Raekwon McMillan has appeared to be quite the Ohio State lean heading into the summer of the 2014 recruiting cycle, but one major SEC program could give the Buckeyes some issues moving forward. McMillan, a 5-star linebacker, has visited Ohio State multiple times, and the Buckeyes are the top team on his 247Sports interest list. A recent visit to Florida seems to have really caught his attention though, according to Jeff Barlis of ESPN.com: “It was a great visit,” the ESPN 150 prospect said. “Haven’t been here in a while, so came back down here to talk to coach [Will] Muschamp and coach [D.J.] Durkin again. We just talked about coming to play here, filling Jon Bostic’s role, stepping in as the next middle linebacker to play under him, playing under a defensive coach, stuff like that.” Barlis reports that McMillan plans to
Ohio State and head coach Urban Meyer don’t need to worry about whether or not 5-star defensive end Da’Shawn Hand will unofficially visit this weekend. If he does, he does, and that’s great…

ESPN 60 point guard Tyus Jones (Apple Valley, Minn./Apple Valley) has eliminated North Carolina from his list and will consider seven schools, according to a report from Minnesota’s local CBS affiliate. Jones will now decide between Baylor, Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Michigan State, Minnesota and Ohio State. The elimination of the Tar Heels does not come as a surprise as North Carolina received a verbal commitment from ESPN 60 point guard Joel Berry (Apopka, Fla.
Each week this spring, RecruitingNation will take a closer look at some of the nation’s top Class of 2014 prospects from the ESPN Watch List. This week we kick things off with Charlotte (N.C.) Christian tight end Jeb Blazevich. Few people — well, other than astute recruiters — knew who Jeb Blazevich was last summer. Then the offers started pouring in. Blazevich was a self-described average receiver before he started eating — a lot.
After scoring the No. 1-ranked defensive backfield in the nation in 2013, the question becomes can Ohio State do it again? While the Buckeyes missed out Wednesday on safety Quin Blanding (Virginia Beach, Va./Bayside), who chose Virginia over Ohio State, the team certainly isn’t backing down from adding to an already-solid unit.

With the 2014 recruiting season in full swing, the Buckeyes have come out swinging for the fence at the linebacker position. Of the 11 inside and outside linebackers offered, eight appear on the ESPN Watch List.
