Ohio State continues its countdown to fall camp and the beginning of the 2015 season, but until then, the Buckeyes' coaching staff is staying busy, especially on the recruiting trail. Whether it be sending out offers to talented recruits or setting up both official and unofficial visits with prospects and their families, there's always something to do in the round-the-clock offseason.
So it came as no surprise on Monday when '17 cornerback Marco Wilson took to Twitter to announce that Ohio State had sent him an offer. Wilson is a former high school teammate of Buckeyes freshman quarterback Torrance Gibson, and stands at 5'10, 163-pounds. Rated as a four-star in the 247Sports Composite rankings, Wilson is also ranked as the nation's 12th best cornerback, in addition to being the 25th best prospect from the state of Florida.
The Fort Lauderdale-native holds offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, Duke, Florida, Florida Atlantic, Louisville, Miami, Ohio State, South Carolina, South Florida, Temple, and Tennessee. It's been a busy June for Wilson, having received four of those offers this month.

Wilson's 247Sports Crystal Ball currently has three predictions in, all in favor of the home state Florida Gators. With offers starting to pour in, however, I suspect things may change in the near future.
April 9 was the last time '16 athlete and dual-threat quarterback Jordan Fuller took an unofficial visit to Ohio State, and while his spring visit went well (followed by a visit from Chris Ash later in April) and the Buckeyes seem to be in good shape, Fuller's recruitment is something to keep an eye on. As for his summer plans, it appears Fuller is set on visiting Alabama, Notre Dame TCU, UCLA and returning to Penn State.
The 6'2, 190-pounder is rated as a four-star under the 247Sports Composite and is ranked as the nation's 10th best athlete, and fifth-best prospect at any position in the state of New Jersey. For now, it appears Fuller will take all five available official visits. Whether Ohio State gets one of those visits or not, might be a pointing factor into what the chances the Buckeyes have of landing him.
Fuller holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Wisconsin, and is receiving interest from Nebraska, Oregon, Stanford, and TCU. Fuller's top five teams also appear to be Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, and UCLA. Stay tuned for more updates on Fuller and his recruitment process in the coming weeks.
