Jermaine Mathews is closing in on his college decision. He’s also considering a pair of B1G programs in the East division.

Mathews is listed as a 6-feet, 175 lb. ATH out of Cincinnati, Ohio for the class of 2023. He unveiled his top 6 programs on Wednesday with Ohio State and Penn State making the cut.

Luke Fickell and hometown Cincinnati were also listed alongside Deion Sanders’ Jackson State program, LSU and Oklahoma. Mathews also set July 1 for his commitment date.

According to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, Mathews is a 4-star prospect and the No. 24 ATH nationally for the class of 2023. He is also the No. 9 player out of the state of Ohio for the cycle.

As things currently stand, the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions are battling it out for the top recruiting class in the B1G. Ohio State has launched up to the No. 2 recruiting class nationally and tops in the conference after adding a pair of 5-star receivers this week.

Right behind the Buckeyes is Penn State with the No. 3 recruiting class in the nation. The Nittany Lions recently added 4-star DL Tomarrion Parker out of Alabama who hinted at more good news to come on the recruiting trail.
