On3’s Chad Simmons like Ohio State’s chances with elite instate 2024 prospect

The rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan is well documented, it’s not just on the field either, it’s on the recruiting trail.

Typically, it’s not the Buckeyes heading North for a prospect, it’s almost always the other way around, and 2024 Ohio cornerback Aaron Scott Jr. is a primary target for both schools.

Ohio State wants to keep the best prospects from leaving the state every year and Scott Jr. is one of those. The 6-foot, 170-pound corner is not only one of the best prospects in the state but in the country as well. It’s a heated recruiting battle between the two rivals and today the Buckeye got some encouraging news.
