Did you miss out on some of the latest Ohio State recruiting news over the weekend? Dont worry, Land-Grant Holy Land is here to get you caught back up with things.

Buckeyes make the cut

The Ohio State football program is already blessed with the top overall recruiting class for 2021, and from the looks of things their momentum on the trail isn’t going to slow down anytime soon.

In what seems to be an almost daily occurrence, the Buckeyes found their name among the leader lists of some of the most sought after soon-to-be senior prospects the high school level has to offer over the weekend.

Currently sitting with 10 verbal pledges, three more class of 2021 prospects could soon join Pickerington North defensive end Jack Sawyer, wide receiver Jayden Ballard of Massillon Washington, and others in calling Columbus their future home after taking to Twitter to share with the world who is still in the running for their signature on the dotted line.

Three-star tight end talks recent offer

Just weeks removed from signing a solid class of 2020 recruits, the new-look Ohio State football staff have been hitting the trail hard trying to make sure the future stays bright by dishing out offers to some of the top rated class of 2021 and 2022 prospects.

On the hunt to add another 2021 tight end to bring into the fold alongside current commit Sam Hart, the Buckeyes recently offered three-star South Mecklenburg (NC) standout Bryson Nesbit.

“Coach Wilson and I have been talking for a while. He wanted me to know that this was a committable offer, and he wanted it to be a genuine one.” The 6-foot-6, 225-pounder stated to Land-Grant Holy Land on his chance to suit up in the Scarlet and Gray.

Putting together a rather lengthy list of potential college landing spots, Nesbit adds the Ohio State offer alongside the likes of North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Penn State, and Virginia Tech. While he holds many opportunities to chase his NFL dreams, his offer from Ohio State isn’t something he’s taking with a grain of salt.

Before he jumps to any type of commitment plans, the staff and Nesbit have a few things they want to get done.

“Coach wants me to get on campus to see the school, and also talk to players so I can make my decision.”

When it comes to rankings, Nesbit could see his value skyrocket in the near future. At the moment, he’s pegged as the No. 20 tight end, and 498th overall prospect in the class of 2021, per the latest 247Sports Composite.
