One of the biggest news hits from yesterday was that 5'11 wide receiver Christian Kirk released his top 10, and it was no surprise that Ohio State was included. As you already know, Kirk is an absolute offensive weapon when lined up in the slot position as he's fast enough to burn any defender, but also tough enough to take hits. Landing Kirk would be huge for Urban Meyer, as he would provide a spark on offense as soon as he arrived on campus. The Buckeyes are in great shape as things currently stand, but need to be weary of Oregon, Auburn, and Texas A&M. Being from Arizona, it'll be tough to compete with these powers, but if anyone is up to the task it's Urban Meyer. Expect Ohio State to be in this one all the way to the end.
I want to thank every school for giving me the opportunity to play for their university. Blessed to be at this point pic.twitter.com/zff7pfzc5m— Christian Kirk (@ChristianDavon2) June 3, 2014
Akron's star 2016 prospect Tyrece Speaight made it apparent that he will camp at Ohio State on June 21. Furthermore, he also announced a few other Big Ten schools where he will appear. Speaight is also a dangerous athlete and presents mismatches all over the field while he's on offense. At this moment, he doesn't hold a Buckeye offer, but expect that to change very quickly. A four-star by 247Sports, he's predicted as an 89% crystal ball lock to Ohio State. When he camps in June, it'll be Speaight's first visit to Columbus, as he's already visited Michigan and Purdue.

Offensive line prospect Hunter Littlejohn has also decided that he will attend camp at Ohio State, only his will be this coming Sunday. At 6'4 267 pounds, the Ohio native has room to fill out and already holds a plethora of offers, most notably from Boston College and Illinois. The Buckeyes aren't in a position, like last year, where they need a big-time offensive line haul. They just need the right ones. If Littlejohn comes into camp and shines, an offer could be thrown his way.

Dallas, Texas native A.D. Miller was in Columbus on Tuesday. Miller is a 6'4 wide receiver and would be a huge get for the Buckeyes in every way possible. Ohio State has struggled recruiting tall wide-outs on the outside and Miller could be an answer. Arizona State and Cal have already extended offers to him, and with a strong senior season there's a chance that Ohio State could be placed legitimately in the picture.
