Ohio State had a very good month of recruiting for the 2015 class in the month of June, and now throughout the rest of the summer, they’ll look to make it even better. One of the targets that could provide a huge boost would be five-star running back Damien Harris out of Berea, Kentucky, who is seriously considering coming to Columbus.
Just how serious is that consideration, though? Well, it seems to be serious enough that Mike Farrell of Rivals believes that Urban Meyer and company are in the lead at this point to land the top back in the class.

Right now, according to the 247 Sports Crystal Ball predictions, they seem to agree with their competitor as they have the Buckeyes in the lead also with 68% of the predictions leaning toward Ohio State.
Among the other schools currently in the mix are the Alabama Crimson Tide, Auburn Tigers and the Kentucky Wildcats.
As Farrell stated, Harris will take his official visits to the other schools, but if Columbus has made a good enough impression, then they should be in good shape to add the best running back in the nation.
