Styles, out of Pickerington Central (OH), reclassified as a 5-star recruit in Ohio State’s 2022 recruiting class. Moreover, he was the 27th ranked player in his class by 247 Sports and the 2nd-best safety. He recorded 55 tackles and 2 interceptions for Pickerington Central in 2021. He added 4 picks as a sophomore to go along with 33 tackles in 7 contests. Styles enrolled at Ohio State back on June 1st.

His father, Lorenzo Styles, played for the Buckeyes from 1992-94. Styles also has a brother, Lorenzo Styles Jr., who plays wide receiver at Notre Dame. His family pedigree certainly points to a solid career in the Scarlet and Gray.

Could Styles be the next great defensive back at Ohio State? Only time will tell, but its a good shoutout to get from your head coach.
