Alpha Male Darvon Hubbard Makes A He-Man Commitment

DarvonHubbard

Commitments continue to pour in from the Ohio State class of 2020. And the latest to make the pledge was Darvon Hubbard, a 4-star player with the highest recorded carries on his running back. At the height of six feet and weight of 200 pounds, you would think that the alpha male would be less mobile than most. And you're wrong.

Darvon Hubbard has a rather Ronaldo-like speed and agility on the American football field. Heavy as he is, OSU's sixth commitment for the class defies the laws of physics rivaling an X-Man. No doubt, records will continue to be broken as Darvon Hubbard teams up like a glue with pal, Jack Miller who's a record-breaker in his own right. No wonder David Hubbard has received offers from all the major football schools in the country.

Dwan Mathis Shifts Loyalties To Ohio State

DwanMathisd

Dwan Mathis Switches from MSU to the Buckeyes

Dwan Mathis, Oak Park native, has made the decision to shift his dedication from Michigan State to Ohio State. It wasn't an easy decision, only made after careful consideration. Mathis is a four star prospect and ranks at 251 in his class. Having committed to MSU in 2017, Mathis, at just under six and a half feet tall and weighing in at 195 pounds has now become the sole quarterback in the new class of OSU.

The Ohio State Visit

Dwan's father, Terence Mathis, explained that the Spartans granted Dwan permission to visit Ohio State, and he, along with his family, made the visit on Friday. Coach Urban Meyer, and his staff, as well as the impressive cast of dual threat quarterbacks their program has produced (J.T. Barrett, Braxton Miller, Terrelle Pryor) provided the strong impetus to help Dwan shift his loyalties. In addition, he also had the chance to visit with another running quarterback new to the Buckeyes, Dwayne Haskins. This past November, Haskins was able to demonstrate his skills when he led Ohio's team to victory over Michigan when he stepped in for Barrett when he was injured.

Breaking News on Craig Young Ohio State Recruitment - Three star player Craig Young signs for Ohio State: How This Affects the Buckeyes

Cade Stover Finally Commits To Ohio State

CadeStover

Why did Cade Stover Wait

It was shocking to many that it took so long for four-star linebacker Cade Stover to commit to the Buckeyes. Last spring, Ohio State offered a scholarship to Stover that most felt he would take in a matter of a few days. Cade was not in a rush to commit to any school at that time. He said he was enjoying the recruitment process. It took him nearly a year before he committed to Ohio State.

What Finally Sealed the Deal with Stover

Stover said he finally decided on Ohio State because of the family atmosphere. He had over two dozen offers from other schools that include Penn State, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma, Michigan, Notre Dame and Texas. Reportedly, Ohio State had their sites on Stover for quite some time. Along with Cade, there were only a few other sophomores invited to attend the January 2017 Junior Day. The Buckeyes made an offer to Stover several weeks later when he returned to the campus to watch spring practice. Over the next few months, Stover returned to Ohio State to strengthen his relationship with head coach Urban Meyer.

Keyshawn Woods Is The Next Andrew Dakich But Better

KeyshawnWoods

Andrew Dakich was one of the biggest reasons why OSU did so well during their first season under Chris Holtmann. His leadership skills coupled with his abilities as the backup point guard made the fifth-year senior stand out during his last year of eligibility. Keyshawn Woods represents all of that and even more.

Having committed to the Buckeyes a couple of weeks after attending a spring football game, Woods picked OSU over Louisville and Virginia Tech. Dakich spent only his final year of eligibility with the Buckeyes, and it looks like Woods is going to do the same. He's bringing some very impressive numbers along with him.

When he played his freshman year at Charlotte, Woods averaged 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game on top of an 8.4 point scoring average. The 182 lbs. The 6-foot 3-inch guard shot 47 percent beyond the arc in the 32 games he played. Despite being a backup, Woods started on three different occasions that year.

Noah Potter And Ohio State

Potter

Last Monday night would come to a close with a commitment to Ohio from Noah Potter. The 6'5", 250 pound defensive end hails from mentor Ohio and is the number 8 prospect for the 2019 class in Ohio.

This is the fifth commitment that the Buckeyes have received for their 2019 roster. Noah Potter is the first commitment by a defensive lineman. Noah Potter will be joining a former teammate that is also on the team, Ryan Jacoby. Potter's brother, Micah, is already a sophomore at Ohio State and plays for the basketball team.

Potter is a physically large defensive end yet he maintains a high level of athleticism. These combined attributes make him a formidable defensive player. However, the Buckeyes hope to further develop this physic and hope to help him add 20 to 30 pounds as he gets older. The coaches recognize his talents already and aim to help him set that bar even higher. It is believed that Potter will see time in the coming season considering the looming departure for Nick Bosa to the Draft.
