Ohio State picks up pledge from elite 4-star DE out of Florida
The Buckeyes have landed another major commitment for their 2022 recruiting class.
Kenyatta Jackson has officially committed to Ohio State after he chose the school over Oklahoma and Alabama.
Jackson is a top 100 overall prospect for the 2022 class and is listed as the No. 7 edge of the cycle ad the No. 11 player from his state (Florida).
Before cutting his list down to 3 finalists, Jackson had offers from more than 30 schools, including Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Penn State from the B1G.
When Jackson was asked why he chose OSU over the 2 other schools, he was quick to mention Buckeyes defensive line coach Larry Johnson.
“Chase Young, the Bosa Brothers, I believe he’ll develop me as a great pass rusher. Not only a great pass rusher, but a great man.”
