In late May of last year, Joe Burrow ended Ohio State's 2015 commitment drought when he announced via Twitter that he was a Buckeye. He became the third member of the "Elite '15." Today the Buckeyes picked up their sixth commitment in what could be an Ohio-heavy 2016 class when Cincinnati Moeller tight end Jake Hausmann committed during a visit to Ohio State with his parents.
Hausmann, a 6-foot-5, 235-pounder from the Queen City, is a high school teammate of current Buckeye Sam Hubbard.
The Hausmann File
- Size: 6-5/235
- Pos: TE
- School: Archbishop Moeller (Cincinnati, OH)
- Composite Rating: ★★★★
- Composite Rank: 3 (TE)
As the country's sixth-ranked tight end prospect for 2016, Hausmann has already picked up a number of major offers outside of Ohio State. Michigan, Notre Dame, Florida State and more have thrown their name into the ring recently, but with strong family ties to the Buckeyes, and a comfort with the coaching staff, Hausmann ended his recruitment early and he won't look back.
As the Buckeye state's 6th-ranked player in 2016, Hausmann is a big-bodied tight end capable of stretching the field vertically but is also an excellent run blocker. He's got a frame that can easily accommodate another 20-25 pounds and he's got plenty of time to add "good weight."
