Ohio State recruiting: 2017 DT Fred Hansard talks Buckeyes, recruitment

One of the hottest prospects on the trail updates his recruitment.


This past week we had the privilege in talking with 2017 defensive tackle prospect Fred Hansard. Fred is from Princeton, NJ and plays his ball at Hun School. Currently, Hansard is ranked the twelfth best prospect at his defensive tackle position and is the third best player in the state of New Jersey in the 2017 class according to 247Sports.

As of now, Hansard hold offers from Ohio State, Arizona State, Boston College, Miami, Kentucky, Rutgers, and Virginia Tech among others. With great size, standing at 6-foot-4 and 310 pounds, it is easy to see why so many have extended offers to this young talent.

Check out what Fred had to say to Land-Grant Holy Land below.
