While spending time with family and friends for the holiday, you may have missed Ohio State making fireworks of their own on Monday. However, there is no need to worry as Land-Grant Holy Land has you covered on all things Ohio State recruiting related.
Ohio State celebrates Kojo Antwi commitment
The Buckeyes, led by Ryan Day, had themselves a fireworks filled weekend — both metaphorically and literally. Ohio State was able to reel in their top remaining target in the 2021 recruiting class on Independence Day in J.T. Tuimoloau.
They then followed this up on Monday by bringing in another valuable piece to their future success when four-star wide-receiver Kojo Antwi committed to Ohio State as the second blue-chip commitment in 24 hours. Antwi marks the fourth WR in Ohio State’s 2022 recruiting class and will likely be the last. He is joined by five-star Caleb Burton and four-stars Kaleb Brown and Kyion Grayes. The pure dominance Ohio State has over the college football WR recruiting world continued with Antwi’s addition and future, current and former Ohio State Buckeyes took to Twitter to celebrate the newest member Zone 6.
Below are just some of those reactions:
The news was first celebrated with the most famous phrase of them all, brought to us by one of Ohio State’s most prominent Twitter users, Mark Pantoni.
Ohio State wide receivers also took to Twitter to celebrate the newest addition to the Buckeyes ridiculous WR room.

BOOM!! Looking forward to being teammates with the best wide receiver room in the country— Caleb Burton III (@calebburtoniii) July 5, 2021
Some former Buckeyes also were excited to see Ohio State’s recent success, including former Ohio State WR and current Dallas Cowboy Johnnie Dixon.
Nice to see Ohio State STILL landing the best players in the country!— Jeff Okudah (@jeffokudah) July 5, 2021
One future Buckeye who may benefit most from Antwi’s commitment also celebrated the news. Ohio State 2022 five-star QB Quinn Ewers has to like having four top-16 WR’s in this class set to join him in Columbus.
“Captain Buckeye” and the leader of Ohio State’s 2022 recruiting class, C.J. Hicks also celebrated the newest addition to this class. Hicks has put in a lot of work helping the Ohio State coaching staff put together what is currently the nation’s top recruiting class.
- Ohio State 2022 five-star QB commit Quinn Ewers continues to impress. Already viewed as not just the top QB in the 2022 recruiting class, but the No. 1 recruit overall, Ewers proved once again that he is the best in his class and has the potential to be one of the best Ohio State QB’s ever.
In the Elite 11 finals, which showcased the nation’s top 20 QB’s, Ewers proved to be the cream of the crop. Rivals.com listed him as their top performer at the event. When speaking of his performance, Adam Gorney and Sam Spiegelman had the following to say:
The nation’s No. 1 quarterback usually doesn’t line up behind center or always throw from a traditional arm angle, so the Elite 11 Finals certainly served as a learning experience. Nonetheless, Ewers has as much arm talent as any quarterback in the country.
He impressed during drills opening night, at his pro day and again during the accuracy challenge. Ewers has the ability to make every throw anywhere on the field and his best is better than most. He makes difficult throws look effortless and his desire to absorb knowledge is very tantalizing.
- It may be just days after J.T. Tuimoloau committed to Ohio State, but the 2021 five-star defensive lineman is already hitting the recruiting trail for Ohio State. The newest Buckeyes lineman is hard at work trying to convince 2022 five-star DL Omari Abor to join him in Columbus. While it may not be enough to convince him to choose Ohio State over Oklahoma, the blue-chip prospect definitely took notice.
- Ohio State 2022 four-star tight end commit Bennett Christian announced he will visit Columbus later this month when the dead period ends.
