The 5-star running back will not make an official visit

Richard Young is one of the most sought-after running backs in the Class of 2023. He is a five-star talent who has consistently been ranked among the best fullbacks in the country. And at one point, Ohio State seemed to be leading the way in its recruiting.

Young released his top 10 a while back and the Buckeyes made that cut unsurprisingly. However, since then Ohio State has been losing steam according to recruiting analysts, most of whom believe Young will eventually land in Tuscaloosa with Alabama.

Young did nothing to dispel these rumors by posting a statement on his personal Twitter account that he would not be making an official visit to the state of Ohio. He then quickly followed up that tweet by saying the Buckeyes were still one of the best schools on his roster.

Curious to say the least. Not taking an official visit seems like a bad sign for Ryan Day and Tony Alford. Or does the young man from Florida already know everything he needs to know about Columbus after visiting the campus last year?

With Alabama seemingly widening their lead to land Young, this looks more like a chance for the Buckeye to sign the five-star talent than any positive rotation we can make. Young will make official visits to ‘Bama, Georgia, our Ladyand Oklahoma.

The State of Ohio already has a commitment of Marc Flecher who is the No. 8 ranked running back and is still actively recruiting Judge Haynes who is the No. 3 running back in the country according to 247Composite Sports Rankings, so all is not lost.
