The Ohio State football team and Brian Hartline are starting to make waves on the wide receiver recruiting front as a number of key recruitments are starting to trend the Buckeyes' way.

At the top of that list is an elite 2026 talent from Charlotte, North Carolina. Brody Keefe recently confirmed that the Buckeyes are in his list of top three schools with Tennessee and an un-named school. While not ranked yet, as 247Sports is still working on the 26' class, Keefe is seen to be one of the premier receiver talents in the class.

Keefe will be in attendance on April 13th for the Ohio State Spring game, a key recruiting weekend for the Buckeyes. It will be his second visit to Columbus, as he was at the Penn State game last October, which left an impression on him, via Eleven Warriors:

"Obviously, that was a crazy atmosphere, It was just tremendous and I think everything about it was really good, especially the fans. Atmosphere is one of the biggest things for me."

Hopefully, the April visit goes well, and Brian Hartline can add his second 26' commitment to the class, joining Chris Henry Jr.

Another top target for Hartline, four-star 2025 receiver Vernell Brown, will be visiting campus on March 19th. The Orlando, Florida native is currently the No. 132 overall player in 247Sports composite rankings and has Ohio State high on his list of final choices along with Florida, Florida State, and Miami.

This will also be Brown's second visit to Columbus as he was in attendance for the Michigan State game last November.

Lastly, four-star 2025 prospect Taz Williams, of Red Oak, Texas announced an April 8th visit to Ohio State. Williams also will be visiting Texas A&M, Alabama, Michigan, and Texas this Spring so competition for his services will be fierce.

Hopefully, Hartline can start garnering some commitments to finish off this 25' class strong and possibly get the 26' class started off on the right foot.
