After attending camp late last week, Ohio State offered class of 2015 Georgia quarterback Lorenzo Nunez Friday. The class of 2015 signal caller had a busy week that ended with him receiving offers from the Buckeyes, Clemson, Tennessee and Kentucky. Last season for Harrison High, the 6-2, 190-pound Nunez accounted for 1,269 passing yards and 11 touchdowns.

The Buckeyes also offered fellow class of 2015 recruit and current LSU commit Kevin Toliver on Friday. The 6-2. 180-pound Trinity Catholic (FL) defensive back is rated a five-star recruit according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings. The site lists him currently as the 33rd best player in his class, the top cornerback and the seventh best player in the Sunshine State. Toliver picked the Tigers over such programs as Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State and Michigan, to name a few of the many major programs to send out a scholarship his way.

Urban Meyer and the Ohio State football coaching staff played host to a few highly touted prospects over the weekend. One of those recruits was JUCO offensive tackle Chad Mavety. The 6-6, 320-pound hog visited Columbus with his Nassau Community teammate and former North Carolina Tar Heel Keeon Virgile. Mavety has found himself as one of the top recruits the staff is trying to add to the class of 2014.

After visiting Notre Dame, Fort Lauderdale, FL defensive back Quincy Wilson also checked out what Ohio State had to offer this weekend. Quincy is the son of ex-NFL linebacker Otis Wilson and isn't the only Wilson to find glory on the field. Programs such as Florida, Georgia, LSU, UCLA and USC join the Bucks and Fighting Irish as programs trying to add Quincy to their roster. According to the 247 Composite Rankings, a gang of recruiting analysts feel he could wind up playing his ball in the 614.

The Buckeyes also had class of 2015 offensive line prospect Drew Richmond on campus. The 6-6, 300-pounder grew up a big Ohio State fan and lived out a dream finally getting to check out the program up close and personal. Quite a few teams are showing early interest in Richmond, who currently holds offers from home state Tennessee and Vanderbilt to go along with the Bucks, Alabama, Florida State, Ole Miss and a host of others.

Let's switch things to the hardwood, where Ohio State recruits Jae'Sean Tate, Keita Bates-Diop and D'Angelo Russell all participated in the NBPA Top 100 camp held in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. Some of the Ohio State targets that participated in the camp were Leron Black, Elbert Robinson, Isaiah Briscoe and Myles Turner, among others. The name Myles Turner might sound new to Buckeye Nation. The 6-11, 230-pound Texas power forward was offered by Thad Matta and the Buckeyes late Thursday after being one of the top players on the AAU circuit this summer. Turner balled out all weekend and was on many recruiting analysts' top performers lists.
