Coming into the day, Ohio State was already scheduled to host an immense amount of talented prospects on Saturday to watch the Buckeyes square off against the Nittany Lions. That list continued to grow throughout the day on Wednesday.
Starting out with the 2014 class. One of the more important visits that will take place on Saturday will come for '14 ILB Raekwon McMillan.

McMillan is widely considered as the most important target for the Buckeyes. The general feel throughout the recruiting world is that Ohio State currently has the best shot to land McMillan with Alabama, Clemson, Florida and Georgia in the picture as well. The Buckeyes will have about 48 hours to increase their chances to land the talented five-star linebacker. McMillan will be joined by his teammate, '17 ATH Richard LeCounte.
Perhaps the biggest addition to the visitor list for Saturday would be '14 JUCO OT Avery Gennesy. The 6-5, 307-pound lineman from East Mississippi C.C. already has an Ohio State offer to his name along with Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas A&M and several others. Gennesy will also be accompanied by a teammate, '14 JUCO safety A.J. Stamps. The 2-star safety currently holds scholarship offers from Kentucky, Mississippi State and Western Kentucky.
The lone negative news that came about yesterday was regarding '14 safety Jamal Adams.
Touched base w/ #ESPN300 DB Jamal Adams (@ThaJudgeKO). Said he won't be at #OhioState for this week's OV. Prior family engagement. #Buckeyes— Damon Sayles (@DamonSayles) October 23, 2013
It is currently unknown if Adams will reschedule his official visit date to Columbus but I never really got the feel that the Buckeyes realistically had a chance to land the Safety from Texas. The Gators look to have the best shot at landing the 4-star Adams. Erick Smith and UCF commit Mike Rogers seem to be the more realistic options to fill the safety spot in the 2014 class.
Another prospect that holds an offer from the Buckeyes announced that he would be in attendance on Saturday as well; '15 RB Bryce Love.

Love received his Buckeye offer exactly one month ago from today. The Buckeyes join 13 others who are currently battling for his services including Clemson, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Love is currently rated as a 4-star prospect and the 262nd ranked player in the country on the 247Composite rankings for the class of 2015.
- '15 OT David Moorman will be visiting the Buckeyes on Saturday.
- 15 4-star OT Hunter Littlejohn wants to visit the Buckeyes on Saturday but is currently on a waiting list. Think this weekend isn't going to be huge for recruiting?
- Ohio State hoops commit Jae'Sean Tate will be making his official visit on Saturday.
