Ohio State Football: Will Meyer Find 1 Last WR to Fill out '13 Recruiting Class?

With national signing day just a week and a half away, Urban Meyer is working overtime to plug the last few holes in Ohio State's roster.

The offensive line is still an area where Meyer would like to add some depth, and a commitment from either Dan Skipper (3-star offensive tackle) or Cameron Hunt (4-star offensive guard) would do just that.

Meyer and the coaching staff will hold a spot for 4-star safety Vonn Bell, although a commitment from the highly touted defensive back seems unlikely with Alabama rumored to be the favorite (via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution).

Despite Ohio State's other needs, though, Meyer's top priority between now and February 6 is finding one last wide receiver/playmaker to close out the class.

After losing out on 4-star receiver James Quick—who committed to Louisville earlier this month—Meyer has been frantically looking for a receiver to join Ohio State's already stellar 2013 recruiting class.

Two of Meyer's top receiver targets visited Columbus this weekend.

Dontre Wilson, a 4-star all-purpose back out of DeSoto, Texas, is currently committed to Oregon, but decided to look at his options when Chip Kelly left Eugene to become the Philadelphia Eagles' head coach. 

Wilson had an unbelievable senior season, piling up over 2,600 yards of total offense to go along with 46 touchdowns. Wilson's playmaking ability at the running back position or slotted at wide receiver is something Meyer desperately wants at Ohio State, and he reportedly had a great time at Ohio State (via 247sports.com) this past weekend.

You can watch Wilson's highlight film here:

Meyer has come on strong for James Clark, another 4-star prospect out of New Smyrna Beach, Fla. 

Both Meyer and offensive coordinator Tom Herman traveled to Florida for an in-home visit with Clark last week, which paid off as the talented receiver agreed to visit Ohio State's campus.

According to Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch, Clark's visit went very well: 

Clark is considering Clemson, Florida, Nebraska, Northwestern and Ohio State, but will not make a decision until national signing day.

Which WR/Playmaker will Meyer add to Ohio State's 2013 recruiting class?

Meyer also recently offered 4-star prospect Ryan Timmons out of Frankfort, Ky. 

Timmons, like Wilson, was an all-purpose back in high school who exploded his senior season. Timmons racked up 1,306 rushing yards and 1,004 receiving yards with 42 total touchdowns in 2013.

Arkansas, Wisconsin, Florida, Cal and Missouri have also made offers to Timmons, and the 4-star prospect will make his decision on February 5, the day before national signing day.

If Meyer signs one more receiver in Ohio State's 2013 recruiting class, it will likely be one of these three prospects.
