    BE ON THE LOOKOUT

    Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller three-star junior defensive tackle Aeneas Hawkins has roughly 15 months before National Signing Day 2018, but he's hoping to make a decision sooner rather than later.

    “Hoping to finish things up late winter,” Hawkins told Eleven Warriors.

    The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder is considered the 15th-best player in the state and the No. 30 defensive tackle in the Class of 2018. He currently holds offers from Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Pittsburgh and Tennessee. “

    The three schools recruiting me the hardest are Penn State, Ohio State and Notre Dame,” Hawkins said. “I'm not narrowing it down to just those three yet, but they are some of my favorites.”

    Hawkins took an unofficial visit to Columbus for the Oct. 1 game against Rutgers.

    Aeneas Hawkins set to visit Alabama, still hearing from Ohio State daily
    Ohio State has a commitment from the top defensive tackle in Cincinnati in its 2017 recruiting class – Winton Woods prospect Jerron Cage – and it remains hot in the pursuit of a 2018 prospect from the area as well. Archbishop Moeller 3-star defensive tackle Aeneas Hawkins says he’s in regular contact with a host of Buckeyes coaches.

    “I talk to Larry Johnson every day,” Hawkins told Land of 10. “He’s probably my favorite recruiter in football. Ohio State is one of my favorites. Urban Meyer texts me every other day, and anytime Ohio State comes to Moeller, Kerry Coombs is the one that is there.”

    Ohio State is hosting a handful of its top targets this weekend during a junior day weekend, but Hawkins will not be there.

    “I will probably be there for the next next junior day, and then I’ll get up for a couple spring practices,” Hawkins shared. “This weekend I’m heading to ‘Bama.”

    Listed at 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds on his 247Sports.com profile, Hawkins says he’s working on getting bigger and improving his versatility so that wherever he ends up playing his college football, he can make an impact.

    “I was 265 pounds this morning,” he said. “I’m not in a rush to get heavier. I’m going to put it on the right way to keep my athleticism. Larry Johnson thinks I could play 3-tech or 5-tech. The quickest way to the field might be at a different position, especially at a place like Ohio State where there’s talent everywhere.”

    Aeneas Hawkins | Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller | ★★★
    The lone Ohioan on the list has some serious NFL bloodlines.

    Aeneas Hawkins is the son of former Cincinnati Bearcats/Bengals defensive back Artrell Hawkins and the nephew of current Cleveland Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins, who played at the University of Toledo. The younger Hawkins picked up his first scholarship offer last spring (from Florida State) and has been a steady-rising prospect in the national rankings ever since. He remains a 3-star talent but has an offer list that says he’s much better than that.

    Ohio State is one of those offers, and Hawkins has told Land of 10 that he talks with Larry Johnson every day, certainly signifying that the Buckeyes are interested in a more than cursory manner. Hawkins will make a college decision in May and the Buckeyes, along with Cincinnati, Michigan State and Notre Dame, are among the favorites as of today.

    If he commits to the Buckeyes, it will be a solid first answer to the defensive tackle question in 2018.
