Get caught up with the latest Ohio State recruiting news.

Austrian Robinson offered:

Ohio State is continuing their pursuit for defensive linemen for the class of 2015, as they sent out a new offer to Austrian Robinson. Robinson is a monster, physically, who stands at about 6'6 and checks in around 250 pounds. Yes, the weight is on the lighter side for a man his height, but there's a very good chance that he puts on about 20 more or so when he arrives on a college campus. Robinson is the number two rated player from the state of New York and has favored Maryland for most of his process up to this point. However, with Ohio State offering, the Buckeyes are considered a legitimate threat and this demands watching over the last month until signing day.  He has most of his official visits scheduled over the next several weeks and is slated to be in Columbus on January 30. Numbers are getting tighter and tighter with Ohio State's class almost entirely filled up, so anyone they take this late in the process would not be considered a reach at all. Other than Maryland, Ole Miss and Miami (FL) are thought to be the other top contending schools to land the 3-star prospect. You can check out his film here.

Davis to visit Florida:

Carlton Davis has made it apparent that he will take a visit to Florida instead of taking a trip to Arkansas. This could be thought of as good news, because the Hogs were thought to be somewhat of a threat to make a move on the big-play safety. However, looking at it from the other perspective, Davis is now giving that attention to the home state school--what gives? Randy Shannon, who used to be part of the Arkansas coaching staff, is now a coach at Florida. Throughout this process the Gators haven't looked like a huge threat, but this hire could change things a bit. Davis has been close to Shannon since he was at Arkansas and now that relationship carries over for the blue and orange. For some time it looked like it would be an Ohio State-Miami-Arkansas battle to the end. Things change. Expect Florida to make a late push for the longtime Ohio State commit and don't be surprised if he uses all five of his official visits down the stretch.
