    Early playing time is real for him. I think he can see that.

    Distance is a monumental factor though and not one I think we can overcome.

    The distance will be a huge factor but I also think him being related to Bowen & Togiai(sp?) could also be huge in that regard.

    Ryan Day saying Aloha to Enokk Vimahi in Hawaii today

    The final push for offensive linemen in the Class of 2019 is nearing its end. Earlier this week, Ryan Day and Greg Studrawa — along with Kevin Wilson — visited Dawand Jones and Doug Nester for the final time, using their in-home visit with the two offensive line targets. Today, Day is heading out of the frigid Midwest and is Hawai’i bound to see 4-star offensive guard Enokk Vimahi, who made an official visit to Ohio State last weekend.

    The Buckeyes rarely recruit Hawai’i and the distance between Columbus and Kahuku is one reason: it’s about a 12-hour trip each way, to visit a player and his family for a couple of hours. If you need evidence of how important the country’s seventh-ranked offensive guard is to Ohio State at this point, that may be it.

    Ohio State may be heading toward a commitment from Vimahi, especially as rumors that Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley will not be able to make his own trip to Hawai’i, and if that’s true then it could be a two-team race between the Buckeyes and the USC Trojans for him. Whichever school ends up securing a signature from Vimahi next Wednesday will get just one year of playing time before he takes a two-year religious mission, however.

    That is not deterring the Buckeyes. They believe the 6-foot-4, 270-pound lineman is a future NFL player and know he’d provide them a much needed boost of offensive line depth.

    Is Ohio State the team to beat for Enokk Vimahi?
    As things got less certain with Doug Nester, the Buckeyes threw their hat into the ring for Kahuku, Hawaii’s Enokk Vimahi, offering the athletic offensive lineman in early January. At the time, the country’s seventh-ranked guard had a decision date set — Jan. 19 — and many believing he was set to pick USC while Oklahoma, where he officially visited on the weekend of Jan. 11, was trying to change his mind.

    Then he canceled the commitment plans he had and set a visit for the following weekend, Jan. 25, to Ohio State and just like that, there’s a real sense that the Buckeyes could be the team in front as he nears a Feb. 6 decision.

    Ryan Day flew to Hawaii this past Thursday to leave no doubt: Vimahi is a major priority for the Buckeyes at this point. As Lincoln Riley skipped a visit to Hawaii, he does not appear to a priority for Oklahoma and that leaves a reasonable assumption that this battle is a two-team race between Ohio State and USC.

    A decision is supposed to be made by Monday in this recruitment and though the Buckeyes are late in the game, the effort and energy Ryan Day has put into Vimahi’s recruitment has put them in a real good position to upend the Trojans and their geographical advantage.

    We really need to get him. Our depth is concerning.

    When was the last time we snagged a HI recruit? Lol... This would be pretty impressive. Him being related to two players on the team could be huge for us.

    Looking like Ryan Day stepped to the plate and hit a home run here...
