Michael Jordan, a 6’6”, 285-pound offensive tackle (and no, not that Michael Jordan!) from Canton, Michigan (Plymouth HS), announced Thursday that he is going to be a Buckeye.
Jordan is a four-star prospect and one who is ranked as the 16th best offensive tackle by 247sports and No.156 overall. In picking Ohio State, he turned down home schools Michigan and Michigan State as well as Notre Dame and host of other major college programs.
More from Alex Gleitman of Bucknuts:
He joins Tyler Gerald and Jack Wohlabaugh as offensive linemen in OSU’s 2016 haul. Sources tell 247Sports that the Buckeyes may look to add one more player at the position for this class if it is the right player, but they are happy with their crop and could call it a day should numbers be needed elsewhere, or if they cannot get an elite prospect to fill a fourth spot on the line.
Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has already seen 15 players (13 are four-star prospects according to 247sports) commit to the program for the 2016 class. With the Buckeyes coming off a championship season, it has been nothing but roses for Meyer’s squad ever since.
247sports now ranks the Buckeyes as having the second-best class for 2016.
