Ryan Day has secured his first commitment as head coach.

After decommitting from Boston College back on Nov. 19, Ohio State seemed to be the favorite to land four-star linebacker Tommy Eichenberg.

Well, Eichenberg indeed announced in favor of the Buckeyes today when he decided to end his recruitment once again and pledge to new head coach Ryan Day.

The Eichenberg File

  • Class: 2019
  • Size: 6-foot-3, 225 pounds
  • Pos: LB
  • School: St. Ignatius (Cleveland, OH)
  • Composite Rating: ★★★★
  • Composite Rank: 19 (LB)

He becomes the 17th member of Ohio State's '19 Dynasty recruiting class, following Florida running back Marcus Crowley, who did so back on Nov. 4, and New Albany punter Michael O'Shaughnessy, who committed on Nov. 30.

Eichenberg, a composite four-star and the No. 19 overall inside linebacker in the 2019 class, hails from perennial Ohio powerhouse St. Ignatius in Cleveland, the same high school as current Buckeye defensive lineman Dre'Mont Jones.

Eichenberg joins Cade Stover as the two linebacker commits in Ohio State's 2019 class, although the Buckeyes are also targeting Clayton, Ohio star Jestin Jacobs, who is currently committed to Iowa.

At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Eichenberg is ranked as the 8th-best overall prospect in the state of Ohio and the 19th-best inside linebacker in the nation. He ran the football 151 times this season for 1,550 yards and 20 scores.

Eleven Warriors will have more on his pledge shortly.
