The 6-foot, 190-pound recruit gives Ohio State 16 ESPN 300 commitments, which is the most of any FBS program. North Carolina is the next closest with 11, Clemson is third with 10, followed by Tennessee with nine.
What might be even more impressive about Ohio State’s class is nine of the 16 ESPN 300 commitments are ranked within the top 100. The class is led by the No. 1 overall prospect, defensive end Jack Sawyer, who is a 6-foot-5, 230-pound prospect from Pickerington, Ohio.
