Well on their way to putting together another star studded recruiting class in 2022, Ryan Day, Greg Mattison, Greg Studrawa, and the Ohio State football program learned over the weekend that they are now one step closer to potentially adding another highly sought after junior prospect to the fold.
Announcing his final four college list via his Twitter page, four-star offensive/defensive lineman Billy Schrauth will line up on the next level at either Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan, or for his home-state Badgers of Wisconsin.
Earning his shot to call Columbus his college home in April, the Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin native has yet to make it to the Ohio State University campus for a visit to meet with the staff in person due to Covid-19 and NCAA restrictions since locking in his scholarship from the Buckeyes, but has already built a solid relationship with the OSU coaching staff.
“I like Ohio State because the coaches have made me a priority and have been recruiting me super hard. My goal is to play in the league one day and Ohio State sends several guys every year so that’s huge.” the 6-foot-5, 285-pounder told 247Sports.
Talented enough to play on either side of the ball in college, Schrauth finished his sophomore season with 44 total tackles, 2.5 quarterback sacks, and two forced fumbles. While he could be a force on the defensive line, most programs are looking for him to make a impact the offensive side of the ball as a interior lineman.
Schrauth is the No. 17 OT in the 2022 class, the No. 151 player overall and the No. 3 player in Wisconsin in the cycle.
