Ryan Day, Kevin Wilson and the rest of the Ohio State coaching staff have made recruiting top tight end prospects a priority while searching for high school talent to bring into the fold. Already holding a verbal commitment from three-star rated class of 2022 prospect Bennett Christian, the Buckeyes have now entered the race for another Peach State tight end.
Looking to sign multiple tight ends in 2022, Day and crew offered underrated West Forsyth (GA) junior Oscar Delp on Saturday. Sharing the scholarship via his Twitter page, the Buckeyes join programs such as Georgia, Florida State, Michigan State, Stanford, Virginia Tech, USC, and arch rival Michigan on the hunt for Delp.
After a great call with @OSUCoachKDub I am honored to announce I have received my 15th offer from THE Ohio State University @ErikRichardsUSA @adamgorney @HamiltonESPN @Mansell247 @ChadSimmons_ @Rivalsfbcamps @DemetricDWarren @SWiltfong247 @recruits_west pic.twitter.com/9mhBxzqo2p— Oscar Delp (@DelpOscar) October 10, 2020
Just growing into his 6-foot-5, 220-pound frame, Delp — who reportedly clocks in with a sub 4.7 40 yard dash — has proved to be a pass catching threat from the tight end spot time and time again this season for West Forsyth High. Arguably his top performance of the season came earlier this month in a game that helped skyrocket his recruitment.
Taking on Mill Creek High, Delp averaged 34 yards per reception as he accounted for 205 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns in a hard fought loss to the Hawks. Now three games into his junior season with the Wolverines, Delp has racked up 14 catches for 325 yards and four TDs. He has scored at least once in all three of his team’s games thus far.
Want to see what caught the eye of the Ohio State coaching staff? Get a better feel for what Delp could add to the Buckeyes offense with these highlights of him in action this season:
- Three-star class of 2022 wide receiver Joseph Griffin Jr. told recruiting reporter Tom Lemming that Ohio State is his dream school. Yet to lock in a offer from the Buckeyes, Griffin does hold opportunities from the likes of Boston College, Duke, Virginia, and Wake Forest.
