Marshon Lattimore And Erick Smith Commit To Ohio State University
Recently, Marshon Lattimore and Erick Smith revealed their school commitments during the All-American Bowl. Both players from Cleveland's Glenville High School have chosen Ohio State University. They became the 20th and 21st commitments for the Buckeyes in doing so. Of course, both players are ESPN 300 athletes. The Buckeyes now feature 11 ESPN 300 athletes, which is an impressive feat.
Lattimore is currently the nation's sixth-ranked athlete and number 50 in the ESPN 300. Meanwhile, Smith ranks number 228 in the ESPN 300 but ranks 15th in the nation as a safety. Another player, Marcelys Jones, played at Glenville, too, and recently committed to Ohio State. All three players are expected to improve an already formidable team that is known for dominating college football. Without a doubt, Lattimore holds the most potential.
Marshon Lattimore and Erick Smith's commitments make Ohio State the true victors of the weekend. By adding these players, the Buckeyes have become an even more formidable team. There's no reason that OSU can't continue its run of dominance in college football. Also, more commitments are likely coming in the near future. Adding more ESPN 300 athletes can only increase the potency of the roster.
In the end, Marshon Lattimore and Erick Smith should be well-received in Ohio. The Buckeyes have been performing well for the past few years but always feature room for improvement. OSU can continue to dominate the college football realm with a potent arsenal of players. Each year, the team receives some highly publicized commitments.
