Brandon Harris named his top seven. Demarre Kitt waxed poetic about his top three. Demetrius Knox booked his official visit and a slew of offers went out — and we mean a slew. Just another week in the life of Ohio State. Here’s a look at what went down in yet another busy week of Buckeyes recruiting. On Saturday, ESPN 150 athlete Dravon Henry said Pittsburgh isn’t the sure thing everyone thinks it is, as he’s giving serious thought to the Panthers, Ohio State, Penn State and West Virginia.
It’s time to dip into the BuckeyeNation recruiting mailbag and answer some of your questions. We’ll try to give everyone a chance to get their questions answered. We encourage you to send your questions by Twitter at @bbournival, by e-mail at email@example.com or by posting a question in the Horseshoe Pit forum. @JKing4483: Demarre Kitt, Raekwon McMillan, Da’Shawn Hand, Jabrill Peppers. How are the Ohio State Buckeyes looking there?
On Monday, BuckeyeNation looked at the next possible five commitments Ohio State might land. With Urban Meyer being Urban Meyer, the two-time national champion is only going after the best of the best. That means the Buckeyes not only will butt heads in recruiting with the SEC, but places like Oregon and USC, as well. With that in mind, here are five players Ohio State is after who likely will find a home some place else. Before reading the five, understand the Buckeyes are still very much in the running for players like offensive tackle Jamarco Jones (Chicago/De La Salle), wide receiver Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga.

BuckeyeNation: Even though quarterback Deshaun Watson said he’ll stay a quarterback for Clemson, I still think Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga.
Throughout the next few months, BuckeyeNation will look further into the list of juniors offered by Ohio State. We’ll give as much detail as we can and go behind the scenes to see why these Class of 2014 standouts are so attractive to the Buckeyes. Next on the list of wide receivers is standout Demarre Kitt, who had an incredible visit with the Buckeyes this month. Vitals: Kitt (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) is 6 foot and 196 pounds. Status: Once a Georgia commit, he opened his recruitment back up in October and has the Buckeyes high on his list along with Tennessee.
Some very strong names have been on Ohio State’s campus over the past week — Raekwon McMillan (Hinesville, Ga./Liberty County) and Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) most notably. Kitt is on campus until Sunday, but he’ll have plenty of company. To be blunt, Buckeyes fans won’t be able to trip and fall without landing on an ESPN Watch List recruit or big-time target on Saturday. The biggest names from the Buckeye State are no strangers to those who follow Ohio high school football, as Buckeyes commit and running back Parris Campbell Jr.
Coming off a junior season in which he caught 76 passes for 1,236 yards and 11 touchdowns, returned a punt for a touchdown, and helped his team to a 15-0 record and AAAA state championship, ESPN Watch List wideout Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) has become one of the most sought after class of 2014 prospects in the Southeast. As it stands now, two programs are on top for the 6-foot-1, 185-pound junior. “Ohio State and Clemson are my top two,” Kitt said.
Nick Glass is a top safety in the class of 2014 from Atlanta (GA) at St. Pius X Catholic High School. Glass is already committed to Georgia but plans on taking visits still. The safety was one of the first offers to go out in the class of 2014 from Ohio State. What is the latest on Glass? A week or two ago I exchanged texts with Glass that concluded with him telling me he remained committed to Georgia, however, he would be taking visits to Ohio State and Clemson. A tweet from Glass last night: @ Nick_Glass24 Visiting # OhioState this summer. I’m ready for it. I also exchanged a few texts last night with Nick Glass. He informed me that him, Orlando Brown Jr., and Demarre Kitt, all 2014 Georgia high schoolers with Buckeye offers, would be visiting Ohio State on July 9th. Glass, Kitt, and Brown will also be visiting Michigan, Auburn, Clemson, North Carolina, South
