Ohio State dishes out scholarship offers to top-notch prospects

The Buckeyes handed out a chance to suit up in the Scarlet and Gray to a number of highly sought after recruits over the weekend.

Just weeks removed from signing a long list of highly sought after class of 2019 recruits, Ryan Day and the rest of the Ohio State Buckeyes coaching staff aren’t done trying to track down talent to add to their rosters down the road.

While the Buckeyes might’ve not landed a verbal pledge, they did give a 2019, and 2021 recruit a chance to jump on the ship Day and crew have set to sail in the coming seasons.

On Friday, the Buckeyes entered the race for one of the top unsigned offensive lineman in the class of 2019. According to his Twitter page, and a number of reports, Ohio State has offered a scholarship to Kahuku (HI) senior guard Enokk Vimahi.

Vimahi, a 6-foot-4, 281-pound Under Armour All-American selection, has landed his fairshare of offers from programs from across the country throughout the process. With OSU now on the table, schools such as Oklahoma, USC, Nebraska, Utah and Virginia beat the Buckeyes to the punch in offering the Hawaii native.

Looking to add another big body upfront, he could be the cherry on top of an already impressive haul of offensive lineman.

Still yet to shut things down, Enokk wouldn’t be the first senior roadblock heading to Columbus. The Buckeyes have already signed fellow senior offensive line prospects Harry Miller, Ryan Jacoby, and still currently hold a verbal commitment Doug Nester.

2021 ATH adds offer from Buckeyes

While Vimahi should be done with his recruitment in the coming weeks, another newly offered Ohio State target is just starting trying to find his college stomping grounds.

Already holding over a dozen college opportunities at the moment, the Buckeyes are now trying to entice class of 2021 athlete Emeka Egbuka to bring his talents to the Big Ten.

With still nearly two years until he signs on the dotted line with his next home, Emeka has already picked up many chances to play on the college level. Not just OSU, Washington, Florida State, Auburn, and many others have set their sites on bringing him into the fold.

Showcasing talents that could translate to either side of the ball on the college level, Egbuka, the second wide receiver and 38th overall prospect in the class of 2021, per 247Sports, has been a key part of Steilacoom’s domination on the football field in Washington state. Helping the Senators to an overall record of 10-2 as a sophomore, Emeka hauled in 72 receptions for 1,492 yards and 23 touchdowns. He wasn’t done there, as the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder also finished last season with 29 total tackles, and eight interceptions in the defensive secondary.
