Playoff season is winding down across the country, but we still had a few Ohio State commits in action this past weekend.

As usual, five-star receiver Garrett Wilson had an outstanding game. He had seven catches for 139 yards and scored three touchdowns.

This led Lake Travis to another victory, as they beat Judson High School 38-21. With the win, Lake Travis improved their record to 13-1. Their next game will be the state semifinal against North Shore

North Shore, which undefeated at 14-0 this season, features two highly recruited prospects in Tony Bradford and Keeyon Stewart.

Bradford is verbally committed to Texas Tech and Stewart is deciding between Texas Tech and Houston. Both are members of the 2019 recruiting class.


Jordan Battle and St. Thomas Aquinas lost in the state championship game on Friday night. Lakeland beat St. Thomas Aquinas by a score of 33-20.

Battle season ends with his team owning a 13-2 record. It was a tough matchup for St. Thomas Aquinas as Lakeland also has a few highly rated recruits on their team. Keon Zipperer, Deyavie Hammond and Lloyd Summerall are a few of the sought after 2019 prospects that led Lakeland to the state title.

Zipperer is deciding between Florida and Miami (FL), Hammond is verbally committed to Florida, and Summerall is deciding between Florida, Florida State and Miami.


Steele Chambers will be in action on Wednesday night for the state championship. Blessed Trinity will square off against Cartersville for the Georgia AAAA title.

Both teams share a record of 14-0 this year.

Chambers is coming off a performance where he was awarded MaxPreps Polynesian Bowl Player of the Week.

His three touchdown, 244 yard performance against Troup County allowed him to stand out and win the award.

Checking in on the newest commit

Tommy Eichenberg, of St. Ignatius, committed to Ohio State last week. St. Ignatius has been eliminated from the playoffs for a few weeks now, but they had a pretty good season.

Their season ended with an 8-3 record after losing to rival St. Edward in the state playoffs. They beat St. Edward the week prior, but couldn’t solve them two weeks in a row.

The loss ended an eight game win streak after starting the year out 0-2.

Eichenberg is the first recruit to verbally commit in the Ryan Day era. He recently decommitted from Boston College, likely due to more of an interest from Ohio State.
