Ohio State recruits the top high school players all across the country every season. Prep Tracker will provide a weekly glimpse into how each Ohio State commitment performs.
KEY STATS AND NOTES
- Ohio State commitments and their teams had a record of 25-2 this week
- Jack Miller remains out with a bone bruise
- Jaxon Smith-Njigba is healthy and was told to rest this week even though he could have played
- Grant Toutant injured his labrum last week and will need surgery
OFFENSIVE CHAMPION: JULIAN FLEMING, WR, 2020
Julian Fleming is the number one wide receiver in the 2020 class and he backed up that ranking against Jersey Shore High School.
Even though Fleming plays in run-heavy offense, he continues to put up record numbers. He had 5 receptions for 126 yards and two touchdowns on Friday night, bringing him to 65 career receiving touchdowns, putting him at 16th on the all-time high school career receiving touchdown record books.
Fleming can do just about anything asked of him at the receiver position and because of that, he puts up great numbers week after week. This week was no different with another multiple touchdown day.
OTHER NOTABLE OFFENSIVE PERFORMANCES FROM OHIO STATE COMMITMENTS
- Cameron Martinez had over 300 total yards of offense and 4 touchdowns
- Reid Carrico had 4 rushing touchdowns
- Jayden Ballard added another receiving touchdown to his season total.
DEFENSIVE CHAMPION: DARRION HENRY, DL, 2020
Friday was the high point of a solid senior season for Darrion Henry. While his overall numbers were nothing too eye-popping, his sack total showed the progress Henry has made.
Henry had two sacks against Middletown, a welcomed sight. Last spring, Henry injured his shoulder and it never healed properly going into this summer. After his performance on Friday it seems safe to say that Darrion Henry is back to his healthy self.
OTHER NOTABLE DEFENSIVE PERFORMANCES FROM OHIO STATE COMMITMENTS
- Reid Carrico had 20 total tackles
- Lejond Cavazos once again had numerous tackles and pass breakups
