On Monday night, Land-Grant Holy Land's Adam Waters spoke with '15 4-star CB/ATH Ashton White about his plans for the highly anticipated matchup of Ohio State and Wisconsin this coming Saturday night. Contrary to other published reports, White said that he's not sure if he's going to be able to make the trip, and will not find out whether he's going or not until Wednesday or Thursday. Ohio State is considered the favorite to land White, who Adam also interviewed in late August, and the 247 Crystal Ball predictions have all picked Ohio State to this point. We'll be to keep you updated with the latest on White's status.
Speaking of visits this weekend, you can add '15 DT Brandon Tiassum to the already large list of visitors for the Wisconsin game, per FOX Sports' Anna Hickey:
15' Columbus (OH) Walnut Ridge LB Anthony McKee will be at the Wisconsin game Saturday. He has been talking to Fickell "a lot".— Miles Joseph (@MilesLGHL) September 23, 2013
'15 LB Anthony McKee told new LGHL staff member Miles Joesph that he will be attending the Wisconsin game on Saturday, as he's continued to keep in contact with the coaching staff.
Targets of the Buckeyes aren't the only ones visiting Columbus this weekend; current Ohio State basketball commit SF Keita Bates-Diop is taking his official visit for the tilt against the Badgers.
'14 3-star TE Deandre Goolsby is taking an official visit this Saturday as well. The 6'4", 225-pound Goolsby caught 42 passes in the 2011 season for 605 yards and 11 touchdowns. He holds offers from top programs such as Arkansas, Florida, Kansas State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon and many more.
2015 4-star ATH Nyheim Hines tells our @AWaters_LGHL if Ohio State offers, they’ll vault into his Top 5. Loves OSU, Coach Meyer.— LGHL Recruiting (@LGHLRecruiting) September 24, 2013
'15 4-star ATH Nyheim Hines also spoke to Adam Waters last night, and told LGHL that if the Buckeyes were to offer, they would shoot into his top five teams. Hines also added that he loves Ohio State and the kind of coach Urban Meyer is. While it's still early in the process, I think it's a safe bet that Hines will receive his in due time, if he continues to impress on the field and in the offseason.
Finally, '14 Ohio State commit K Sean Nuernberger received his official Offense-Defense All-American game invite, which he shared via Twitter with the Buckeye faithful:
