Skull Session: Early Buzz from Southern Swing

Ohio State is being aggressive once again in the state of North Carolina. Will it pay dividends in the 2026 class where the Buckeyes have already put out several scholarship offers to the state’s top junior prospects?

We’ll dive into some of our North Carolina stops, what we’re hearing, and where there could be some opportunities for the Buckeyes in the Tarheel State.

We also made a stop in West Virginia for big-time offensive lineman Da’Ron Parks. Could the Buckeyes pull this Top 100 prospect out of the Mountaineer State? O-Line recruiting has been a source of angst for Buckeye fans, but could 2026 be one of the best hauls in recent memory? We think it’s shaping up to be and explain why.

Alabama has never been a state that the Buckeyes could break into on the recruiting trail, but with a commitment from five-star defensive back Na’eem Offord and uncertainty at the state’s two premier programs, are the Buckeyes sensing some weakness?

We’ll dive into all of that, and more, in the latest Skull Session recruiting column.
