Ryan Day praises freshman Sonny Styles' play on special teams
Ryan Day is high on highly-touted freshman Sonny Styles. The Buckeye head coach made his comments known on the 6-foot-4, 222-pound safety.
Ryan Day on Sonny Styles: “He’s got a chance to be special … Usually guys find their way on special teams first before they play on offense or defense, and Sonny’s a good example of that.”

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.
