    Ohio State football recruiting update as of February 5, 2017. Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes are gearing up for another big haul in the 2018 class.


    It’s no secret that Urban Meyer values the talent located in the state of Florida, and he’s proven that time and time again.

    The Buckeyes signed four players out of the Sunshine State in the 2017 recruiting class, and they’re going back to the well for the 2018 cycle, too. In the days leading up to National Signing Day, Ohio State extended a scholarship offer to 4-star safety Gurvan Hall, from West Palm Beach, Florida.

    Hall, the No. 21 safety and No. 268 overall player in the 2018 class, also holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Miami and others. But the Hurricanes are going to be a real threat in keeping the 4-star prospect close to home and away from the Buckeyes.

    Ohio State also offered 4-star recruit Tyreke Smith, the No. 6 defensive end and No. 175 overall player in the nation. His former high school teammate, Jaylen Harris, signed with the Buckeyes last Wednesday.

    Here’s how the rest of Ohio State’s 2018 recruiting class is shaping up.
