Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 3/13 - Kahlil McKenzie offered, Kevin Toliver reiterates visit plans

Student Sports

The Ohio State coaching staff sends out one new offer. Plus, a 5-star CB says again he plans to take an official visit to Columbus and much more.

Wednesday may have seemed like a slow day in the world of Ohio State recruiting but we have many things to talk about.

The Buckeyes sent out an offer on Wednesday to '15 DT Kahlil McKenzie from De La Salle High School in California. McKenzie is no stranger to big-time scholarship offers as he already has received them from Florida, Miami (FL), Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee, UCLA and many others. The 4-star lineman comes in as the 65th ranked player in the country, 11th at his position and 9th in the state of California.

The other big news yesterday was '15 5-star CB Kevin Toliver II reiterated that he would take an official visit to Columbus. The LSU Tiger commit is teammates at Trinity Christian Academy in Florida with current Ohio State commit Ben Edwards and another big-time Buckeye target; '15 LB Jeffery Holland. In a perfect world, Urban Meyer and Ohio State would like to reel in the three talented teammates but will have to battle with many top-tier programs across the country. Toliver is the second ranked player in the whole 2015 class, as well as 1st at CB and in the Sunshine State.

'16 OT Sean Foster from Carmel Catholic High School in Indiana will be visiting the Buckeyes on March 22nd. Foster currently holds offers from California, Indiana and Nebraska and is also receiving interest from many other BCS programs. Land Grant Holy-Land's own Charles Doss briefly spoke with Foster about his upcoming visit:

I am looking forward to meeting all the coaches and the team and really build a relationship with the team. I have been in touch with Coach Warinner. He is very excited to get me up on campus.

'15 CB P.J. Mbanasor, whom the Buckeyes offered last week, decommitted from the Horned Frogs of TCU yesterday. If you recall, Mbanasor told Rivals' Marc Givler when he received the offer from the Buckeyes, that he wants to visit Columbus. It is definitely a good sign for the Buckeyes and every other program pursuing the 4-star prospect that he opened his recruitment back up.

Lastly, huge Ohio State target and '15 LB Sh'mar Kilby Lane committed to play in the historic Army All-American game. Kilby Lane is predicted by many recruiting analyst across the country to wind up in Scarlet and Gray for his college career. The 4-star OLB from Flroida is expected to visit the Buckeyes on April 12th to watch the spring game.
