It was a slow day recruiting wise yesterday for the defending national champions. With Ohio State in the thick of fall camp and two-a-days, the coaching staff is focusing its time and efforts on the current Buckeyes as they await the start of the season in just under three weeks. Unless commitments occur, recruiting news tends to take a backseat due to the season fast approaching. With that said, there is still plenty of time to round out the 2016 class already full of many of the nation's top prospects.
Decision coming for Pryts?
There have been many rumors on social media that this weekend could be the time for Andrew Pryts to make his choice on where he plays his college football. The 2016 Hermitage, PA star is a Penn State legacy as his father played for the Nittany Lions from 1979-1981.
As of recently, the Buckeyes have felt good with their chances of landing Pryts, but lately, most of the 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions have been favoring the home team. However, like I said, Ohio State still feels confident in the efforts Chris Ash and Luke Fickell have shown while recruiting Pryts. This will definitely be something to watch for this weekend as Andrew would be a great get for the Buckeyes.
According to 247Sports.com, Pryts is a top 20 safety prospect in the nation and the ninth best overall player in his state in the 2016 class. It's easy to see why schools such as Ohio State, Notre Dame, Stanford, Alabama, and many more have extended offers Andrew's way as he possess great size and skill at the safety position. The 6'1, 200-pound prospect may choose this weekend, so stay tuned for any news regarding Pryts's decision.
2017 OL receiving Ohio State interest
With a loaded 2015 recruiting class, and another great 2016 class, the Ohio State offensive line will see tremendous talent and size for years to come. It will be interesting to see how many offensive line prospects Ohio State extends offers too in 2017, but if one thing is true, Urban Meyer and staff will offer as many as they want if they feel the prospect is deserving of the offer. Recently, in an article with IndyStar.com, it was said that 2017 OL prospect, Caleb Jones of Indianapolis, Indiana is receiving high interest from Ohio State's staff and it's easy to see why. Jones has exceptional size standing at 6'9 and weighing 320 pounds. Jones does not currently own an offer from Ohio State, but one interesting thing to note is that he camped at Ohio State already two separate times this summer, including the infamous Friday Night Lights camp. As of right now, Jones does not own a ranking on 247sports.com, but with his monstrous size and one offer in his pocket already from the home state, Indiana Hoosiers, it will not be long before Caleb receives more interest from schools around the country.
The next big thing -- literally -- in football recruiting? Caleb Jones of @LNHSwildcats. http://t.co/ezyOgasIKW pic.twitter.com/4IhdNT1FaF— IndyStar HS Scores (@indyhsscores) August 17, 2015
