Some of the best high school prospects in the country are going to play in the Under Armour All-American Game 2018, and many of these will make their college commitments during the televised game. Experts believe that OSU might get a few fresh athletes out of this event.
A few highly regarded recruits are on the Buckeyes' radar. Four-star DE Tyreke Smith is a prospect from Cleveland Heights that might sign with OSU in order to attend college in the state. Smith was already promoting his commitment time on Twitter. He's the fourth-ranked weak-side end in his class and is the third-ranked prospect in the state of Ohio. Unfortunately for Urban Meyer, Smith might instead elect to attend Penn State in spite of the high hopes that he'll come to OSU.
Meyer had already been able to convince a three-star defensive end, Alex Williams, to come to OSU instead of WVU, so he might be able to work his magic again. Smith isn't the only prospect under consideration, however.
Jayson Oweh, a four-state strong-side DE out of New Jersey, is also the third-ranked prospect in his state. He's considered the fifth strong-side DE in the entire recruiting class. Penn State has tried to recruit him just like they did with Smith. In fact, experts from 247sports feel that he will more than likely head to PSU. Nevertheless, Meyer's ability to lure Smith over has made many at OSU hopeful that he can also encourage Oweh to join the Buckeyes organization. Oweh will more than likely announce his commitment shortly after the clock strikes six.
