Quick Hits

  • Ryan Day and the rest of the OSU coaching staff locked up commitments from a pair of signal callers over the weekend. Committing as a preferred walk-on to the program, three-star class of 2019 quarterback JP Andrade picked the Buckeyes over opportunities at the likes of Fordham, Morehead State, and South Alabama; he also had the option to be a prefered walk-on for Florida. Also deciding to take his talents to Columbus was University of Kentucky graduate transfer Gunnar Hoak, a Dublin native, who has two years of eligibility left.
  • Four-star 2020 defensive end and major OSU target Darrion Henry will name his top six on Monday evening. Henry, a 6-foot-6, 260-pound Cincinnati Princeton product, holds offers from not just the Buckeyes, but also Michigan, Penn State, Alabama, and many others.
  • Per reports, Chris Holtmann and the basketball Buckeyes offered a scholarship to 6-foot-7 class of 2020 small forward Donovan Johnson on Sunday. Ohio State joins programs such as Arizona, Penn State, and Xavier on the hunt now for the younger brother of North Carolina standout Cameron Johnson.
