Recruiting: Ohio State Makes Cut For Top RB Targets

Cleveland Villa Angela-St. Joseph four-star running back Bo Jackson (6-0, 205) is down to three schools according to a report from Eleven Warriors. He posted on Twitter May 2 that he would take an official visit to each of Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State over the summer, coming to Columbus May 31-June 2.

Jackson has been a recruit the Buckeyes have been after for a while now, beginning before former running backs coach Tony Alford went to Michigan for the same position. But Ohio State’s new running backs coach, Carlos Locklyn, hasn’t missed a beat in the No. 72 overall player’s recruitment.

Another running back the Buckeyes have been connected to for a while, Jordon Davison, has also narrowed his list down. He will choose between Alabama, Michigan, Ohio State and Oregon.

Jackson and Davison are the Buckeyes top two running back targets in the 2025 cycle after Marquise Davis, who Tony Alford was recruiting when he was still in Columbus, committed to Kentucky. Another recruit the Buckeyes have interest in is Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) American Heritage four-star running back Byron Louis (5-11, 200), who is visiting Ohio State June 14-16.
