Ohio State already has a solid group of signal callers on campus and 2018 quarterback Emory Jones verbally committed to suit up for OSU once he graduates from Heard County High School (GA), but that isn’t keeping the staff from searching the recruiting trail for other talented prospects to add to the fold down the line.
Always looking for top talent to bring in, the Buckeyes dished out an offer to one of the top quarterback recruits from the class of 2020 on Thursday afternoon. Locking in an offer from the Big Ten power, Harrison Bailey (Marietta, GA / Marietta) is the latest recruit to add OSU to his growing list of potential landing spots.
Sitting at over 15 offers now, the Buckeyes join programs like Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State and Georgia as some of the schools on the prowl for the 6-foot-4, 215-pounder.

As a freshman at Marietta, Bailey showed the skills you want behind center. Connecting on 208 of his 363 passing attempts, he accounted for over 2,800 yards and 21 touchdowns through the air, while only throwing seven interceptions.
OSU offers Texas defensive back
Bailey wasn’t the only prospect to receive an offer from the Ohio State coaching staff yesterday, as the Buckeyes also handed class of 2019 safety Jalen Catalon (Mansfield, TX / Mansfield Legacy) a chance to head north and line up from Urban Meyer and crew.
Catalon, like Bailey, isn’t new to picking up scholarship offers from big time programs. Currently considered the seventh safety and 139th prospect in the junior class, per 247Sports, Clemson, Oklahoma, Stanford and TCU are just a few of the schools Meyer and the Buckeyes now find themselves up against for the 5-foot-9, 180-pound Mansfield, TX native.
