An offer to an in-state LB

The Buckeyes sent out a new offer to 2019 outside linebacker Cade Stover (Mansfield, OH / Lexington) on Tuesday. Stover, who already stands at 6-foot-4, now holds six total offers which includes the likes of Oklahoma and Virginia. Though he does not have any recruiting rankings, Stover is expected to be one of the top prospects in the state of Ohio by the time his senior year rolls around.

With the way he looks right now, a lot of people believe he will continue to grow and we could maybe see him transform into a 4-3 defensive end. Stover is extremely high on Ohio State as he visited Columbus last October and also received a visit from Urban Meyer in January. It’s starting to look more and more like Stover could become a Buckeye sometime before or during his junior season.

Ohio State hosted 2019 athlete Cameron Phillips on Tuesday. Phillips, from Westerville Central High School, checks in at 6-foot and stars on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball for the Warhawks.

Though he does play both sides of the ball, most colleges are recruiting Phillips to be a wide receiver at the next level. Phillips has not yet been evaluated by most of the major recruiting sites, but he does hold an offer from a Big Ten program in Illinois. The last month has been busy as he’s also been on campus at Michigan State. Right now, it looks like the plan, from Ohio State’s perspective, will be to keep Phillips warm over the next several months. It’s likely that Phillips will have to come to camp over summer and put on a show for the coaching staff. Phillips’ recruitment is just getting started as he’ll be one to watch in Ohio moving forward.
