For many, this Saturday’s game between Ohio State and Penn State has been one of those “circle” games on the schedule for some time.

Among those who are planning to be on hand to watch the rivalry matchup in Columbus between the two B1G East powers is Buckeyes recruit Keith Sampson, Jr. Ohio State was recently listed among the top ten schools being considered by the Class of 2023 defensive line prospect.

On Sunday, Sampson announced over his twitter account that he will be in attendance for the Buckeyes game with Penn State.

Sampson is a 4-star recruit, and ranked as the No. 217 recruit in his class. He plays football for New Bern High School in New Bern, North Carolina. He is ranked as the No. 6 prospect for the 2023 class in the state of North Carolina.

Among the other schools Sampson is considering are Duke, ECU, NC State, UNC, South Carolina, Virginia and Florida State. But the consensus is that OSU is among the top contenders with Alabama and Georgia.
