The 2021 recruitment class in the state of Ohio is developing into another incredible stretch. The class currently sits second in the nation, just behind Alabama. In addition, the horse chestnuts are not allowed to be taken as there are still two main objectives in the game: Five star defensive ending JT Tuimoloau and Four-star outside linebacker Raesjon Davis.
We briefly touched on Davis’ weekend visit to Columbus in yesterday’s state secrets. The previous LSU commit has been classified as USC Lean since leaving the Tigers, but things may have changed this past weekend.
Davis went to Twitter expressing his excitement after the visit and mentioned that he “might be back soon”. The response to that tweet led some to believe that the state of Ohio had jumped in the driver’s seat for its recruitment. Now, however, we have one more look at the cryptic ending to his tweet.
Davis’ father took to Twitter Monday morning to express his gratitude to Ohio State and it again appears that the visit was as successful as possible. More importantly, the elder Davis mentioned that a second visit might be in the works ahead of National Signing Day on February 3rd.
While the clarification may not be the best scenario for those hoping Davis’ tweet is about a commitment, there is no denying that the Ohio State’s chances of getting a commitment from a blue chip perspective, are as good as never before. The state of Ohio always looked like they would play second fiddle to USC in Davis’ recruitment. Now, however, there seems to be a chance the horse chestnuts could steal him in the next week and a half.
It will be interesting to see if the native Californian can make the overland trip in such a short time. If Davis and his family decide to go on the second trip, it should be assumed that the gap between the two schools is not as great as once thought.
The state of Ohio only has one obligation as a linebacker at the four-star ILB in 2021 Reid Carrico. However, the position is already one of the strengths in the junior class with commitments of four stars Gabe Powers, CJ Hicks and Dasan McCullough and recently made the top five schools for five star LB.
