Get caught up with the latest Ohio State recruiting news from over the weekend.

Just like almost every weekend, the Ohio State football program had a group of recruits on campus. A few of the talented prospects who made it to Columbus over the weekend, were 2015 offensive lineman Andre James, and 2016 recruits, quarterback Dwayne Haskins, and running back George Hill.

Hill's visit turned into a big one. While on campus, mixing it up with the coaching staff on Saturday, The 6'0 185 pound, junior from Hubbard became Urban Meyer and crew's first verbal commitment of 2016, after having the Buckeyes in front since receiving an offer earlier this spring.

Hill, who is more of a speedster than a bruiser, has the ability to break it to the house every time the ball is in his hands, and shouldn't have a problem finding early playing time in a ton of different ways when he reaches Columbus.

Playing in the same backfield as 2015 OSU target Larry Scott, George rushed for well over 1,000 yards, and scored 15 touchdowns to help Hubbard to a 12-1 record.
