After recently striking out on senior offensive linemen Venzell Boulware and Drew Richmond, the Elite '15 finally picked up a new member Friday evening, as three-star prospect A.J. Alexander of Lake Braddock High School in Burke, VA became the 16th class of 2015 recruit to give the Buckeyes a verbal pledge.
A lot like OSU freshman Noah Brown, Alexander might line up all over the field on the high school level, but will suit up as a Buckeye at the H-Back position.
Receiving well over 15 scholarship offers, Alexander, who built a good bond with Urban Meyer, and Buckeye assistant coaches Tim Hinton, and Larry Johnson during the recruiting process, picked Ohio State over the chance to suit up for fellow Big Ten program, and his one time leaders, Wisconsin.
Playing with former OSU target, and current North Carolina Tar Heel quarterback Caleb Henderson last season, the 6'4, 220 pound standout caught 41 passes for 650 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior.
If rankings are your type of thing, A.J. is currently the 53rd ranked wide receiver, and 487th overall prospect in the 2015 class, according to the 247Sports Composite.
