Ohio State Football Recruiting: 4-Star WR Expected To Commit To Buckeyes In August

Four-star wide receiver L'Christian Smith (Dayton, OH) is reportedly down to Ohio State and Kentucky in his recruitment, and will be visiting Lexington this weekend in what is expected to be his final unofficial visit.

While he is interested in the Wildcats, Smith is expected to commit to the Buckeyes during his nationally televised game on ESPN in August, according to Andrew Lind of Eleven Warriors:

The 6-foot-6, 210-pound Smith is seemingly down to Ohio State and Kentucky. And the conversation with Meyer to which he is referring is one that involved the Buckeyes' plan for him within their offense and for life after football. All the talk leading up to that was about Smith playing tight end at the next level, something he doesn't want — but has come to understand may be a possibility.

“That's completely settled,” Smith said. “They gave me two plans. One of the plans was if I were to stay this size, [I'll be a] wide receiver. Just like I am now, and how they're recruiting me at wide receiver. But if I was to grow like my brothers — they're 6-foot-9, 6-foot-10 — then I'd be a tight end. It's all about my development."

That narrative, of course, allowed the Wildcats to make Smith's recruitment interesting this spring. But given the fact that he continues to call Ohio State "the place to be," I don't see this weekend as anything other than Smith telling the Kentucky staff how much he appreciates their efforts.

The 6-foot-6, 210-pounder is ranked as the No. 3 athlete and No. 118 overall prospect in the country, according to 247sports' Composite Rankings.
