Dante Stills is set to visit OSU this weekend. The Buckeyes have a chance to get an early lead for the 2018 defensive tackle.

With the spring game right around the corner, Ohio State is continuing to add to their visit list. With a ton of highly touted players already confirmed to be on hand for the spring game, Ohio State can also add 2018 defensive tackle Dante Stills (Fairmont W.Va. / Fairmont) to the list.

Stills, a 6-foot-4, 265 pound prospect, holds one offer from West Virginia as it stands right now, but that list is sure to grow with the summer camp circuit on the horizon. There's no doubt that WVU has put themselves in a position to be the early front runner.

Last weekend, Stills was part of the Rivals Camp series when they made the appearance at Hamilton Township High School in Columbus.

Stills uses his brute strength and size to disrupt offenses and continuously is able to get into the backfield. However, a good visit this weekend to Columbus, Ohio has the potential to go a long way for a prospect that is sure to be ranked in the top 10 in his position group by this time next year. Stills is currently rated a four-star prospect by 247Sports.

Another recruit looks forward for the Spring Game

According to reports, 2017 defensive tackle Dalyn Wade-Perry (Englewood, N.J. / Pope Joh XXIII) is excited to be in Columbus this weekend for the spring game. Though he's only ranked as a three-star, he holds a total of 25 offers.

The Garden State product has offers from everywhere in the country, but the two schools that seem to be standing out right now are Stanford and Notre Dame, according to 247Sports' Crystal Ball Prediction.

Wade-Perry already holds an offer from Ohio State with coach Larry Johnson taking the lead in his recruitment. The Scarlet and Gray can afford to be picky at the defensive tackle position moving forward with two commitments already in Haskell Garrett and Jerron Cage.

However, the Buckeyes are expected to take a third in this cycle and a good visit this weekend will go a long way in telling if Wade-Perry is a legitimate shot to land in Columbus.

Here we see what the 6-foot-3, 330 pound tackle can do.
