It’s a two quarterback commit kind of week. After Dwan Mathis committed last Sunday night, giving Ohio State their quarterback for the 2019 class, just seven days later, 2020 4-star Jack Miller has joined the club.
Miller, who visited Ohio State last weekend for Friday Night Lights, has long been considered a “when-rather-than-if” recruit, as the main question about him was not where he’d land, but when he’d officially commit to Ohio State. Despite the 2020 signing period not beginning for another year and a half, Miller has seen enough, and was ready to shut down his recruitment.
The 6-foot-4, 210 pound star quarterback is the fourth member of Ohio State’s 2020 class, along with linemen Paris Johnson Jr and Jake Wray, and safety Lejond Cavazos. His pledge moves Ohio State to second in the country, and cements their place at the top spot in the Big Ten.
While it’s unusual to see multiple quarterbacks in one class, I wouldn’t be shocked if Miller is joined at some point, either by Georgia’s C.J. Dixon or Ohio’s Demeatric Crenshaw. The 2019 class is weak for quarterbacks, and the Buckeyes will be lacking in depth by the time 2020 rolls around, so two QBs in the 2020 class makes a lot of sense.
Miller is as perfect of a fit for Ryan Day and Ohio State as possible. He’s been familiar with the Buckeye staff for years now, and has been on campus several times since he visited for a camp last June. He’s extremely comfortable with the school, the staff, and his future teammates, and recent visits have really just been about selling his parents on the school. Apparently, this visit was enough to get it done.
Miller picked the Buckeyes over offers from just about every top school in the country. Alabama, Auburn, Arizona, Arizona State, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Texas A&M and USC were all among the suitors that Miller snubbed for Ohio State. He’s been the top quarterback on Ohio State’s board for years now, and to finally get him committed is a huge deal.
Land Grant Holy-Land will have more on this commitment soon. In the meantime, you can view his highlights below.
