An offer to another Sunshine State star...
Ohio State sent out an offer to 2019 outside linebacker Ge’Mon Eaford (Deerfield Beach, FL /Deerfield Beach) on Tuesday. Last year, Eaford had a productive sophomore season, which ended up running his offer total to 27. He’s a four-star prospect, according to 247Sports, and the No.16 rated linebacker in the country.
Ohio State will have its work cut out in this battle, as it always is, when dealing with another highly ranked recruit out of Florida. Though this recruitment is still very new, the top challengers seem to be Alabama, Michigan, Florida and Florida State. At 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, Eaford can play in space and is also a force coming off the edge in passing situations.
Look for his stock to continue to rise as he continues to get older.
...And another offer to a Sunshine State star
Staying in Florida, the Buckeyes also offered class of 2020 prospect Marcus Dumervil out of St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Ohio State has built a nice little pipeline with St. Thomas Aquinas over the years and they will look for Dumervil to be another piece. At 6-foot-5, 260 pounds, Dumervil is already a space-eater after his freshman season.
As he continues to mature, he will develop into the coveted defensive tackle that Ohio State chases every year. Coming into today Dumervil had just one offer, however, it’s likely that a ton of schools haven’t evaluated thoroughly just yet because of his age. Look for Dumervil to be one of the top prospects in the state by the time his junior and senior years roll around.
And one more for good measure
The offers didn’t stop with the previous two. Ohio State also made a move and offered fellow St. Thomas Aquinas star Marcus Rosemy. Again, like Dumervil, Rosemy is a class of 2020 prospect who is just getting his feet wet in this process. In addition to the Ohio State offer, Rosemy has also been offered by Cincinnati, Illinois, Pittsburgh and South Florida. Rosemary should be one of the top wide receivers in his class when it’s all said and done. Both of these recruitments have years to go, but it good that the Buckeyes have gotten involved this early. That alone should tell you that these are big-time prospects to watch going forward.
