The Ohio State coaching staff stayed busy on the recruiting trail on Wednesday as they sent out two new offers. They also was placed in the top four of a talented dual threat QB as well as getting a visit from an in-state lineman with Buckeye ties.
The first recipient of an Ohio State offer on Wednesday was '15 RB Larry Scott. The Hubbard High School tailback is a 4-star prospect and is the 6th ranked player in the state of Ohio in this recruiting class. Scott has already picked up offers from the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Michigan State, Tennessee and more. The 6'0, 205-pound back also comes in as the 8th overall running back and the 88th best player in the nation. Many believe that Michigan State is in the best position to land the talented back. Did Ohio State jump in a bit too late? We will see.
The other prospect to receive an offer from the Buckeyes was '15 CB P.J. Mbanasor, who is currently committed to TCU. Mbanasor committed to the Horned Frogs back in January but has since picked up offers from Missouri, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss , Wisconsin, Ohio State and a few others. The 4-star CB from Hendrickson High School in Texas told Rivals' Marc Givler that he wants to visit Ohio State. The 6'2, 185-pounder is the 40th ranked player in the lone star state, the 20th at his position and 290th overall for the 2015 class.
'15 QB Deondre Francois has named a top four and the Buckeyes have made the cut:

Francois has already picked up an offer from the Buckeyes about a month ago and has yet to visit. Francois is a 3-star dual-threat QB that stands at 6'1 and 190 pounds. While Francois is ranked as the 615th ranked payer in the 2015 class, his offers tell us different. The Olympia High School prospect has offers from Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, Tennessee and many more.
Lastly, '15 OC James Daniels told Rivals' Josh Helmholdt that he plans to visit Ohio State and Auburn sometime this month. Daniels is the son of former Ohio State Buckeye LeShun Daniels. The Warren G Harding linemans recruitment has spiked as of recent and he now holds offers from Auburn, Miami (FL), Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, UCLA, Wisconsin and others. Daniels is currently the 28th best player in the state of Ohio, the 610th in his class. The 6'2, 282-pounder is also the 6th best player at offensive center. Personally, I fully expect Daniels to be a Buckeye when it's all said and done.
