This past weekend the Buckeyes hosted two major uncommitted targets in the form of Scottsdale (AZ) Saguaro wide receiver Christian Kirk and Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga defensive back Marcus Lewis.

There is only one player on the visitor list for this week as things current stand, but it's a big one: Canton (OH) McKinley athlete Eric Glover-Williams, who became the first player to join Ohio State's 2015 class when he committed to the Buckeyes back on August 25th, 2013.

"(I am visiting Ohio State) Thursday," Glover-Williams told Land-Grant Holy Land. "(I'm visiting to) just getting more comfortable with being there (in Columbus).

Glover-Williams, who plays quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and corner for his high school, could play either offensive or defense at the college level, with the most likely scenario being him playing a Dontre Wilson type role on offense. He will have the opportunity to check out spring ball at Ohio State as the Buckeyes are slated to start spring practice Tuesday. The players will then take a week off for Ohio State's spring break, which is slated to start Saturday.

One benefit of being the only recruit scheduled to visit as the visitor list currently stands is he will be able to spend plenty of time with his future coaches. The staff won't have any other recruits to worry about during the time he is on campus. It will be the perfect time to get comfortable with the city, campus, football program, his future teammates, as well as Urban Meyer and co.

Before committing to Ohio State last August, Glover-Williams also entertained offers from the likes of Arkansas, Cincinnati, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan State, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

If more details emerge on the future Buckeye's visit or if any other recruits schedule a visit to Ohio State for this week, Land-Grant Holy Land with bring you the latest.
