In between spending time with loved ones and trying to finish things on your to-do list over the weekend, you might’ve missed out on some of the latest recruiting news surrounding the Ohio State Buckeyes. Don’t worry! Land-Grant Holy Land is here to help get you caught back up with things.

2022 DT has OSU among top leaders

Ohio State already has the top rated 2022 recruiting class in the country, and from the looks of things the rich could get even richer in the near future. According to Hayes Fawcett, a four-star soon-to-be-senior defensive tackle has the Buckeyes towards the top of his college leader list.

Currently holding over 20 full ride scholarship offers from some of the best college programs to line up on Saturdays, Ohio State, USC, and Georgia are sticking out the most at the moment to Cedar Grove (GA) standout Christen Miller.

A good sized pass rusher with tons of potential at 6-foot-5 and 285-pounds, Miller would add another solid piece to the future defensive line rotation. Pushing back his plans to verbally commit to a program in April, the Peach State standout now has a shot to check out his top college choices once the dead period ends, giving the Buckeyes a even better chance to pluck Miller out of the south.

In what could continue to improve in the coming months, Miller finds his name amongst some of the top talent on the high school level. Per the 247Sports Composite Rankings, he’s currently thought as the No. 11 defensive tackle and 164th overall prospect in the entire class of 2022.

Quick Hits

  • Five-star class of 2022 quarterback and current Ohio State verbal pledge Quinn Ewers will suit up in the 2022 All-American Bowl. A Southlake, TX native, Ewers won’t have to travel too far away from home to participate in the annual showcase of top tier high school talent. Just about four hours from his stomping grounds, Ewers is the first future Buckeye to commit to this years event.
  • Choosing the Bulldogs of Georgia over chances to chase his NFL dreams at programs such as Ohio State, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, and North Carolina, four-star class of 2022 outside linebacker Jalon Walker (Salisbury,NC/Salisbury) will take his talents to the SEC.
