All good with Micah Parsons and Ohio State, hoops lands a commit, J.K. Dobbins’ Heisman odds
Ohio State football is the No. 1 topic in Wake Up Sloopy every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Buckeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Ohio State football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Micah Parsons clears the air
Some postgame comments in support of Dwayne Haskins from Micah Parsons on the recruit’s official visit sparked a week of controversy at Ohio State. It sounds as though all is well between Parsons and Urban Meyer, though.
“We all good,” Parsons told Land of 10 on Tuesday.
His father Terrence added that the Buckeyes have not pulled the scholarship offer or insinuated that they don’t want Micah to end up in Columbus. “They’re still in our top 4,” Terrence Parsons said. “If they happen to pull the offer, then that’s the way it is. We’re following God’s path, and as they say, when one door closes, God will open another one.”
Ohio State basketball lands a commit
Ohio State basketball finally has a commit again. The Buckeyes picked up a pledge from Jaedon LeDee of Houston.
LeDee is a 4-star small forward who is the No. 107 overall recruit in the Class of 2018 per the 247Sports Composite.
J.K. Dobbins’ Heisman odds improve
Could Ohio State have a freshman Heisman Trophy winner? Probably not, but J.K. Dobbins’ odds are improving.
After his big game against Army, he entered the board on Bovada at 40-1. Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett is at 33-1, while Baker Mayfield leads the way at 7-4.
