The Buckeyes might already be knee deep into the 2016 class, but they are always searching for top notch recruits to add to the 2017 class. American Heritage (FL) sophomore standout Kyshaun Bryan received an offer from Ohio State on Wednesday evening.
"I talked to Coach (Tony) Alford, and he told me they had offered me. It's very exciting. I've been wanting this offer," Bryan told Land-Grant Holy Land. "He (Alford) gave me some wise words about life, and asked me what I knew about Ohio State. He told me some information about the school, and said he would love for me to take a visit up there. I plan on visiting this summer, but I have no exact date yet."
A 5'11, 185-pound speedster, Bryan rushed for over 820 yards and seven touchdowns last season. Impressing many programs along the way, he has picked up quite a few scholarship offers from schools such as Florida State, Georgia, and Miami.
Even though the Ohio State scholarship is an offer Bryan wanted, it doesn't mean the Buckeyes are in the driver's seat for his commitment.
"Really I don't have a top or a low. I am very excited about this offer, and I can't wait to get close with the coaching staff and the school."
Bryan might not be too familiar with the OSU staff, but he is more than comfortable with a future Buckeye star. Alongside soon-to-be OSU true freshman quarterback Torrance Gibson, Kyshaun helped American Heritage once again win a state championship.
"It would be cool to play with Torrance again," said Bryan. "He is a great player, and I wish him the best at Ohio State. He's going to do great things up there."
Buckeyes offer 2016 LB
After recently missing out on Carter Coughlin, Urban Meyer and the OSU coaching staff offered five-star class of 2016 linebacker Lyndell Wilson on Thursday.
Wilson, the eighth-overall prospect in the 2016 class according to the 247Sports Composite, adds the Buckeyes to an already pretty solid offer list. Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Florida, Clemson, Georiga, Louisville, and Miami are just a few of the schools who offered the 6'2, 220-pound junior before OSU came calling.
Soon after Wilson picked up his scholarship offer from Ohio State, the Michigan Wolverines followed suit. While OSU and UM might want to add Lyndell to their roster, they have some ground to make up. The Alabama native has many around the recruiting scene pegging him towards playing his college ball for either the Crimson Tide or Tigers at the moment.
