The Ohio State Buckeyes look to have some momentum on the recruiting trail in the 2025 class with a priority out-of-state Texas football running back target. After he unofficially visited Columbus to see Ohio State last weekend, high-four-star Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei running back Jordon Davison's commitment was forecasted to the Buckeyes.

On3's Steve Wiltfong entered an On3 RPM pick on the morning of April 1, projecting Davison's commitment to Ohio State over the Alabama Crimson Tide, Colorado Buffaloes, and Texas, among other top schools.

Wiltfong said that Ohio State is "in a great spot" for Davison coming off his unofficial trip to Columbus last weekend and that all the other top schools involved in this recruitment are "chasing" the Buckeyes this spring.

This is a notable shift in momentum for Davison after Texas was considered the favorite to win his commitment throughout most of the recruiting process for the elite RB from California.

Texas had the momentum in the race to land Davison's commitment until competing schools on the recruiting trail, namely Ohio State and Alabama, started to close that gap last fall. It looks like this momentum is building for Ohio State despite former Buckeyes running backs coach Tony Alford leaving for the same role with the Michigan Wolverines earlier this offseason.

Ohio State did announce the hiring of former Oregon Ducks running backs coach Carlos Locklyn to fill the same role on head coach Ryan Day's staff.

Davison to visit Texas unofficially this weekend

Choice and the Longhorns will have an opportunity to get momentum back in this recruitment when Davison unofficially visits Austin on April 6. Davison joins a loaded visitor list that also includes five-star wide receivers Dakorien Moore, Jaimie French, and Kaliq Lockett along with four-star Texas quarterback commit KJ Lacey, all of whom will be on campus on the 40 this weekend.

It will be a telling sign of where the Longhorns stand in this recruitment entering the summer official visits when Davison makes his first trip to Austin since Junior Day on Jan. 20.
