George Hill commits to Ohio State

Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes land their first 2016 commitment.

Fresh off adding verbal commitments from class of 2015 recruits Joe BurrowTyler GreenGrant Schmidt, and Liam McCullough, the Buckeyes have struck gold again. While on a unofficial visit to campus today, Hubbard's George Hill became the first class of 2016 prospect to accept a scholarship opportunity from Urban Meyer and OSU. His commitment was first reported by Scout's Bill Greene.

A 6-foot, 185-pound running back, Hill is not just one of the most electrifying players in the entire state, but the entire country, too. He should fit right into what Meyer and Tom Herman are building on the offensive side of the ball when he reaches Columbus.

Splitting carries with Larry "LJ" Scott, a class of 2015 OSU target, George toted the ball 100 times for 1,075 yards and 15 touchdowns last season for a 12-1 Hubbard squad that lost to 2014 OSU signees Dante BookerParris Campbell, and Akron St. Vincent St. Mary in the Division III Regional Championship last November.

Before jumping on board with the Buckeyes, Hill, a four-star prospect, held scholarship offers from the likes of Cincinnati, Kentucky, Michigan State and West Virginia.

Keep checking back, as the Land-Grant Holy Land recruiting team will have much more on Hill's commitment in the coming days. If you haven't already, take a few moments to watch these highlights of the latest Ohio State commit in action:
