbus on October 26th to watch Ohio State beat the Nittany Lions 63-14. The Buckeyes, who seem to want another receiver in this class, will next learn the fate of '14 WR Johnnie Dixon. Dixon will make his decision in three days.
