Jamel Dean Commits to Ohio State: Buckeyes Land 2015 4-Star DB

Ohio State added a standout defender to its 2015 recruiting class Sunday. The Buckeyes secured a commitment from 247Sports 4-star cornerback Jamel Dean, providing a building block for Urban Meyer’s future prospect haul. Dean delivered the news on Twitter, expressing his excitement about creating a verbal pact with the BCS title contender. The 6’1″, 180-pound playmaker stars at Cocoa High School on the east coast of Florida. He visited Columbus in late October, watching the Buckeyes beat Penn State in emphatic fashion. The experience was an eye-opener for Dean, according to his conversation with Cleveland.com writer Ari Wasserman. “It was unlike anything I have ever seen,” Dean told Wasserman. “I looked up into the stadium, and it was really big, and there wasn’t one empty seat in the entire place. I never really saw anything like that in my entire life.” His offer list is already quite expansive and features Florida, Temple, Mississippi State and Miami. Dean attended a June camp in Gainesville, where he received an offer from the Gators. Aside from football, Dean is already an accomplished sprinter and long-jumper. He was named the All-Space Coast Track and Field Athlete of the Year. He is listed as the nation’s No. 16 junior cornerback and Florida’s No. 23 overall 2015 prospect in 247Sports’ composite rankings. Dean is the second member of Ohio State’s 2015 class. He joins fellow 4-star cornerback Eric…

Breaking Down 4-star Dual-Threat QB Brandon Harris’ Final Three Schools

Brandon Harris is the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the nation, according to the 247Sports composite rankings, and he’s ready to decide between his final three schools on July 18th. Gary Laney of ESPN.com (ESPN Insider subscription required) reports that Harris will commit to either Ohio State, LSU or Auburn on the 18th: On Monday, he announced that the final three schools he’s considering are LSU, Ohio State and Auburn. He’ll pick which one he’ll attend at 2 p.m. on July 18 at Parkway High School. That list is whittled down from the seven he said he was considering after his high school’s spring game in May. Texas A&M, Alabama, Baylor and Ole Miss were also on that list. Here’s why Harris said his final three made the cut: Ohio State: “Urban Meyer. And their ability to develop quarterbacks.” LSU: “A top 10 program every year.” Auburn: “Same

Does Michigan, Michigan State or Ohio State Hold Edge for 4-Star Jamarco Jones?

The world of college football recruiting is slaphappy about predictions, but in the case of 4-star offensive tackle Jamarco Jones from Chicago, Ill., his recruiting race looks to be too close to comfortably call. Jones has long been thought of as an Ohio State lean—take a look at the unanimous Ohio State predictions in his 247Sports Crystal Ball—but as everyone who follows recruiting should know, you just never really know what’s going on in the mind of these recruits. Jared Shanker of ESPN—who reports Jones’ decision will take place at 2 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 27th—got some inside information on what Jones thinks about OSU heading into his decision though: Considered an Ohio State lean for quite some time and projected to pick the Buckeyes on the Hot Board, Jones has built a strong relationship with Urban Meyer and assistant Mike Vrabel. Although Vrabel is the defensive line coach, he recruits the Chicago area, and Jones has been the Buckeyes’…

What New Ohio State Commit 4-star Jalyn Holmes Brings to Buckeyes

Jalyn Holmes, 4-star weak-side defensive end, committed to Ohio State days after an unofficial visit to Columbus. Holmes, the No. 4 player at his position according to the 247Sports composite rankings, represents Urban Meyer’s 11th 2014 commitment. He hails from Lake Taylor High School in Norfolk, Va., and he’s the No. 4 player from the state. Considering the talent coming out of Virginia this year, that says a lot about him. Holmes took to Twitter to emphatically announce his commitment: I’m committed to THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY— Jalyn Holmes #⃣1⃣1⃣ (@JayHolmes_) June 21, 2013 He then sent out a tweet that clearly stated his goal while at Ohio State: GO BUCKEYES !!!!!!!!!! Lets get this title !!!!! #BuckeyeNation STAND UP— Jalyn Holmes #⃣1⃣1⃣ (@JayHolmes_) June 21, 2013 The good news for Holmes is, if a national championship is his goal, he made a great choice in committing to Ohio State. What exactly will Holmes be bringing…

Does SEC Hold Edge in 4-Star Trent Harris’ Newly Released Top 6 Schools?

There’s simply no way around the fact that the SEC is the best conference in college football right now, but that does not mean that the SEC has an advantage in every recruiting race. In the case of 4-star weak-side defensive end Trent Harris, the SEC is prominent on his newly minted top-six list, but don’t just assume that the SEC has the edge. Derek Tyson of ESPN.com (subscription required) reports on Harris’ top six: The 6-foot-2, 227-pound athlete said Florida, Georgia, Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State and Vanderbilt are his final six schools. Harris said he chose those six schools because they all have what he is looking for in academics and athletics. “Those schools are standing out because from the ones I have been to they have great football environments,” he said, “and they are all like families and care about the players and have good coaches and produce players to the league.” Harris also explains what he’s

What 5-Star LB Raekwon McMillan’s Visit to Florida Means for Ohio State

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

What Ohio State Must Pitch to 6’5" 4-Star WR Dallis Todd During Unofficial Visit

Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes have the chance to take a very early lead in the recruitment of one of the more interesting wide receivers in the 2014 class: Dallis Todd . Todd has elite potential as a wideout, if only because of his size. He’s 6’5”, 210 pounds and he’s ranked as the No. 30 wide receiver in the 2014 class (247Sports Composite). Like I said, though, he has the potential to be one of the better wideouts from this class. Ohio State just recently offered the big recruit a scholarship, and he’s already developed a strong recruiting relationship with a member of the staff, according to Marc Givler of BuckeyeGrove .com: California is a state where several Ohio State assistants all pitch in to recruit the area but Todd has developed a strong relationship already with one Buckeye assistant. “I talk with coach (Tim) Hinton,” Todd explained. “We…
