KanePatterson

Kane Patterson chose Ohio State. The linebacker from Christ Presbyterian Academy announced that he would join the Buckeyes. He decided that the Big Ten program was better for him than Tennessee, Alabama and Texas A&M.

Why Ohio State

Patterson said that OSU made his family part of the process right from the start. This played a huge role in his decision to choose OSU over the other colleges. He mentioned how officials from OSU talked and texted him all the time.

He added that his family was also there for him right from the beginning. He went on to say that coach Urban Meyer met his entire family, and this impressed him.

Patterson said he and Meyer developed a relationship. He also developed relationships with Tony Alford, Billy Davis and Mark Pantoni, who is the director of player personnel. He maintained relationships and contact with all of them during the recruiting process.

Dwan Mathis Shifts Loyalties To Ohio State

DwanMathisd

Dwan Mathis Switches from MSU to the Buckeyes

Dwan Mathis, Oak Park native, has made the decision to shift his dedication from Michigan State to Ohio State. It wasn't an easy decision, only made after careful consideration. Mathis is a four star prospect and ranks at 251 in his class. Having committed to MSU in 2017, Mathis, at just under six and a half feet tall and weighing in at 195 pounds has now become the sole quarterback in the new class of OSU.

The Ohio State Visit

Dwan's father, Terence Mathis, explained that the Spartans granted Dwan permission to visit Ohio State, and he, along with his family, made the visit on Friday. Coach Urban Meyer, and his staff, as well as the impressive cast of dual threat quarterbacks their program has produced (J.T. Barrett, Braxton Miller, Terrelle Pryor) provided the strong impetus to help Dwan shift his loyalties. In addition, he also had the chance to visit with another running quarterback new to the Buckeyes, Dwayne Haskins. This past November, Haskins was able to demonstrate his skills when he led Ohio's team to victory over Michigan when he stepped in for Barrett when he was injured.

Cade Stover Finally Commits To Ohio State

CadeStover

Why did Cade Stover Wait

It was shocking to many that it took so long for four-star linebacker Cade Stover to commit to the Buckeyes. Last spring, Ohio State offered a scholarship to Stover that most felt he would take in a matter of a few days. Cade was not in a rush to commit to any school at that time. He said he was enjoying the recruitment process. It took him nearly a year before he committed to Ohio State.

What Finally Sealed the Deal with Stover

Stover said he finally decided on Ohio State because of the family atmosphere. He had over two dozen offers from other schools that include Penn State, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma, Michigan, Notre Dame and Texas. Reportedly, Ohio State had their sites on Stover for quite some time. Along with Cade, there were only a few other sophomores invited to attend the January 2017 Junior Day. The Buckeyes made an offer to Stover several weeks later when he returned to the campus to watch spring practice. Over the next few months, Stover returned to Ohio State to strengthen his relationship with head coach Urban Meyer.

Noah Potter And Ohio State

Potter

Last Monday night would come to a close with a commitment to Ohio from Noah Potter. The 6'5", 250 pound defensive end hails from mentor Ohio and is the number 8 prospect for the 2019 class in Ohio.

This is the fifth commitment that the Buckeyes have received for their 2019 roster. Noah Potter is the first commitment by a defensive lineman. Noah Potter will be joining a former teammate that is also on the team, Ryan Jacoby. Potter's brother, Micah, is already a sophomore at Ohio State and plays for the basketball team.

Potter is a physically large defensive end yet he maintains a high level of athleticism. These combined attributes make him a formidable defensive player. However, the Buckeyes hope to further develop this physic and hope to help him add 20 to 30 pounds as he gets older. The coaches recognize his talents already and aim to help him set that bar even higher. It is believed that Potter will see time in the coming season considering the looming departure for Nick Bosa to the Draft.

JackCappabianca

Ohio State is making dreams come true for several in-state seniors by giving them opportunities to be preferred walk-ons as the Buckeyes wrap up recruiting. For almost all of these seniors, the opportunity to play for Ohio State is hard to pass up even if it means giving up full scholarships to other less prestigious programs. A preferred walk-on can use the coaching staff, the training facilities and gear the same as an athlete on scholarship. This season, Ohio State adds a dozen preferred walk-ons, and those are:

Jack Cappabianca -- 6-foot-2, 220-pound reserve linebacker at Berlin Center Western Reserve, first-team all-district.

Abe Myers - 6-foot-2, 220-pound Big Walnut linebacker, honorable mention all-county.

Davion Johnson -- Bedford wide receiver, 5-foot-8, 160 pounds, second-team all-state.

Xavier Johnson -- a 6-foot-1, 215-pound wide receiver from Cincinnati Summit Country Day School, Division V honorable mention.

Zaid Hamdan -- Mason defensive tackle, 6-foot, 263 pounds

Dominic Dimaccio -- 5-foot-9, 160-pound Missouri kicker, second-team All-Ohio selection.

Chris Olave Yet Another Receiver For Buckeyes

ChrisOlave

Chris Olave, the four-star receiver, is the latest recruit for the Ohio State Buckeyes 2018 roster. He is the 54th receiver in the nation and the 24th recruit for Ohio States 2018 season. He will join ranks with L'Christian Smith, Kamryn Babb, and Cameron Brown, the other four-star players that are part of the 2018 recruiting class.

One might wonder why Ohio State chose to fill another receiver position. With five other players already slated for the receiver position, it seems as if this is a saturated position. This might be true of the current year, but the decision was made to prepare for 2019.

In 2019, the Buckeyes will lose seniors, Johnnie Dixon, Paris Campbell, and Terry McLaurin. Making matters worse, Ben Victor, K.J. Hill, and Austin Mack are all juniors that will be eligible for the draft depending on their season. Even though these players are still juniors, it is feasible, that if offered a chance to go pro, at least one will take that offer. So, if you do the math, this is a good way to prepare for the potential 2019 losses.

Friday In Columbus Means Great Things In Store

TylerFriday

Buckeyes fans got some colossal news on Friday when four star defensive end Tyler Friday announced his official commitment to Ohio State. He is quite a find as the eighty-sixth overall player in the country, the fourth best defensive tackle, and the second best player in the entire state of New Jersey.

He joins the other four star defensive end Tyreke Smith on the line. The Buckeyes plan on playing Friday at the defensive end position instead of inside at the tackle position. This is some much needed relief from the anxiety attack that was hitting most Buckeye fans where it hurts. After losing five star defensive end Brenton Cox many fans thought it was too late for Urban Meyer and his staff to find a suitable replacement. To the critics and doubters, Coach Meyer said move over I can handle this. They may have lost a great player, but to come back with two equally talented and tenacious defenders on the line is quite a feat in its own right.

Jerome Baker Going To The Draft

JeromeBakerOhioState

Ohio State says goodbye to a future pro bowl player in linebacker Jerome Baker. On Monday he announced his intentions to declare for the draft this year. This is a blow to the team's defense as Baker was a pivotal leader in the defensive box.

After already hearing that Denzel Ward and Sam Hubbard were declaring for the draft Ohio State fans are sad to hear about losing another great player from their team. The departure is bittersweet for both sides after Baker posted a tweet thanking the Buckeye fans for all the love and support, and he hoped to have success at the next level.
