Ohio State recruiting: Wisconsin visitor list

The 'Shoe will be rocking Saturday night with plenty of high profile recruits in attendance. - USA TODAY Sports

See which high profile recruiting targets will be making the trip to Columbus for the big Ohio State-Wisconsin showdown.

One of the biggest recruiting weekends of 2013 for Ohio State is upon us. In addition to the Buckeyes' huge game against #23 Wisconsin, they'll also be playing host to some of the top talent nationwide for both the gridiron and the hardwood.

Mark Pantoni and his basketball counterpart Christopher Spartz will be working overtime this weekend as the Buckeyes welcome at least three five stars, a minimum of 35 4-stars, and numerous other under the radar prospects who may wind up Buckeyes yet.

Perhaps the biggest name on commitment watch is versatile 3-star tight end Mike Gesicki. Though Gesicki has been insistent that he has no plans to commit during this weekend and instead looks to make his pledge most likely sometime next month, many feel the somewhat late visit cancellation of fellow high profile tight end prospect Tyler Luatua suggest the writing is on the wall.

Without further adieu, below is Land-Grant Holy Land's aggregated list of visits ranging from the informal to official visits. Caveat emptor: This list is extremely fluid and prone to turn on a dime. Information below should not necessarily be considered an official confirmation or report, though is verified to the best of our abilities. We'll update it as the weekend goes on.
