Buckeyes Strike Recruiting Gold In California

Ryan Day's first full Ohio State recruiting class keeps getting better. Linebacker Kourt Williams, a 4-star prospect out of Bellflower, California, a Los Angeles suburb, announced Wednesday that he was joining the Buckeyes 2020 recruit class.

Williams is the 22nd player in Ohio State's 2020 class, which is currently ranked No. 3 nationally by 24-7 sports. Of the 22 commitments, 15 are out of state prospects and Williams is the second top prospect from California to choose Ohio State, joining defensive back Clark Phillips. At 6'1, 215, Williams is a high school linebacker but at Ohio State he may eventually play the bullet position--a linebacker and safety hybrid--in the Buckeye defense coordinated by Greg Mattison and Jeff Hafley. Like most prospects who commit to OSU, Williams highlight tape is very impressive and shows off his speed and athleticism. You can check it out below. Also below is an updated list of the Buckeye 2020 commits.
