Ohio State's top target in the class of 2014 has arguably been '14 5-star LB Raekwon McMillan. McMillan has been at the top of the Buckeyes board since Urban Meyer took over as head coach. The Georgia-native stands at 6'2, 242-pound inside linebacker has been clocked at a 4.79 in the 40-yard dash and is the 17th-ranked prospect overall in the class of 2014. Rated as a 5-star, McMillan is the top inside linebacker in the country, and the second best prospect in the state of Georgia.

With the possibility of Ryan Shazier heading to the NFL after this season, the Buckeyes depth at linebacker is extremely concerning, and was one of the top priorities in the '14 recruiting class. Ohio State has already landed Dante Booker Jr. and Kyle Berger, but McMillan is a must-have at this point for the Buckeyes. McMillan has been rumored to want playing time wherever he ends up, so Ohio State would be a perfect spot for him to get immediate playing time. We'll find out soon enough where McMillan lands, as you see above he announced that he will be making his decision on December 16th.

In case you might have missed it, '14 JUCO OT Chad Mavety got an updated background for his Twitter account. The background features logos from Florida State on the left and Ohio State on the right. Mavety has narrowed down his favorites between the Seminoles and the Buckeyes.

The 6'6, 180-pound Bates-Diop is a small forward rated as a 4-star recruit for Thad Matta and the basketball Buckeyes, and signed his letter of intent on November 13th.
