Running Back JK Dobbins Could See Many Touches In Ohio State Opener

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.

Ohio State Pursuing 2018 Point Guard Noah Locke

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.

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

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.

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.

Lyle Left Ohio On Bad Terms

JaQuanLyle

Ohio State Basketball point guard JaQuan Lyle left the team last April. There was no reason given from his side as of yet, but an Ohio State representative put out a statement that indicated that he had quit the team April eleventh. Along with that, he was arrested on a Saturday morning on three misdemeanor charges. The charges include criminal mischief, public drunkenness, and disorderly conduct.

It is a shame that the young man ran into these problems since he had such a promising future. After 66 career collegiate games with Ohio State with an appealing stat line it is safe to say the young man's future is in big jeopardy. Averaging about eleven points per game with four and a half assists and a solid four rebounds a game Ohio State will certainly be missing this young man on the court. After this year's loss to Rutgers in the Big10 tournament a source hold said he would definitely be back next year.
