2020 Safety Lejond Cavazos Is A Perfect Fit At OSU

Lejond Cavazos

When it comes to Lejond Cavazos Ohio State has had him pegged for quite some time, and it not looks like he finally committed to the Buckeyes organization. He plans to enter OSU in 2020 as a safety, which is a position that the college could use right now. While the news isn't particularly shocking, it has taken more than a year for Cavazos to commit after picking up his scholarship offer.

Long Battle for the Commitment

OSU has been trying to get Cavazos to commit for nearly 23 months now, and he's been one of the schools top defensive targets for even longer than that. He's no stranger to the campus either since he visited the school four times. Cavazos met with the coaching staff during all four visits.

Considering his proximity to the school as well as how much OSU will need a safety in 2020, some might say that he should have committed a while ago. He wanted to take some time to make sure that he was making the right decision, however, and therefore he waited until recently to make an announcement on his Twitter account.

Ohio State Gets Garrett Wilson

GarrettWilson

Garrett Wilson Officially Commits to Ohio State

It's official! On April 29, five-star wide receiver, Garrett Wilson made a firm commitment to go to Ohio State rather than University of Texas Austin.

Considered the fifth-best wide receiver and overall number 29 prospect in the Class of 19, Wilson was not short on offers with more than 30.

Spent Time in Dublin Ohio

Even though he spent his formative years in Texas, having moved from Dublin, Ohio to Lake Travis in the 6th grade, Garret Wilson still remembers his Ohio roots and had good things to say about Buckeye fans. He referred to them as "best in the country" and remembers the atmosphere at Ohio State as, "awesome".

In late March, Wilson made a trip back to attend a Spring practice. He was able to visit relatives and friends who still lived in the Columbus area and then met on campus with Ohio State's coaching staff including Urban Meyer, Zach Smith, and Ryan Day. Wilson noted that Ohio State could set him up for the NFL draft but if for some reason things didn't work out they could provide opportunities and connections that would enable him to be successful even after football.

Jake Wray Set To Play For Buckeyes

JakeWray

Jake Wray seems to have made an early decision to play for OSU when his time comes. The Franklin HS star will more than likely follow through with his commitment, considering that this would help to reunite him with his brother Max who's currently enrolled at OSU. They played together while they were both on the Franklin team.

At 6-foot 5-inches and 290 lbs., Jake Wray is a large offensive lineman who expects to graduate in 2020 barring any unforeseen circumstances. That means he would be able to suit up for the 2021 season at the earliest.

Having transferred to Marietta HS in Georgia last fall after a dispute with officials, both brothers were forced to miss the final two games of the season. The dispute apparently stems from the way that the coaches handled injured players, which apparently caused some sort of an issue with his parents.

Ronnie Hickman Commits To Ohio State

RonnieHickman

Ronnie "Rocket" Hickman is set to dazzle the Buckeyes 2019 recruitment class. With Ohio State getting a commitment pledge from the 6-foot, 200 pounder on Friday, the Rocket will bring much needed offense and defense to the team. Hickman is also a member of a class totaling four members now -- joining 4-star Doug Nester, lineman. The squad will also include RB Sampson James, along with 3 star lineman Ryan Jacoby.

The class is currently rated the 21st best in the nation, as well as the 5th best in the conference, the Big Ten. The commitment, however, was not easy for Ronnie "Rocket" Hickman. In fact, he was touted by Penn State, Michigan, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame and others. As a product of DePaul Catholic, Hickman was rated an all-star athlete -- playing both defensive back and wide receiver. In his junior year, he amassed 809 yards receiving with ten touchdowns. He also had 47 tackles, two interceptions and was 2nd in yards at 945.

Ryan Jacoby: A Solid Beginning For Ohio State's Recruits Of 2019

RyanJacoby

Mentor Ohio's offensive lineman Ryan Jacoby brings his skills to Ohio State as commitment number two of the 2019 class of recruits. His statistics place him at number 356 overall player, number 39 tackle for his class, and within the top ten prospects of the state, which in turn makes him a four star selection.

The Ohio native opted for a local college over a long list of other institutions, including Michigan, Purdue, Northwestern, and more. His preference for the more local Ohio State and the Buckeyes is explained here in his comments.

What Does Ryan Jacoby Have to Offer the Buckeyes?
Jacoby and fellow new recruit, West Virginia's Doug Nester, are filling Ohio's very real need for offensive lineman in this recruiting class. The 6 foot five, 270 pound commit steps outside of the parameters of leaner and consequently faster linemen of Ohio State's prior years. With a fingertip to fingertip span that exceeds his height, Jacoby shows great promise. He's quick and can maneuver himself to stop linebackers and block players, even when distanced from the line of scrimmage. He has a versatility that could have him playing guard, or even tackle. His adaptability makes him a valuable choice who can fill a variety of roles.

What Chris Olave's Commitment Means For The Buckeyes

ChrisOlave2

Similar in body type, playing style and even background, I have to say that Chris Olave reminds me of a younger Devin Smith. That may seem like a bit of overkill for some Ohio State fans, I get it, but Chris Olave will have to earn that comparison and I believe him to be up to the task.

The comparison comes based mostly on speed. As you know, Smith was not only a state-champion long-jumper but also a star on the track, making him a real crowd favorite. Olave is equally strong in track and field although he did not play football his junior year due to transfer rules. Despite that, he still earned several offers based on his basketball and track efforts... along with word of mouth. It was not until October that Ohio State offered Olave a contract after seeing him play in his first handful of senior season games.

5-star DE Brenton Cox Won't Commit To OSU

BrentonCox

The top-ranked 2018 OSU recruiting class took a huge hit when DE Brenton Cox announced that he won't be playing with the Buckeyes. He apparently Tweeted out the end of his commitment after a visit to Alabama. This leaves OSU without a single DE in their recruiting class.

Cox was supposed to visit the OSU campus later in the month. He would have been eligible to sign during the early signing period that starts on December 20. It's now unclear whether Brenton Cox will even make the visit at all.

Senior defensive ends Jalyn Holmes and Tyquan Lewis are set to graduate, which means that the Buckeyes won't really have much in the way of scholarship defensive ends. Fourth-year junior Sam Hubbard could have left during the 2016 season, but he decided to stay in school for another year. He'll more than likely declare for the NFL draft in 2018.

There Is Balance In The Buckeyes As Master Teague III Joins The Force

MasterTeagueIII

The Buckeyes are now counting on Master Teague III to help carry them to victory in 2018. It's a huge responsibility for the young Tennessee running back, but it was no secret that Master Teague III wanted to go to Ohio State University all along.

His wish became self-fulfilling on Friday during the OSU camp. That's why the Master Teague III Twitter account literally lit up with a video about his landmark decision. It's a huge challenge, says Master Teague III, but the die is cast.

No one could be more dramatic or flamboyant than the Murfreesboro, Tennessee speedster himself who showered his Twitter followers with the Master Teague III morphing into his past, present, and future play shirts. The message was clear.

So at this point, there's no turning back for Master Teague III, who stands 5' 11" and weighs 210 pounds. He really owned it during the one-day summer camp. With that brand of razzle-dazzle performance, nobody doubts that his sports stats will continue to make the climb.

WR Mark Richards Never Had It So Good

MarkRichards

Maybe this is as good as it gets for WR Mark Richards, who had been serenaded last week by offers from the Big Five led by Ohio State University. If WR Mark Richards were a girl, he would have walked on a red carpet of rose petals. That's how intense the courtship was as Ohio State went on a recruiting offensive for the football season.

If WR Mark Richards bites the bait planted for him, he may be in for more. But as it is right now, the 4-star 2019 class member appears to be playing hard to get and enjoying Ohio's courtship dance in an almost noncommittal fashion.

It's a great strategy for WR Mark Richards because it seems to be working. The Buckeyes negotiators just might have to put more on the table. After all, the brother of wide out Ahmmon Richards could swing the Hurricanes way.

Josh Proctor Joins Ohio State

Josh Proctor

Josh Proctor, the Four Star Safety, Declares Commitment to the Buckeyes

Ohio State just received a commitment from Josh Proctor, the 'Sooner State' standout safety from Okla...

Proctor, who weighs 185 pounds and is six foot two inches tall, made this announcement on Saturday. He was also contemplating offers from schools such as Texas and Oklahoma in the Big Twelve area.

Proctor believes that it might surprise many in his locality that he will play away from home. In an interview, he said that - because people know where he grew up and his relatives played in OU - they expect him to follow suit.

However, he feels that he has a good rapport with the Ohio State coaches, and therefore will be able to perform well for them.
