2016 5-star ATH Mecole Hardman hints at joining Dwayne Haskins at Ohio State

The Ohio State Buckeyes shot back up the recruiting rankings for the 2016 season as they received three commitments from four-star players on Monday. One of those players was quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who flipped from Maryland.

Haskins’ decision to flip to Columbus seems to have intrigued another top recruit who is still undecided. 5-star ATH Mecole Hardman has yet to make a decision and is stuck on either Georgia or Ohio State and it looks like he has hinted at possibly following Haskins.

This could be huge for the Buckeyes, who just jumped from 3 to 1 in the rankings, overtaking rival Michigan and LSU for that top spot. The Buckeyes have lost nine underclassmen to the NFL and this could be a big pickup for them.
