Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 1/14 - Carlton Davis done taking visits, Kareem Walker to recruit others

Get caught up with the latest Ohio State recruiting news.

Student Sports

Some big news came yesterday when long-time commit Carlton Davis announced that he will not be taking any more visits this month. Davis committed to Ohio State back in August, but most seemed to think that the southern schools were still the favorites and that he'd eventually end up somewhere down there.

Since Davis is from Florida, Miami was always the school that stood out, but Arkansas also caught his attention because of his great relationship with coach Randy Shannon. The Hurricanes, Hogs, and Buckeyes seemed to be the final three until recently Shannon accepted a job at Florida and over the past couple of weeks, the Gators have been making a push to land the 4-star free safety. Davis was planning a visit to Gainesville this coming weekend, but this recent announcement shows a change of plans and all signs point towards Ohio State keeping Davis when it's all said and done. If it does indeed stick, job well done by Meyer and his staff as he'll be a big time player at the next level.

Wariboko waiting 'til signing day:

The class of 2015 is just about all wrapped up, but the coaching staff is still looking to add a couple of more players if they were to be the right ones. You can never go wrong by beefing up the offensive line. Josh Wariboko, an offensive guard who's the second rated player in the state of Oklahoma, is set to announce on signing day. The Buckeyes are in the thick of the race and could be geared up to make a late push. Keep an eye on this recruitment going forward.

Buckeye RB commit tries to recruit others:

We all know and are pumped about the huge haul the Buckeyes were able to bring in on Monday night. Kareem Walker, the number one rated running back in the class of 2016, is expected to focus his recruiting efforts on fellow 2016 prospects Jarrett Guarantano and Rashan Gary. Guarantano, a quarterback, has always held the Buckeyes in high regard. He's ranked as the fifth-best quarterback in the country and looks like a perfect fit for Meyer's offense. Rashan Gary, a defensive tackle who's also from New Jersey, is a unanimous five-star prospect and the number one rated tackle in his class. As we stand right now, it looks like this class of 2016 could end up being one of the best in the Meyer era...and that's saying somethin'.
