A couple of 2018 recruits pick up Ohio State offers on Election Day

The Buckeyes throw their hat into the running for standout prospects.


Offers, offers everywhere

An offer was sent out to 2018 athlete Dyami Brown (Charlotte, NC / West Mecklenburg) on Tuesday afternoon. Though Brown is listed as an athlete, he’s expected to play wide receiver at the next level. At his current high school in North Carolina, Brown does a little bit of everything on offense including wide receiver, running back, and even quarterback. At 6-foot-2, Brown presents challenges when lined up on the outside and his great leaping ability extends his reach even more. He can take the top off of defenses too, as he possesses good speed. Currently, Brown is ranked as a top 200 player in his class, including being listed as the No. 8 overall player in the state of North Carolina.

With the Ohio State offer yesterday, his offer count now stands at 10. In addition to the Buckeyes, Brown has been able to accumulate notable offers from Michigan, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and Louisville. Though we’re still early in the process, it looks as if the Hokies are the favorite. Things can change in a hurry, though, especially if Brown is able to find his way to Columbus this fall or in the spring. The interest from Ohio State looks to be legit and they will continue to chase Brown over the next several months.

Speaking of offers, the Buckeyes sent out another one to class of 2018 WR and four-star talent Kevin Austin Jr. (Pompano Beach, FL / North Broward Prep) on Tuesday.

So far, Austin Jr. has secured 24 offers; some of those offers come from the likes of Notre Dame, Miami (FL), Tennessee and a few Big Ten institutions – those being Michigan State, Rutgers and Purdue. Those offers to the Pompano Beach talent are warranted, as he is a top 50 player in both the Sunshine State and in the nation at the WR position.

Revisiting recruits at the Nebraska game

Teammates Jashawn Sheffield and Jaylin Simpson were in Columbus over the weekend and reportedly “loved” their visits as the watched the Buckeyes dismantle Nebraska. From Georgia, both are 2019 prospects as Sheffield is slated to be one of the top WRs in his class and Simpson is expected to be one of the best overall athletes in his class. As always, the SEC powers will be tough to beat for the pair of Frederica Academy stars, but there is big-time mutual interest between both of the prospects and Ohio State. The Buckeyes are in it early and that’s all that can be asked at this point in the process.
