Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 4/23 - Ohio State visits five-star Demetris Robertson

Student Sports

Ohio State was in to see five-star athlete Demetris Robertson as well as fellow 2016 prospect Rashan Gray. Do the Buckeyes have a real shot to land these two super-sophomores?

Starting things off today with some interesting news, current football commit Eric Glover-Williams was involved in an altercation at his school which resulted in a suspension for the Canton McKinley star. EGW, is one of two commits for Ohio State's 2015 class and there's a chance that number could drop to one, depending on how the Ohio State's coaching staff takes the news.

It's not wise to worry about recruiting in the month of April, but there's no doubt that Buckeye Nation would sleep a bit better at night having a handful of commits locked up in this class

Though no decision has been communicated from the coaching staff to Glover-Williams, it doesn't look good for him, especially when you take into account how Urban Meyer has handled these types of incidents in the past. For the full update on this situation, click here.

To the 2016 class, Luke Fickell spent Tuesday in Savannah, Georgia visiting with big-time athlete Demetris Robertson. An early five-star, Robertson holds 16 offers, most notably from Ohio State, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida. Like we've seen thus far in the 2015 class, the Buckeyes seem to be making more of an effort to land the southern kids and being on Robertson this early shows that it could be more of the same in 2016. Here's the film on the 6'1 prospect.

Fellow 2016 prospect Rashan Gary has taken a liking to the recent hire of coach Larry Johnson and says he is building a strong relationship with Ohio State's new defensive line coach.

Johnson has strong ties to the state of New Jersey, where Gary is from, as his Penn State days required strong recruiting efforts on the east coast. Gary isn't your ordinary looking sophomore, checking in at 6'4 285 pounds.

He is a five-star player in the newly released 247Sports rankings for the 2016 class and there's no doubt it'll be a dog fight over the next couple of years to land the stud defensive tackle.

Turning the clocks forward even more, Ohio State was also in to see 2017 prospect Richard LeCounte on Tuesday. From Liberty County High School, LeCounte picked up a Buckeye offer all the way back in September and visited Columbus on April 7th. The interest is obviously there and it's worth keep an eye on moving forward through the next couple of years.
