College football recruiting has reached a month-long dead period. With the majority of recruits signing the National Letter of Intent during the Early Signing Period, Wednesday’s National Signing Day has lost a lot of its luster. That being said, not all is quiet in the recruiting world for the Buckeyes, as Ohio State is set to secure its final commitment of the 2020 class in four-star athlete Cameron Martinez.
Typically, there are no certainties in college football recruiting. However, this year’s signing day should hold no surprises for the Buckeyes. As a result, we can turn our heads to the basketball Bucks — who despite recent struggles on the court continue to impress off the court.
Late last month, we discussed how the OSU basketball coaches had been busy hitting the recruiting trail, including a visit with five-star small forward Kendall Brown (Wichita, KS/Sunrise Christian). The visit seemed to go as well as possible, because it was reported Monday that Brown now plans to use an official visit with Ohio State on Feb. 22nd.
The news was first reported by Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers.com.
Just like that: Ohio State will host five-star junior Kendall Brown for an official visit the weekend of February 22nd, his father told @Stockrisers. https://t.co/rt1oewqAvy— Jake (@jakeweingarten) February 3, 2020
Ohio State is not alone in Brown’s recruitment, as Marquette hosted him on an official visit in Oct. 2019. Programs such as Kansas, Texas, Baylor, Illinois, Maryland and Nebraska are all heavily recruiting him as well.
The five-star small forward is one of the top recruits in the country, ranked No. 6 at his position and No. 20 overall in the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
- 2021 four-star defensive tackle target Marcus Bradley (Gaithersburg, MD/Quince Orchard), will soon release his top 10 schools and Ohio State will have a chance to make the cut. The No. 16 DT in 2021, Bradley visited Ohio State in November of last year.
