    IN ENEMY TERRITORY

    Ohio State offered a scholarship on Friday night to Phenix City, Alabama, Central four-star wide receiver Justyn Ross.

    The 6-foot-3, 185-pound Ross is considered the fourth-best wideout and No. 31 prospect overall in the Class of 2018. He holds more than 20 offers from programs such as Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame and USC.

    Ross was named first-team all-state last season after he recorded 40 receptions for more than 700 yards and eight touchdowns to help the Red Devils to the state semifinals.

    Buckeyes offer Alabama’s best prospect
    Ohio State has not had much luck recruiting the southern U.S. (outside of Florida and Georgia) but its staff is working hard to take advantage of its national appeal. To that end, the Buckeyes offered Alabama’s best 2018 prospect over the weekend.

    Justyn Ross is the country’s 31st-ranked overall prospect and fourth-ranked wide receiver out of Phenix City and, yes, he has an Alabama offer already. He is, according to well-placed sources connected to Alabama recruiting, close friends with 2017 4-star prospect Markail Benton, a teammate of his at Central High School who signed with Alabama two weeks ago. The Ohio State offer was the 21st for Ross.

    Usually when a player from Alabama gets an offer from Alabama (or Auburn, and in this case, both) he will make a decision quickly between the two schools. Ross is, according to the same source, favoring the Tide and the Tigers but is in no hurry to make a college choice. His reasoning? He’s waiting for his mother to come home.

    From SECCountry.com’s Chris Kirschner:

    Alabama’s No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2018, is in no rush to make a commitment mainly because his mother is stationed in Kuwait with the National Guard, and she won’t get back to the states until June 2017.

    Just because she’s located over 7,000 miles away, it doesn’t mean she’s not aware of what’s going on with her son’s recruitment.

    “She’s still in group text conversations with coaches, so she’s still very involved with my recruitment,” Ross told SEC Country. “She’s told me that when the day comes to commit that I’m going to be the one to make the decision and not her.”

    It’s early in the process but it appears to be a battle the Buckeyes are unlikely to win.

    From Keith Niebuhr: "WR Justyn Ross, a top 50 national recruit. Might be the most athletic kid out here. Alabama-Auburn battle."

    FOREIGN TERRITORY

    Let's get this out of the way: Ohio State hasn't signed a player from the state of Alabama since defensive lineman Donte Wheat in 1981. And with the Crimson Tide's run of seven-consecutive recruiting titles, you'd think it would be harder than ever for the Buckeyes to go into their backyard and pull a top-rated prospect they also want.

    Sooner than later, though, it's going to happen. Might that be player be Phenix City Central four-star wide receiver Justyn Ross, who included Ohio State in his Top 11 on Friday night alongside Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Mississippi State and Ole Miss and USC.

    The 6-foot-3, 185-pound Ross is considered the fifth-best wideout and No. 28 prospect overall in the Class of 2018. He was named first-team all-state last season after he recorded 40 receptions for more than 700 yards and eight touchdowns to help the Red Devils to the state semifinals.

    Ohio State four-star dual-threat quarterback commit Emory Jones recently said Ross was his top receiver target. Can he help the Buckeyes reel him in? Unlikely, but not impossible.
