As the month of July continues to roll on, we sports fans know that we are limited in what we can watch. Thankfully there is baseball still on. There is even some Canadian Football on, but nothing equates to the love, and passion of college football. Us Buckeye fans can not wait to see Ohio State football this fall!

Thankfully as I write this, we are down to just fifty days till the college football season kicks off! There is no better feeling than waking up and watching some college football on a fall afternoon.

We are continuing our trend of star freshman previews and this will be the first one that we do that involves the defensive side of the ball. Our first ones were Brandon Inniss, Carnell Tate, Noah Rogers, and Jelani Thurman. Introducing, Jason Moore, out of Hyattsville MD.

Moore comes in with elite size for being a true freshman. Standing in at 6’6 260 pounds according to Ohio State’s official roster. If there is one thing coaches will tell you, it’s that you can’t teach size. Moore is already ahead of schedule in that department.

Out of DeMatha Catholic, Moore was listed as one of the best defensive linemen in the country. He was ranked 75th overall by 247Sports. Moore held offers from just about every school in the country.

The Ohio State football program had to battle teams like Notre Dame, Michigan, and others to land this commitment. It was considered a big recruiting victory.

So what is there to like about Jason Moore on film? Well, he is definitely a game-changer. When you have 14 sacks as a junior in high school, you are doing something right. He really knows how to use his height and size to his advantage against his opponents.

We probably won’t get to see much of Moore this fall. It is not due to anything of his fault. However, he is behind guys like Jack Sawyer, and J.T. Tuimoloau who have the potential to be first-round draft picks in the NFL draft this coming Spring. Moore gets the chance to learn behind these now older and wiser players.

Moore gets the chance to have a full season to develop his rush moves and technique. You can always enhance your game, and there aren’t many better teachers than Coach Larry Johnson. Guys want to play for Coach Johnson. He has developed and produced so much NFL talent. Moore gets to improve his game, and when it is time for Sawyer and Tuimoloau to go to the next level, Moore will be ready for a starting spot.

He will be able to get playing time this year. He will get some late-game playing time in some blowouts. This will be a good time to see how he can do in real-time game time. Sure it will be against lower-level competition, but you can see a lot out of a player in those moments.

If Moore can capitalize and really show his potential, he will make a statement for a starting spot in the 2024 season. With his size and his potential, the sky is the limit for Jason Moore!
