    6. Jamaree Salyer, OG

    Among any offensive lineman, Salyer was the most consistent on Sunday. He showed power in the run game but he also showed really good hand placement and punch in pass-rush one-on-ones. Though Salyer is powerful and thick, he's deceptively quick with great feet.

    Jamaree Salyer, (Atlanta, GA/Pace Academy) — Salyer was overpowering during this event. Incredibly strong from head to toe, he also displayed great footwork and terrific instincts.Quick at the snap and powerful with his punch, he either kept defenders off-balance or got into their bodies to alter their rush.

    CHERRY ON TOP OF A PLATE FULL OF PANCAKES

    Ohio State is in the process of building a massive haul along the offensive line for 2018, with four-star tackle Max Wray and four-star center/guard Matthew Jones already in the fold and five-star tackle Jackson Carman among the staff's top priorities. A prospect who could potentially push that group from really, really good to great is Atlanta Pace Academy five-star guard Jamaree Salyer, who hopes to get back to campus soon.

    “I'm just very interested to see how the season will go,” Salyer told Eleven Warriors when asked about his interest in the Buckeyes. “I have to get back sometime — maybe for Friday Night Lights. Trying to create a relationship with the staff.”

    The 6-foot-4, 342-pound Salyer is considered the top-rated offensive guard and No. 9 prospect nationally. He made his first and only visit to Columbus for the thrilling double-overtime win over Michigan in November.

    “[It was] obviously a really wild game. I had a great time,” Salyer said. “Just being able to see how the atmosphere was, it was definitely the loudest stadium I've ever been in. I just had a great time.”

    This weekend at The Opening Finals in Beaverton, Oregon, not only provided Salyer with the opportunity to compete against some of the country's best prospects, but a chance to get to know several different Ohio State commits and targets. They were all pretty locked in on their team and individual competitions, though, so they weren't recruiting him too hard.

    “They've signed some great guys with right attitudes,” Salyer said.

    The same could be said for Ohio State offensive line coach Greg Studrawa, who has taken a more relaxed approach when it comes to the Buckeyes' pursuit of Salyer.

    “Coach [Urban] Meyer he's a little more forceful with his recruiting while coach Stud is just like, 'Figure it out, but I feel like you'll come home to us,'” Salyer said.

    Salyer, who doesn't plan to make a decision on his future until he takes all five official visits, will choose between offers from Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Stanford. As for what will be the deciding factor?

    “Just being comfortable with the school,” he said. “Being there with my parents and having them be comfortable with the school.”

    AN UPHILL CLIMB

    Atlanta Pace Academy five-star offensive guard Jamaree Salyer has long eyed Ohio State for an official visit this fall, but put his recruitment on the backburner for a while as he geared up for his senior season. And now with the Knights now three games in, the 6-foot-4, 342-pounder has shifted his focus to wrapping up the recruiting process altogether.

    On Tuesday morning, Salyer told Rivals.com he'll take official visits to Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Stanford. And it should come as no suprise given the way he raved about the Buckeyes this summer.

    “I'm just very interested to see how the season will go,” Salyer told Eleven Warriors at Nike Football's The Opening Finals back in July “I have to get back sometime — maybe for Friday Night Lights. Trying to create a relationship with the staff.”

    That visit never happened, but his lone trip to Columbus for last year's thrilling double-overtime win over Michigan is something that continues to resonate in the back of his mind.

    “[It was] obviously a really wild game. I had a great time,” Salyer said. “Just being able to see how the atmosphere was, it was definitely the loudest stadium I've ever been in. I just had a great time.”

    The Buckeyes are currently looking up at the Bulldogs and Tigers in the race to land Salyer's pledge, which should be expected given the proximity to his hometown and the fact that he's been to Athens and Clemson more times than any of his other top schools. But Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and offensive line coach Greg Studrawa constantly reach out and feel confident he'll end up in Columbus when it comes time for him to make his decision on Dec. 20.

    “Stud is just like, 'Figure it out, but I feel like you'll come home to us,'” Salyer said.

    Salyer hasn't decided which game he'll attend, though it's likely to be the Oct. 28 matchup with Penn State — as is the case for pretty much every other four- and five-star prospect with an offer from Ohio State. It's hard to envision the Buckeyes surpassing Clemson or Georgia, though.

    That’s some kind of security blanket, pal

    When you’re the country’s best offensive line prospect, you can say what you want and no one is going to try and tell you that you shouldn’t.

    We’ve seen that already this month with Jackson Carman, the 5-star offensive lineman from Fairfield, Ohio, who drew some flack for his opinions on Ohio State’s quarterback play after the Oklahoma loss. Carman, of course, got some pushback from Kirk Herbstreit and others, but his standing with the Buckeyes hasn’t been affected.

    So, when Jamaree Salyer, the country’s No. 1 overall lineman in the Class of 2018 says Ohio State is nothing but a “safety net” for him behind Clemson and Georgia, you just shrug it off and say, “Welp, that’s OK with us.”

    That’s what Salyer told DawgNation.com’s Jeff Sentell on Thursday.

    “I kind of have two that have pushed past the others on the list in Georgia and Clemson,” Salyer said. “I am still considering Ohio State as a safety net just in case something tragic goes on with both schools. I really highly doubt that given how those two [teams] are playing right now.”

    So basically, there’s no chance for Salyer and Ohio State, but that won’t stop him from having the school pay for him to take an official visit — likely on Oct. 28 — if he wants to go.

    So, why let a kid you know isn’t going to pick your school take an official visit? Because some players, like Salyer, are just that good. You take the swing and see what happens, period.

    Jamaree Salyer set to visit

    Ohio State will get the first crack at Atlanta Pace 5-star offensive lineman Jamaree Salyer. The nation’s No. 1 guard will take his first official visit Oct. 28 when the Buckeyes host Penn State. He’s also considering Clemson, Florida and Georgia and will visit those three as well.

    This will be Salyer’s second visit to Ohio State after seeing the Buckeyes take down Michigan in 2016. He told Rivals.com that he’s excited to be back in Columbus.

    “My first visit there was crazy,” Salyer said. “I didn’t get a lot of time with the coaches on that visit, so I want to be around them more this time. I want to talk with them, learn more about the plan they have for me and just get a better feel for how it is there.

    “I want to spend time with players, talk to them some and just see what they have to say. I know about Ohio State’s history and what they have done on the field, so this visit is big for me to just get to know the people better.”
