Michigan State will be recruiting Ohio State, Ohio’s largest conference rival, to compete for its next national championship, according to sources familiar with the situation.
Michigan State has also made an official bid to recruit Oklahoma and Wisconsin, sources told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
Sources told the AP that Michigan State’s bid to join the Big Ten in 2020 is likely to be announced in the next few days, but that it will not be as substantial as some other Big Ten teams, including Nebraska, Nebraska State, Michigan, Purdue and Minnesota.
Those schools are expected to be involved in the Big 12 expansion discussions.
In March, the Big 10 released a report showing that Oklahoma was a distant second to Ohio State in terms of the number of players it has on its roster.
Oklahoma, meanwhile, is expected to add four more Big Ten recruits in 2019 and 2020, as the league prepares to open up a 10-team conference, a conference source told the Associated Press.
That report included four Big Ten schools and four SEC schools, and said that Ohio State was the most attractive Big Ten recruit.
In January, Ohio State announced that it had hired Jim Harbaugh as its next coach.
The Buckeyes are set to become the first team to win the national championship in its first four seasons.
The Big 12 is set to expand to 12 teams in 2020.
The Buckeyes also have a strong tradition of recruiting top-tier recruits from around the country, and are known for their recruiting success with top-notch academics and high-level academics.
The Ohio State Board of Regents has approved an expansion of the school’s athletic department, with the addition of a new football facility and a new sports medicine center.
Ohio State has long been considered one of the best programs in the country.
But it is now facing a difficult task in recruiting, particularly in the Pac-12, where the Buckeyes will be competing for a new conference title, a second-team playoff berth and the chance to be part of the College Football Playoff (CFP).
The Buckeye’s success in recruiting Ohio has been a key reason the Big Twelve has been able to offer the Buckeye a contract extension, which expires in 2021.
While the Big East and Pac-10 are the two major conferences that Ohio has to compete with in recruiting recruits, the Buckeese have also attracted top-level talent from the Big West, the Southland Conference and other conferences.
Ohio State is the only Big Ten team that has a top-20 recruiting class, but the Buckes are also a leader in the number and quality of players they recruit.
