Tampa (Fla.) Hillsborough four-star defensive end Jordan Sherit landed another big offer on Wednesday.
"Ohio State offered me today," Sherit said.
The 6-foot-4, 245-pound defensive end has not yet had the opportunity to speak with Urban Meyer and his staff about the offer. They notified his coach who informed him.

"I plan to call them tonight," Sherit said. "I just want to ask them some questions and find out more about the school."
The Buckeyes are Sherit's 22nd offer. They join Arizona, Auburn, Cincinnati, Duke, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Miami, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Purdue, South Carolina, South Florida, Stanford, UCF, Vanderbilt, Virginia, and West Virginia in offering. The Rivals100 prospect admits that his newest offer does stand out in some ways.
"I think it stands out," Sherit said. "Ohio State is a great school with a great winning history. It is definitely a prestigious University. I have heard a lot of good things about them."
Sherit shared some more knowledge that he has about the Buckeyes.
"I know that Urban Meyer brought back some of his old Florida coaches with him there," Sherit said. "The running backs coach (Stan Drayton) is a coach that I spoke to in the past. I know it is a great program. I actually have some family staying at my house right now that is from Dayton, Ohio, which is just about an hour outside of Columbus. So I have family up that way."
The Sunshine State defender plans to make his way to Columbus at some point to learn more about the Big Ten program.
"I really just need to go see it for myself," Sherit said.
As for upcoming visits, Sherit is planning to check out a program in the coming weeks.
"My visit to Georgia Tech kind of fell through," Sherit said. "I am still planning to visit Vanderbilt on April 14th."
At this stage, Sherit doesn't claim a leader and he isn't working with a specific timeline for making a decision.
"I really want to take the time to take some unofficial visits and see some things before I narrow it down to a shorter list," Sherit said.
