Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 5/21 - More new OSU offers

Student Sports

The Ohio State coaching staff hit the trail hard again on Tuesday, sending out three new offers. See who those offers went to and if the Buckeyes have a legitimate chance at landing any of them.

Kicking things off today, Ohio State sent out an offer to Darrell Taylor, a 2015 defensive end from Virginia. A 247sports' four-star prospect, Taylor has genuine interest in the Buckeyes as his lead recruiter thus far in this process has been Zach Smith. Standing at 6'4, Taylor is on the lighter side for a prototypical d-end, weighing 220 pounds, but has blazing 4.6 speed coming off the edge. By adding more weight and keeping his speed, there's no reason why he couldn't develop into one of the top players at his position in the entire country. Some of the other top schools for Taylor include Virginia Tech, Iowa, and Virginia. With this offer just being sent on yesterday, we'll have to wait and see if he sets up a visit which would then mean it's game-on. Here's the film if you haven't seen it already.

As you remember, Cass-Tech wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones was offered by the Buckeyes over the weekend. The offer certainly set off a spark in his world. Though he's just a freshman, Ohio State seems to have left an early impression on what will be one of the best prospects in the state of Michigan by the time his senior season rolls around.

It seems as if Ohio State has offered more current freshmen this year than any year before and that trend continued yesterday when Jacoby Stevens, an athlete from Tennessee, picked up an offer of his own. Stevens, who already stands at 6'2, plays wide receiver as well as safety. Though he has just one season of high school ball under his belt, Stevens already holds offers from LSU and Auburn.

Josh Imatorbhebhe, who is on the rise as one of the top players in the class of 2016, earned a Buckeye offer on Tuesday. Josh, who hails from Missouri, currently holds nine offers. A couple notable others have come from Michigan, Michigan State, and Nebraska. Imatorbhebhe presents a mis-match for most corners as he checks in at 6'2, 202 pounds. He's able to position his body well as the ball is in the air. Check out his sophomore highlights here.

QUICK HITS:
