Spring ball is officially underway for Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes, who have now completed two practices. While there are an unlimited amount of questions regarding the 2016 Buckeye football roster, recruiting could not be going better for Ohio State. Of the many ways the football staff can show their success, pro day may be at the top of the list beside a national championship. Today, Ohio State will have 22 players showcasing their talents in front of literally all 32 NFL teams at the Woody Hayes football facility. For a high school prospect, seeing what Ohio State has done to develop its players for the NFL may be the greatest recruiting pitch of all.

2018 twins set OSU visit
It's a rarity to see twins in FBS football. However, the Ademilola brothers, Justin and Jayson, of Jersey City, New Jersey, are two prospects that are seeing their recruiting processes really heat up. Both being products of the 2018 class, there's nothing but time for the brothers to sort out the next chapter of their education and football careers. However, last night, via his Twitter, Justin let it be known that he and his brother Jayson would be making a trip to Ohio State for an unofficial visit on April 2.
Justin, an outside linebacker, already possesses great size. Standing at 6'3, 225 pounds, the high school sophomore still has plenty of time to build on an already impressive frame. Given his college-ready build, programs from around the country have already thrown their hat into the ring offering the stud athlete. Programs such as Michigan State, Michigan, Georgia, Boston College, and others have already offered. While Ohio State has yet to pull the trigger, the April visit date may be something to watch for.
Jayson, a defensive end prospect, also has incredible size. Weighing more than Justin, the defensive line product checks in at 6'3, 260 pounds. Much like his brother, Jayson also holds several offers. Schools such as Auburn, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan State, and more are currently contenders for his services. As of now, Michigan leads the way for both Jayson and Justin on the 247Sports crystal ball predictions. There's plenty of time, however, if Ohio State wants to become true players for the twin prospects.
2017 WR places OSU in top schools
Make no mistake about it, Ohio State's 2017 receiver situation is about as pretty as it gets. Being the leader for top national prospects such as Trevon Grimes and sitting in good position for others such as Donovan Peoples-Jones, Ohio State receivers coach Zach Smith has already done an incredible job to set the Buckeyes up for another tremendous haul of receivers for 2017.
With that success comes the ability to be a major player for many of the nation's best. Hunter Rison, another 2017 receiver, recently gave the Buckeyes continued good news as he made it public via his Twitter that Ohio State made the cut for his top schools. The Ann Arbor, Michigan product is currently projected to stay close to home and head to Michigan State, according to the 247Sports crystal ball predictions. With Ohio State being in such good standing with the nation's top prospects as mentioned before, Urban Meyer can be selective when it comes to the receiver position. Regardless, Ohio State is sitting very pretty in 2017 across the board.
