Ohio State is one of two schools in the running for a top 2020 lineman

Could the Buckeyes be on track to land yet another top prospect to their early 2020 class?

Even on a week that saw Independence Day, you would think Ohio State Buckeyes recruiting news would die down a little bit. However, with The Opening going on in Texas earlier this week, current OSU commits—and even targets—were in full force showing why they are either being considered by Ohio State or are already in the fold. When it comes to Buckeye football recruiting, Urban Meyer and Mark Pantoni, as well as the rest of the coaching staff, have clicked on all cylinders for some time now. One would think the momentum would start to simmer a bit, but the opposite has happened. The current 2019 class is already in the top 10 as far as classes are concerned. Better yet, the current class has less commits in it than any school ranked higher, further cementing that this class when all is said and done is likely a lock to be another top five finish. Looking ahead, 2020 may just be Meyer’s greatest Ohio State class he’s signed—and that is just plain scary.

Sure, let’s add him too

It’s pretty difficult to go through the classes Urban Meyer has signed to Ohio State and pick the best. 2013 probably goes down as the best to date considering the National Championship roster as well as those former players having NFL success, but to be honest, every class is loaded with stellar talent, and that won’t stop any time soon. 2019 is coming along rather nicely, but it’s the future 2020 class that is taking the Buckeye recruiting scene by storm. With only four commits, the rankings and grades for each individual as well as a whole are showing just how off the charts talented this class can and likely will be. With several top players on everyone’s list considering Ohio State, this class really could be one for the ages and give us something special to talk about for years to come.

On Wednesday night, the Buckeyes got some good news. Not out of the usual by any stretch, Ohio State once again found their name on the top schools list for a tremendous prospect in the 2020 class. Down to two schools, Luke Wypler took to his Twitter account to let the recruiting world know that he’s down to Stanford and Ohio State for the college of his choice. A New Jersey native, Luke has a very impressive resume already considering he still has two full seasons of prep football to be played before he signs on the dotted line. A 6-foot-4, 285-pound guard, Wypler is considered by 247sports to be a high four-star, the third best offensive guard in the 2020 class, the second best player in the state for his class, and not to mention the 75th best player in the entire country regardless of position. The accolades are pretty impressive to say the very least.

Cutting his list to two schools is also impressive when you consider he has well over 20 offers from the likes of Notre Dame, Michigan, Florida, and many more. Where the recruitment gets a bit interesting though is when you take note that every 247sports crystal ball prediction has been in favor of Ohio State. It’s been said before, but to re-hash: the crystal ball is not a lock, but it also does give some great insight. Mix in the fact that there’s not another prediction for any other program and you have to feel pretty good about Ohio State’s chances in landing yet another monster commitment in their 2020 class. The good news just keeps on coming.
