    HOPING FOR HAMLIN
    Pittsburgh's Damar Hamlin has been to Ohio State three times since July's Friday Night Lights and the country's 13th-ranked cornerback continues to be a big target for the Buckeyes. At 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds, Hamlin is the ideal size for Chris Ash's defensive plans. The Buckeyes like where they stand with the Central Catholic star.

    "He's definitely a priority for us," a source close to the Buckeyes said. "We like him a lot, and there's some thought that we lead for him. He's visited a bunch of times so it makes sense."

    The Buckeyes were in the mix until the end for Jordan Whitehead, a cornerback from Pittsburgh in the 2015 class, but they fell short. Pulling kids out of Pittsburgh is never easy, but it appears right now Hamlin is deciding between Ohio State and Penn State.

    The speculation is that Hamlin could make a decision in the relatively near future.

    Hamlin in talks with OSU
    On Tuesday, it was reported that Hamlin is talking with a few current Ohio State coaches as the Buckeyes are starting to feel their way around this one. Some background: Hamlin, who stands at 6'1, plays his high school ball in Pittsburgh and holds offers from Penn State, Notre, Dame, Michigan, and of course Ohio State. He attended Ohio State's junior day towards the end of January. With how the game of football is evolving, coaches are coveting those long cornerbacks who can jam and run with receivers. Hamlin fits that bill. Hamlin is the fourth-rated player in the state of Pennsylvania. As the summer circuits of camps are coming around, it wouldn't be shocking to see Hamlin crack the top ten at his position. Meyer and company have a long way to go in this one, but seem as well positioned as anyone at this point.

    5. DAMAR HAMLIN // CORNERBACK // PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA
    Last year the Buckeyes went to the wire to try and land Pittsburgh's Jordan Whitehead, and this year's version is Central Catholic's Damar Hamlin. Hamlin is, and has been, at the top of Ohio State's list at the position for a while now, and he's been to Columbus almost 10 times in the last year, indicating he's got significant interest in the Buckeyes. Hamlin has the length and speed that would make him a perfect fit in Ohio State's defensive backfield.

    DAMAR HAMLIN // PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA
    Perhaps the prospect who's been at the top of the list the longest, Pittsburgh Central Catholic's Damar Hamlin is the country's 11th-ranked cornerback. At 6-foot-1, 175-pounds, Hamlin has ideal size for Chris Ash's secondary and above-average speed and length. Ohio State is up against Penn State, Pittsburgh and West Virginia – a fairly common group of top schools for Western Pa. kids – for Hamlin's services, and Penn State may already be full at the cornerback spot. Hamlin has no timeline for a decision and has been to Ohio State for visits since he camped at Friday Night Lights last July.
