Emory Jones to the Army All-American Game
Staying in the class of 2018, quarterback commit Emory Jones received in invite for the U.S. Army All-American game. The event takes a handful of top high schoolers each season. Jones, another five-star prospect, is 100 percent committed to Ohio State as he recovers from a shoulder injury he suffered a few weeks ago. Jones is expected to be back before the season ends and will most likely be a participant in the All-American game that takes place in January. Jones is the No. 10 player in the class of 2018 and also the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the country, according to 247Sports.

Buckeyes, Crimon Tide compete for Carman
Ohio State offensive tackle target Jackson Carman took an official visit to Alabama over the weekend. A class of 2018 prospect, Carman is rated the No. 17 overall player in his class and is a unanimous five-star recruit. At 6-foot-6 and 290 pounds, Carman has an ideal frame and will only continue to mature over the next couple of years. With the talent he has, he’ll be able to walk into whichever school he picks and compete for playing time right away.
Throughout the weekend, Carman was not shy about his visit to Alabama and even told Bill Kurelic that the Crimson Tide are in his top five. However, in that very same interview, Carman reiterated that Ohio State is still at the top of his list. It’s extremely likely that Carman ends up in Ohio State’s 2018 class. They’ll need to pursue him hard as Alabama will likely be the number two team, however, the Buckeyes are in great shape with the prospect from Fairfield High School.

Buckeyes Competing with Aggies for TE
The Ohio State-Michigan game will always provide a huge recruiting weekend for whichever team is hosting that season. Tight-end Mustapha Muhammad is expected to be in attendance when the Wolverines come to town. Another class of 2018 prospect from Texas, Muhammad holds 28 offers and is one of the best tight ends in the country. It looks as if Texas A&M is the favorite right now, but the Buckeyes have put themselves in a solid position as coach Tim Beck has taken the lead. If Muhammad does in fact visit in late November, consider Ohio State a legitimate threat to land the four-star.
