Starting things off today, Wesley French is starting to pick up more interest from big programs including Ohio State. French, a 2015 offensive lineman from Michigan, checks in at 6'5, 300 pounds.
As stated before, the Buckeyes have only started increasing their interest in French; they have not yet thrown an offer his way. However, his offer list is starting to grow as he holds a handful from Ball State, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Toledo, and Western Michigan, to name a few. He'll have to continue to have a great senior season to hear from bigger programs, but nothing is out of the question yet.
There are still question marks around who Ohio State will take on the offensive line, and though French may not be plan A, there's no reason why he wouldn't have a chance. His feet are just getting wet as he's not currently ranked on national sites, but has a good chance to be the next time rankings are updated. It's reasonable to keep an eye on French over the next couple of months.
Burrow's on fire:
Current Ohio State quarterback commit Joey Burrow is making a bid at the title of Ohio's Mr. Football. Through just six games, Burrow has racked up 2,200 total yards and 30 touchdowns to just one interception. Burrow could be the most underrated player in this year's class as he has a chance to shine as a Buckeye.
There's something to like in every facet of his game as he's extremely accurate and mobile enough to be a threat on the ground. Burrow is a distributor that won't turn the ball over much. Growing up in Ohio, he knows what it means to play for the Buckeyes and he shouldn't disappoint when he arrives on campus.
Last Friday, Burrow led Athens High to a solid win over Steubenville. In the 58-43 victory, the future Buckeye signal-caller passed for 370 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing for 77 yards and two more scores. Burrow and his Athens Bulldogs hit the road this week and will take on Meigs High School.
- Another player that Ohio State is starting to show interest in is 2016 linebacker Koby Quansah. Here's our full update from LGHL's Charles Doss.
- Five-star defensive end and big-time Ohio State prospect Josh Sweat had surgery yesterday. It's unlikely that he will return to the field this season. The Virginia native recently visited OSU and has them towards the top of his short list:
Heard yesterday that 5-star DE Josh Sweat was supposed to have surgery. Hearing now that it went very well. Hoping for a speedy recovery— Adam Friedman (@RivalsFriedman) October 7, 2014
