Clemson commit Juwuan Briscoe picked up an Ohio State offer. Ke'Shawn Vaughn earned an offer for himself. Do the Buckeyes have a chance at landing either? Also, a slew of prospects are visiting this week. Find out who.

Student Sports

Starting things off today, Clemson commit Juwuan Briscoe picked up an offer from Ohio State on Tuesday. Briscoe committed to the Tigers last May, but was high on the Buckeyes throughout his process. A cornerback from Maryland, Briscoe possesses elite speed as he's already been clocked at a 4.43 40 time. Also, he's a legit 6-feet tall. He's a specimen that any program in the country would love to get their hands on. Briscoe is the 11th-rated prospect in the state of Maryland, but look for that number to improve by the time his senior season is over. Numbers are getting tight for the class of 2015 and it's unknown where the Buckeyes stand on his list currently. A visit obviously will be telling as a trip to Columbus would have to happen if there is legit interest. Keep an eye on this one over the next few months. Here's the link to Briscoe's highlights.

Buckeyes offer Vaughn:

Ke'Shawn Vaughn was also able to pick up an offer himself on Tuesday. Vaughn is another class of 2015 prospect-- a running back from Tennessee. He can add the Ohio State offer to his list that includes Tennessee, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt, Cal, and Kentucky. Vaughn is rated as a four-star prospect and is the 10th-rated player in the state. He has excellent vision and can run through arm tackles with ease. At this point, it doesn't seem like Vaughn would be a plan A type as Ohio State is still sitting pretty with Damien Harris. However, if they were to lose out on Harris, look for Vaughn to get a longer look from the staff.

OSU looks to add DE depth

New Jersey native Ron Johnson made it apparent that he will be visiting Columbus this weekend. Johnson is rated a four-star prospect and already holds an Ohio State offer. The Buckeyes are considered to be one of his favorites along with Penn State and Wisconsin. Johnson has a number of Big Ten offers and will be considered one of the best in the state next season. Ohio State will be in this one all the way to the end. Here's the film on the 6'4 defensive end.

Package deal for Imatorbhebhe brothers?

Daniel Imatorbhebhe cancelled a visit to Cal in order to be in Columbus this weekend. This comes as good news to Ohio State as tight end is a need for this year's class and Daniel fits the bill at 6'4 227 pounds. A handful of schools are in on the Georgia native and the favorite could be Florida as the 247Sports crystal ball has them as a 64% chance to land him. Daniel's size creates a mismatch for defenders and he has the frame to put on even more weight at the next level. Coach Meyer has had success recruiting the state of Georgia and there's no reason Imatorbhebhe can't be the next one. A good visit should vault Ohio State near the top of his list. Also, his brother Josh Imatorbhebhe is tagging along for the visit as well. These two seem to be a package deal. Unlike his brother, Josh is a 2016 prospect and is a true wide receiver. He holds an Ohio State offer. He visited back in June which means this return visit is big. There is genuine interest in the Buckeyes.

QUICK HITS:

- Ohio native Quintin Herbert was offered a preferred walk on scholarship. Herbert is an Ohio native from La Salle High School. Herbert is a 6'2, 225-pound middle linebacker.

- Current commit Carlton Davis picked up an offer from Texas yesterday. Though he's committed to the Buckeyes, 17 analysts have him picking Miami (FL) when it's all said and done. This Texas offer most likely does not change a whole lot for Davis as it will be a Hurricanes-Buckeyes battle till the end.

- Keyshawn Johnson Jr., though just a 2017 prospect, holds the Buckeyes in high regard. Johnson Sr. recently made a statement that he thinks Ohio State would be a solid option.
