Ohio State adds multiple crystal ball picks after successful recruiting weekend

It wasn’t just Texas running back James Peoples getting a crystal ball to pick Ohio State this weekend. Multiple others did so as well as a result of a very successful recruiting weekend (link to other story).

Buckeye head coach Ryan Day is looking to change the narrative after coming up short on the last few prospects that were considering Ohio State.

The momentum on the trail seems like it has turned in the Buckeyes favor, especially with multiple insiders thinking some very high level prospects will choose Ohio State.

Find out below which prospects received 247Sports crystal balls to wear Scarlet and Gray on Saturday afternoons.

2024 Texas linebacker Peyton Pierce


A top target for the cycle at linebacker, Pierce is one of the best in the country. Ohio State insider Bill Kurelic predicted the defender will commit to the Buckeyes. Later Notre Dame insider Tom Loy did the same.

2024 Ohio safety Reggie Powers III


Just offered over the weekend, Powers III has already been given a crystal ball to Ohio State by Kurelic. That is the only prediction for the in-state safety.

2024 Ohio offensive lineman Devontae Armstrong


Make it four-for-four with crystal ball selections to Ohio State for the lineman, the latest is from director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong. It seems it’s just a matter of time before Devontae joins the class.

*Armstrong has since committed to Ohio State

2024 Ohio offensive lineman Deontae Armstrong


Wiltfong thinks Deontae will do the same as his twin brother. Surprisingly, both have the same number of predictions as well.

2024 Indiana wide receiver Mylan Graham


Just one state over is a nationally recruited receiver who sees an opportunity to stay close to home and work with offensive coordinator Brian Hartline. This time it’s Allen Trieu, their national recruiting analyst, making the prediction. All three of the crystal balls for Graham are for Ohio State.
