Ohio State CB Jyaire Brown from New Orleans

Ohio State CB Jyaire Brown from New Orleans


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.

Ohio State’s 2022 Class

Ohio State could add in-state players Tegra Tshabola, Gabe Powers or CJ Hicks to the 2022 class shortly.

Ohio State will lose many of the current defensive backs before Brown comes to campus, so they have been busy finding the next great crop of Buckeye corners.
