Ohio State hosting 5 uncommitted prospects in final big visit weekend

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Ohio State is ranked No. 2 in 247Sports's team recruiting rankings, and the Buckeyes will attempt to improve their class with some key visits this weekend.

The Ohio State Buckeyes will host five uncommitted prospects this weekend as part of a push to close out a fine 2013 recruiting class. In addition to the five uncommitted players, three recruits who have already chosen the Buckeyes will be visiting, too.

The five uncommitted prospects, led by safety Vonn Bell, are all rated as four-stars or better. In addition to Bell who ranks as a five-star, four-star athletes Cornelius Elder and Christopher Worley, four-star wide receiver Shelton Gibson, and four-star running back Ryan Timmons will be in Columbus.

The committed players visiting this weekend are four-star defensive end Joey Bosa, four-star tight end Marcus Baugh and two-star punter Johnny Townsend.

According to 247Sports, Ohio State currently has the No. 2-ranked recruiting class in the country, trailing only Alabama. Rivals ranks the Buckeyes at No. 3 behind Florida and Notre Dame.

Urban Meyer is trying to close out his first full year at Ohio State with a bang. He led the Buckeyes to a perfect 12-0 record in 2012, but NCAA sanctions prevented the Buckeyes from playing in the Big Ten Championship Game and, possibly, the BCS Championship Game.
