One Potter wasn’t enough, so Ohio State added a second.
Four-star 2019 defensive end Noah Potter committed to play football for the Buckeyes, announcing his pledge Monday night on Twitter. His brother, Micah, plays basketball for Ohio State.
The 240th-ranked player in the country according to the 247Sports composite rankings, Potter became the first defensive end and the fifth player in Ohio State’s recruiting class. He joined his Mentor, Ohio, teammate and three-star offensive tackle Ryan Jacoby in the Buckeyes’ 2019 class.
Potter took visits to Wisconsin, Florida and Alabama in recent weeks and made a visit to Ohio State this weekend for the Spring Game. He took in warm-ups from the sidelines prior to the game.
One of the highest-rising prospects in his class, Potter stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 250 pounds. He is the eighth-best prospect in Ohio and 18th-ranked strongside defensive end.
The Buckeyes also picked up a commitment from four-star athlete Ronnie Hickman Friday evening. The New Jersey product is the 124th-ranked prospect in the nation and the 13th-best athlete.
