Ohio State sent out another three offers over the past few days to a 2025 recruit, Riverview (Fla.) Sumner High four-star offensive tackle Ziyare Addison (6-5, 290), and two 2026 prospects in Houston Mayde Creek four-star linebacker Kosi Okpala (6-2, 215) and Jacksonville (Fla.) The Bolles School four-star wide receiver Naeem Burroughs (5-11, 160).

Addison is one of many offensive line offers the Buckeyes have sent out recently and is the No. 211 player in the country, the No. 22 offensive tackle and the No. 30 player in the state of Florida according to 247Sports composite ranking.

Addison released his top 12 on March 19 which included Georgia, Florida State, Florida, Miami, Colorado, Penn State, Oregon, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Stanford, Nebraska and UCLA, but that could change now that he has received an offer from the Buckeyes.

Okpala is ranked the No. 157 player in the 2026 class, the 14th linebacker and the 18th best player in Texas. He had received 18 Division I offers so far, eight of which have come in the month of May.

In his sophomore season, he had 66 tackles, 12 for a loss, two sacks and a forced fumble.

Burroughs received his offer on Tuesday, and also has been offered by Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State and Wisconsin, among many others. He is ranked the 78th best player in the 2026 class, the No. 11 wide receiver and the 11th best player in the state of Florida.

In his sophomore season, Burroughs caught 47 passes for 1,019 yards and 15 touchdowns in 14 games, and the year before as a freshman had 36 catches for 659 yards and seven touchdowns. He also returned kickoffs this past season with 15 counted for a total of 360 yards and a long of 56.

Burroughs brother, Quincy Burroughs currently is on the roster for Wisconsin and had four catches for 30 yards last season.
