Perry Eliano met with the media on Tuesday to discuss how Ohio State’s secondary is looking in camp, and a recurring theme of his session was Sonny Styles.

Styles was a 5-star prospect originally in the 2023 recruiting class that reclassified and joined the Buckeyes a year ago. He appeared in 10 games as he got acclimated to the college game and finished with 9 tackles.

During Eliano’s session, he described Styles as a “unicorn” and said his goal is simply to find the best opportunities for every player.

“He’s kind of a unicorn, so to speak. I love the kid,” said Eliano. “We’re just trying to create the very best opportunities for our guys to be on the field to give us the very best chance to win games.”

He went on to describe putting a plan together for Styles on his development and potential usage. Eliano also had high praise for Styles’ approach to the game.

“There’s nothing difficult at all, we know exactly what we want to do with him,” Eliano said. “We created a great plan for him to start it through and we’re excited about what it’s going to look like…

“I just see an outstanding young man that’s extremely coachable, committed, selfless. He’s the true definition of a Buckeye.”

Listed at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, Styles has great length in the secondary and became one of the few players able to reclassify and see playing time as a 17-year-old. Now with a season under his belt, the sky truly is the limit for Styles entering 2023.
