    New offer for Scott, Bucks next?

    On Wednesday, new Syracuse Head Coach Dino Babers dropped an offer to a prospect that resides from that same state that he coached in last year. Class of 2018 offensive lineman Blaine Scott from Sciotoville East (OH) was the recipient of an offer from the Orange and the 6'5, 300-pounder was very excited about the news.

    "I was very humbled and excited to receive the offer," Scott said. "I have already been on the phone today with the coaches. All of the staff had just come from Bowling Green, so I was very excited. I look forward to visiting and building relationships within the program."

    The Syracuse offer for Scott now puts him at nine already. The Orange joined Appalachian State, Cincinnati, Duke, Iowa State, James Madison, Kent State, Ohio and Toledo on the offer list for the Buckeye State offensive lineman.

    With that being said, could it be Ohio State to drop a scholarship to Scott next?

    "I feel as if I have a great chance at getting the offer soon," Scott told Land-Grant Holy Land. "Coach [Greg Studrawa] and I have been talking weekly or every other week. It's going really well."

    As you can see, Scott seems to be confident in the possibility of landing an offer from the Buckeyes. This will be something to monitor closely going forward. Right now, Ohio State stands at 100 percent on the 247Sports Crystal Ball for the Portsmouth, Ohio native.

    Ohio State visits an in-state recruit

    The Buckeyes' recruiting staff is keeping true to its word by attacking homegrown talent. Land-Grant's own Austin Kemp, talked earlier about how Ohio State was planning to recruit OL Blaine Scott (Portsmouth, Ohio / Sciotoville) and they did just that this week.

    Scott's high school coach, James Gifford, confirmed a visit by Buckeye coach Greg Studrawa over Twitter Monday.

    The Buckeye's weren't the only school in attendance, as 247Sports' Bill Kurelic reported both Virginia Tech and Ohio University were also present. The 2018 recruit has yet to receive a star ranking on 247Sports, but this is common for high school athletes that are this early in their football careers.

    However, Scott's recruitment has seen a boost recently, receiving offers from Purdue, Indiana, NC State, Rutgers, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Miami (OH) in the last month – as well as a Notre Dame visit back on April 16. Scott has the size, standing at 6 feet 5 inches and 300-pounds, and the potential to become an elite recruit in his class.

    It is always comforting to see Ohio State take advantage of homegrown talent by actively watching them early on in their recruitment process. It gives the team more time to establish relationships and watch how the kid develops.

    BLAINE SCOTT GETS BUCKEYE VISIT

    The Buckeyes have offered one in-state 2018 offensive lineman (Fairfield's Jack Carman) but they continue to look closely at another, Portsmouth East's Blaine Scott.

    "Great visit from (Greg) Studrawa today," East head coach James Gifford told 11W. "He's excited about Blaine. He's looking forward to him performing well at camp."

    Scott has been blowing up lately. He's picked up offers from Purdue, Indiana, Rutgers, NC State, Kentucky and others while making stops at Duke, Notre Dame and others this spring. He's trimmed down and his frame - now at 6-foot-5 and a svelte 300 pounds - is beginning to look the part of a big-time college offensive lineman. Gifford said he's not sure what's holding back some schools back, but that the level of competition at East shouldn't be a problem because it didn't hold Ohio State back from his former teammate, Tyler Gerald.

    "I'm not sure what the hold up is on Blaine," Gifford said. "He's the complete package."

    Gerald earned his Ohio State offer the summer before the start of his junior season and committed immediately. Scott, if he's able to earn that offer next month, may follow a similar path.

    Blaine Scott continuing to hear from Buckeyes regularly

    Ohio State has made Fairfield (Ohio) 2018 offensive lineman Jackson Carman, a five-star prospect, one of their top priorities in next year’s recruiting cycle, but they’ve also continued to talk regularly with Portsmouth East’s Blaine Scott.

    A three-star prospect with 27 scholarship offers, Scott was very busy on the recruiting trail all summer, and that’s continued in recent weeks as he’s made trips to Illinois and Tennessee in the last two weeks. He’s not been back to Columbus since Friday Night Lights, but Scott says he intends on visiting at least once this season.

    “Coach (Ohio State offensive line coach Greg) Studrawa and I text a lot,” Scott said. “I’ll visit for Michigan and probably another game, but I don’t know yet. This Saturday, I’ll be at Kentucky and next Saturday I should be at Clemson.”

    The Buckeyes have been clear with Scott about their interest in him, though they’ve not yet offered. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound tackle for the Tartans – alma mater of current Ohio State freshman Tyler Gerald – continues to be patient and is trying to improve his game.

    “Right now, I’m just doing what I can to be a positive influence (on my team),” Scott said. “We’re trying to go 10-0. I’m working 100 percent on becoming a student of the game.”
