While out spending time with family and friends during the Halloween weekend you probably missed out on some the latest recruiting news surrounding the Ohio State Buckeyes. Don’t worry! Land-Grant Holy Land is here to help you get caught back up with some things.

Gosnell announces commitment date

Looking to add another standout tight end alongside current pledge Bennett Christian to it’s class of 2022, Ryan Day, Kevin Wilson, and the rest of the Ohio State football coaching staff could potentially soon have their wish granted. Planning to announce his college destination via his Instagram page on Wednesday night, four-star North Carolina native Benjamin “Benji” Gosnell will shut down his recruitment.

Reportedly down to Ohio State, Florida, and his home-state Tarheels of UNC, Gosnell would add another pass catching threat to the Buckeyes future offense. With his junior season pushed back to the spring due to COVID-19, he’s coming off of a sophomore campaign where he displayed his talents in a matter of different ways. Playing on both sides of the ball for the Cardinals, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound playmaker hauled in 25 receptions for 422 yards and five touchdowns, while also snatching 85 total tackles and six quarterback sacks last season.

Catching more than footballs and tackles, Gosnell also caught the attention of scouts with his big time play week in and week out. In what could change in a hurry, he’s currently pegged as the No. 11 tight end, and No. 265 overall prospect in the class of 2022, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

It seems that Ohio State has more than a punchers chance of landing Gosnell’s commitment this week. Shortly after announcing his plans for this Wednesday, a trio of Crystal Ball predictions came in for the Buckeyes, including the likes of 247Sports director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong and OSU insider Bill Kurelic.
