National signing day is just two weeks away, and while the Ohio State Buckeyes will be very happy just to get their entire 2013 recruiting class inked, they do want one or two more additions.

The Buckeyes already have a consensus top-five class this season with talented players at pretty much all positions on the field.

They already have 22 recruits, but may only have room for one or two more.

Here is a look at the players the Buckeyes are still after and who they hope to add by national signing day.

OT Dan Skipper


To say that Tennessee soft verbal and OSU target Dan Skipper is a tower would be an accurate assessment. Skipper is a 6'10" tackle prospect who the Buckeyes would love to add to an offensive line that lacks depth.

They already have two offensive linemen committed, but would like one more because OSU loses four starting offensive linemen after this season.

Skipper visited OSU last weekend, and Bucknuts' Dave Biddle believes that former Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema might be Urban Meyer's biggest competition for his services.

After backing off of Shelton Gibson, Meyer turned his attention to several other receiver prospects who may be plan-B recruits but still good talents.

One of those is New Smyrna Beach, Fla., WR James Clark, whom the Buckeyes offered just last week.

Clark may be a Clemson lean, according to Michael Burns of, but Meyer plans on visiting him and will do what he can to try to get him to make an official visit.

If that happens, anything may be possible.

RB Dontre Wilson


No one was probably more happy to see Chip Kelly bolt from Oregon to the NFL than Urban Meyer, and Dontre Wilson is the reason why.

Wilson, an Oregon commit since May 2012, has been wavering and may be down to either staying with UO or going to Ohio State or Oklahoma State, according to Brandon Castel of

Staying with the Ducks may be the likely result, but Meyer has been aggressive in going after the speedster out of DeSoto, Texas. Wilson will visit Ohio State this weekend, where OSU might throw the full-court press at him.

OSU already has a speedy back in Ezekiel Elliott, but as we know from Meyer's days at Florida, there is no such thing as having too many game-breakers.

S Vonn Bell

No. 1 on the priority list for Urban Meyer for the next two weeks may be the most sought after defensive back in the country in S Vonn Bell.

Bell already visited OSU and Alabama, and will visit Tennessee this weekend, (via Stephen Hargis of Times Free Press). While the Crimson Tide might be the favorite, don't underestimate UT and new coach Butch Jones, who needs a signature recruit to win over a fanbase that has not see much success in quite a while.

He told's Marc Givler that he doesn't have a leader at this time, but as we've seen quite a few times, that can all change in the next two weeks.

The next two weeks get to pit Meyer and Nick Saban against each other in a battle for a tremendous talent. Whatever happens, it will be fun to watch.
