Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 2/26 - Dre'Mont Jones offered

247Sports

Dre'Mont Jones earned an offer from Ohio State on Tuesday, a school he's always admired. Meanwhile, shooting guard Austin Grandstaff is planning on visiting Columbus "as soon as possible."

In-state defensive standout Dre'Mont Jones was offered by Ohio State on Tuesday. This offer is especially important to Jones because of the fact that he's been a lifelong Buckeye fan. From St. Ignatious High School in Cleveland, Jones was a teammate of Kyle Berger, a linebacker that Ohio State was able to grab in the 2014 recruiting class. With Berger already on board, you'd think that would be dividends in landing Jones, but with the Buckeyes being his childhood favorite, the writing could already be on the wall. For those who don't know about Dre'Mont, he's a 6'5 defensive end who also holds offers from Cincinnati, Indiana, and Iowa with more sure to come. As we stand right now, Jones is a 100% Crystal Ball lock to Ohio State and we see no reason why that would change anytime soon. Though it's uncertain if Urban Meyer and company would accept a commitment at this point, there's no question that Ohio State is out in front in the early stages of this one.

Though it's some years ahead, 2016 athlete Dionte Mullins has told reporters that Ohio State and Alabama are pushing for him the hardest at this point in his recruiting process. Hey, it's never too early to get a leg up on recruiting, right? Urban Meyer has hit the state of Florida hard so far for the 2015 class and it looks as if it could be more of the same in 2015, as Mullins hails from Miami. Just a young pup, Mullins already stands at 6-foot and is being regarded one of the best wide receiver prospects in his class.

To the basketball court, 2015 shooting guard Austin Grandstaff has started to pick up big-time interest from Ohio State as of late. Yesterday, Grandstaff's dad spoke out and told SportsNet New York that his son will be making a visit to Columbus "as soon as possible." Grandstaff is slowly becoming one of the most sought after shooters in his class, and his offer list quite impressive. Oklahoma, Arizona, Georgetown, and Iowa State are all pushing hard towards the 6'5 athlete and it's obvious that coach Thad Matta has his work cut out for him. When the Buckeyes are finlly able to get him on campus, it'll be officially "game on" for Ohio State.
