National Signing Day 2016: OG Jack Wohlabaugh signs with Ohio State

The Walsh Jesuit offensive lineman is officially a Buckeye.

After committing to Ohio State over scholarship offers from Michigan, Minnesota, Kentucky, and Cincinnati, Jack Wohlabaugh is officially an Ohio State Buckeye. He signed and faxed in his letter of intent to the Ohio State coaching staff today.

Last April, the Buckeyes extended an offer to Wohlabaugh, and he jumped at the chance to wear the Scarlet and Gray as he committed the very same day.

Wohlabaugh, a 6'4, 280-pound offensive lineman, comes from Walsh Jesuit High School in Stow, Ohio. His relationship with coaches Ed Warinner and Tony Alford won out early in his recruiting process. Those two were his primary recruiters. Wohlabaugh is expected to play center or guard when he arrives in Columbus.

As a senior, Wohlabaugh was the ultimate road grader for the in-state Warriors, though he just missed on earning an invite to the Under Armour All-American Game. According to 247Sports, Wohlabaugh is the 20th rated guard in the class of 2016 and the number 17 rated player in the state of Ohio.

Scouting report

"Jack Wohlabaugh does not pop off the tape, but he is a solid football player who does an adequate job of what he is asked to do. The son of former NFL center Dave Wohlabaugh possesses good size for an interior lineman, at 6’3 and 280 pounds and could play either guard or center.

He plays like a former player’s son, with good technique and solid footwork. He is not overly strong or athletic, but he finds a way to win the majority of his battles. Bottom line is that Wohlabaugh is a tough interior lineman who works hard and plays smart.

He may have a tough transition to life as a Big Ten lineman, but his work ethic and his motor could eventually vault him into the two-deep along the interior of the offensive line." -Christopher Jason
