Stover has played at linebacker and safety in high school, and it’s unclear where he best slots in for the future. Either way, he is a strong defender and is a nice pickup for the Buckeyes.

Stover’s commitment gives Ohio State 3 early pledges for the class of 2024, including from the nation’s No. 1 player in QB Dylan Raiola.
