Could the Ohio State football team get five-star tackle David Sanders Jr.?

The last five-star tackle to commit to the Ohio State football program was Paris Johnson Jr. in 2020. If Ohio State is able to sign David Sanders Jr, it would be good for an offensive line that needs talent.

One concern for the Ohio State football program in 2024, is their offensive line. In the Cotton Bowl, it looked horrible. It was clear that was the main issue. David Sanders Jr. is an offensive tackle that stands at 6'6 and weighs 270 pounds. He was ranked as one of the best recruits in the nation, and the number-one player at his position.

He has narrowed his list down to six teams; South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, Tennessee, and of course Ohio State. He has been in the process of scheduling some visits and has seemed positive about the Ohio State's program. He said some things like, "They're a really good program, and they are known for making offensive tackles first-round picks."

Ohio State has done a lot of good work early with the 2025 recruiting class, especially on the defensive side of the ball. They are on pace to have one of the best secondary classes in school history. Now they are trying to do some work on the offensive side of the ball.

Justin Frye needs a big recruiting win. He was a coach that was on the chopping block at the end of the season. He needs to prove that he can land some big-time recruits. Since he's been with the Buckeyes, he hasn't landed a five-star recruit on the offensive line.

We'll have to see if Sanders Jr. likes the Buckeyes enough to commit. It's still early in his recruitment and he still has a lot of visits to take. The addition of Chip Kelly as the offensive coordinator could help the Ohio State football program in the recruitment of Sanders Jr.

The offensive line is the number-one concern moving forward. They don't have a lot of depth at any position up front. If Justin Frye is going to be with the Buckeyes moving forward, he needs to do better on the recruiting trail.
