Everything seems to be going well for the Ohio State Buckeyes in the first two weeks of the season. Two very compelling victories have the Buckeyes sitting pretty with a top five ranking heading into their showdown with the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday evening. On the recruiting trail, things look just as good for the scarlet and gray, as coaches are out visiting some of the best talent, while other recruits still have the Buckeyes penciled in for a visit.
Moses sets his decision date
Ranked by 247sports as the No. 1 outside linebacker in the country for 2017, Dylan Moses (Bradenton, FL / IMG Academy) has made his date to commit.

While he is still penciled in to make a trip to Columbus and see the Buckeyes face the Wolverines on Nov. 26, there are some rumblings that his visit schedule could be altered.
Moses, a former commit to LSU, mentioned to the The Times Picayune that the Houston Cougars have jumped on his radar. Right now, the 6-foot-2 OLB is scheduled to visit Ohio State, Texas, UCLA, Alabama and Miami. If Tom Herman’s Cougar squad keeps impressing, then that would easily create a situation where Moses would swap out one of his previous announced visiting sites.
According to 247sports, Moses has been in talks with the Alabama coaching staff, and at one point, made the Crimson Tide a favorite. As it stands, Moses’ will be in Tuscaloosa, Ala. on Oct. 1. While some of the 247sports crystal ball predictions lean toward Moses going to Nick Saban’s program, the majority believe that the No.4 player in the 2017 class will go back to LSU.
As more develops on Moses’ recruiting schedule, we’ll have you covered on Land-Grant Holy Land.
2018 5-star gets a visit from Urban
Moving onto the 2018 class of recruits, offensive tackle Jackson Carman (Fairfield, OH / Fairfield) got a visit from coaches Urban Meyer and Greg Studrawa on Friday night. Carman took to Twitter before his game against Dublin Coffman to tell everyone of the great news.

Carman didn’t let the Buckeye coaching staff down, as the top player in the state of Ohio for 2018 displayed his blocking abilities.

Right now, the recruiting predictions have the Buckeye State prodigy staying within the state – and heading to The Ohio State University. Expect the Buckeyes to keep in contact with Carman leading up to his commitment.
Right now, the scarlet and gray are vying against the likes of Clemson, Michigan, Michigan State and USC for the nation’s No.17 recruit in 2018. Carman is also visiting other places, too. The day after Meyer and company made the visit to Fairfield, Carman visited Notre Dame.
If anything else happens with Carman, we’ll keep you posted.
