Ohio State was busy on Monday, sending out four offers, one of which was to a class of 2025 prospect in Owings Mills (Md.) McDonogh School four-star athlete Brandon Finney (6-2, 185).

As a junior, Finney had 51 catches for 632 yards and four touchdowns as a wide receiver while also playing on the defensive end of the ball as well. He is the No. 288 overall prospect, and the No. 8 in the state of Maryland according to 247Sports composite ranking.

He currently holds 17 offers, including ones from Georgia, Indiana, James Madison, Notre Dame, Oregon, Penn State, South Carolina and Wisconsin.

The Buckeyes also offered Irvine (Calif.) Crean Lutheran defensive end Anthony Jones (6-5, 240), a 2026 recruit on Monday.

Jones doesn’t currently have a composite ranking on 247, but he has received offers from 10 Division I schools including Auburn, Cal, Georgia, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Washington.

Jones finished the 2023 season with 46 tackles, five for a loss, seven sacks , four passes defended and two fumble recoveries.

Another 2026 prospect who received an offer from the Buckeyes was Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco four-star wide receiver Madden Williams (6-2, 185). The Buckeyes are just one of 24 offers the pass catcher has received so far.

Williams is ranked as the 257th best recruit in the country, the 40th best wide receiver and the 25th best player in the state of California. He had 42 catches for 496 yards and five touchdowns through the air in his sophomore season.

And Ohio State offered another 2027 prospect on Monday as well in Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek athlete Corey Hadley Jr. (6-1, 180).

2027 recruits haven’t been ranked yet, but with already eight Division I offers it’s obvious Hadley will be a sought-after player in the upcoming years. He has offers from Auburn, Florida, Kentucky, UCF and Western Kentucky among others so far.
