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.

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.
