Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 10/1 - Latest on Raekwon McMillan, more visit reactions

The Buckeye are coming off of hosting their biggest crowd of recruits at the 'Shoe when they beat the Wisconsin Badgers and look to keep that momentum to land some commitments from top prospects across the country.

Perhaps the biggest news that doesn't concern Ohio State (at least, not directly) is how '14 LB Raekwon McMillan felt about his visit to Georgia on Saturday. The consensus 5-star linebacker has been courted by the most prestigious of schools, including the Buckeyes themselves. McMillan holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Michigan State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oregon, South Carolina and the list goes on and on. In fact, McMillan holds offers from just about every top team in the country, and it's easy to see why schools are after his talents so hard.

Alabama, Ohio State, and Clemson have been neck and neck through the later stages of his recruitment processes, but you might just see Georgia creeping up to make it a four-team race before long. Georgia is McMillan's home state, and Raekwon took one of his official visits to Sanford Stadium this past weekend over the Ohio State-Wisconsin game. Georgia hosted LSU, who was ranked in the top ten. McMillan clearly came away impressed:

"My trip to Georgia was a great visit," McMillan told the AJC on Monday night. "I got there early Saturday morning and left there late on Sunday night. Georgia really gave me a good reason to stay in-state, and really helped their chances with me going to Georgia."

McMillan also said in the article that his visit would be a "10" on a scale of 1-10, and mentioned that this visit puts Ohio State, Clemson, and Georgia in his top three. Alabama appears to have dropped out for now, but he still is planning on taking an official visit on November 8th. McMillan also has official visits in place for Clemson (October 18th), Ohio State (October 26th), and Florida (November 29th). Asked about the one way Georgia can remain in McMillan's top three? "Keep winning".

Ohio State commit '14 ATH/RB Noah Brown doesn't seem to be having any second thoughts about becoming a Buckeye. Brown committed to the Buckeyes on September 9th, and hasn't wavered since.

Basketball recruiting got some love from the Buckeye's huge conference game against the Badgers, hosting a couple of prospects of their own. One of those was big-time '14 C Elbert Robinson. Robinson witnessed Ohio State taking care of business on the football field and clearly enjoyed himself in Columbus this past weekend. Robinson stands 7'0", 322-pounds and is rated as a 4-star in the 247Composite and holds offers from Kansas, Louisville, LSU, Nebraska, Georgetown, and Texas A&M, among other top programs.
