It was a news-filled Wednesday in the world of Ohio State recruiting, as the Buckeyes sent out offers to a handful of prospects and went out to see one of Georgia's defensive backs. Also, a safety from Pennsylvania plans to visit Columbus in the coming days.
Five prospects grab OSU offers
While the Buckeyes sent out five offers yesterday, only one of them went out to a player in the 2016 cycle. That player was '16 WR Kyle Davis, a South Carolina commit from the state of Georgia. It's unknown at this time how the offer will affect the recruitment of the Archer (GA) pass catcher, but Ohio State is likely hopeful to get him on campus in the next few months.

Three of Wednesday's scholarship offers were given to Garden State prospects. '17 OT Micah Clark, '17 DT Fred Hansard, and '17 DT Dalyn Wade-Perry were the recipients. All three players that received offers are ranked as top five players in the state of New Jersey next year, so we'll see what magic Ed Warriner can work. Since the hiring of Urban Meyer the Buckeyes have had plenty of success in the state. It all started in 2013 when Ohio State pulled Eli Apple out of NJ and the momentum continued the next season when Darius Slade and Noah Brown, who attended the same school as Wade-Perry, signed with OSU. Last year, coach Warriner flipped an underrated offensive lineman by the name of Kevin Feder from Miami (FL) and for now, Kareem Walker, the best RB in the country, is committed.
The final offer on Wednesday was to Florida standout Jerry Jeudy, a 2017 WR from Deerfield Beach (FL). The offer to Jeudy from Ohio State puts them along with schools like Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, and many more on his list. For now, the Pompano Beach native is graded out as a four-star prospect and the 171st-best player in the 2017 recruiting class.

Pryts making weekend visit
Lastly, the Buckeyes will be getting a visit from '16 S Andrew Pryts this weekend. It was 247Sports' Alex Gleitman who delivered the news of the weekend trip for the three-star prospect. The trip for Pryts won't be his first, as he made a stop in Columbus just one month ago.
It is coaches Luke Fickell and Chris Ash leading the way in the recruitment of Pennsylvania's 11th-best prospect. The Buckeyes are hoping to make yet another good impression on the 6'1, 200-pounder in hopes of adding him to the nation's third-ranked recruiting class and the best class in the Big Ten, which has been a trend in the Urban Meyer/Ohio State era.
