Rising 4-star CB earns Ohio State offer

One of the nation’s hottest prospects received an official scholarship off from Ohio State following The Opening Dallas Regional camp.

SB Nation

Four-star cornerback prospect Jalen Kimber (Arlington, TX / Mansfield Timberview) has seen his recruitment take off as of late.

Kimber took part in The Opening Dallas Regional camp this past weekend and walked away with the highest rating of all athletes that participated. After partaking in drills similar to that of the NFL Combine, The Opening gave him a rating of a 125.85 after posting a 4.47 in his 40-yard dash.

Because of his eye-popping performance, Kimber has seen an uptick in scholarship offers roll in, including Oklahoma and Texas over the weekend, and on Monday, Ohio State threw its name in the mix.

Including Ohio State, Kimber now holds a reported 23 scholarship offers from the likes of Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Texas A&M, TCU, Notre Dame and many more.

This impressive list as well as his performance over the weekend will likely skyrocket his rankings among national recruiting databases. Currently, Kimber is slotted as the No. 301 overall prospect in the 2020 recruiting class and is the No. 26 CB in the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

If he continues to build on his performance and has a senior season close to what is now expected, Kimber will make a big leap in the rankings.

Ohio State makes the cut for elite 4-star OT

Already viewed as the No. 6 class in the country, Ohio State’s 2020 recruiting class continues to gain momentum. On Monday the program learned it made the cut for one of its top offensive linemen prospects.

Four-star offensive tackle Anton Harrison (Washington, DC / Archbishop Carroll) released his top six remaining schools going forward and listed Ohio State as one of them.

Along with Ohio State, Harrison listed Maryland, Penn State, Oklahoma, Michigan and Ole Miss in his list that he says is in no order.

Outside of this list, it is anybody’s guess who has the lead in his recruitment. There is not a single prediction in the 247Sports Crystal Ball Predictions for his recruitment. He has taken unofficial visits to Penn State and UNC, but with the Tar Heels not being included in the above tweet, it is safe to say that right now Penn State is the favorite—but by an extremely slim margin.

We likely will not know more about the direction he is leaning until he begins taking more trips to the universities in his top six schools. However, with spring official visits not far away, we could get a better glimpse into what he is thinking sooner than later.

The 6-foot-5, 329-pound OT is ranked as the No. 186 overall prospect in 2020 and is No. 17 at his position in the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
