Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 4/10 - Latest on Corbin Daly, Drake Harris,Tony Brown

'14 punter Corbin Daly had only good things to say about his visit to Ohio State

The Buckeyes are still getting positive reviews across the board of recruits in attendance over the weekend, and the coaching staff is loving the feedback from some of the top players in the country.

It's been nothing but good news on the recruiting front as of late, what with the recent commitment given to Ohio State by '14 LB Kyle Berger and the constant flow of quotes from recruits that have stated the impressive environment in Columbus and around the Buckeye football program.

One of the recruits in attendance this past weekend was '14 P Corbin Daly. Daly doesn't currently hold an offer from Ohio State (most punters aren't really offered until later down the line anyway). In 2012, Daly averaged 47 yards per punt, an impressive feat. Our own Charles Doss caught up with Daly to get a couple thoughts from him and when asked about Ohio State and his visit, here's what Daly had to say:

"The visit went really well. I got to tour and see the football facility, talk to the coaching staff, meet some of the players and talked with them as well. I also took some time with coach Coombs, coach Meyer, and coach (Everett) Withers. OSU is high on my list"

'14 RB Qadree Ollison, a 3-star from Buffalo, NY, was just offered by Rutgers over the weekend. He's also got designs on visiting Ohio State this summer however, as the offer holder from Iowa, Nevada, and the hometown Buffalo Bulls. Wilson will camp in Columbus over the summer and should give the staff a better idea whether or not he's offer material. Alabama's been barking around the Canisius High tailback of late as well. In the 2012 season, Ollison rushed for 1,865 yards and 26 touchdowns on the ground. He helped lead his team to an 11-0 record and broke the school's records for both rushing yards and touchdowns in a season.

'14 S/WR Lonnie Johnson told reporters that he will be attending Ohio State's spring game this Saturday after missing this most recent visit opportunity. Johnson is known at this point for having issues in the classroom when it comes to grades, and most Buckeye fans aren't sure what the status is with Johnson and the Buckeyes' coaching staff. Some swear that Johnson has a commitable offer, while others are suggesting that the staff is waiting him out. Either way, the interest is mutual, so Johnson is a prospect to keep alert on.

Another recruit from the state of Michigan is taking a trip to Ohio State Friday. '14 WR Drake Harris, a top prospect from Michigan is set to visit Ohio State. Harris confirmed that his visit to Columbus remains on his schedule, after opening his recruitment back up in January. The 6'4", 180-pound Harris led his team to a state championship and a final record of 13-1 during his junior season. He caught 91 passes for 2,016 yards and 23 touchdowns. His 2,016 yards broke the all-time state record. As of now, Harris is hearing the most from Ohio State and Michigan State, two teams that have come down to the wire on a couple of recent recruits. Harris is the country's No. 3 wide receiver and the No. 2 prospect in Michigan in the 247Sports rankings.

Ohio State recently made another top five list, this time coming from '14 CB Tony Brown. Brown is a true star at the corner position, and is widely considered as one of the top 10-15 players in the entire country. Brown's list consisted of: LSU, Alabama, Ohio State, Texas and Texas A&M. While he's most likely leaning towards becoming a Tiger (his sister just committed to LSU) the 6'0", 185-pound corner still listed Ohio State, which may be good enough for coach Meyer and his staff to continue pursuing the athlete from Texas. In 2011, Brown had 96 tackles, three interceptions, 16 pass breakups and one forced fumble. His prowess as a defender is well-known, which makes him a nightmare for offensive coordinators.

Finally, have no fear about the rumors shooting around about '14 CB commit Damon Webb. Webb himself cleared everything up yesterday on Twitter, acknowledging that people were talking about the possibilities of Webb visiting Notre Dame. Apparently, the rumor spawned somewhere because of Webb's planned 7-on-7 tournament games that are near South Bend. Only time will tell if Webb is really having second thoughts (doubtful) or if this is all just more Buckeye paranoia.
