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.
Noah Potter is the fifth commitment for the Buckeyes 2019 roster. He will join offensive linemen, Doug Nester and Ryan Jacoby, Ronnie Hickman as a safety, and Sampson James in the running back position. Potter and the four other Buckeye commitments are all 4-star prospects. In addition to these players, Ohio State is also seeking to add the 5-star prospect, Nolan Smith II, and Marcus Hicks a 4-star prospect. Adding these players should bolster the already impressive 5th place national ranking for recruitment.
