Ohio State Buckeyes Back In The NFL Combine

NoahBrownNFLCombine

It's that time of year again. The time when the true football fans often get their first peek at what the next crop of potential stars will look like. The scouting combine is a good starting point to see what kind of measurable goods the young men have to offer to possible NFL suitors. The Buckeyes just had their visit with the combine officials and the results are now in. Overall it seems like a successful visit for many of the Buckeyes class at this year's NFL Combine.

Noah Brown, the six foot two 222 pound wide receiver, is a tall strong ox of a pass catcher. The reach is a lengthy 33 1/4 inch reach with quite large hands that has the strength behind it with 19 reps on the bench press. Running a 7 second cone drill and speedy 4.33 second 40 yard dash Brown can help many teams in the league with his size and speed. Brown's durability has been called into question since he suffered a broken leg that left him sidelined for a year. Last year, he did blossom some, but many scouts say they feel he is just starting to scratch the surface of his development due to his injury. His upside is much larger than his potential injury risk. He could easily go to a team like the Patriots, or Packers, but could drop to the second round because of the injury. When asked of his injury Brown returned with the determination of a warrior saying he has just as much to prove as anybody else.

In just one week after the day Ohio State signed the second overall 2017 recruiting class, they are trying to get the 2018 top talent to come to the school.

Jaiden Woodbey, a four-star safety, recently visited Ohio State University for the junior day hosted by the Buckeyes. Woodbey shared via Twitter that he will be joining Urban Meyer and the team along with another Ohio State University recruit, Wyatt Davis.

Jalen Hurd To Visit Ohio State This Weekend

JalenHurd

Sources shared with recruiting sites that Jalen Hurd, a former Tennessee running back, is set to visit Ohio State this weekend.

Although Hurd intends to transfer from Tennessee in October, he is eligible for the draft and rumors are being thrown around that he may go pro. However, Hurd did not make the list of draft-eligible underclassmen. Hurd, who is 6 feet 4 inches and 240 pounds, did mention that he is open to playing wide receiver or tight end at his next school. However, his future position would depend on the offensive lineup at that school.

During recruitment, Hurd was ranked in the Class of 2014 as Number 40 in the country. While playing as a Volunteer at Tennessee for three seasons, Hurd amassed 20 touchdowns via 589 carries and 2,635 yards in 33 games. In addition, Hurd had six scores and 67 receptions from 492 yards. This past season, he played in seven games before deciding to leave the program.

Kendall Sheffield Confirmed To Go To Ohio State

KendallSheffield

Kendall Sheffield should be heading to Ohio State University based on reports confirmed by his father and other sources. Sheffield, who is 185 pounds and 6 feet tall, was accompanied by his parents to Ohio State during the weekend of November 26 when the Buckeyes went to double overtime to beat Michigan 30-27. Sheffield was considering Texas, Texas A&M and Ohio State, and it seemed like Sheffield was not favoring Texas A&M. However, Texas seemed to be more of a favorite over Ohio State because of the location. Texas did seem to relax their push; therefore, Ohio State became the leading place to prospect for Sheffield to move to the next level.

Cam Akers is Now Florida State's Hottest Property

CamAkers

Cam Akers now belongs to Florida State, to the dismay of Mississippi, which spent years trying to sign up the high school football superstar. Ole Miss meant to make Cam Akers the cornerstone of the team, and it is disappointing that the state failed to get what it wanted.

Cam Akers is one of four sought-after football athletes that the clubs are dying to get their hands on. At any rate, the feeling is mutual for both the Seminoles and Cam Akers, because it is uncertain if the Florida football team can accord Cam Akers the same star-treatment status as the other team had promised.

JeffreyOkudah

Ohio State's Top Remaining Target Sets Date

Urban Meyer may not know if Jeffrey Okudah (South Grand Prairie/Grand Prairie, TX) is coming to play for him next season, but he knows when he will find out. Okudah has announced that he will make his decision during the U.S. Army All-American game.

The cornerback is the number one ranked player at his position in the class of 2017. He is also ranked as the seventh overall senior in his class. Okudah is sought after. He garnered over 30 scholarship offers from some of the top programs in the nation. The final 3 schools he is considering are Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Florida State.

Schools want him for a good reason. He is pretty much ideally built to play his position. Jeffrey is 6'1" and weighs 190 pounds. he also possesses blazing speed and blanketing coverage skills. Urban Meyer would love to have him in his stifling defensive scheme.

Wide Receiver Paul Woods Interested in Becoming a Buckeye

PaulWoodsCanisius

Not only did the Buckeyes pull off a win against Northwestern... they also impressed a recruit.

Several weekends ago, Paul Woods, a 2018 wide receiver, was in Columbus and had a "great" time during his visit. Though he attended Friday Night Lights throughout the summer, this was the first game that Woods had seen while in Columbus.

At present, Woods currently has one offer coming from Boston College. However, with Woods coming in at 6 foot 1, 170 pounds, combined with his impressive skill set, he will likely be one of the top wide receivers in his class as his senior year comes around. Woods is an avid Buckeyes fan, holding them in high regard and these two factors would make receiving an offers from Ohio State a big accomplishment for the young athlete. Though the Buckeyes are on to him early, it is just a matter of time until they are surrounded by a bevy of other top programs eager to snag the WR for their coming lineups.

Meyer Lands Top Linebacker Out Of Texas Baron Browning

Baron Browning

Urban Meyer Lands Top Recruit for 2017 Class

Ohio State garners one of the top recruiting classes in the nation on an annual basis. This is the impetus for the team consistently contending for the national title. The current recruiting class was no exception. It got even better today when Baron Browning, one of the top high school linebackers in the country, committed to the Buckeyes.

The Senior from Kennedale, TX was recruited by some of the top programs in the nation, including Alabama. He is 6-foot-3 and weighs 230. He is the ideal size to play linebacker in Meyer's system. He also possesses blazing speed off of the edge.

Browning is the sole linebacker in OSU's 2017 class. Antjuan Simmons committed to the school but later rescinded. OSU has 16 total scholarship players coming in next season.

Right now, Alabama has the top class, but Ohio State is close on their heels with this latest signing. Browning is the number 2 rated outside linebacker in the country. He is the 3rd ranked player overall in Texas, the most competitive state in the nation. Browning is a 5-star recruit.

QB Danny Clark De-commits from Ohio State Class

DannyClark

Quarterback Danny Clark has separated from the Buckeyes recruiting class just as analysts suspected. They had a feeling when Tate Martell committed to Ohio State that something like that was going to happen. Their presumption manifested this week.

Clark posted a comment on his Twitter page that explained that he was de-committing from his promise to Ohio State University. He announced that he would be opening his recruitment for the first time in a long while.

The analysts never felt that Clark had the skill set that was necessary to be a quarterback. The fact that he had previously led his team to the state championship had no bearing on his overall suitability so they felt.
