Did you miss out on your Ohio State Buckeyes recruiting fix over the weekend? Don’t worry Land-Grant Holy Land has your back. Sit back and get caught back up with some the latest news surrounding the Buckeyes recruiting efforts from the last few days.
Chambers named All-American
Hey! Guess what? Another Ohio State commit will soon get to strut his stuff against some of the top talent the United States has to offer.
After proving to be one of the top power backs in the class of 2019, future Buckeye Steele Chambers will get to display his abilities in the All-American Bowl, formerly known as the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, this upcoming January.

Chambers isn’t the first OSU pledge to get selected to participate in the All-American event. Even though the list could soon grow, also currently pegged to play the game are future Buckeyes Doug Nester, Harry Miller, Ronnie Hickman, and Garrett Wilson.
The Blessed Trinity Catholic (GA) senior has provens he’s more than worthy of his off the field accolades while on it so far this season. Helping pace his Titans teammates to a 35-6 win over South Forsyth (GA) on Friday, Chambers accounted for three total touchdowns, which included two through the air, in the blowout victory against the War Eagles.
2019 commit comes up big in win
Last week it was Jack Miller from Ohio State’s 2020 class that lit up his high school’s scoreboard. This go around, it was a future Buckeye from 2019 that showed why he’s considered one of the best in the country.
Coming up big for his Avon (IN) squad on Friday, class of 2019 Ohio State commit Sampson James legs carried the Orioles to a close victory over Ben Davis.
Carrying the ball 27 times for 186 yards and two touchdowns, James’ trips to the end zone were key to Avon’s 41-36 win.
Just two games into his senior season, Sampson, who earned offers from the likes of Arkansas, Florida State and Georgia before accepting his chance to play in the Big Ten for the Buckeyes, is well on his way to putting up some rather eye popping numbers. Averaging 8.1 yards a carry, he’s already rushed for over 330 yards for the 2-0 Orioles.
- After dishing out a verbal commitment to the Buckeyes earlier this summer, four-star linebacker Kane Patterson is now no longer a member of Ohio State’s class of 2019. Decommitting from the Buckeyes on Friday, the Tennessee native will once again explore his college options.
- While Urban Meyer, Ryan Day, and the rest of the football staff lost a pledge, Fred McGruff and the OSU women’s basketball program gained another prized recruit to their 2019 recruiting class. Choosing to play for the Buckeyes over reported opportunities at programs such as Maryland, and Notre Dame, five-star Canton McKinley standout guard Kierstan Bell will play her college ball in Columbus.
