Ohio State at the Very Top for 2016 QB Dwayne Haskins

The quarterback position is arguably the biggest position to recruit for every recruiting class.  Coaches spend many hours traveling to watch quarterbacks throw in front of them.  The 2016 QB class is already a deep class and some of the top quarterbacks have Ohio State at the top or around the top 5.  Dwayne Haskins has Ohio State at the VERY top.  The 6-2 quarterback from Maryland  has offers from many of the top programs across the nation including Ohio State, Florida State, Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Tennessee.  One of those stands out to Haskins and that is Ohio State.  Dwayne told me the reason he loves Ohio State so much is because of what the program has to offer and because of the tradition.  He recently took a visit to Columbus which he came away very impressed, and added to his overall feel of Ohio State.

“I sat down and talked with the staff a lot,” Haskins said of his visit to Ohio State.  “I walked around the campus, got to go to the school store as well.  I love the atmosphere at Ohio State overall.”

Haskins had a very good time on his visit to Ohio State.  I asked him what they told him about playing there and he told me that they love him as a quarterback. “They said that I have a lot of potential that I have not tapped into yet but I already show great skills,” Haskins said of what the staff thinks of him.  Haskins and Ohio State seem to have a very strong relationship.  I think that feeling of love is mutual between Haskins and Ohio State.

As for the rest of the summer, he is making a Florida swing, attending the Rivals Camp in Jacksonville, Florida, one of the most prestigious underclassmen camps, and then visiting Florida State and Florida.  He is not sure if he is going to make it back up to Ohio State for Friday Night Lights but he is trying to work that out.  He wants to be a Sports Broadcaster when his football career is over, but from what school is he going to receive his degree? Haskins told me you’ll know after this season.  Haskins is very excited about the chance to play football for Ohio State.  I know a lot of quarterbacks are interested in Ohio State for 2016, but I think Haskins is going to be the quarterback of the class. He loves everything Ohio State has to offer and I think he is going to be a Buckeye when he announces after the season.  I am excited to see his recruitment and his game develop over the next couple of seasons.
