Tomorrow's game is easily one of the most anticipated games of the entire Ohio State season. With two high profile teams going head to head this early in the season, the recruits on hand and the trash talk that was said yesterday by an Oklahoma backup quarterback, this match up feels like a playoff atmosphere – with playoff implications. The Buckeyes will not only look to impress their fans, but the eyes of several recruits in attendance for this contest.
Bucks offer 4-star ATH
When it comes to recruiting the "athlete" position, Ohio State has struck gold more times than not. Yesterday, Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes reached out to a 2018 four-star athlete from the Lone Star State to dish out their latest scholarship offer.
Joshua Moore (Yoakum, TX / Yoakum) announced publicly via his Twitter account that THE Ohio State was the latest to throw their hat into the ring of scholarship offers.
Racking up his tally of offers to 30, Moore ranked out as the 13th best receiver in the 2018 class and the ninth best prospect at any position in Texas for 2018. Standing at 6-foot-1, 170 pounds, Moore has the frame for an outside receiver but will look to get his weight up to be a true deep threat with the physicality to take on any defensive back.
As of right now, Texas leads the way followed by Oklahoma for the 247sports crystal ball predictions, but with Ohio State now in the running, anything is possible. Look for Urban Meyer and staff to get Moore on campus in the future for a visit before the recruitment really takes off.
Lindsey - Martell dup back in action
The nation's top ranked high school program has been connected to Ohio State for the better part of a year. Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas, Nev. plays host to several top recruits in the country. The Buckeyes proudly boast three of those prized recruit commitments in Tyjon Lindsey, Tate Martell and Haskell Garrett.
Offensively, Tyjon and Tate make a dynamic duo that connects for incredible numbers. At the start of the 2016 season, it was believed that Tyjon was going to be heading back to his home state of California and returning to his hometown prep school. However, with some mishaps in transfer rules, etc. Tyjon was left to head back to Bishop Gorman and his top ranked team to finish his prep career before heading to Columbus.
On Wednesday, teammate Tate made it known that while Tyjon had not yet been allowed to compete for Gorman, everything was cleared to go and Lindsey would be set and ready to get back onto the field for his national top ranked team.
This couldn't come at a better time for Bishop Gorman as they are soon set to face Florida power St. Thomas Aquinas – and of course yet another five-star Buckeye commit, Trevon Grimes.
Woodbey still high on OSU
It's been covered time and time again: Ohio State's graphic design team for the football department is easily one of the best in the country. Their weekly graphics and videos leave recruits and fans speechless on their abilities. Once again, a top ranked recruit the Buckeyes are going hard after expressed his pleasure with the graphic design team by displaying some of the social media "love" he was given.
Jaiden Woodbey (Upland, CA /St. John Bosco) is not a new name to Ohio State recruiting fans, as he has tried to plan several visits to Columbus to see what the Buckeyes have to offer. Unfortunately for both sides, the trips have fallen through each time. The nation's third best safety overall and third best prospect from California in 2018 is a target Ohio State has made clear they are recruiting very heavily. Both sides will eventually meet up in the future as a trip to Ohio State seems inevitable for Woodbey.
