Photos From Ohio State’s First Official Visit Weekend Of The Summer

The Buckeyes appeared to make a great impression on those in attendance.
Publish date:

Ohio State welcomed more than a dozen official visitors to campus this weekend for Buckeye Bash 2.0, including nine players who are currently committed and several top priorities from the 2022 recruiting cycle.

It marked the first time in Columbus for many of them, as the NCAA-mandated dead period has kept recruits away for the last 15 months,, while others who opted to take self-guided visits during the pandemic finally had the chance to meet the coaching staff, something they weren’t permitted to do while previously on campus.

The official visitors were in town for the better part of two days, at which time they toured the Woody Hayes Athletic Center and Ohio Stadium, met with professors and academic advisors and saw what the rest of Columbus had to offer. They also took photos in various Ohio State uniforms, which they promptly shared to social media.

With that said, BuckeyesNow has compiled some of the best shots from the weekend that was, including some from the unofficial visitors from the class of 2023 who made their way to campus, as well.
