While out living your best life you might’ve missed out on some of the latest Ohio State Buckeyes recruiting news from over the weekend. Don’t worry, though, Land-Grant Holy Land is here to get you caught back up with things!

Buckeyes offer South Carolina commit

Currently verbally committed or not, Ryan Day and the rest of the Ohio State coaching staff are still searching the recruiting trail trying to find the right overall pieces to fit the Buckeyes puzzle.

Not afraid to throw their hat in the ring for talent, the Buckeyes have now entered the race for one of the top-150 junior prospects in the country.

On Sunday, four-star class of 2021 running back Lovasea Carroll, a University of South Carolina pledge, took to his Twitter page to announce the Buckeyes are the latest program to throw out a scholarship offer his way.

Before earning his offer from OSU, the 6-foot, 189-pound Carroll, who committed to the Gamecocks in April, showcased his speed and athleticism on Friday night in his first game suiting up for prep powerhouse IMG Academy (FL). Rushing for over 100 yards on 13 carries, he scored a pair of touchdowns to help pace the Ascenders past Venice High by a final score of 46-7.

2021 OL names leaders

Even though he still has nearly two years until he arrives on a college campus, four-star class of 2021 offensive tackle Micah Morris is already starting to realize what programs fit what he’s looking for on and off the football field the most.

Trimming things down from over 20 full ride scholarship programs from colleges across the United States, Morris wants to shift his attention to 11 schools. Making the cut for the 6-foot-4, 316-pound road block on Sunday afternoon was Ohio State, LSU, Clemson, Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Auburn, Florida and Georgia.

Already off to a rather quick start to their class of 2021, Ryan Day and OSU are currently looked as the fourth overall class in the country. Always wanting to add big bodies up front, Morris would be another solid piece to the offensive line class that already consists of verbal pledge Ben Christman out of Revere High (OH).
