This weekend is shaping up to be a huge one at Ohio State with visitors coming from far and near. On Tuesday, this weekend's big visitor list got even bigger when Arkansas commit K.J. Hill made it apparent that he will be in Columbus for the Cincinnati game.
Hill is a big-time receiver who is the number one ranked player in the state of Arkansas. He committed the the Hogs at the end of August, but he has a handful of visits set up in the future -- a list that also includes Florida, Notre Dame, and Alabama.
The Buckeyes getting one of his officials is huge as it shows there is genuine interest in the program. Hill picked up his Ohio State offer in April and landing this four-star prospect would be huge for this class.
Ohio State should score plenty of points on Saturday that should be to Hill's liking. The real battle starts now and the Buckeyes get the first crack at the 6 foot, 190 pound wide receiver prospect.
Just confirmed w/ '15 WR K.J. Hill that he’s taking an Off. visit to #OhioState this weekend. Currently an #Arkansas commit. #WPS #Buckeyes— Kevin Noon (@Kevin_Noon) September 23, 2014
Here's the film on K.J. Hill.
2016 prospect Wayne Davis is also scheduled to be in Columbus this weekend. Davis is a cornerback who attended the same high school as current player Jalyn Holmes--Lake Taylor High in Virginia. The 5'11 speedster holds an offer from Ohio State already, but also holds some from North Carolina, Louisville, and Clemson.
Davis is currently a 100% Crystal Ball lock according to 247Sports. Davis picked up his Ohio State offer on May 6. It doesn't appear that Davis has a favorite at this point in time, but the Buckeyes are in as good of a position as anyone. I think that if Urban Meyer wants him, he'll get the Virginian prospect.
Just got home from ECU .... Going to Ohio State next Week ⚫️— Wayne Davis (@Waynedavis1_) September 22, 2014
Michael Menet is another that can be added to this weekend's list as well. Menet is a 2016 offensive tackle who has had the Buckeyes on his radar throughout his process. Coach Ed Warriner was in to see him in his school last week. Menet has a number of offers from all kinds of programs across the country.
From Pennsylvania, Menet appears to have the home state Nittany Lions out in front, but as we've seen before, one visit can change everything. The 6'5 prospect should get plenty of attention this weekend as he's the number one ranked player in the state for his class.
