Ohio State offers next 2019 WR prospect

Could Tayvion Robinson be the next great Buckeye pass-catcher?

Tayvion Robinson

What a week it has been for Ohio State football recruiting. With commitment pick-ups from two of the nation’s top remaining targets in Kamryn Babb and Tommy Togiai, Urban Meyer and his staff struck gold once again in the 2018 cycle. A direct correlation to the success this staff sees on the recruiting trail is due to the notion that when once class is signed, sealed, and delivered, the efforts to the next class are already in full force.

Accordingly, the Buckeye football staff has yet again proven that while their focus is putting a bow on the 2018 class and reeling in their finishing touches, 2019’s prospects are still seeing attention and rightfully so. With early signing day coming ever so quickly, Urban and company are full throttle towards the finish line.

2019 WRs are the trend for OSU

Lately it seems that the wide receiver position is the trend for Ohio State recruiting. With the pickup of a top star this week and the offers going out left and right to top 2019 receivers, it’s easy to see that Zach Smith knows the importance of a receiver in this Buckeye offense.

Fortunately, the most recent few classes will only help to give the Buckeyes continued options on the outside in this fast-paced offensive attack. The future too looks as bright as ever due to the never ending pursuit of the next Buckeye great.

Yesterday, the latest 2019 receiver prospect was offered when Tayvion Robinson took to his Twitter to announce his eighth and latest scholarship coming from Ohio State. The Virginia Beach native currently ranks as the sixth-best prospect in a very talented state of Virginia and the 46th-best receiver in the country, according to the 247sports 2019 grades.

At 5'10, 165 pounds, Robinson still has a year under his belt to develop even more both physically and athletically, but his offer from Ohio State shows he’s a prospect not to look past. With schools such as Duke, Virginia, Maryland, Virginia Tech, and more already in the fold, you can bet there’s more to come.

Coach Smith hinted on Twitter earlier this week that the “recruiting” was not done as he headed to the South and Robinson looks to be one of the reasons behind his tweets. Fortunately, Ohio State has hit the jackpot on more than one occasion when they’ve recruited Virginia Beach. Will this be the next case? Time will only tell.

A decision in the making

Just last week current Nebraska Cornhuskers football commit Cameron Brown took an official visit to Columbus to see Ohio State and what the Buckeye football program has to offer. The 4-star receiver from St. Louis took the visit with the fact that Nebraska—who he committed to at the time—now had a different coaching situation. While that situation looks to be improved, there’s still some unfamiliarity between the two parties, and of course Brown took his opportunities to at least see elsewhere.

The interesting piece? Brown is the current teammate of Kamryn Babb, one of the two latest commits to Ohio State’s 2018 class. The Christian Brothers College teammates are one dynamic high school duo and the possibility that they end back up together at the next level is looking more and more possible by the day. Rumors have swirled that while his pledge is still with Nebraska, when the pen hits the paper for signing day, it could be the Buckeyes that land the 4-star prospect.

Yesterday, an important detail from Brown himself was announced via his Twitter: that his plans are to sign on December 20th as part of the early signing period. The two parties most involved have obviously been mentioned already, but it’s important to note that more than eighty percent of the 247sports crystal ball predictions in fact belong to Ohio State. Both fan bases and coaching staffs will know within the next week, but things are certainly trending toward Ohio State for the other piece of the Christian Brothers duo. If so, the Buckeyes will then have pledges from Ohio’s L’Christian Smith, Kamryn Babb, and Brown. A more than impressive haul for Zach Smith and the Buckeyes' 2018 class.
