    BACK AGAIN

    Springfield four-star tight end Leonard Taylor and four-star cornerback Moses Douglass also made their umpteenth trip to Columbus for Saturday's game.

    β€œI always enjoy myself at Ohio State,” Taylor told Eleven Warriors.

    The 6-foot-6, 246-pound Taylor, who is considered the 14th-best tight end and No. 293 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, has flown a bit under the radar in recent months. Once thought to be a priority for the staff, his lack of a true position β€” he plays quarterback in high school and some schools are recruiting him at defensive tackle β€” makes it unclear how he fits into the Buckeyes' plans.

    Taylor acknowledged the staff isn't recruiting him very much at this point in time, but Ohio State remains among his top schools nonetheless. And why wouldn't they? He's one of just a handful of in-state prospects with an offer from the Buckeyes, and he's in no hurry to make a decision.

    Alabama, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan, Oklahoma, Penn State, Tennessee and Wisconsin were all included in his Top 10 back in early July, and it's widely assumed he'll eventually land with the Wildcats. But Taylor hopes Ohio State still has room to add him to the class late in the process.

    The Buckeyes are recruiting him along the defensive line, so it's hard to see a scenario where that happens. After all, Idaho four-star Tommy Togiai and Blinn Junior College's Antwuan Jackson sit ahead of him on the priority chart.
