2018 wide receiver has great visit with Ohio State

The Buckeyes impressed a recruit in addition to beating Northwestern.

2018 wide receiver Paul Woods (Buffalo, NY / Canisius) was in Columbus last weekend and reportedly had a “great” time on his visit. It was the first game Woods has seen in Columbus – and his second overall visit as he attended Friday Night Lights over the summer.

Woods holds one offer as it stands right now from Boston College. Don’t let that fool you, though. Woods checks in at 6-foot-1, 170 pounds and has a skill set that will make him one of the top WRs in his class by the time his senior year rolls around. Woods holds the Buckeyes in high regard and an offer from Ohio State would certainly be a big accomplishment. The Buckeyes are on him early and it’s only a matter of time until they are joined by a host of other top programs in the country.

Dobbins injury update

According to local Texas writer Rick Cantu, Ohio State running back commit J.K. Dobbins (La Grange, TX / La Grange) could be cleared to play in the U.S. Arm All-American game that takes place in January. Dobbins was injured back in August with an ankle injury and was deemed ‘out’ for his entire senior season. Though there’s a chance Dobbins can play in the bowl game in January, there should be caution because he has not done any football activity since the summer time. Dobbins remains solid to Ohio State and is ranked No. 40 as the best player in the class of 2017.

Grimes vistis OSU in primetime

There’s been a change of plans for Trevon Grimes as he made it apparent that he will be taking his official visit this weekend from the game against Nebraska. He was originally slated to visit later in the year. Grimes had successful surgery to repair his torn ACL a couple weeks ago and is primed for a return over the summer. If healthy, Grimes has a legitimate chance to grab playing time for the Buckeyes next season.
