Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets 10/2 - Ohio State in top three for 2015 five-star

The Buckeyes are in a battle for 2015 cornerback Kevin Toliver II. Though, he's committed to LSU, do the Buckeyes have a realistic shot at the five-star? Three Ohio State basketball commits will compete against the best at a basketball invitational in July, see who they are.

SB Nation


Ohio State is smack down in the middle of a fight for 2015 cornerback, and LSU commit, Kevin Toliver II. A five-star prospect, Toliver also has the size to transition into a safety at the next level if he continues to get bigger. Listed at 6'2" 180 pounds, Toliver gave his commitment to the Tigers last year, but the Buckeyes as well as the Florida Gators are inching up on his list. Toliver is a Florida native and it'll take a lot for coach Urban Meyer to pull a kid from a state he once owned. Don't count him out though. If a visit to Columbus does indeed happen, like Toliver states that it will, Ohio State will become a major player—moreso than they already are, currently sitting in his top three. A player like Kevin Toliver doesn't come around too often and obviously this would be a huge get, though we are still countless days away between now and February 2015.

Here's some film:

After a huge visit list for the Wisconsin game, more trips are already being planned. 2015 Ohio linebacker Reagan Williams will be in Columbus on the October 19th weekend. An early four-star linebacker, Williams possesses elite size at 6'3" 232 pounds. He currently holds two offers but look for that list to continue to grow. With four Big Ten visits lined up this month, it's safe to say that Reagan Williams won't be under the radar for that much longer. A strong, physical linebacker, Williams has great instincts and will blow up anything that comes his way. The Jackson High School standout recorded 94 tackles as a sophomore last season.

To basketball, 2014 Buckeye commits Dave Bell and Keita Bates-Diop will participate in the Good Samaritan Flyin' to the Hoop Basketball Invitational in January during Martin Luther King Jr. weekend. 2015 commit AJ Harris is also expected to be there. This prestigious event gives athletes a chance to go against some of the best competition in the country in front of thousands of fans. The invitational will be broken down into 22 teams and should be yet another successful turnout in Dayton, Ohio.

Meanwhile on the hardwood, 2016 target Willie Jackson put on a show at the Hidden Gems Fall Showcase over the weekend. Our Zach Fleer was all over it and has you covered.
