The youngest Ohio State quarterback commit got some recognition on Wednesday, picking up an invite to the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge as an underclassman.

The Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge is a three-day invite only event for the top-100 high school football players. McCord is just the second non-rising senior to receive an invite so far this year, joining four-star linebacker Keith Brown. He's also the first Ohio State commit to pick up an invite.
The No. 9 pro style quarterback and No. 116 player overall, McCord committed to Ohio State last month, joining five-star defensive end Jack Sawyer to give the Buckeyes a pair of early commitments in the 2021 class.
As a sophomore last season, McCord went 201-of-302 for 2,883 yards and 38 touchdowns through the air to lead his team to a Class 6A Pennsylvania State Title.
