The Spring Game is right around the corner and the Buckeyes will have many recruits on campus to check it out. Yesterday, we learned of a new name that will be in Columbus on Saturday to check it out. Also, the Buckeyes had two prospects from the state of Kentucky on campus yesterday.

The big news Wednesday is big-time '17 OT Josh Myers will be visiting the Buckeyes this weekend to check out the Spring Game in Columbus. The Miamisburg High School lineman picked up an offer from the Buckeyes back on March 27th. The 6'5, 275-pound freshman has already piled up offers from major programs including Florida, Michigan, Tennessee and a handful of others. Myers previously visited Ohio State the day after he picked up the Buckeye offer.

Ohio State also had a few visitors checking out the campus on Wednesday. Starting with '15 QB Reese Ryan of Lexington Catholic in Kentucky. The three-star signal-caller has been the recipient of two offers thus far, which came from Louisville and Illinois. Among the programs showing interest in the pro-style quarterback are Kentucky, Purdue, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Reese currently sits at 6th overall in the blue grass state and 486th in the country for the 2015 class.

Accompanying Reese on the visit was his teammate, '16 TE Sam Letton. The 6'6, 220-pounder currently has one offer to his name which comes from the Wildcats of Kentucky. Letton is also receiving interest from the Purdue Boilermakers.

Lastly, '14 Ohio State hoops signees Keita Bates-Diop and Jae'Sean Tate were awarded with their fifth stars by ESPN yesterday. The updated rankings put Bates-Diop at 22nd in the country and 6th at the Small Forward position. As far as Tate goes, he jumped up to 28th in the country and 8th at the Small Forward spot. With Bates-Diop and Tate earning their fifth star, Ohio State now has three five-stars in the 2014 class. D'Angelo Russell, the 13th ranked player in the nation, is the other.
