Ohio State enters recruiting contact period

With the college football recruiting now in the contact period, expect Ohio State’s coaching staff to soon start making trips across the country.

The college football recruiting world entered the contact period Sunday, Nov. 25 and will continue until Dec. 15. This is the most lenient time for college football coaches in the recruiting game as they are given the most opportunity to create new relationships with recruits and build upon those already established in order to best set their program up for the future.

During this time, coaches are allowed to visit with recruits in person, no matter the location. Meaning, the beginning of in-home visits.

However, do not expect the Ohio State Buckeyes to hit the ground running with these as the team has a more important task at hand, winning the Big Ten Championship game this weekend over Northwestern.

With that being said, the Buckeyes will also not lean too far to the other side of the spectrum and have no in-home visits this week as well. Eleven Warriors reported that crucial five-star DE target Zach Harrison (Lewis Center, OH / Olentangy Orange) will see an in-home visit this week from Ohio State. The visit will reportedly be his final one as Penn State met with him Monday and Michigan will be in town today. Meaning the Buckeyes will have the last chance to sway him before he makes decision.
