  WR LChristian Smith Committed to Ohio State
Posted by: Steve - 08-30-2017, 04:44 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

LChristianSmith

Huber Heights Wayne Wide Receiver L’Christian (Blue) Smith committed to Ohio State this past week over offers from many top programs including Cincinnati, Kentucky, Michigan, Alabama, and Tennessee. Cincinnati and Kentucky were the other two finalist but Ohio State had always been his dream school. He also has a teammate, Alex Reigelsperger, headed to the Wildcats, who offered him first so the decision was difficult. UK has brought in 36 recruits from Ohio after picking up a couple of coaches from the Youngstown area five years ago.

The Announcement

Smith made the announcement prior to a televised game on ESPN against Gibsonia Pennsylvania Pine-Richland. (Wayne lost 41-0)

The Camp That Set Everything in Motion

Early in the Spring, Smith didn’t feel the Buckeyes were making him a priority and felt they would play him at Tight End if he did enroll in the program. But Smith was able to talk with Urban Meyer about his plans and became confortable in what the Buckeyes had to offer the in-state prospect.

He became comfortable with the program and the coaching staff during a camp visit in June. Depending on his size during his career at Ohio State he might play wide receiver but he might also play the h-back position. He is currently 6’6” and 205 lbs., a big target. No plans to move him to Tight End when he gets to Columbus.

  Running Back JK Dobbins Could See Many Touches In Ohio State Opener
Posted by: Steve - 08-23-2017, 03:14 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

JKDobbins

True freshman JK Dobbins has sprinted ahead of the depth chart for the Buckeyes at running back this fall and might get to play quite a bit against Indiana (August 31st) in the opener with Mike Weber sidelined with a hamstring issue or with him in the game. With Mike Weber and Demario McCall already set to provide depth at running back in the Spring, Dobbins entered the team early from high school and began to show what he is capable of. Now in the fall, he is showing not only great talent but the ability to block well and the understand the plays that Ohio State wants to run this year.

  Quarterback Joe Burrow Breaks Hand Bone
Posted by: Steve - 08-23-2017, 03:14 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

dmuE8TcO_400x400

Joe Burrow, backup quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes, will miss the beginning of the 2017 season due to a broken bone in his throwing hand. The Athens Ohio redshirted sophomore broke the bone in practice performing a fake handoff early this week and had surgery to set the bone yesterday. He will miss the first games of the season, his return date is uncertain.

Burrow played in 5 games last year for the Buckeyes, competing 22 passes for 226 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also ran for one score. Burrow appeared to be the player that could come into a game if JT Barrett went down with an injury and manage the remainder due to his experience. Now the Buckeyes will need to look to Dwayne Haskins for all snaps without Barrett.

2014 Season

The quarterbacks are always aware that their time might come in the next game depending on injury. With 2014 as a reminder of this when Braxton Miller, JT Barrett, and Cardale Jones all got time as the first string quarterback on the way to the National Championship. Miller, going out in the preseason with a shoulder issue. JT Barrett, breaking an ankle against Michigan. And Jones winning the National Title after three post-season starts.

  Ohio State Pursuing 2018 Point Guard Noah Locke
Posted by: Steve - 08-18-2017, 10:06 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

NoahLocke

Ohio State is looking to add a highly ranked point guard to their 2018 class with Noah Locke from Owings Mills Maryland. Locke is a 6’2” guard rated the 15th best at his position in the country. He will visit the Buckeyes on August 22nd with previous visits going to Michigan, Florida, Xavier and Providence. Kansas was also looking to sign Locke but did not get an official visit from him. Michigan has only one scholarship open for the 2018 class and is hosting a number of other recruits. Ohio State is in great need of a point guard and has a thin roster at this time, would be a good spot for Locke.

  Ohio State Football Walk-Ons Given Scholarships
Posted by: Steve - 08-17-2017, 02:47 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

ElijaahGoins

Ohio State football walk-ons Elijaah Goins and Zach Turnure both where given senior season scholarships this week. The actual event happened after practice on Saturday with Urban Meyer making the announcement to the whole team. This was very similar to last season when Joe Burger and Craig Fada were put on scholarship after three years of playing and a red-shirt freshman year. Burger and Fada were special teams standouts and that is the same role Goins and Turnure have now.

Goins, from Concord NC, has had a long journey starting at Safety, switching to Corner Back, and ending up as a Receiver. He appeared in 12 games last year for OSU. He called his mother quickly after practice to tell her about the scholarship. He plans to continue working part-time at CVS as he pursues a pharmacy degree.

  Justin Ahrens Considering Ohio State Again
Posted by: Steve - 08-15-2017, 02:16 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

DGp_YnnWsAEBN2K

Once an Ohio State verbal commitment to play basketball for Thad Matta and Ohio State, Versailles Ohio standout Justin Ahrens has the Buckeyes in his top 6 for consideration. In fact, Ahrens was on campus this week visiting with new head coach Chris Holtmann.

De-Commitment

Small Forward Justin Ahrens had been a commitment to the Ohio State University for almost a year before news broke that Thad Matta was being let go. His teammate Darius Bazley was also set to join Matta in 2018 and become a part of the rebuilding that needed to be done. Bazley actually jumped ship earlier as the Buckeyes struggled in Big 10 play and did not make the post-season last year. But Ahrens waited until the coaching change to start looking around. Now he has a new scholarship offer from former Butler coach Chris Holtmann and is considering OSU in a recent top 6 that he provided to reporters. Holtmann has jumped on the recruiting trail and been able to bring in some good talent, ranking the current class atop the Big Ten.

Dinwiddie Virginia linebacker K'Vaughan Pope announces his commitment to the Ohio State Buckeyes

K’Vaughan Pope Announcement

K'Vaughan Pope realized he would become anxious on stage, before the TV cameras and all his teammates, while he was announcing his college commitment. This is why he asked K'ymon, his younger brother, to read the statement he had written to the crowd in the Dinwiddie County HS auditorium.

Once his brother had completed reading the statement, K'Vaughan read the last paragraph. He declared his commitment to the Buckeyes, and the audience in the assembly hall went crazy. Then, he threw a scarlet and grey football jersey over his shoulders after standing up.

Marcus Hooker Announces Commitment to the Buckeyes

Within a day of being offered a place at Ohio State, the three star Pennsylvanian cornerback, Marcus Hooker, accepted the offer on Thursday.

Hooker, who is six feet tall and 185 pounds, has a cornerback rating of fifty-two and a prospect rating of 587 from the 2018 Class. He chose the Buckeyes ahead of offers from eleven other programs like Cincinnati, Bowling Green, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Toledo, West Virginia and Temple.

Hooker was on campus on several occasions to see his older brother Malik, who gained All American honors after a redshirt season as a sophomore, when he achieved seven interceptions, eighty-four tackles, 5.5 loss tackles and a record breaking three touchdown interceptions. He signed up to the NFL Draft for 2017, and was chosen as the fifteenth pick to play for the Indianapolis Colts.
