It happened again! The Buckeyes and Urban Meyer has landed another commitment from a top 2016 prospect.
Another top prospect and soon-to-be senior in Ohio is now certain where he will be scoring touchdowns during his college career. According to Buckeye Grove, Demario McCall, a running back for North Ridgeville, has ended the recruiting process by giving Ohio State a verbal agreement to play for them while visiting the campus recently.
The Buckeyes can look forward to a solid future now. Demario, who stands 5'11" and weighs 180 pounds, is the eighth 2016 class prospect that has given Urban Meyer, head coach for OSU, and his coaching staff a verbal pledge so far.
While scholarship offers came from Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Georgia, Notre Dame and Michigan and others, Demario turned them all down in favor of Ohio State. 247 Sports Composite Rankings reveals that McCall, a four-star prospect, is rated as third as a running back and 49th overall recruit for the class of 2016.
McCall, who runs a sub-4.50 forty-yard dash, may not be a speedster, but he has the talent needed to play the ball on either side. Ohio State's coaching staff plans to use McCall's elusiveness in a similar manner in which they will use 2016 pledge George Hill from Hubbard. His talent will be used in the backfield and as receiver.
During his junior year, this future Buckeye barely left the turf while playing the entire field for North Ridgeville. He scored 35 touchdowns and racked up 2,300 rushing yards along with 4 interceptions and 39 tackles to finish the season.
