After a day off on the recruiting trail, the Buckeye contingent returned to Ohio State’s campus Friday for their final home stand of the season.
The team has yet to announce who will join them for the rest of the homecoming weekend, but the team has already started filling out its depth chart.
First, the team is taking calls from potential recruits.
On Wednesday, the school said that it has sent the following four players to the Buc-Nebraska game: safety Dontae Johnson, defensive end Darrin Jenkins, offensive tackle Matt Wahl, and linebacker Connor McGovern.
Johnson has been in the program since 2014, and he spent his first two years at the position before being taken in the second round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Arizona Cardinals.
Jenkins is a four-star prospect and a four star recruit in the 247Sports Composite.
Wahl is an ESPN 300 prospect who was ranked as the No. 10 player in the country by Scout.
McGovern was a fourth-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2018.
The Buckeyes also have five commitments to announce Friday night: defensive tackle Alex Dunlap, offensive guard Kyle Moore, linebacker Chris O’Brien, and defensive end Johnathan Wren.
They have the option of sending the players back to Columbus on Saturday.
Here’s a breakdown of the incoming Buckeyes, via ESPN: RB Jake Butt, a five-star recruit from North Carolina, is a three-star and an ESPN 200 prospect.
QB Tyler Bray, a four and a three star recruit from Ohio, is also a three and a two star prospect.
WR Michael Floyd, a three (!) star recruit, is an all-state player and a five star prospect and is an eight-star player.
WR Jordan Burroughs, a 4-star safety from Georgia, is the No 6 player in Georgia.
RB Jake Simon, a two-star guard from Ohio State, is one of the Buckey’s top offensive linemen.
The rest of their incoming commitments are listed below.
