There are many high profile recruits sitting atop the Buckeye recruiting board. Who will they land between now and February 5th? Lets take a look.
Staying in-state, two more defensive linemen could be headed to Columbus. Sian Cotton, a defensive tackle from Akron and defensive end Shawn Crable from Massilon, are prime for Ohio State. Cotton is looking at several schools while Ohio State will battle Pittsburgh, Michigan, USC and Miami for Crable.
Two out of state defensive ends will give Ohio State a serious look. Stanley McClover, from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, is now down to three schools – Ohio State, Auburn and Miami. All three schools have ties to this athletic rush end. Claude "Turk" McBride, from Cemden, New Jersey, has already visited Ohio State and Tennessee. He will take some other January visits but McBride is still gushing about his November visit to Columbus.
The word out of Kentucky is that Louisville sensation Michael Bush could land at Ohio State. Bush is a terrific athlete that got votes for All-State at five different positions. He is an incredible receiver that now wants to play quarterback. Ira Guilford, another standout in the secondary, is leaning to Ohio State over Notre Dame, Penn State, Rutgers, and Syracuse, while tight end Jamesley Jean, if offered a scholarship, could end up a Buckeye as well.
That's a lot of big name players on the Tressel's board and only a handful of spots open. Anyway you look at it, Ohio State should cash in on a very successful season all the way around.
