In addition to its class of 15 scholarship signees on Wednesday, Ohio State also added a commitment from a preferred walk-on kicker this week.

Jack Deneher, a product of Dover, Ohio, announced his commitment to the Buckeyes on Thursday.

According to Deneher's local newspaper, the Times Reporter, he made 14 of 16 field goal attempts and 95 of 98 extra point attempts in his career at Dover High School, including all three of his field goal attempts and all 37 of his extra point attempts this past season.

Deneher is ranked as the No. 24 kicker in the class of 2019, according to Kohl's Kicking

With Sean Nuernberger set to exhaust his eligibility after the Rose Bowl, Deneher gives the Buckeyes additional depth at kicker for next season behind starter Blake Haubeil. The Buckeyes also currently have two other walk-on kickers on their roster in Dominic DiMaccio and Zach Hoover.
