The stage has been set for the Buckeyes, as they enjoy this crucial week off to recover from injuries and heal some hard-earned bruises. Coming out undefeated through the majority of their Big Ten schedule, Ohio State has proven time and again that they are shooting for the stars as they approach these final two performances.
Head coach Urban Meyer is focusing his attention to the football team, but with the help from key members of his staff, Meyer is also able to keep an eye out for the top recruits in the country. One month closer to National Signing Day, Ohio State's 2013 recruiting class is looking for a strong finish to the year. Despite all the efforts going into the football team's success, coach Meyer still knows the importance of recruiting ahead and has spent much of the week taking visits to recruits.
During this week, Meyer visited with a number of recruits: '13 DB Christopher Worley, '14 OL Marcelys Jones, '14 LB Dante Booker, '14 ATH Marshon Lattimore, OL/DL Donovan Munger and '13 WR Shelton Gibson. Offensive coordinator Tim Hinton also joined the mix when he visited '15 Damien Harris today, extending an offer to him as well.

It's good to see the athletes that are currently or going to be playing for Ohio State in the future are not just one-sport stars.
'13 OL Dorian Johnson update: Dorian has confirmed with the media that his official visit to Pitt will be on November 17 and then two visits to Columbus for "The Game" along with an official visit on December 7th. He plans to decide by mid-December, which may show a tiny indication of how he regards Ohio State.
Of course, we can't get too excited. That would be unfair to everyone playing the recruiting game:

Nicholas Bosa just might be better than big brother and Ohio State commit Joey Bosa. The younger of the two is only a freshman, but has already received heaps of praise from the coaching staff and just about anyone else who has seen him play on Friday nights this fall.
In fact, Bosa's head coach thinks he has a chance to go down as the best player to ever come through the high school itself. He added that Joey is a phenomenal talent but that Nicholas is more athletic and instinctive and is another monster in the weight room. The Buckeyes will be sure to try and lock down Joey's younger brother in the future.
