2019 QB picks up interest from Ohio State

An in-state product is starting to jump on the Buckeyes recruiting boards.

Class of 2019 quarterback Michael Lowery is reportedly catching the eye of Ohio State. Lowery, just a sophomore, starts at Gahanna Lincoln and is distinguishing himself as one of the top prospects in the state of Ohio for his class. Lowery currently stands at just over 6-foot, but he is sure to continue to grow over the next couple of years. Lowery is slated as a pro-style quarterback, but he does possess decent legs that can get him out of trouble.

Lowery does not hold any notable offers as it stands now, but that will change this coming spring/summer has he makes his camp rounds and throws in front of coaches and scouts. Lowery has the Golden Lions at a 4-4 record and ranked No. 70 in the state according to MaxPreps. Even though Lowery has QB’d his squad to .500, the losses have been close. Recently against Lancaster (OH), Gahanna lost by three points, 21-18. Below is a quick highlight reel from Lowery’s outing against Lancaster, via Hudl.

In the game against Lancaster, Lowery was held to just over 100 yards in the air, following a couple 300+ yard passing performances. On his MaxPreps page, Lowery has over 2,000 yards passing and 20 touchdowns – both numbers are well above the national average.

Lowery will be a hot commodity at this time next year and the Buckeyes are sure to be one of his favorites when/if they make the decision to go all-in on the 2019 QB.

In the meantime, Gahanna has a chance to get above the .500 mark this Friday, as Lowery and the Lions travel to Grove City (OH) for a 7:30 p.m. showdown.

QUICK HITS

- Offensive line commit Josh Myers is officially an Army All-American after he received his game jersey yesterday afternoon. Myers is a unanimous five-star prospect and is rated the number 10 overall player in the class of 2017.

Myers is 100 percent to Ohio State and, barring a major change at the University, will be signing with the Buckeyes come January.

- Five-star wide receiver commit Trevon Grimes had surgery to repair his torn ACL on Tuesday morning. According to his Twitter and to reports, the surgery was a success and Trevon is doing well. If rehab goes well, as it should, Trevon will be a factor next fall and could push for playing time as a true freshman. Here’s hoping to a speedy recovery for the future Buckeye.
