Urban Meyer's recruiting pull is truly national, as he has two blue-chip defenders putting the Buckeyes very high on their lists: Plano (Tex.) LB Mike Mitchell and Rossville (Ga.) S Vonn Bell.
Mitchell was the star of The Opening, claiming the SPARQ championship with his incredible athleticism at the linebacker position, something Ohio State still needs.
He has the Buckeyes at the top of his list, and some feel he could commit on a visit, which hasn't been scheduled yet per Eleven Warriors.
When it comes to Bell, he would be a great fit at Ohio State because of the Buckeyes' need for a big-time safety. OSU is in Bell's top three, but so are Alabama and Tennessee.
The only thing working for OSU is that Alabama recruited two safeties last year and the Buckeyes might give him a faster track to playing sooner.
Tennessee is another team to keep an eye on as well. But Bell is coming to Columbus the week of the Nebraska game, so a good visit might be able to help sway Bell to Columbus.
