Buckeyes offer a Sooner commit

On Tuesday, the Buckeyes sent an offer out to 2019 wide receiver prospect Arjei Henderson. Henderson, from Richmond, Texas, has recently blown up on the recruiting trail. Currently, the wideout has 21 total offers and is committed to Oklahoma as of two weeks ago.

At 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, Henderson has not yet been evaluated by the major recruiting sites, but that could quickly change. Henderson is a shoe-in to be one of the highest rated prospects in the state of Texas by the time his senior season rolls around. Though he’s committed to the Sooners, there’s a ton of time left in this commitment and Ohio State has recruited some excellent receivers in the last couple classes. Though ace Texas recruiter Tim Beck is no longer on staff, the Buckeyes will likely turn to Zach Smith, who’s made a huge name for himself on the recruiting trail over the years. The next step will be to get Henderson on campus over the summer or even next fall. When/if that visit occurs, it will be game on—and it will make Ohio State a legitimate threat in this race.

Below is a highlight reel from the 2019 prospect, as seen on Hudl.

It’s Announcement Day

In case you forgot, four-star all-purpose back Jaelen Gill (Westerville, OH / Westerville South) is set to announce his collegiate decision today. Gill, who holds 33 total offers, is considering the Buckeyes along with a handful of other Big Ten teams; additionally, other powers like Tennessee and UCLA have been in the mix here and there for the Ohio recruit.

Gill looks to fill the role that Curtis Samuel played during the 2016 season. Gill is currently ranked as the No.2 prospect in the state of Ohio and No. 32 in the country for the class of 2018.

If Gill commits to the home state favorite Ohio State, the Buckeyes would have their fourth member of the 2018 class. How likely is it that Gill will commit to OSU? The 247sports crystal ball had 26 predictions for Gill. All of the educated guesses went to one school: The Ohio State University.
