While you were trying to enjoy the weekend you might’ve missed out on some the latest recruiting news surrounding the Ohio State Buckeyes football squad. Don’t worry! Land-Grant Holy Land is here to help get you caught back up with things.

2022 DL talks OSU offer

Regardless of graduating class, if Ryan Day and crew think you can help the Buckeyes football program out down the line, they’re probably going to offer you a scholarship to suit up in the Scarlet and Gray.

Looking to finish the class of 2021 strong, the Buckeye bosses are still hard at work tracking down 2022 talent to bring into the fold. Already off to a rather decent start to their junior class, Ohio State has issued scholarship offers to many other highly sought after 2022 prospects, including four-star defensive tackle Caden Curry.

Earning his offer from Day himself, the Buckeye scholarship isn’t something the Center Grove (IN) three-sport standout is taking very lightly.

“Coach Day was the one that offered me. He said he loves how I play hard and play with a high motor and wants me to love the grind and love the game which I do very much,” the 6-foot-5, 250-pounder told Land-Grant Holy Land. “Moving forward I would love to get on campus and meet the coaches in person and see the campus. I think of OSU football as a top tier team that I will definitely always be close with.”

Holding offers from the likes of Arizona State, Boston College, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas State, and Purdue, Curry is hearing from a pair of Big Ten programs the most. With more than two years left to figure out where he’d like to continue his hopeful path to the NFL, he’s starting to give some major thought into what he’s look for in a program on and off of the football field.

“At the moment the two schools that have reached out to me the most is Indiana and Ohio State. Definitely the facilities and the people i’m going to be around (are things I’m searching for in a University.)”

Currently considered the No. 4 defensive tackle, and 134th overall prospect in the entire class of 2022, according to 247Sports, Curry put together a huge sophomore campaign for the Center Grove Trojans. An All-State selection for his play on the field, he accounted for 100 total tackles, and 10.5 quarterback sacks last season.

Quick Hits

  • Class of 2021 running back and Ohio State verbal commit TreVeyon Henderson will suit up in the annual All-American Bowl. Henderson, a five-star recruit from Hopewell, Virginia, will join fellow future Buckeyes quarterback Kyle McCord, offensive guard Donovan Jackson, linebacker Reid Carrico, and running back Evan Pryor at the event held in San Antonio.
  • Five-star offensive tackle Tristan Leigh announced his top 15 over the weekend. Trimming things down from well over 35 college offers, Ohio State, Georgia, Miami, Florida State, Penn State, Oklahoma, Virginia, Maryland, LSU, Florida, Central Florida, Virginia Tech, Clemson, Alabama, and USC are still in the mix for the Robinson Secondary (VA) class of 2021 road grader.
  • Leigh’s wasn’t the only short list Ohio State found itself on this weekend, as the Buckeyes also made the cut for four-star tight end Dametrious Crownover. Holding at least 25 different offers, the 6-foot-6 Texas product is the No. 8 TE in 2021, and the No. 222 player in the nation. OSU made the top 11 for the Grandview native alongside Auburn, LSU, Oregon, Texas and others.
