Mark Fletcher Ohio State 2023 Running Back

MarkFletcher

Mark Fletcher from American Heritage in Fort Lauderdale Florida committed to Ohio State for the 2023 season earlier this month. Considered a big back, he has provided his school with three productive high school football seasons, gaining over 2500 yards and 29 touchdowns.

At 6'1" 225 lbs. Fletcher, a four start running back, picked OSU over Penn State, Michigan, and Miami of Florida. He is rated the 7th best running back in the country. He made visits to Ohio State on April 1st, Miami on March 24th, Michigan on March 21st and was at USC on March 11th.

Crystal Ball projections made shortly prior to the commitment had Fletcher going to the Buckeyes.

Ohio State 2023 Class

Running Back's coach Tony Alford recruited Fletcher and is looking to add another back to the 2023 class. At the time of Fletcher's commitment, Ohio State had 6 commits including mostly defensive players. No other running backs are currently looking to join the Buckeye's class. Ahead of Fletcher on the depth chart are Marcus Crowley, Miyan Williams, Treveyon Henderson, Evan Pryor and Dallen Hayden.

Fletcher plays 7-on-7 with current commit Cedrick Hawkins at South Florida Express. He can catch the ball and has decent speed in space as seen in film.

American Heritage is a school Ohio State has been trying to create a relationship with for some time. So getting Fletcher is an important step for the Buckeyes in Florida.

Urban Meyer Takes Role With NIL Company

UrbanMeyer

The Urban Meyer news of late is a huge college football story, along with the new Name, Image, and Likeness rules. Mr. Meyer accepting a position on the board of directors for the THE Foundation is in sync with the new rule. This rule states that college sports players can now earn money through name, image, and likeness deals with companies like Nike.

THE Foundation

What the THE Foundation does is help improve the quality of life for the sports players on the college level at Ohio State University. So not only are the players allowed to make money where only the NCAA used to, there may be other perks to being a player at O.S.U. through The Foundation.

With all the bad news in the world today, what is happening in Ohio is welcome news indeed. For years now, people have been formulating ways to help college players receive monies for all the money they bring to the school and the NCAA. It was an off-balance partnership, with the bread winners left eating crumbs.

Urban Meyer News

One cannot help but get the impression that Urban Meyer had been working hard behind the scenes to get this done for both the player's sake and his. Maybe he "profited" from his behind-the-scenes work by way of getting fast racked onto the board, which is fine if true. It's fine, considering the players got the best deal out of it.

The prospect of getting endorsement deals when you're good enough should help spark greater competition. Competition between players for a good payday only makes the players better, the teams better, and the league itself better because of the rising talents.

It's still unclear exactly how the THE Foundation will improve their quality of life. Hopefully health insurance is on the top of the list. If the NCAA does this already, more supplemental insurance is never a bad thing. Or possibly pushing the right people to put more relevant and needed money management courses into the curriculum. Making a lot of money is one thing, but learning how to manage it will greatly improve the player's quality of life.

So all in all, the business end of this sport, in this college and others, is gaining positive press for their endeavors. The Urban Meyer news is good in and of itself, but when you couple that with the new name/image/likeness rule, you have a sport that is turning heads and, potentially, a larger fan base.

Luke Montgomery Buckeye Offensive lineman for 2023

LukeMontgomery

Luke Montgomery, 6'5" 270 lbs., out of Findlay Ohio High School recently committed to the Ohio State football team for 2023. Some teams thought he could also play defensive line but was rated on the offensive line and is coming to Columbus to play that position. He said shortly after a school event that he wants to compete and win a spot with OSU.

Montgomery selected Ohio State because of the culture, coaches and teammates which were important to him. He committed to the Buckeyes at his school on the CBS HQ show. Ohio State moved from 12th in the country to 7th in the country with the commitment. So the class is well on its way to be a top 5 rated class as they seem to always finish. OSU offensive coach Kevin Wilson coached Montgomery's father when he attended Miami (Ohio), so there was more than one connection for the young prospect.

Who Recruited Montgomery

Kevin Wilson and Justin Frye for Ohio State. Bill O'Brien for Alabama. Sherrone Moore for Michigan. Mike Elston and Marcus Freeman for Notre Dame. And Robbie Caldwell for Clemson.

Montgomery had over 30 Offers including Michigan, Ohio State, Clemson, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Alabama as his favorites.

Montgomery Visits

Ryan Day, line coach Justin Frye and Corey Dennis from Ohio State visited Montgomery during a basketball game in Findlay on January 14th. Offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson visited Findlay for a basketball practice shortly after. Montgomery visited Ohio State with his parents at the end of January. His parents thought he was ready to commit to the Buckeyes during the visit but he waited a little longer to consider other programs.

Other visits included Alabama on June 14th, 2021, USC on April 23rd of 2021, Clemson on June 15th, 2021, Georgia on June 12th, 2021, Georgia Tech on June 13th, 2021, Michigan on June 10th, 2021, Michigan State on June 26th, 2021, Penn State on July 25th, 2021, And Oklahoma on June 19th, 2021. After each visit he came back and still had Ohio State as the top program on his board.

Ranking

Montgomery is considered a 4 Star, 49th overall, 4th best offensive tackle, and the best prospect in Ohio.

Crystal Ball Predictions

Bill Kurelic, Steve Wiltfong, Sean Fitz, Justin Thind, JC Shurburtt, and Hale McGranahan all thought Ohio State. Joseph Hastings, Carson MacRae, Eric Lammers, Richard Schnyderite, Dylan Callaghan-Croley also all had Ohio State as his destination.

Scouting Report

Started as a tight end and defensive end but has grown into the tackle positions. Has the ability to pull and make plays out in space. Has experience at a number of spots on both sides of the line. Has a high school freshman brother, Ryan, that has also been offered a scholarship by Ohio State.

Perry Eliano Joins The Ohio State Buckeyes

Perry Eliano

There has been a lot of excitement and media coverage recently, surrounding the appointment of Perry Eliano as the new coach Safeties coach for the Ohio State Buckeye’s football team, with hopes and expectations significantly raised for the coming season. Much of the fervor can be genuinely justified, especially when analyzing his previous coaching record, which dates all the way back to the start of the century in 2001.

Perry Eliano Coaching Career

After a couple of years as an Assistant Graduate, Eliano went on to coach both running backs and wide receivers at Central Arkansas, and then after just one year away at Sam Houston, he progressed to secondary coach when he returned to the 'Natural State', right up until 2010. He then became the special teams co-ordinator for UTSA, before moving on to become Associate Head Coach at Bowling Green, in 2016. Within four years he had moved to Cincinnati to take on a similar position there, having a role with the Cincinnati Corner-Backs.

As a safety during his own career, it is obviously advantageous to Eliano that those experiences mean he is no stranger to the position, and as a consequence can put into practice everything acquired during those years and quite rightly be regarded as something of a specialist. Coaching in and around the Ohio is not actually anything completely new to Eliano either, as he previously coached under Luke Fickell, the former defensive tackle and long time OSU coach; as well as the two years that he had at Bowling Green.

Growing up in Texas

His roots are very much in the south, Killeen in Texas to be precise, born there in the May of 1978. He was an outstanding prep defensive back, and earned for himself honors in his senior season after starring in his group, which helped the Eagles to reach the state quarter-finals in the Class 5A. He went on to play college ball at Stephen F Austin, where he also got his first job.

Wide Receiver Kaleb Brown Attends NFA 7v7

KalebBrownOhioState

2022 All-American Kaleb Brown spent June working out at the NFA (National Football Association) 7v7 tournament.

The 5’11” 180 lbs. wide receiver from Chicago Illinois is considered the 5th best at his position in the country and a four star recruit. He is a selection for the 2022 All American Bowl on January 8th on NBC from San Antonio Texas.

Brown recently committed to play college football after Ohio State after being recruited by over 19 schools including Michigan, Notre Dame, Florida and Alabama. He has a relationship with two Wolverine teammates in AJ Henning and JJ McCarthy which led some to believe that he would end up in Ann Arbor. But Brian Hartline has kept constant contact with the highly sought after player and landed the deal.

Kaleb Brown At The Slot

Brown was featured as a tailback at Saint Rita High School but is projected to play slot receiver at the next level. Being a little different than the number of top rated receivers OSU has secured over the past three years could help Brown find the field.

He can get separation with burst and quickness and has great hands. He is a possibility in the kick return game early in his time in Columbus.

Kaleb Brown Visits

Brown was on an official visit to Ohio State when he made his commitment to the school. He stated that his relationship with receivers coach Hartline was a major factor and being recruited during the dead period showed who was really serious.

Turner has great speed, ability to make tackles, ball skills, and good strength.

What Turner Means for Ohio State

Ohio State CB Jyaire Brown from New Orleans

JyaireBrown

Ohio State got their first 2022 commit on Wednesday from New Orleans Warren Easton High School cornerback prospect Jyaire Brown. “Hollywood” Brown made the announcement on Twitter. The 6’1” 170lbs 2022 recruit is considered a 4 star prospect, the 16th best cornerback and the 122 best overall player in the country.

Many programs are just getting their 2021 classes started, but Ohio State has a class that is getting full and easily ranked the best in the country. Now they are beginning to look at the next class, making offers, and talking to recruits.

Jyaire Brown to LSU

Many thought he was headed to LSU including Billy Embody who had a crystal ball predication of 62% likely to stay in the South at Louisiana State. He also had offers from Florida State, Arkansas, Colorado, and Alabama. A total of 19 scholarship offers in all.

Brown’s family wanted him to wait a little before deciding but he went with his gut and pulled the trigger on the Buckeyes now.

Brown was born in Cincinnati and wanted to find his way back to the area with his college selection. His family is still a bunch of Buckeye fans and consider the school DBU.

Kerry Coombs was his recruiter at Ohio State and discussed coming back home with Brown. Warren Easton coordinator Munchie LeGaux knew Coombs from when he was a quarterback for the University of Cincinnati and Coombs was on the staff.

This is the first recruit for the Buckeyes in the area in over 15 years. Recruiting a sophomore early can be tricky but the staff must have liked what they see at this point.

What Jyaire Brown Offers Ohio State

Brown is a true cornerback with length that will be able to play press for OSU. His speed also makes him able to play zone when needed. And his physical play is something Ohio State wants in cornerbacks coming in to make tackles.

Coombs feels that Brown will fit well with the culture of the team. The Buckeyes offered Brown a scholarship 5 days prior to him committing. No visits have been made as the current pandemic has made that impossible.

Brown played the entire season as a starter on a state title competing team. He also plays basketball and runs track at Warren Easton. Some have compared Brown to Marshon Lattimore, an Ohio State graduate now playing for the New Orleans Saints.
