The Buckeyes added commitment No. 20 to this year's recruiting class on Monday night in the form of '15 CB Joshua Norwood, and they have a little over three months to fill out the rest of the group. Despite National Signing Day being right around the corner, Wednesday brought plenty of news regarding Ohio State targets in the 2016 class.
Buckeyes in the mix for five-star QB
We start with '16 QB Malik Henry from Westlake (CA). The five-star signal-caller announced on Twitter that he would be choosing his future collegiate destination next Thursday. Among the finalists for Henry include Florida State, Notre Dame, Ohio State and UCLA. According to the 247Sports Crystal Ball, Notre Dame and Florida State seem to be in the best position to land the 4th-overall player in the 2016 class.

Two ready to check out Ohio State
According to 247Sports' Steve Wiltfong, '16 ATH Jordan Fuller from Westwood, New Jersey is planning to make a visit to Columbus to see the Ohio State campus. Fuller is a 6'2, 190-pound four-star prospect from a state in which the Buckeyes have had plenty of success in recent years. The 124th-overall player holds offers from Alabama, Florida State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, UCLA and many others. Fuller is also ranked as the 8th-overall athlete and the 5th-overall player in the Garden State.
Also planning to see the Buckeyes in the near future is '16 RB Kentrail Moran, according to Josh Helmholdt of Rivals.com. The O'Fallon (IL) talent is fresh off of a visit to Louisville as he watched the Cardinals come up short against Florida State. Moran does not have an offer by the Buckeyes thus far but does holds scholarship opportunities from Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan and Syracuse. Moran is currently rated as a four-star in the class and the 199th-overall player.
