The recent success of Ohio State football recruiting took another turn on Monday as head coach Urban Meyer and and the Buckeyes received their fifth commitment of the 2015 class as three-star offensive tackle Grant Schmidt pledged his allegiance to the program.
Schmidt was at the Ohio State football camp on Sunday, and then following that experience, he had a meeting with coach Meyer and staff which ultimately sealed the deal. He made his commitment known before he left Columbus.
The Sioux Falls, SD native comes in at 6-6 and 275-pounds and chose Ohio State over other offers from the likes of the Minnesota Golden Gophers, North Carolina Tar Heels, Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Washington State Cougars and Utah Utes.
According to 247 Sports, the decision was made at the camp to extend the offer to Schmidt after he put on a rather impressive performance for the coaching staff.
Schmidt had a very good performance at the Buckeyes’ camp on Sunday. He worked out under the watch of Ohio State offensive line coach Ed Warinner and the push was on to bring him into the fold.
The Buckeyes’ recruiting class for 2015 seems to be on a roll as of late which should calm some of the pessimists that were concerned with the way things were going. Schmidt adds his name to the list of two other recruits who have committed to Ohio State in the last month which includes QB Joe Burrow and ATH Tyler Green.
