2016 5-Star Mecole Hardman Jr. Hints He Could Be Joining Dwayne Haskins At Ohio State

Ohio State's football program had about as good a recruiting day as anyone could have on Monday. 

The Buckeyes landed commitments from three four-star recruits, including one of the top quarterback prospects in the country, Dwayne Haskins Jr. 

That wasn't the only recruiting news of the day for Urban Meyer's program, either. Mecole Hardman Jr., a five-star athlete in the 2016 class, updated his recruiting list to include Ohio State. Hardman, fresh off a visit to Columbus, seems to be enthralled with the idea of playing for the Scarlet and Gray. 

Will Hardman be joining Haskins and Co. in Ohio State's 2016 class? The No. 1 athlete in the class hinted at the possibility on Twitter.

Most recruiting analysts believe Hardman will end up at Georgia, but Ohio State's chances of landing the elite prospect have to be trending upward.
