Ohio State picked up the eighth commitment of its 2019 recruiting class on Sunday when outside linebacker Cade Stover announced his intention to join the Buckeyes via Twitter.
A four-star recruit from Lexington, Ohio, Stover is the No. 8 outside linebacker in the nation and the fourth-best recruit from the state of Ohio, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
Stover is one of three defensive players in Ohio State’s 2019 class, joining defensive end Noah Potter and safety Bryson Shaw, who flipped his commitment from Wisconsin on Jan. 27. Stover is also one of three Ohio natives in the 2019 class with both Potter and three-star offensive tackle Ryan Jacoby hailing from Mentor, Ohio.
Stover is the second player in his class to commit to the Buckeyes in as many days. Shaw committed Saturday. Ohio State has a chance to land its third commitment of the weekend when five-star wide receiver Garrett Wilson chooses between Texas and Ohio State. The Buckeyes have landed five of their eight commitments in April.
