One of the most sought-after tight end prospects in the entire class of 2018 will play his college football in Columbus for Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes.
Announcing his plans to suit up for Ohio State via his Twitter page, four-star playmaker Jeremy Ruckert spurned opportunities at programs such as Michigan, Notre Dame, and Wisconsin to continue his next step toward the National Football League with the Buckeyes.

Alongside current Buckeye tight ends like Jake Hausmann, Luke Farrell, A.J. Alexander, and Kierre Hawkins, Ruckert will add another soft handed, big-bodied target to the Ohio State roster once he reaches Columbus.
Showing he can help with not just blocking, but also the passing game, the 6’6 240-pound U.S. Army All-American has been a standout on the field for Lindenhurst High School (NY) over the last two seasons.
As a sophomore at Lindenhurst, Ruckert accounted for 811 receiving yards and seven touchdowns, while coming back and finishing his junior campaign with the Bulldogs with 807 yards and hauling in eight touchdowns through the air.
With Ruckert, the first rated tight end and 52nd overall prospect in the class of 2018 (according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings) now in the fold, the Buckeyes’ class of 2018 is once again the top overall class in the country. The class currently sits at 15 players.
