Georgia product gets Ohio State offer
2019 cornerback Jalen Perry (Dacula, GA / Dacula) picked up an offer from Ohio State on Tuesday. Perry made it known that he held a coveted OSU offer with a tweet.
While he is just coming off a sophomore season, already looks like the kind of athlete the Buckeyes covet at the cornerback position. The CB comes in at 6-foot and 180 pounds. His lengthy body makes him a prime target for Ohio State, as he’s a guy who can lock onto and shut down receivers anywhere on the field.
Perry is from the Peach State, so holding off the in-state Georgia Bulldogs will be no easy task for the Buckeyes. However, Ohio State has had a ton of success recruiting the Peach State in the last decade. The Ohio State offer runs Perry’s total to 11, and though he has not yet been evaluated by the major recruiting sites, it’s very likely that he ends up as a four-star prospect—so expect more offers to be filling up his mailbox in the near future.
In addition to Ohio State and Georgia, Perry holds notable offers from Alabama, Ole Miss and Tennessee. The Buckeyes will try and get him on campus this summer for an unofficial visit or a camp.

Staying in the 2019 class
In a report from 247Sports’ Bill Kurelic, 2019 quarterback Michael Johnson (Eugene, OR /Sheldon) likes Ohio State a lot and will be trying to get back on campus sometime this summer. The Buckeyes have recruited the quarterback position as well as any program the last couple of years and will look to add one of the best in the class of 2019. Now, this recruitment will not likely end anytime soon and is sure to go on well into Johnson’s senior season. However, the Buckeyes are in it early and have positioned themselves nicely as Johnson heads into his junior season.
Already, there is stiff competition for the dual-threat QB. Ohio State joins Oregon (the hometown program), LSU and Georgia as programs that have offered the Eugene native a scholarship since the beginning of March.
