Luke Farrell Commits To Ohio State

Luke Farrell

The Buckeyes are going to have another four-start prospect in 2016, and that prospect is none other than Luke Farrell.

In the past it looked inevitable, and apparently it was because it is now official, Farrell is a Buckeye. Farrell committed to Ohio State at Ohio Stadium, at its Friday Night Lights camp. The player did have other offers, which included Wisconsin, Duke and Nebraska.

As for where Farrell ranks, he ranks as the 7th tight end in the country, as well as the 158th overall prospect, and this means that Ohio State has three of the top 15 tight ends in the nation. Some of the top prospects that have committed also include Jake Hausmann and Kierre Hawkins. Hawkins spoke about Farrell, saying that the school views Farrell as a Noah Brown-style 'H' and that sentiment was referenced back when Farrell spoke about Ohio State in June.

The exceptional quarterback stands 6'3" and weighs 225lbs.

He may be big but he is able to move well and avoid incoming defense. His exploits have made people compare him to Cardale Jones of Ohio State. They have similar size and arm strength although Wallace is faster and better in the open field.
