Ohio State didn’t just beat Indiana on Saturday, they also played host to a very solid group of high school prospects.

Taking in the Buckeyes victory over a very feisty Hoosiers squad were numerous of Ohio State’s top upper and underclassmen targets.

While Urban Meyer and the Ohio State coaching didn’t walk away from the weekend with a verbal commitment from any of the recruits who made it to Columbus, they did seem to help themselves climb up the latter of some of their leader lists.
