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.
