Did you miss out on your Ohio State recruiting fix over the weekend? Don’t Worry Land-Grant Holy Land is here to save the day.
Hawaii lineman visits Columbus
With fellow 2019 prospects Harry Miller, Ryan Jacoby, and possibly Doug Nester (currently verbally committed to OSU) headed to Columbus, Ryan Day and Greg Studrawa are still on the hunt to add an uncommitted big man to the fold.
Leaving the warm climate of Hawaii for the snow covered streets of Central Ohio, the Buckeyes played host to one of the top uncommitted senior linemen in the country.
Taking in what the Buckeyes can offer him on and off the football turf during the last few days, four-star class of 2019 offensive guard Enokk Vimahi officially visited the OSU football program over the weekend.

Considering taking his talents to not just Ohio State, but also the likes of Notre Dame, Oklahoma and USC, the 6-foot-4, 263-pound Vimahi will shut down his recruitment in just a matter of days as he plans to put pen to paper with his college destination on national signing day in early February.
Before his trip to Columbus many around the recruiting scene had Vimahi pegged to sticking around the West Coast on the next level—with most seeing him signing on the dotted line with the USC Trojans. The question now asked after his visit is this: Did Day and company do enough to sway him into lining up in the Scarlet and Gray?
We won’t have to wait much longer to find out. Stick with the Land-Grant Holy Land recruiting team for the latest.
Buckeyes play host to 2021 wide receiver
Vimahi wasn’t the only highly sought after prospect to make the long trek to Columbus to see what the Buckeyes are working with.
Also taking time out of his busy schedule to visit with head coach Ryan Day and the rest of the Ohio State coaching staff was St. John Bosco (CA) class of 2021 wide receiver Beaux Collins.
Visiting Columbus for the first time since locking in his scholarship offer from the Ohio State University in December, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound Collins might only be a sophomore on the high school level, but has a fair share of college opportunities on the table.
With offers from programs across the country, Florida, Florida State, Oregon, Notre Dame, USC and LSU are just some of the programs the Big Ten power Buckeyes find themself up against on the hunt for the West Coast standout.
See why Collins has so many programs trying to add his talents to their roster with these highlights of him in action:
- Ohio State dished out a scholarship offer to class of 2021 defensive tackle Elliot Donald on Friday. Donald, a Pittsburgh Central Catholic product holds offers now from around five programs, including Michigan, Pittsburgh and Rutgers.
- Also announcing a scholarship opportunity with the Buckeyes on Friday was three-star 2020 tight end Mark Redman of Corona High School (CA). The 6-foot-6, 250-pounder adds OSU to the a long list of offers that previously consisted of schools such as UCLA, Washington, Arizona State and Alabama.
