The 6-foot-6, 295-pound Nester is considered the 10th-best offensive tackle and No. 57 prospect overall in the Class of 2019. He became the first member of Ohio State’s Dynasty ’19 recruiting class last August when he picked the Buckeyes over finalists Alabama, Florida, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
The All-American Bowl — formerly known as the U.S. Army All-American Bowl — will be held at the Alamodome in San Antonio on Jan. 5, 2019. It will be broadcast live on NBC at 1 p.m. EST.
Nester will be joined on the East Squad by Ohio State four-star athlete pledge “Rocket” Ronnie Hickman, while five-star wide receiver commit Garrett Wilson will play for the West.
The Buckeyes have been well-represented in the All-American Bowl over the last several years, having led all programs in commits invited to the game for three-consecutive classes.
