3-star 2020 offensive tackle Trey Leroux commits to Ohio State

The Buckeyes secure the commitment of an in-state prospect.

As the 2019 Ohio State Buckeyes football team begins the second week of their spring practice, the 2020 recruiting class picked up a very large commitment, and I mean that literally. As 6-foot-8, 320-pound offensive lineman Trey Leroux has pledged to play for the Buckeyes beginning next fall.

The Buckeyes offered the mountain of a prospect on Sunday afternoon, and the o-lineman didn’t waste much time making his decision public. Leroux was in Columbus as his brother competed in the Ohio high school state wrestling championship, a perfect opportunity to get some one-on-one time with head coach Ryan Day.

According to recruiting services, Leroux is considered the 38th best player in the state, and is currently rated as a three-star prospect. However, since Day will need upwards of five or six lineman in the 2020 class, locking down a solid in-state commitment early seems to fit the new coach’s pledge to refocus recruiting efforts on in-state talent.
