Kick back and get caught up with some of the latest news involving the Buckeyes recruiting efforts:
Ohio State target picked for Under Armour game
Just a week after making it back to the Ohio State campus for an unofficial visit, four-star Cincinnati Anderson offensive guard Zeke Correll was in Cleveland to participate in the Under Armour camp on Sunday afternoon.
A big time prospect on and off the field, the 6-foot-4, 270-pound Correll was selected alongside Akron Archbishop Hoban offensive guard and current University of Michigan verbal commit Nolan Rumler to suit up in the 2019 Under Armour All-America Game next January.
WOW! I had an AMAZING time competing and dominating today at the @AllAmericaGame UA Camp! I am extremely honored to receive an invite to the Under Armour All America Game in Orlando!!! #IWILL @steamboat_70 pic.twitter.com/nGL4F88tvy— Zeke Correll (@zekecorrell) February 18, 2018
Thought as an Ohio State lean by some in the recruiting scene, Correll will have a tough college decision ahead of him. With over 20 scholarship offers on the table at the moment, Notre Dame, Kentucky, Michigan State, and Penn State are just some of the schools that would down right love to keep Zeke from calling Columbus his future stomping grounds.
When it comes to national rankings, Correll is pegged as the 10th offensive guard, and 282nd overall recruit in the class of 2019, according to the latest 247Sports Composite.
2019 OL talks recent OSU visit
Last weekend Urban Meyer and the Ohio State coaching staff played host to a number of the top prospects in the classes of 2019 and 2020.
One of the recruits to make his way to Columbus to spend time with the Buckeyes was three-star Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller offensive guard Zach Carpenter.
“My trip went really well.” The 2019 standout stated to Land-Grant Holy Land.
Of the things Carpenter had the chance to do while at Ohio State, having time to chat it up with Buckeyes offensive line coach Greg Studrawa definitely stood-out to Zach.
“I have been to campus a few times over my sophomore and junior years, but I had not had the opportunity to spend time with Coach Stud until this past weekend. He texted me after the visit and said it would be great to have me up for spring practice. Overall things went well and it was a good visit.”
Although the Buckeye have yet to send out a scholarship to the 6-foot-5, 310-pound junior, Carpenter has locked in over a dozen offers from programs all around the country. Still weighing his college options out, Duke, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Pittsburgh, UCLA, Virginia and West Virginia are among the schools currently trying to add the lineman to their future roster.
- Three-star 2019 cornerback Joey Porter Jr., the son of former NFL standout Joey Porter, tells Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports that an offer from Ohio State would be a “game changer” in his recruitment. The Pennsylvania native holds offers from Pittsburgh, West Virginia, and many others.
- Another top notch class of 2019 prospect has OSU among the programs sticking out for his pledge. According to Bill Kurelic of Bucknuts, Ohio State and Michigan are high up on the list of three-star inside linebacker Marcel Lewis of Chippewa Valley (MI).
- 2020 Cincinnati Princeton outside linebacker Jaheim Thomas will visit the Ohio State University campus today. Rutgers, Bowling Green and Toledo have reportedly offered the 6-foot-4, 200-pound sophomore so far during the process.
