Ohio State Buckeyes Land Offensive Lineman Wyatt Davis

WyattDavis

Many recruiting followers were surprised when Ohio State stopped their efforts for the in-state recruit, Joel Honigford, who currently held 29 offers from various other schools.

It became clear this week, however, when the Buckeyes announced that they had received a commitment from OL Wyatt Davis from St. Bosco High in Bellflower, Ca. This commitment surprised many who had not anticipated this news.

Davis, who is a 5-star recruiting prospect, listed his top recruiting school considerations 2 months ago and Ohio State was not included or mentioned by him as a school he was considering.

Last weekend, however, the situation changed quickly after Davis took a visit to Ohio State and the Buckeyes were suddenly included in his new Top-8 list.

JK Dobbins Commits To The Ohio State Buckeyes

JK Dobbins

JK Dobbins, the all-purpose back from La Grange, TX has committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes. Although this announcement was a surprise to many, Dobbins confirmed the commitment on his Twitter page.

Most people thought that this 5'10 200 pound high school player was going to commit to the Texas Longhorns or either the Oklahoma Sooners. So, when it comes to committing to the Ohio Buckeyes, no one saw this coming. However, Dobbins had already said that he was making an early decision. Also, the head coach Urban Meyer did not offer JK Dobbins until a couple of weeks ago. This is even stranger to say he hasn't made recent trips to Columbus. His last known trip to Columbus was back in May.

Ohio State Fans Get A Glimpse Of The Future

A sneak peek at the future of Buckeyes football will come this weekend, as many of the verbally committed Ohio State recruits will play in one of the four All-American games.

Several other prospects that could be leaning toward OSU will also announce where they plan to play college ball during the weekend. This could make for a lot of optimistic Buckeyes fans, or it could lead to more misery.

Offense-Defense All-American Bowl
Sunday, December 30

The Offense-Defense All-American Bowl was held on December 30 in Houston's Reliant Stadium. Two future Buckeyes played in the game.

Ohio State fans have known they were gaining Jayme Thompson since April, 2011, but this game gave them the first chance to see the kid they hope will bring depth to a secondary that is losing its biggest play-maker. Thompson's big plays in the state championship game helped his Central Catholic High School to defeat Trotwood-Madison for the trophy.

Taivon Jacobs, a Buckeyes commitment from Maryland, also played in the game.

Under Armour All-America Game
Friday, January 4 at 5 p.m. ET

The Under Armour All-America Game is only in its sixth year, but it was grown to include some of the most talented high school players in the country and is known for being a heck of a game.

The highlight of this game for Ohio State fans will be that five future Buckeyes are all suiting up for Team Nitro. This quintet includes defensive end Joey Bosa, cornerback Cam Burrows, WR/ATH Jalin Marshall, TE Marcus Baugh and DB Gareon Conley.

In addition, ILB Trey Johnson plans to officially commit during the game. Many feel he is leaning toward State, where he could be on the field as soon as 2013.

The game will also showcase OL Logan Tuley-Tillman who burned his Ohio State letter and committed to Michigan. DE Robert Nkemdiche, the No. 1 ranked player in the country will also be playing.

Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl
Friday, January 4 at 9 p.m. ET

The second Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl will be held in the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles immediately following the Under Armour All-America Game.

While the game does not feature any committed Ohio State Recruits, RB Corn Elder will be playing. This Tennessee native is considering the Buckeyes in addition to several other schools. It is widely believed he is leaning toward UCLA.

Michigan Camp Gives Players Access to Coaches

A local camp outside of Detroit Michigan called the Sound Mind Sound Body camp (sponsored by Adidas) was help mid-week and allowed kids from all over the country to travel to Southfield high school to camp with some of the best coaches in the area. Urban Meyer took the entire OSU staff to the event and hopes he will get some recruiting wins in Michigan territory for their efforts. When he first heard of the camp he thought it was an NCAA violation for college coaches to travel into Detroit to coach at a camp, but Ohio State’s [outstanding and flawless] compliance department gave him the go-ahead.
