Over the past couple of days, the Ohio State coaching staff has been busy on the recruiting trail. After the spring game Saturday, Ryan Day and coaching staff went onto the road and have been looking towards the future this week. The first one we will take a look at is Cody Brown, who announced his offer Wednesday on Twitter.
Brown is a currently a four-star 2021 running back from Parkview High School in Lilburn, Ga. The Buckeyes are Brown’s 10th offer, and the competition includes notable programs Penn State, Georgia, Auburn, LSU and Georgia Tech.
The 6-foot, 210-pounder has plenty of time to work on his craft and get better. He has good size but could work on getting bigger with the Big Ten defenses bearing down on him. His recruitment will be fun to watch as he narrows down his list and heads into next season.
Another recruit that has been offered is Noah Sewell. According to his Twitter, Sewell was offered Wednesday and used a picture of J.K. Dobbins in his announcement.
Sewell is a four-star athlete from Orem High School in Orem, Utah. Sewell is currently ranked by 247sports as the No. 77 overall player in the 2020 class. He is also the sixth ranked athlete in the class and the No. 1 player in the Beehive State.
The 6-foot-2, 266-pounder is one of the most viewed athletes in the 2020 class and would be a huge grab the Ryan Day and his staff. He currently holds offers from Alabama, Oregon, LSU and Texas A&M. The 247sports crystal ball has an early consensus (seven votes) in him selecting Oregon, but we will see where he is leaning as his recruitment and commitment date becomes more apparent. Sewell recently visited Oregon on April 4 on an unofficial visit.
A third offer that was made from OSU was for Rickey Hyatt Jr. Hyatt Jr. officially announced his offer via Twitter on Tuesday night, using a picture of the team and overhead view of Ohio Stadium.

Hyatt Jr. is a three star safety from the state of Ohio, and is a nearby prospect—he attends Westerville Central in Westerville. He is currently ranked by 247sports as the 39th best safety in the 2020 class and the 20th best player in Ohio.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound safety also holds offers from Michigan State, Kentucky, Iowa State and Cincinnati, so an offer from his hometown team is a huge one. He is a raw talent, but has many great attributes that he can build upon throughout his senior year. His current crystal ball predictions land him with the Buckeyes.
