The Buckeyes currently have two commitments from offensive lineman in this years recruiting class in '15 OT Kevin Feder and '15 OT Grant Schmidt. One in-state prospect that they are looking to add to the fold put the Buckeyes in his top two yesterday.

Per Rob Howe of, '15 OL James Daniels is down to Iowa and Ohio State. The Warren G Harding (OH) prospect is a three-star recruit and the 25th best player in the state of Ohio. Daniels received offers from Alabama, Auburn, Miami (FL), Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, UCLA, Wisconsin and others so far throughout the process. The 6'2, 282-pounder will be making his collegiate decision in the very soon.

Late Wednesday night, '15 QB/ATH Torrance Gibson announced on Twitter that he would be heading to Columbus early today. The unofficial visit to the Columbus campus will be Gibson's first which is huge for the Buckeyes. Ohio State will get an opportunity to make a big impression on the five-star talent. Gibson will be in attendance for the Friday Night Lights camp but is not expected to participate.

Tomorrow, Ohio State will be hosting plenty of big-time players from around the country as well as in the 2015, 2016 and even 2017 recruiting classes. Coming from Pennsylvania to Columbus will be '16 OT Anthony Long of Bishop McDevitt (PA). Long is a four-star prospect and the 25th overall player at his position and the 9th in the state of Pennsylvania. The 6'3, 292-pounder currently holds offers from Connecticut, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Old Dominion, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Temple and West Virginia.

Another attendee will be '16 ILB David Reese of Farmington (MI). The 6'1, 235-pounder has offers from Akron, Ohio, Toledo and Western Michigan. While he only has four offers, Reese is receiving interest from Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Pittsburgh and a handful of others.

Lastly, Per our own Charles Doss, '16 DT Jake Saunders will be visiting Ohio State for Friday Night Lights but won't be participating because of an hamstring injury. Saunders is a 6'3, 275-pounder from Loveland (OH) and is currently receiving interest from the Fighting Illini of Illinois.
