Another future Buckeye will suit up in one of the annual High School All-American games. Following in the footsteps of Buckeye running back Ezekiel Elliott, defenisve tackle Adolphus Washington, and many other current Ohio State playmakers, class of 2016 Ohio State commit Drue Chrisman will play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Accepting his invitation to the event after showcasing his skills during the Football University Top Gun Camp held in Dublin, Chrisman will team up with fellow OSU commits Jonathon Cooper, Demario McCall, and Austin Mack. Not just a opportunity to mingle with his soon-to-be college teammates, Drue will have the chance to go up against many other heavily recruited senior prospects in the country live on national television in January of 2016.

A Cincinnati LaSalle senior, Chrisman, arguably the best punter in the country, has been committed to the national champion Buckeyes since early May. Hauling in offers from across the country, Ohio State beat out Florida State, BYU, and UCLA for the three-star special teams standout.

Judson hits the road

Before heading up to Columbus from Cocoa, Florida for Friday Night Lights this week, Ohio State class of 2017 verbal commit Bruce Judson visited a couple SEC programs over the weekend.

After a recent trip to Florida State, the four-star athlete checked out Georgia for their Dawg Night camp on Saturday before making the trek down to Auburn to camp with the Tigers on Sunday.

With a Georgia offer already under his belt, the 5'9 speedster, who could play on either side of the ball on the college level, added a scholarship from Auburn to his list. While most teams like Judson on offense, the Tigers want him to play defensive back like his one-time high school teammate and former Buckeye Jamel Dean, who is now at Auburn.

Stating he's fully committed to the Buckeyes multiple times throughout the process, these trips are for Judson to make sure he made the right choice after announcing his pledge to Ohio State nearly three years before having the chance to line up for Urban Meyer and his staff.

Quick Hits

  • Per our very own Bret Favachio, class of 2018 offensive lineman Blaine Scott of Sciotoville in Portsmouth will attend Friday Night Lights at Ohio State this week. The 6'5, 300-pound sophomore, and former teammate of 2016 OSU commit Tyler Gerald, already holds scholarship offers from Mid-American Conference programs Ohio and Toledo. Gerald, who is now at IMG Academy in Florida, will also be in Columbus for the camp.
  • The Buckeyes will play host to one of the top class of 2017 linebackers in the country next month. After visiting Notre Dame on the 31st, four-star standout David Adams of Central Catholic High School in Pittsburgh will head out to see what the Buckeyes have to offer. Yet to receive a scholarship from OSU, Adams currently has the chance to play for the likes of Penn State, Louisville, Maryland, and Nebraska on the next level.
