Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 3/18 - Darius Fullwood to visit

A defensive end prospect from the state of Maryland has set the date for a visit to Ohio State's campus, while another recruit has to postpone his.

Darius Fullwood might be shown in a Miami uniform, but he's taking a visit to Ohio State on the 29th.

Ohio State got word on Monday that '15 DE Darius Fullwood has made plans for a visit to Columbus on March 29th. The 6'4, 240-pound defensive end from the state of Maryland was offered by the Buckeyes on January 18th and has been in contact with the staff since. Ranked as a 3-star prospect, Fullwood is rated as the 21st-best defensive end in the country for the class of 2015 and the 11th-best prospect overall in Maryland.

Fullwood has already obtained some high-profile offers from across the country. Among a handful of those schools are Alabama, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Miami, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia. Right now, the Crystal Ball has Fullwood locked in as a future Buckeye (70%) with Penn State (30%) the only other team with a chance.

Looking to the future a bit, '16 do-everything ATH Demetris Robertson has had to cancel his visit to Ohio State due to scheduling conflicts, but does intend to reschedule it for another time. Robertson is one of the most electric athletes in the class of 2016, with the ability to play a variety of positions including wide receiver and safety. The 6'1, 165-pound Robertson has drawn plenty of attention early, as he holds offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Ohio State, South Carolina, and Texas A&M. With such a prestigious list, don't be surprised if before long, Robertson holds offers from every top school in the country.

As of now, the Crystal Ball only has two predictions in for Robertson as many experts are waiting to find out more about where he's most interested in. Both of those predictions have him headed to Georgia, which is also his home state. Check out what he can do on the gridiron for yourself with the video below:

Two more recruits from the class of 2015 and Westerville South have planned to visit Ohio State this week. As mentioned above, this is a pretty big visiting week for the Buckeyes and adding these two makes it even sweeter. '15 OT Rob Dowdy is rated as a 3-star and the 22nd-best recruit from the state of Ohio.

The 6'6, 280-pound offensive tackle has garnered plenty of attention from top schools across the nation and already holds offers from schools such as Arkansas, Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, and more. He's also hearing from Auburn. Dowdy will be making his way to Ohio State on Tuesday.

The other recruit, '15 WR Abu Daramy, stands 5'10, 170-pounds. Daramy hasn't gotten as much attention from schools as Dowdy, but once he visits Ohio State, there's sure to be some more buzz coming his way. The wide receiver has been clocked at a 4.5 in the 40-yard dash, and that's enough to at least get looks from plenty of programs.

'15 ATH Jordan Cronkrite had a conversation over the phone with Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith on Monday. Cronkite is one of the top athletes in the class of 2015 and is a 4-star in the 247 Composite. The 5'11, 196-pound athlete is currently projected to be heading to Miami by every expert in the Crystal Ball. All 14 experts chose the Hurricanes, but I wouldn't be too surprised to see Ohio State or another program gain some ground over the course of his recruitment.
