Two verbals in as many days for Ohio State football
JUN 09, 2014 6:03p ET
Summer camp season is paying off for Ohio State as head coach Urban Meyer has picked up two verbal commitments in the past two days.
The latest player to jump on the Buckeye bandwagon is Grant Schmidt, a Scout.com three-star offensive tackle from Sioux Falls, S.D., who pulled the trigger Monday afternoon after an impressive showing at the Buckeyes' camp in Columbus the day before.
"I've had my eyes on an Ohio State offer all along," Schmidt told Scout.com national recruiting analyst Allen Trieu, noting the recent success of the Buckeye offensive under the direction of coach Ed Warinner.
Schmidt also holds offers from Minnesota and Cincinnati, among others, and he is the first offensive lineman to commit to the Buckeyes for the Class of 2015. According to Trieu, Schmidt is a long-term prospect who possesses a prototypical frame and athleticism.
Schmidt's commitment came one day after Tyler Green, a three-star safety prospect from DeMatha Catholic in Hyattsville, Md.
Green also was in Columbus over the weekend for the Buckeyes' camp, and he committed upon receiving his offer from Meyer on Sunday. The 6-2, 215-pound prospect told Scout's Simone Scott he had been in regular contact with first-year OSU assistants Chris Ash and Larry Johnson prior to camping in Columbus.
Schmidt and Green join previous OSU verbal commitments Joey Burrow, a quarterback from Athens, Ohio, Jamel Dean, a cornerback from Cocoa, Fla., and Canton (Ohio) McKinley running back Eric Glover-Williams.
