Buckeyes offer 2022 running back
Always searching the recruiting trail for excellent high school talent, the Buckeyes entered the race for one of the most sought after running backs in the entire class of 2022.
Joining the likes of programs such as Arkansas, Baylor, Oklahoma State, TCU and Texas, Ohio State reportedly dealt out to Denison (TX) sophomore standout Jadarian Price.
Considered the fourth running back in the class of 2020, Price came onto the scene putting up some rather solid numbers during his first year on varsity. Toting the rock 210 times, the 5-foot-10, 175-pounder accounted for over 1,400 yards rushing and eight touchdowns.
Catching major attention, 247Sports had the following to say on Jadarian Price and his skills on the field.
Not a tall prospect, but plenty of frame space to continue adding bulk. Long-striding gait, especially relative to size. Shows impressive agility and quick-footedness in the hole. Regularly makes defenders miss in close quarters. Encouraging penchant for turning upfield instead of bouncing everything. Flashes good initial burst and above-average long speed, but can still improve top end. Will need to continue adding bulk to maximize strength. Very limited pass-catching opportunities. High-major talent long-term and could be one of the nation’s top 2022 running back prospects.

- The Ohio State coaching staff has offered Neshannock (PA) defensive end Nico Nuzzo a preferred walk-on spot with the football team. Nuzzo, a 6-foot-4, 200-pounder, attended a summer camp with the Buckeyes.
