Buckeyes land 2020 OL recruit Jakob James


Ohio State landed yet another commit to the Class of 2020 on Monday night when Cincinnati native Jakob James announced he was committing to the Buckeyes.

James is a three-star recruit according to 247 Sports, the 69th best offensive tackle and the 17th ranked recruit from Ohio in the Class of 2020.

The 6’5, 275 lb. offensive tackle had offers from Boston College, Michigan, LSU, Penn State among the 21 schools that have been recruiting him.

The Buckeyes already had two 2020 commits to the offensive line, Paris Johnson Jr. (6th overall, #1 OT) and  Luke Wypler (35th overall, #1 C) among their seven commits which currently gives them the 3rd ranked recruiting class in college football.

Head coach Ryan Day hit the ground running in recruiting once he was named the replacement for Urban Meyer in early December.

Ohio State had the 11th ranked class for 2019 which included flipping five-star defensive end Zach Harrison from Michigan and retaining five-star wide receiver Garrett Wilson among the fifteen who signed early last month.

They’re also expecting four-star offensive lineman Doug Nester to sign in a couple weeks who has been committed to the Buckeyes since August 2017.

However, Nester is visiting Penn State and Virginia Tech on January 26 and February 2 according to 247 Sports with National Signing Day two weeks from Wednesday on February 6.
