With national signing day less than two weeks away, the rumors surrounding the 2013 recruiting class are flying in.

With Urban Meyer being one of the best recruiting coaches in all of college football, he'll be looking to add to his No. 4-ranked recruiting class (via ESPN Insider).

Here are some updates on potential Ohio State signees.


James Clark, WR

With just two commits at the wideout position, the Buckeyes could use a third in the form of 4-star WR James Clark.

According to 247Sports, Clark is the 32nd-ranked receiver in his class and would provide a decent amount of depth for Ohio State.

247Sports' Steve Wiltfong reports of Clark's plans this weekend on Twitter:

With Clemson, Florida and Northwestern also targeting the 5'10", 170-pound wideout, the Buckeyes should consider themselves lucky if they snag this talent.


Vonn Bell, S

With Ohio State, Tennessee and Alabama all flocking to acquire 5-star safety Vonn Bell, ESPN's Brad Bournival (Insider access required) reports that Bell had a great visit with the Buckeyes and coach Meyer.

While that's great news for Ohio State, it looks as if the Volunteers are the favorite to land the No. 2-ranked safety by 247Sports.

Bell reportedly grew up a Tennessee fan and saw the Volunteers go all out in their attempt to land the Georgia native (h/t ESPN's Greg Ostendorf):

Nonetheless, anything is possible, and it looks like we'll have to wait a little while longer to get an idea of where Bell is taking his talents next season.


Dontre Wilson, ATH

Dontre Wilson's commitment to the Oregon Ducks doesn't mean much, and with Meyer and the Buckeyes going hard for the 4-star athlete, anything can happen.

Wilson will be on the Ohio State campus this weekend, according to Wiltfong, but Meyer took his recruiting one step further by going to visit Wilson, according to Ohio State recruiting reporter, Marc Givler:

With Chip Kelly now long gone from Orgeon, don't be surprised to see Wilson jump ship to a Buckeyes team that went a perfect 12-0 this past season.
