COLUMBUS — Damien Harris, the nation's top 2015 running back, tweeted on Monday evening that he has set his official visit to Ohio State for the Virginia Tech night game on September 6.

"Had a great talk with Coach Meyer and the staff! Taking my official September 6th for the Virginia Tech game."

Harris (5-11 205) is a five-star prospect according to Rivals, and the number one tailback in the entire 2015 class per Rivals, ESPN and Scout. 247Sports lists him as their #2 running back.

Harris, out of Berea, Kentucky, is a former Michigan commit, but has recently cut his list down to a top five of Ohio State, Alabama, Kentucky, Texas A&M and Florida.

Harris is not the only five-star prospect scheduled to make an official visit during the Virginia Tech game. Florida quarterback Torrance Gibson, who is coming off of a 298-yard, five-touchdown passing performance on Sunday, will be in attendance, as will defensive end Josh Sweat, out of Chesapeake, Virginia.

Jacksonville cornerback Kevin Toliver, who is the #2 cornerback in the nation per 247Sports, is also scheduled to visit OSU for the Virginia Tech game.

Damien Harris may not be the only five-star running back on campus that weekend, as Orlando running back Jacques Patrick is also scheduled.

Three-star receiver Lawrence Cager (Baltimore, MD) is scheduled for the Virginia Tech game as well. More names may emerge as well.

As you can see, this will be one of the biggest recruiting days of the year for the Buckeyes, if not the biggest when you consider the amount of premium talent on hand. Is there a chance that somebody commits on their visit? Sure, but the most likely candidate would probably be 2016 North Ridgeville running back Demario McCall, who is rated the #6 running back in the nation per the 247Sports Composite Ranking.
