Ohio State is hoping for a big visitor this week — but not on the recruiting trail.
Chance the Rapper is playing a show in Columbus Tuesday night, and the Buckeyes extended an invite to the Grammy-winning artist to stop by the team’s facilities. There was even promise of some scarlet and gray gear, which would surely go over well with the Columbus crowd.
@chancetherapper You are welcome to come stop by our facilities while you are in town this week! Buckeye gear is waiting 👊

Chance already had a run-in with one Big Ten football program on his tour. Last week, he met Nebraska coach Mike Riley during a stop in Omaha, Neb.
What are the Chances⁉️
Blessings keep falling in our lap.

Urban Meyer, it seems, is hoping for the same opportunity. Meeting one of the biggest young names in music would draw the envy of both players and recruits for Meyer. And probably Jim Harbaugh, too.
