CREATING SEPARATION College football’s recruiting dead period runs through July 24, and Ohio State will waste no time in getting prospects to campus the following weekend. That includes Akron Archbishop Hoban four-star athlete DeaMonte Trayanum, who told Eleven Warriors he will be on campus for an unofficial visit on July 27. He’ll be accompanied by his mother and uncle. This will mark the third trip to Columbus for the 5-foot-11, 215-pound Trayanum, who is one of just four in-state prospects from the Class of 2020 to hold an offer from the Buckeyes. His most recent visit, which coincided with Friday Night Lights, has helped Ohio State separate itself from some of the other programs recruiting him, including Boston College, Michigan, Notre Dame, Purdue, Stanford, West Virginia and Wisconsin. “I’m just getting more comfortable every time I go down there,” Trayanum said. Trayanum has continued to build a strong relationship with Meyer and running backs coach Tony Alford, and the two were seemingly attached at the hip during the camp. He’s also been in contact with Day. All that said, there has been a lot of discussion of whether Trayanum — similar to four-star commit Steele Chambers — would be better suited at running back or linebacker. Nothing is set in stone just yet, but it’s clear which he’d prefer. “They’re leaving it up to me, but I’m leaning more toward offense,” Trayanum said. Trayanum will visit Clemson the following day, and an offer from the Tigers could shake things up in his recruitment. But there’s no doubt he’s getting closer to a decision, and I anticipate the Buckeyes will have some good news sooner rather than later on that front.
