Ryan Day and the Ohio State Buckeyes coaching staff have been hard at work trying to prepare this years Buckeye team to victory, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t keeping a close eye on up and coming prospects on the high school level.
Offering numerous top notch prospects recently, one of the recruits Ohio State threw their hat in the ring for was class of 2021 safety Hunter Wohler.
Catching him off guard, it was a pair of Buckeye assistant coaches who broke the news to the four-star prospect from Muskego High in Wisconsin.
“Coach Mattison texted me and wanted to talk to me so I gave him a call. We talked for a little bit and he said he liked my film from this year so far and thinks I’ve been playing well and then he handed the phone over to coach Hafley who said similar things in that he liked how I’ve grown since last year and how I’ve developed and then he said they would give me an offer. They said they are really excited to get me down for a game and can’t wait to build a relationship.”
After a great talk with @CoachJeffHafley and @CoachGMattison I am proud and excited to announce that I have received an offer from the Ohio State University. Can’t wait to get on campus for a game #GoBucks pic.twitter.com/cMBW7cQ1Rd— Hunter Wohler (@HunterWohler) September 3, 2019
Wohler, the eighth safety in the junior class, per the 247Sports Composite Rankings, adds the OSU scholarship alongside opportunities at programs such as Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota and others.
While he might hold numerous offers at the moment, the chance to line up at the college level in the Scarlet and Gray isn’t something the 6-foot-1, 180-pound standout is taking very lightly.
“It’s pretty cool knowing I’m regarded that highly. I think of a great program with great tradition.”
One of the many recruits to attend a summer camp with the Buckeyes, Wohler will be back in Columbus next month.
“I will be coming down on October 5th for the Michigan State game and I’m just excited for the atmosphere. I’ve heard it’s nuts so I can’t wait to be in it.”
