A weekend that was headlined by the Buckeyes offering two class of 2015 prospects also brought news of which recruits were getting ready to host some of the Ohio State coaching staff.

It was a fairly quiet weekend on the recruiting front, and has been a little over a week since the Buckeyes nabbed their latest commitment in the class of 2014. Even so, the staff has been tirelessness working to make sure head coach Urban Meyer is pleased where Ohio State stands in the recruiting world. Two prospects, '15 ATH/RB Chris Warren and '15 WR Demarkus Lodge have already caught the eye of the Buckeyes' recruiting staff and both received offers during this past weekend.


Warren checks in at 6'2", 220-pounds and runs an eye-popping 4.47 40-yard dash. That's an incredible time for anyone, let alone someone weighing 220 pounds. He currently holds offers from Baylor, Ohio State, Texas and Texas Tech but is hearing from a few other schools early in the process. In 2012, Warren rushed for 1,059 yards on 174 carries for 13 touchdowns. He also contributed in the passing attack with 10 receptions for 100 yards and two receiving touchdowns.

Lodge, a 6'1", 175-pound receiver can run the 40-yard dash in 4.69, but still has time to improve his speed. In 2012, Lodge only caught six passes for 59 yards. Lodge is most likely being recruited for his potential, rather than what he has to offer right now. In a similar fashion, Lodge has offers from Baylor, Ohio State, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech.

Staying with the class of 2015 theme, '15 OL/DL George Brown made it known that he will be camping at Ohio State in the upcoming future as well as Baylor, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Syracuse, Tennessee, UCLA and USC. As of now, he's unsure which dates will be made to visit these schools, but the Buckeyes are sitting with the best of them for the Ohio-product.

The La Mirada football program hosts three recruits that Ohio State shows some interest for. Class of 2014 products '14 TE Tyler Luatua, '14 WR and current Oklahoma commit Dallis Todd, and '14 QB Kevin Dillman have had the Buckeyes watching them since last year, and have been targets for the Buckeyes for some time now. Now you can see that the Buckeyes aren't giving up yet on Todd, or shying away from Luatua. It will be interesting to see where this situation goes from here. Luatua is ranked as the best tight end in the class of 2014, while Todd is ranked as the 17th best receiver in the country.
