Ohio State is already loaded at the defensive line. And now, thanks to a new commitment, they’re about to be even deeper and stronger.
Per his Twitter account, 2018 DE Andrew Chatfield of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., announced his commitment to Ohio State.
The 6’2, 221-pound Chatfield is listed as a four-star recruit in the 247Sports Composite. He’s the 291st ranked prospect nationally, the 15th-ranked defensive end and the 49th-ranked player in the state of Florida. He’s a product of American Heritage high school, a state power that also produced former Ohio State Buckeye Torrance Gibson.
Chatfield picked the Buckeyes over LSU, Notre Dame, Wisconsin and a slew of other high profile programs. Chatfield is the 11th current commitment in the class of 2018, a class where every single player is in the top 300 prospects nationally. That’s nuts.
Ohio State is hitting defensive line recruiting hard in this class, as Chatfield joins five-star defensive tackle Taron Vincent and five-star defensive end Brenton Cox.
