Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 12/4 - Parris Campbell and Dante Booker receive top accolades

Parris Campbell and Dante Booker received top accolades on Tuesday, being named first team all-Ohio for Division III. Meanwhile, Scott Patchan's recruitment continues to blow up and it seems as if Ohio State is separating themselves from the rest of the Big Ten in the recruiting rat race.

State-secrets_medium2015 Ohio State prospect Scott Patchan, who earned an offer on November 7th, is starting to see his recruitment blow up. A 6'5 defensive end, Patchan is a dominant pass rusher with great speed off of the line, with a 4.53 recorded 40 time. The Miami Hurricanes were in to see the Florida native yesterday and that list should continue to grow in the coming months. Holding offers from Miami and Ohio State, obviously, the 230 pound athlete has also earned offers from Notre Dame and Tennessee. Urban Meyer has brought in elite talent on the defensive line since taking this job and there's no reason why Patchan can't become another dominant player to add to the list.

In case you missed it yesterday, a handful of 2014 Ohio State commits received bump in a new addition of Rivals rankings. In addition, as we examine the list a bit closer, the Buckeyes have nine commits in the Rivals250, which leads he Big Ten by a pretty solid margin. As Buckeye Nation has seen, this Ohio State staff recruits like no other, relentless every single day. This number is certain to grow as the Bucks are set up to have a great finish when the calendar turns.

The prolific Akron duo of Parris Campbell and Dante Booker were both named to the AP Division III First Team All-Ohio. Adding to that, Booker was named co-defensive player of the year. The Fighting Irish have rolled through everyone on their schedule up to this point and will look to capture their second straight state title on Thursday night against Trotwood-Madison.

If you haven't seen it yet, there is an unbelievably awesome, yes that legit, picture of Damon Webb going around the social media sites.

Webb is in line to add to the growing list of elite defensive backs to put on a Buckeye uniform and his opportunity is only a few months away. With his high school season over, the only focus is getting ready for college football and getting in shape to challenge for a starting spot next season.
