Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 3/13 - One new offer, Buckeyes top several lists

'14 5-star OL Damian Prince (right) says the Buckeyes are one of the teams recruiting him the hardest.

The coaching staff continues their assault on the class of 2014, offering a safety that was in Columbus last year for Friday Night Lights and the Buckeyes also claim their stake at making the cut at the top of recruits' lists.

On Monday, we mentioned that the Buckeyes had offered '15 QB Kyle Murray, which was interesting because of Murray being the second quarterback to receive an offer in the class of 2015. The 5'11", 170-pound sophomore received that offer on Friday, but just recently delved a little deeper into where the Buckeyes currently stood when matched up against other schools. It appears as of now, if Murray were to make a top five, the following teams would be included: Clemson, Florida, Ohio State, Oregon and Texas A&M. The Aggies are the clear-cut favorite, being that Murray lives in the state of Texas.

'14 DL Anthony Moten holds over 20 offers from top schools across the nation, and plans on having a top five in the spring. Ohio State has already offered the 4-star defensive tackle, but Moten has said South Carolina is recruiting him the hardest, with Alabama & Ohio State close behind. During the spring, Moten plans on attending spring games at Florida, Miami and possibly, South Carolina. I think it might be a stretch to be able to land Moten, as he seems pretty happy with the SEC love.

Just yesterday, Ohio State sent out another offer. This time, '14 ATH/S C.J. Reavis was the recipient. Reavis attended Friday Night Lights late last July, and has been in constant contact with the Buckeyes ever since then. Now that he has received an offer, perhaps the 4-star safety can take a harder look at what Ohio State has to offer him. Checking in at 6'2", 200-pounds and being clocked at a 4.50 4-yard dash, Reavis had 86 tackles two seasons ago, as a freshman. Virginia Tech is the favorite for now, and coming from the state of Virginia himself, it might be a hard task for coach Meyer to pull Reavis out of the home state.

A name you might not have heard from in a while, but should certainly keep tabs on in the future is '14 DL/OL Sam Mustipher, from the state of Maryland. Mustipher holds an offer from Ohio State already, and was actually on an unofficial visit for The Game last November. Our very own Zach Clark spoke with Mustipher in January to pick his brain about the Buckeyes. Now, Mustipher has set another visiting date, scheduled for April 6th. Mustipher has only said good things about Ohio State and the coaching staff, and things only look good here for the Buckeyes.

Finally, '14 OL Damian Prince has drawn a lot of attention and offers early on from the best teams in the country, including Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State, Michigan, South Carolina and many more. The 5-star tackle is keeping busy, and has said before that the three teams recruiting him the hardest are Florida State, Ohio State and Rutgers. Another case of the coaching staff leaving an impression on a recruit seems to be the case here, as Prince has only said good things about coach Meyer and offensive line coach Ed Warinner.

Prince will probably try to visit schools that interest him in the summer, but we've been hearing that his busy schedule may play a big role in deciding which schools he'll take a look at. Also of note, is that Prince is already set to play in the 2014 Under Armour All-America game, proving that his recorded stat of 35 pancake blocks two years ago is no joke. The 6'6", 300-pound giant also has been clocked in the 40-yard dash at 5.00.
