Tyler Green commits to Ohio State

Student Sports

The Buckeyes add a two-way weapon who could make an impact whether they plan to use him on offense or defense.

After long stating in interviews that Ohio State was his dream school, a Buckeye offer at long last made it possible for Maryland product Tyler Green to make that dream into a reality. Per multiple media reports (and later confirmed by Green himself), Green committed to the Buckeyes today, joining a class that includes Eric Glover-WilliamsJamel Dean, and Joe Burrow.

Green, who checks in at 6'3 and 195 pounds, is a three-star in the 247Sports Composite rankings. The Composite groups him in with the tight ends (he's a versatile athlete who plays on both sides of the ball) and pegs him as the 18th best in the class, the 11th best player overall from the state of Maryland, and the 470th best player in the 2015 recruiting class.

This past April, Green stood out at Nike's Football Training Camp in the Washington, D.C. area. After earning the defensive backs MVP award for the camp, Green was invited to Nike's The Opening 2014. He joins a long string of Buckeye pledges to get invited the annual camp for the best players in high school football.

He spoke with SB Nation's Bud Elliott at the D.C. camp:

I saw Green in person at the event and thought that he looked the part for a high level FBS prospect. His frame suggested the ability to add weight in a major college conditioning program. His top speed didn't leave much of a memorable impression, but he was a long stride guy who was instinctive on the ball. He looked more safety than cornerback or tight end to me, and though he might not be a day one impact guy, he could be a few seasons from being in the mix for the Buckeyes.
