Erin Dunston, Ohio State football recruiting staffer, departs from program

Ohio State is facing a significant loss of a key recruiting staffer during a crucial month for official visits. Erin Dunston, who served as the assistant athletic director for football recruiting and events, has decided to leave the program. According to a school spokesman, Dunston has been managing the Buckeyes’ on-campus recruiting for the past three years. Reports indicate that she will be joining Michigan as their director of operations, making her the second coach or staff member to leave Ohio State for its rival this offseason.

Dunston has ties to Michigan through her family, as her sister is an assistant women’s basketball coach and former player for the Wolverines. Before her time at Ohio State, Dunston worked as a recruiting staffer at Kansas and Purdue, as well as a graduate assistant with LSU’s operations staff. Her departure comes at a critical time for the Buckeyes, as they have two more weekends for official visits before a recruiting dead period begins on June 24.

Despite recent staff changes, Ohio State has been successful in securing commitments from top recruits for their 2025 recruiting class. Recently they added Faheem Delane, a four-star safety from Washington D.C., and Bo Jackson, a four-star running back from Cleveland. With 14 commits, Ohio State currently holds the top-ranked recruiting class in the nation for the 2025 cycle according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
