The football commitments keep rolling in for the Ohio State Buckeyes, as on Friday afternoon, three-star Tennessee tight end Cormontae Hamilton declared that he was “100% committed” to becoming a Buckeye.
Hamilton is currently slotted as the 22nd player in the Volunteer State as he heads into his senior year, and the 30th best TE in the country, according to 247 Sports’ composite rankings. In addition to the Buckeyes, Hamilton held offers from Alabama, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Louisville, Michigan, and more.
Hamilton is the 15th member of Ohio State’s 2019 class. It had been a while since they added a commitment, but with so few spots left (roughly eight after this commit), every commitment is crucial, and has to be thought over thoroughly. He’ll almost certainly be the only tight end in the class, as Ohio State doesn’t have a great need for them in the 2019 cycle.
Ultimately, it came down to Hamilton or Brenton Strange, to fill the tight end spot, and Ohio state chose Hamilton.
We will have more on what this commitment means to Ohio State and their 2019 class shortly.
