The Ohio State football program is trying to build its 2025 recruiting class. They only have 13 commitments right now, but that will soon change. They have a lot of prospects who are projected to commit to the Buckeyes in the coming weeks and months.

Summer is the busiest recruiting time of the year for the Buckeyes. Camp season really gets rolling once the month of May starts. That's when recruits visit with coaches who are there to see them. Ohio State hosts a couple of camps themselves in the Summer too.

This is the time of year when recruits have time to take visits to campuses. Ohio State has quite a few visits scheduled from some really good players. There are three that are the most important coming up. The first one is from a stud offensive lineman who they are trying to make a last push for.

1. David Sanders Jr.

The second-best recruit in the country, David Sanders Jr. is a tackle from Charlotte, North Carolina. He has offers from all of the big programs and is a five-star recruit the Buckeyes would love to have. It would be the first five-star the Buckeyes have signed since Paris Johnson Jr.

Justin Frye's recruiting has been a weak spot for the Buckeyes. Quite frankly, I'm surprised he didn't lose his job in offseason. The only reason he stayed is because Chip Kelly became the new offensive coordinator and that is Frye's old boss. He likes him for some reason.

If Frye can land Sanders Jr., that would be a great reason to have kept him. He visits Ohio State on June 21st and is the lat visit he has scheduled. That could be the last chance the Buckeyes have to impress him enough to make him want to be a part of the Ohio State football program.

Right now, Sanders Jr. is projected to go to Clemson. Ohio State is going to use that June visit to push hard for him to change his mind. He would immediately upgrade a unit that is the weakest on the team at the moment and has the least amount of depth.

The second player on this list is another five-star prospect who the Buckeyes have a better chance of landing.
