Given that he is the No. 3 overall recruit in the country and he plays his high school football just outside Ohio State's backyard, Olentangy Orange defensive end Zach Harrison might be the Buckeyes' top priority for the class of 2019.
Harrison showed part of why he is such a highly regarded recruit on Wednesday, when he posted elite times for a man of his size in the 100- and 200-meter dash in a track dual meet against Olentangy Liberty.
Zach Harrison of Olentangy Orange ran 10.82 for 100 meters and 21.55 for 200 in a dual track meet against Olentangy Liberty tonight in the rain. Those are ridiculous times for a guy about 6-5, 230. That's why he's the top rated junior football prospect in the country.— Steve Blackledge (@BlackiePreps) April 19, 2018

Ohio State has an impressive track record of recruiting and developing star defensive ends, especially since defensive line coach Larry Johnson arrived in Columbus, and if Harrison chooses to become a Buckeye, he certainly has the potential to be next.
