Martell on campus

Despite the commitment of Danny Clark, Ohio State will be hosting another signal-caller today. '17 QB Tate Martell from Bishop Gorman (NV), the best dual-threat QB in the country, arrived in Columbus Wednesday afternoon and will get a glimpse at what the Buckeyes have to offer.

Martell is currently pledged to Kevin Sumlin and Texas A&M, and has been since August of last year. The 5'10, 203-pounder is a five-star prospect and the best player in the state of Nevada for this cycle. The Las Vegas native is also graded as the 29th overall player in the class. It'll be an uphill battle for the Buckeyes in this one, but this is certainly a step in the right direction.

Also on campus later today will be '18 QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson, who is a teammate of Martell at Bishop Gorman. The 6'0, 195-pounder currently holds offers from Colorado State and UNLV and is receiving interest from schools like Baylor, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, UCLA, and more.

Bucks offer Gaoteote

In more Bishop Gorman Gael news, '18 OLB Palaie Gaoteote was the recipient of an Ohio State scholarship offer on Wednesday.

As mentioned above, The Buckeyes joined Nebraska, Notre Dame, Washington State, and Wisconsin on the offer sheet for the 6'2, 205-pound outside linebacker. While it's still plenty early in his recruitment, Gaoteote is currently pegged as a four-star recruit for his class.

Local 2018 DE to see OSU

Ohio State will also be hosting an in-state prospect on Wednesday who may very well be on track to land an offer from the Buckeyes before all is said and done. '18 DE Alex Reigelsperger of Wayne (OH) in Dayton is also scheduled to check out the Scarlet and Gray today.

Reigelsperger holds offers from Kentucky, Miami (OH), Purdue, and Western Michigan at this time. Cincinnati, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon, Penn State, and of course Ohio State are among the other schools that are keeping close tabs on the 6'4, 235-pounder.
