Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 3/11 - Drew Richmond lists top teams

The Buckeyes make the cut of favorite schools for a top offensive lineman in the class of 2015 among 10 other schools, while also landing among the top eight on another recruit's list.

Ohio State was given plenty of good news on Monday as the Buckeyes made the lists of two top prospects in the class of 2015. '15 OT Drew Richmond went to Twitter on Monday afternoon to deliver the list of his top 11 schools and set a date for when he will be making his decision. The 6'5, 315-pound tackle is a 4-star and is ranked as the sixth-best offensive tackle in the country as well as the best prospect from the state of Tennessee.

Richmond sent out the tweets at around noon on Monday, listing Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, LSU, Memphis, North Carolina, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and UCLA as the final 11. Among those schools, Tennessee (57%), Ohio State (39%), and Ole Miss (4%) are the only teams listed as having a chance to land Richmond, according to the Crystal Ball. As mentioned before, Richmond also tweeted out the day he plans to announce:

Another recruit that released a list was '15 TE Chris Clark. Clark, a 6'6, 247-pound tight end from Connecticut, listed Arizona State, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio State, South Carolina, Texas Tech, and Virginia. As it stands right now, it seems Clark's recruitment has been pretty well-balanced, as the Crystal Ball experts have no clear leader of the pack for his services.

'15 QB Torrance Gibson has been one of Ohio State's main targets in the class of 2015, and during the first week of spring football, the Buckeyes are hoping that the hard work will pay off in the form of making another cut in the future. So far, Ohio State is favorite to land the dual-threat quarterback from Florida.

In some basketball news, '15 G Luke Kennard, one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the class of 2015, will be visiting Ohio State sometime this April. Kennard has long been in contact with Thad Matta and the Buckeyes and is being sought after heavily by many of the nation's top schools.
