Ohio State makes the short list for another 2021 playmaker

Add another standout to the long list of potential Buckeyes.

NCAA Football: Big Ten Championship-Ohio State vs Wisconsin Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

While out Christmas shopping for loved ones over the weekend you might’ve missed out on some of the latest recruiting news surrounding the Ohio State football program.

Don’t worry, Land-Grant Holy Land is here to save the day!

Four-star receiver names leaders

Just days away from most of the 2020 class signing a National Letter of Intent with the college of their choice, many highly sought after junior recruits are also inching closer and closer to making a decision.

Already blessed with a top notch 2021 class of verbal pledges, another top-rated junior is now considering jumping on board the group of soon-to-be Buckeyes.

Announcing his top seven via his Twitter page on Saturday evening, Centennial (GA) four-star wide receiver Julian Nixon trimmed things down from over a dozen offers. Making the cut for 6-foot-4, 205-pound playmaker, Ohio State finds themselves alongside Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, and the University of Tennessee for the Roswell, GA native’s talents.

Nixon, who visited Columbus last April, would join two fellow four-star wideouts in the Buckeyes’ class of 2021 in St. Joseph’s Prep School’s (PA) Marvin Harrison Jr., and Jayden Ballard of Massillon Washington.

While things could change in the near future, most around the scene believe Nixon will stay closer to home in the peach state.
