Always keeping a close eye on the recruiting trail for top talent, the Ohio State football coaching staff have dealt out numerous scholarship offers to underclassman from across the country.
Picking up his offer from the Buckeyes late Wednesday night, four-star rated 2020 outside linebacker Justin Flowe Jr. adds Ohio State to what is becoming a rather stellar list of potential landing spots. With more than two years until he can sign on the dotted line with a program, the 6’3, 215-pound Upland, CA native holds around a dozen scholarship offers at the moment.
Honored to have received an offer from THEE Ohio State Buckeyes!! ⚫️ special thanks to @GregSchiano @ArmondSr @Therealsoopafly #GOBUCKEYES #TURNTUPLAND #GROUNDZERO #SLAUGHTER pic.twitter.com/IC6keRYubV— Justin Flowe Jr. (@justin_flowe) December 7, 2017
The Buckeyes now join the likes of Oklahoma, UCLA, USC, Penn State, Utah, and Washington State on the list of schools pursuing the top overall rated outside linebacker in the class of 2020, according to 247Sports.
Expect that list of offers to grow rather soon after the season Flowe just put together. Helping Upland High School finish the year off 12-1, the sophomore standout accounted for 119 total tackles and six quarterback sacks for head coach Tim Salter and the Highlanders.
From a verbal to a longtime pledge announcing his decommitment, a lot has happened in the world of Ohio State recruiting recently.
What’s next for the Buckeyes? Sit back and take a listen as the Land-Grant Holy Land podcast team will get you caught up with the latest.
- After shining on the football field all season long for Owasso (OK), Ohio State class of 2018 verbal pledge Josh Proctor, a four-star rated safety, was named 6AI-2 All-District MVP on Thursday.
- Five-star 2018 offensive tackle Jackson Carman isn’t the only prospect from Fairfield High the Buckeyes are interested in. Per his interview with Bill Greene of Scout, Ohio State are in contact with 2019 tight end Erick All almost weekly. Unlike Carman, the Buckeyes have yet to offer All, who currently holds scholarships from Cincinnati, Kentucky, and Rutgers.
