As far as the state of Ohio is concerned, it’s officially sale season.
The Buckeyes made three offers Wednesday to various recruits, and a day later OSU made a whopping six offers: three to players in the 2023 class and three to prospects in the 2024 class. Ohio State wide receivers coach Brian Hartline certainly had a busy day in Texas so we’ll start there.
Hartline offers two Texas WRs

– Jonah Wilson (@JonahWilson_) January 20, 2022
Pettaway is a hot prospect in the cycle, ranking as the 42nd best prospect and 8th best wideout in the 2023 class according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. He is the seventh player in Texas.
In eight games for Langham Creek High School (Houston, Texas) last season, Pettaway caught 43 passes for 745 yards, including seven touchdowns. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound standout also returned punts and kicks for Langham Creek. Twenty-four Division I schools have made offers to Pettaway, including Florida, LSU, Texas, Texas A&M, Auburn, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Penn State, Tennessee and USC.
Another four-star wideout, Wilson ranks as the 228th best player and 28th best wideout in the 2023 cycle. In nine games for Dekaney High School (Houston, Texas) as a junior, Wilson had 34 receptions for 469 yards, including eight touchdowns.
If Ryan Day wants to break out any wide receiver reverse pass trick plays in the future, Wilson could be an option to execute them since the 6-foot-1, 195-pound standout has also played quarterback in short bursts. Last season, he completed five of 12 passes for two touchdowns and one interception. Wilson has accumulated 12 Division I deals so far, including LSU, Texas A&M, Purdue, Houston, Baylor, Colorado and Arkansas.
The state of Ohio has now submitted three offers in the last three days to prospective recipients from Texas for 2024 Micha Hudson Got an offer on Tuesday. In the 2023 class, five of Ohio State’s 12 wide-receiver offerings now come from Texas, with the addition of Pettaway and Wilson Jalen Hale, Braylon James and Johntay Cook II.

Georgia 2023 Four Star Linebacker Raul Aguirre was another recipient of an Ohio State bid Thursday morning.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker ranks as the 120th-best player and the 8th-best linebacker in the Class of 2023. In eight games for Whitewater High School (Fayetteville, Georgia) last season, Aguirre totaled 80 tackles (three for the loss) and an average of 10 tackles per game. Aguirre also recorded a sack, an interception and a fumbled recovery.

It’s been a hell of a day for linebackers in the 2024 class Myles Graham. Though he doesn’t yet have a 247Sports rating, Graham’s recruitment officially exploded Thursday afternoon when he received offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Coastal Carolina and Ohio State on the same day.
