    MAKING HIM A PRIORITY

    While several former Ohio State players ran through drills for more than 115 NFL personnel on Thursday afternoon, the staff was also looking toward the future by hosting Bradenton, Florida, IMG Academy four-star cornerback Houston Griffith and his parents for an unofficial visit.

    “It went well. I got a chance to watch practice and sit down with coach [Urban] Meyer, [Kerry] Coombs and [Greg] Schiano,” Griffith told Eleven Warriors. “With coach Meyer, we just talked life after football. Coach Coombs, we just talked football. Coach Meyer said he wants me to be a Buckeye when it's all said and done.”

    The 6-foot-1, 192-pound Griffith — son of former Illinois fullback and current Big Ten Network analyst Howard Griffith — is considered the seventh-best corner and No. 47 prospect overall in the Class of 2018. He holds nearly three dozen offers from programs such as Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA and USC. Yet Ohio State is undoubtedly one of, if not the team to beat.

    “The tradition the university has in general [stands out],” Griffith said. “Just the fact that you would compete against the best in practice and play the best. And to compete for a national championship.”

    Griffith will head to Penn State on Friday but has no other visits scheduled. He plans to make his college announcement sometime before his senior season.

    Griffith sees Ohio State again in what could be final trip to Columbus before a decision

    Ohio State hosted one of its top 2018 defensive back targets on Thursday for what could be the final time before he makes his college decision.

    “It went well,” IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) 4-star prospect Houston Griffith shared with Land of 10. “I got a chance to sit down and watch the practice. What really stands out to me is just how they compete.”

    The country’s seventh-ranked cornerback is no stranger to Columbus. Originally from Chicago, Griffith and his family used the visit Thursday to talk with head coach Urban Meyer and assistant coaches Greg Schiano and Kerry Coombs. The Buckeyes message has been consistent.

    “When I sat down in (Meyer’s) office, with him, Coombs and Schiano, they made it clear to me and my family that they want me in their program,” Griffith said.

    The 6-foot-1, 192-pound Griffith, who was scheduled to visit Penn State on Friday, said he wants to make a decision sometime before his senior season begins this fall.

    “I have begun narrowing things down,” he said. “I’d like to decide before the season, but there’s no pressure from any school. (Ohio State) is one of the top schools on my list.”

    NOT SO FAST, MY FRIENDS

    If you're someone who uses 247Sports' Crystal Ball to gauge the possibility of an incoming commitment, you may have been on high alert thanks to the site's director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong. Following the above-mentioned Vincent's pledge on Sunday night, Wiltfong put in a prediction for Ohio State to land four-star cornerback Houston Griffith, his teammate at Bradenton, Florida, IMG Academy.

    However, 6-foot-1, 192-pound Griffith — son of former Illinois fullback and current Big Ten Network analyst Howard Griffith — has no plans to make a decision on his future any time soon.

    "I'm committing in the summer," Griffith told Eleven Warriors.

    The Ascenders kicked off spring practice this afternoon and he is currently focused on that.

    Griffith, the seventh-best corner and No. 47 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, was on campus last week. And though he holds nearly three dozen offers from programs such as Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA and USC, Ohio State is undoubtedly one of, if not the team to beat when he finally does make a decision this summer.

    “The tradition the university has in general [stands out],” Griffith told Eleven Warriors. “Just the fact that you would compete against the best in practice and play the best. And to compete for a national championship.”
