Jaxon Smith-Njigba Brings 4-star Receiving Talents To OSU

Jaxon Smith-Njigba Brings 4-star Receiving Talents To OSU


Well, it looks like another WR out of the state of Texas is headed to OSU.

Slow Month for Ohio State

The Buckeyes have been fairly quiet lately. After the Zach Smith scandal and Urban Meyer's suspension, it didn't seem like the college had much time to recruit in the month of August. Commits started to slow down with the regular season starting, so OSU was only able to nab Jameson Williams in that time.

Big Recruits

They've broken their recruiting drought in a huge way after grabbing 2019 RB Marcus Crowley as well as 2020 WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba.

That makes Smith-Njigba the seventh member of the 2020 class at OSU, and he's notably the only receiver so far. He'll more than likely get to know OSU's future QB Jack Miller very well over the next year before he formally signs with the team. His commitment should help to keep the Buckeyes in contention for the top 2020 class nationwide even though things are pretty early at this point.

Joins Another Texas Receiver

2019 WR Garrett Wilson should also be a familiar face to Smith-Njigba. They're both from Texas and both seemed to get along pretty well while they were on campus watching OSU edge out a victory 36-31 over Nebraska.

The native of Rockwall, Texas was rated #288 in players overall nationwide as well as the #59 receiver according to writers. Just like the other six players in the 2020 OSU class, Smith-Njigba is a four-star athlete according to an overwhelming consensus of various sportswriters across the country.
