Did you miss out on your Ohio State recruiting news fix this weekend? Don’t worry Land-Grant Holy Land is here to save the day. Sit back and get caught up on some of the latest news involving the Buckeyes.
Pickerington North duo to visit Ohio State
After leading their Pickerington North squad to a big 52-7 victory over Westerville Central on Friday, class of 2020 wide receiver Chris Scott and 2021 defensive end Jack Sawyer shared some info that should make Buckeye fans rather happy.
No, No. Ohio State didn’t land verbal pledges from the Central Ohio duo, but they will soon have the pair on campus for a visit.
Telling Garrett Stepien of BuckeyeSports.com on Friday that they will attend the Buckeyes matchup against Tulane next Saturday afternoon, both Scott and Sawyer will once again get an up close and personal view at what it would be like to suit up for Urban Meyer, and crew in the Scarlet and Gray.
After their 52-7 win at Westerville Central, the Pickerington North duo of 2021 defensive end Jack Sawyer and 2020 three-star wide receiver Chris Scott tells me they plan to visit Ohio State next weekend for the Tulane game — head coach Urban Meyer’s first back with the Buckeyes.— Garrett Stepien (@GarrettStepien) September 15, 2018
Even though the Buckeyes have yet to offer Scott an offer at the moment, the staff is keeping a very close eye on the three-star prospect.
Unlike Scott, Sawyer has locked in a chance to stay close to home and roll with the Buckeyes. Considered one of the top players in his class, the 6-foot-5, 220-pounder is looked as a current OSU lean, but holds early offers from some of the top programs in the Midwest.
Trying to poach him away from the Buckeyes, Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State are just a few of the schools pursuing the super sophomore.
Wilson goes off
On Friday future Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson definitely backed his five-star rating on the field during Lake Travis’ 42-21 roll away win over Bowie (TX).
Accounting for over 170 receiving yards and two scores in the victory, Wilson walked away from the game with more than that, also breaking Lake Travis’ all-time receiving touchdown record, which now sits at 46.
Displaying his many talents on the night, the former Dublin native also tossed a touchdown pass for the Cavaliers.
A verbal pledge to Ohio State since April, he chose the Buckeyes over opportunities to attend well over 30 schools. A list that consisted of most of the heavy hitters on the college football scene, Texas, Alabama and Georgia were among the program to throw their hats in the ring for the 6-foot playmaker during the recruiting process.
Want to know how some of the other future Buckeyes did over the weekend? Our Caleb Houser has you covered.
- Ohio State will reportedly check in on Nevada class of 2020 four-star forward Julian Strawther and class of 2021 guard Jadan Hardy later today. The 6-foot-7 Strawther holds offers from the likes of Arizona, Kansas and UCLA; five-star rated Hardy has earned scholarships from Arizona, Arizona State, Florida State, Georgia Tech and many other solid programs from across the country.
- Chris Holtmann and the Ohio State basketball staff will play host to 2020 Maumee (OH) standout shooting guard Zeb Jackson on an unofficial visit next Saturday. A four-star recruit, Jackson holds early offers from not just OSU, but also programs such as Butler, Michigan State and Purdue.
