Don Bosco Prep School of New Jersey saw their standout offensive lineman Kevin Feder officially sign with the Ohio State Buckeyes today. Feder, who is the 13th-rated player from the state, just faxed in his National Letter of Intent.
Feder committed to Ohio State last June, following a one-day camp in Columbus which saw him win the "smokehouse" event right before the camp concluded. What makes that even more impressive? He was able to top all competitors while checking in at 6'9, 305 pounds -- Feder is truly a physical specimen with qualities you simply can't teach.
If you don't remember, Feder was a Miami (FL) commit for some time as he committed to the Hurricanes in January of 2014. While that verbal held strong for five months, in the end it was Ohio State who dazzled the big man and caused a change of heart.
Other notable offers Feder held include Michigan State, Maryland, and Tennessee. However, there was never any doubt that he would waiver from the Buckeyes as he kept a low profile on the recruiting trail since June.
Overall, Feder still has little experience playing the offensive side of the ball and that's definitely why his offer list isn't going through the roof. However, with his size and athleticism, it's hard not to take a flyer on a player like this.
Our Christopher Jason shared his thoughts on Feder back when he committed over summer:
Feder comes from one of the most successful high school programs in the country, Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey. The 6'9, 305-pound offensive line prospect has primarily played defensive line in high school, due to team needs, but he will be on the offensive side of the ball in Columbus.
With a physically imposing stature, Feder can actually fill out his frame even more with muscle mass, which would make him the perfect offensive tackle (size-wise) at Ohio State. His height, combined with his long arms and athletic footwork will only help him once he gets the proper offensive line coaching. His tape is primarily of him playing on the defensive line, in which he shows a great motor and athleticism for a man of his size.
