Don’t worry! Land-Grant Holy Land is here to get you caught back up with things.

5-star CB names leaders

Not only picking up multiple verbal pledges, but also making a number of leader lists recently, it was business as usual for Ryan Day and the Ohio State football program on Thursday.

Although the Buckeyes staff might have some work to do to bring him from Scottsdale, Ariz., to Columbus, class of 2020 five-star cornerback Kelee Ringo has OSU among his top five.

Cutting things down from over 30 scholarship offers, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Saguaro High product took to his Twitter page to share with the world he’s still considering taking his talents to either Ohio State, Alabama, Georgia, Texas, or Oregon.

Just one of the many 2020 prospects the Buckeyes are trying to pluck out of the state of Arizona to team up with current quarterback commit Jack Miller, a fellow Scottsdale native, Ringo, who’s considered the top cornerback, and ninth overall prospect in the senior class, has some around the scene believing he could potentially turn into a first round draft pick in the NFL down the line.

Before that takes place, he has a very good shot at cracking the line-up and seeing significant playing time rather early on during his college career, according to 247Sports.

“Long, projectable frame with muscular build. Carries 205 pounds very well. Room to add mass and maintain flexibility. Explosive athlete with terrific straight-line speed. Length to cover big receivers out wide. Highly competitive and thrives in man coverage. Stingy near the line of scrimmage. Opens hips and stays with speedsters. Very good ball skills. Tends to get too physical at times, so will need to harness the aggressiveness. Potential to start at any Power Five program as true freshman. Upside as first-round NFL Draft selection.”

As a junior helping his Saguaro High squad to a state championship, Ringo accounted for 31 total tackles for the 13-1 Sabercats.
