2018 tight end prospect Jeremy Ruckert announced his top 13 list in a very interesting way prior to his junior season and, now, his recruiting process is in high gear. Ruckert, who ranks as the No. 2 tight end in the country according to 247Sports composite rankings, recently visited Columbus to check out Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Following that visit, Ruckert spoke to 247Sports and had this to say about his time in Ohio:
“It was a good trip. I brought my girlfriend, my mom, and my dad. They had a great time. Coach Meyer was with me the whole time. We got to go out with the coaches, including Coach Wilson and Coach Schiano, as well as a couple of players and recruits that were there. It was a good visit.”
To that end, the 6-foot-5, 230-pound tight end from Lindenhurst High School (N.Y.) stated that Ohio State is “definitely at the top of the list of (his) top schools” and that could be an important theme in the coming months. Ruckert has previously shown real interest in programs like Michigan, Florida State and Alabama and that should not be discounted. In the same breath, Ohio State looks to be a leader to secure his pledge based on recent comments.
The Buckeyes finished second to only Alabama in terms of 2017 recruiting rankings and Urban Meyer is already at it again.
