Less is Moore
2018 wide receiver CJ Moore (Tulsa, OK / Union) released his top six on Tuesday evening — and that list included Ohio State. Moore, a four-star prospect, checks in at 6-foot-5, 180 pounds.

He fits the bill of the recent wide receivers the Buckeyes have brought in. Though they still covet speedsters, the staff has made an effort to get big bodies who are true outside receiving targets. Ohio State has been persistent throughout this process and have put themselves in a good position for the wide out from Oklahoma. The Buckeyes will continue to push for him over the next several months, as they must battle the likes of Ole Miss, Nebraska, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State and Oregon.
There is definitely legitimate interest on Moore’s part as he was last in Columbus, Ohio in late January for an unofficial visit. Ohio State would love to get Moore on campus sometime this spring or summer. Moore is currently a top 100 player and is rated the number three overall player in the state, according to 247Sports.
Harris makes an unofficial visit
Fellow 2018 wide receiver Meechi Harris (Xenia, OH / Xenia) was on campus yesterday for an unofficial visit and, according to reports, the visit went “well”.

Harris saw his recruitment start to take off in February. He now holds 14 offers, which include Cincinnati, Michigan State, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Though those schools have offered, Ohio State has not. Harris is another athletic prospect who stands at 6-foot-2 and has a recorded 40-yard dash time of 4.44. From Xenia, Ohio, the belief is that if the Buckeyes offer, Harris will most likely end up in their class. However, recruiting is never that easy. Harris will most likely have to camp for an offer over the summertime and prove to the coaches, in person, that he is worthy of an offer being thrown his way. As of now, Harris is rated as the number 22 overall prospect in the state, according to 247sports.
