Three-Star S Bryson Shaw and What He Means for the Buckeyes

BrysonShaw

OSU's recent acquisition of Bryson Shaw has given the college another safety who isn't afraid to take matters into his own hands. A native of the Chesapeake Bay State, Shaw is a ball-hogging player who can provide some needed help when it comes to defending against the run.

Ironically, the three-star player was once committed to the Badgers and may have even ended up playing lacrosse had things gone differently. Watching Sam Hubbard's play in the NFL was more than enough to get him to change gears, however.

Those who follow recruitment news weren't necessarily as familiar with Bryson Shaw, but the Buckeyes staff wanted to add him next year for a few reasons in spite of less-than-perfect rankings.

A recent composite poll had him slotted at #47 in total safeties nationwide. The same poll had him rated as the tenth overall in his home state.

Those who watch a ton of tape can tell that he used to run when he was in high school. The 6' 2" future OSU player looks speedy in highlight reels to say the very least. His thin build makes him look more like an athlete than a player in some instances, but Shaw has already stated that he's willing to work.

If anyone doubts this, then they should consider the fact that he's a former three-sport athlete who is quite physical in spite of his lack of size. He's willing to make a tackle and tries to make contact whenever he's got the chance to. Since he plays downhill, Shaw is able to make some pretty impressive moves in spite of his comparatively diminutive size.

Jaden McKenzie Makes An Impact At OSU

JadenMcKenzie

The most recent OSU recruiting class added another vital player as Wake Forest (North Carolina Campus) DT Jaden McKenzie has committed to the college. McKenzie is the first DT that Ryan Day has grabbed for the 2019 class.

Larry Johnson now has the defensive tackle that he's wanted for some time, and both he and Day see a ton of opportunity in McKenzie since he's got both strength and the ability to play between the sidelines.

McKenzie Upside

McKenzie is a large beast of an interior DT. He adds both size and athleticism to the other side of the ball, and he can run pretty well for a man of his size. This gives him the ability to take on blockers and produce takeaways.

Most importantly, McKenzie isn't afraid to do whatever it takes to get the job done. His previous academic team took home countless wins, and this eventually got them to the big one on three different occasions.

Eichenberg Commits To Ohio State's 2019 Recruiting Class

Tommy Eichenberg has officially committed to Ohio State's Recruiting Class of 2019.


Getting a commitment from Tommy Eichenberg, four-star linebacker from St. Ignatius in Cleveland has been a top priority for Ryan Day and the Buckeyes since he received the offer this fall. The Buckeyes see Eichenberg as a great fit for their football program and were thrilled when Eichenberg backed off of his Boston College pledge when the Wolverines and Buckeyes took an interest. Since then everyone pretty much expected he would pick one of the two rivals. What impact will his decision to commit to Ohio State have on the Buckeyes?


Adding a little weight and muscle mass to his 6'3" 225 pofund frame should not be an issue under the strength and conditioning program and Mickey Marotti. On film, Eichenberg appears to possess great instinct and doesn't flinch when it comes to making the tackle in space. The Buckeyes have had issues with the position, so getting a commitment from the top inside linebacker in the state is a real win.

And EJ Liddell Makes Ohio State a Top Contender

EJ Liddell

It's final: EJ Liddell has decided to go with Ohio State, a decision that broke the heart of Illinois and Missouri on Monday night. The two states were hoping up to the very last minute if something would sway the top 50 prospect to make a decision in their favor. Unfortunately, the force wasn't in them.

In the end, it wasn't an individual decision. EJ Liddell made the fateful choice in consultation with his first team: his family. For this, the Buckeyes have much to celebrate about the impending acquisition.

Ohio States 2019 Class

After all, the extremely tall EJ Liddell adds one more mighty powerhouse to a team that has been receiving a lot of extra boosts lately in terms of sign ups. With three of the 50 major commitments already coming their way, the Buckeyes are definitely the team to beat in terms of the potential lineup. EJ Liddell is definitely sending tremors down the spines of the other teams the moment his decision was announced.

Such an extremely powerful lineup for the Buckeyes in the very near future is nothing short of Herculean proportions. The EJ Liddell decision in Ohio State's favor had a lot to do with achieving almost instantaneous bromance with the rest of the team from the No. 48's Labor Day visitation. In EJ Liddell's own words, the male bonding couldn't have been any better, particularly with Alonzo Gaffney or DJ Carton.

Cormontae Hamilton: The Buckeye Doesn't Stop Here

CormontaeHamilton

Things are turning Buckeye these days, with Cormontae Hamilton being the latest one to bite the dust. The triple star tight end from Tennessee was the next man to pledge his undying love for the Ohio State team. Cormontae Hamilton's surrender to higher Ohio State power has made it a tie with Florida State.

Excellent Class for Urban Meyer

At eight pledges for both school camps, things are really heating up. And that makes the 2020 class of Ohio two pledges shy of the two. The recent Cormontae Hamilton pledge really upped the ante for his 2019 class, making it an honest-to-goodness pledge magnet. As the class' #15, Cormontae Hamilton brings real class to a tight ender's job and Ohio State can't ask for more.

The Jordan Battle play stats are a living proof of his fighting stance and readiness for the big leagues.

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.
