Tutt reveals Top 2 programs

As things stand today for Head Coach Urban Meyer and Ohio State’s recruiting class of 2018, the Buckeyes have reeled in just two prospects — ‘18 quarterback Emory Jones of Heard County (GA) and ‘18 running back Brian Snead of Armwood (FL). However, from the looks of it, adding another Peach State prospect may not be too farfetched.

On Tuesday, 247Sports’ Bill Kurelic wrote a brief blurb on ‘18 cornerback Christian Tutt — a standout defensive back from Thomson (GA). In the article, the 5-foot-10, 185-pounder revealed his feelings on Ohio State’s performance this past Saturday. Tutt told Kurelic that he was “really mad” about the outcome. Tutt didn’t hold back in regards to just how much he has followed the Buckeyes this year. “I’ve watched every Ohio State game,” Tutt stated to Bucknuts.com.

Make no mistake, it doesn’t take much to see that the four-star cornerback is very interested in Ohio State. That’s why it should come as no surprise to know that Tutt also told Kurelic that the Buckeyes were in his top two along with the Alabama Crimson Tide. In the end, we will see if it’s the Scarlet and Gray who pull it out and eventually land the Georgia prospect. Surely, Greg Schiano, Luke Fickell, Kerry Coombs and company would be ecstatic to ultimate be the program Tutt selects.

Latest on Bolden and Bucks

Ohio State has done a tremendous job at Bishop Gorman (NV), as they have reeled in a trio of 2017 prospects in defensive tackle Haskell Garrett, wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey and QB Tate Martell. We also know that the Buckeyes aren’t done with the Gaels because ‘17 sfarty Bubba Bolden is still uncommitted and is a hopeful addition to Ohio State.

For now, Bolden and the three other current Buckeye commits from Nevada will be in attendance in two weeks when Nebraska comes to Columbus, Ohio to take on Ohio State. What we didn’t know is that Bolden will be accompanied by his mother when they make the trip to Ohio (and any other officials, for now), according to Bill Kurelic. As always, when family joins a prospect for a visit, it’s always a positive sign. We’ll see if Ohio State can take advantage of the visit and lock up yet another Bishop Gorman standout — something widely expected to happen.

With that being said, Kurelic was told by Bolden’s mom that the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder will be at Colorado this weekend for a visit to the Buffs campus. Kurelic was also told that a USC visit is definitely going to happen in the future. However, maybe the Buckeyes can end this battle before that visit takes place.
