Between eating ungodly amounts of food, day drinking, protecting your toilet paper stash, and taking multiple mid-day naps, you might’ve missed out on some of the latest news surrounding the recruiting efforts of the Ohio State Buckeyes football squad over the weekend. Don’t worry! Land-Grant Holy Land is here to try and save the day.

Buckeyes dish out new offers

Even with the COVID-19 outbreak closing down shop, Ryan Day and the rest of the Ohio State coaching staff are still hard at work trying to secure talent to add to the Buckeyes future rosters.

Dishing out a long list of scholarships in the recent weeks, Day and crew continued that streak on Friday afternoon by offering a pair of top rated prospects from the class of 2022.

Want to know which highly sought after soon-to-be junior prospects the Buckeyes offered? We have you covered:

Four-star OT Earnest Greene

Class: 2022

Town: Bellflower, CA/St. John Bosco

Size: 6-foot-4, 301 pounds

Other Offers: LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, etc

Rundown: Striking gold with former St. John Bosco standout turned OSU starting guard Wyatt Davis, the Buckeyes are now looking to add another Brave to the offensive line. Not just one of the top lineman in the 2022 class, Greene is considered the 19th overall player in the class, and is starting to put together a list of the who’s-who of college football. A force up front, he was big piece of the puzzle that helped St. John Bosco finish last season off with a final record of 13-1 and another state championship.

Four-star CB Jyaire Brown

Class: 2022

Town: New Orleans, LA/Warren Easton

Size: 6-foot, 165 pounds

Other Offers: LSU, Mississippi State, Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, etc

Rundown: Shut down defenders who can tackle. Those are just some of the words that might come to mind when you think of the type of cornerback Ohio State usually recruits. Brown definitely fits that mold. Turning heads with his play on the field, he impressed scouts and coaches with his 25 pass break ups and two interceptions as a sophomore for the state championship runner ups, Warren Easton Eagles.
