Jayden Bonsu is a 2023 Safety, 6'2" 210lbs., from St. Peters Prep HS Hillside, NJ. He committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes on 8-14-2022 after waiting an extra week to make his commitment. At his press conference to announce his decision he said Ohio State was the best fit for him.
St Peter’s Preparatory School
St. Peter’s Preparatory School, (SPPS) an all-boys college preparatory school in Jersey City, New Jersey, prepares young men to become leaders in the global community through a unique approach to education emphasizing intellectual growth, spiritual formation and service for others. It became a co-educational institution beginning fall 2020.
The 3 Star recruit is considered the 24th best national safety and the 4th best in the state of NJ overall.
Jayden Bonsu Crystal Bowl Predictions
Bonsu was projected to be an Ohio State lean by Steve Wiltfong (247 Sports) on August 4th. David Lake, Gaby Urrutia, Sean Scherer, Justin Thind, Bill Kurelic, and Brian Dohn also projected Ohio State the week of August 4th.
Why Ohio State Football
Bonsu was recruited by corners coach Perry Eliano and head coach Ryan Day. The two coaches made him feel at home which led to his selection of the Buckeyes. He also felt Ohio State runs a similar scheme to his high school, making the transition easy. The city of Columbus was also a selling point for the recruit when he visited in June.
Bonsu visited Ohio State on June 17th, Miami of Florida on June 3rd, and Michigan State on June 10th. Available stats include 62 tackles made as a junior in 2021, with 2 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, 2.5 sacks and 7.5 tackles for loss.
Bonsu follows linebacker Cody Simon from St. Peter's Prep to Ohio State. He liked the winning tradition at Ohio State and their consistent playoff runs.
