Coach Urban Meyer's Ohio State Buckeye Defense got a little better today with the announcement that five-star recruit, defensive tackle Taron Vincent has committed to play for the scarlet and grey from next season.
Ranked the number one defensive tackle and 21st overall player in all high school, Vincent brings size and athleticism to the Buckeyes defense.
Playing his high school football at Florida's IMG Academy, Vincent's play made him a standout. Standing 6-1 and weighing 290 lbs, his ability to play the run and rush the passer caught the eye of many a division one scout.
Having received over 30 offers to play football, including offers from Florida State, Michigan and Alabama Vincent eventually made his decision to play for Meyer after a two-day visit to the campus last week.
With his physical gifts, and the guidance of his father, former NFL CB Troy Vincent, Taron Vincent is positioned to make an impact for the Buckeyes for years to come.
The commitment from Vincent adds to the other four top recruits already committed to Ohio State for next year. Vi
QB Emory Jones, RB Brian Snead, RB Jaelen Gill, and DB Jaiden Woodbey join Vincent in the scarlet and grey putting the Buckeyes once again back in the top 10 of college football.
