Did you miss out on your Ohio State recruiting fix while watching the XFL or hanging out with family and friends over the weekend? Don’t worry, Land-Grant Holy Land is here to get you caught back up with some of the latest news surrounding the Buckeyes.

Buckeyes offer four-star tight end

Ohio State might’ve landed a commitment from three-star Cincinnati Elder standout Joe Royer in 2020, but that doesn’t mean the Buckeyes are done tracking down talented tight ends to add to the program. With the senior class now in the rear view mirror, Ryan Day and the new-look group of assistant coaches are hard at work trying to put together another star-studded class in 2021.

On Sunday afternoon one of the most sought after junior tight ends in the country ended his weekend on a high note by adding a chance to rock the Scarlet and Gray at the college level.

Adding Ohio State to his offer list that previously consisted of programs such as Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Oregon, Nebraska, and Penn State, four-star prospect Jermaine Terry now holds a scholarship offer to play for the Buckeyes.

“It’s a blessing to receive an offer from such a historic school. [Player] Development comes to mind [when I think of OSU].” Terry stated to Land-Grant Holy Land on his offer from the Buckeyes.

A good-sized target at 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds, The Kennedy High (CA) junior accounted for over 200 receiving yards and three touchdowns this past season.

Currently considered the No. 4 tight end, and 134th overall prospect in the entire class of 2021 according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, recruiting analyst Brandon Huffman had to the following to say about the Richmond, California native:

“A matchup nightmare, impossible for DB’s to cover with his size and too athletic and strong for linebackers to cover. Has tremendous hands, and his quickness off the line lends to his difficulty to cover. Has great catch radius and body control. Continuing to improve as a blocker. Projects as immediate Power 5 contributor and projects as second-day NFL draft pick.”
