It was just a little over one month ago that Ohio State was able to receive a pledge from '17 RB Todd Sibley from Archbishop Hoban (OH). Now, the four-star prospect is hoping to take visits to two programs in particular.
Would like to visit Michigan state and Notre Dame soon! ✊— T Sib™ ✨ (@ToddSib23) May 27, 2015
This should come as a surprise to no one. Sibley is a prospect that will not be able to sign for quite some time, so of course programs will continue to recruit him. New schools will jump into the mix by giving Sibley scholarship offers throughout his recruiting process and it will be the Buckeye coaching staff's job to not let Sibley be swayed away from Columbus.
Sibley will be in Columbus this weekend to participate in a regional event for The Opening. Despite the news of visiting other schools, the 5'11, 205-pounder quickly let it be known that the Buckeyes still have his word -- for now at least.
Still a Buckeye though!— T Sib™ ✨ (@ToddSib23) May 27, 2015
2017 WR sets visit to Columbus
When it comes to the receiver position for the 2017 class, '17 WR Emmanuel Greene should be one of the first names to come out of anyone's mouth. Greene, an IMG Academy (FL) prospect, is already listed as one of the best pass catchers in the class and the Buckeyes would be ecstatic to add him to the 2017 recruiting class at Ohio State.
Luckily for the Buckeyes, they will get their chance to make an impression relatively soon. According to Ryan Bartow of 247Sports, the Fort Lauderdale native will make a visit to Ohio State on June 24th. It will be a great opportunity to strengthen the chances of landing the 73rd-best player in the 2017 class. Currently, the 247Sports Crystal Ball reads that Ohio State is the favorite over in-state program Florida State.
As mentioned earlier, Greene is currently at IMG Academy in Florida which is also the home for two current Buckeye commits -- '16 OG Tyler Gerald and '16 DT Malik Barrow. We'll see if having two pledges as teammates will help sway Greene to the Scarlet and Grey.
Texas DB grabs Buckeye offer
It was a big day on Wednesday for Bishop Dunne (TX) CB Chevin Calloway. The four-star prospect from the 2017 class picked up three new offers from Illinois, LSU, and Ohio State. Quite an impressive day for the 5'10, 180-pounder.
Calloway grades out as the 20th-best player in the Lone Star State, the 14th-best player at the cornerback position, and the 194th-overall player in his class. Ohio State and the two other teams mentioned join an offer list of programs that includes Baylor, Miami (FL), Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA, Wisconsin and much more already.
