Ohio State recruits the top high school players all across the country every season. Prep Tracker will provide a weekly glimpse into how each Ohio State commitment performs.
OFFENSIVE CHAMPION: JACK MILLER, QB, 2020
In his much-awaited return from a shoulder injury, four-star quarterback commit Jack Miller was back to his normal self and rallied his team to win on Friday, throwing for three touchdowns in a comeback victory.
Miller has been the source of conversation after Ohio State offered 2020 four-star quarterback C.J. Stroud, as the Buckeyes look to add another quarterback. Miller, however, reaffirmed his commitment to Ohio State last month and is aware the staff is looking to add another quarterback to the class.
Miller has had bad luck with injuries in his football career, sustaining injuries to his MCL, back, and shoulder, but Friday was another bounce-back performance as Miller went 19-for-30 through the air for three touchdowns and added 31 yards on the ground.
OTHER NOTABLE OFFENSIVE PERFORMANCES FROM BUCKEYE COMMITMENTS:
- Jaxon Smith-Njigba also returned from injury and had 3 receiving touchdowns
- Reid Carrico ran wild again breaking the 100-yard mark
- Defensive back commits Clark Phillips III and Lathan Ransom both caught touchdowns
DEFENSIVE CHAMPION: REID CARRICO, LB, 2021
Another week another defensive champion for Reid Carrico.
Carrico is a tackling machine at the high school level racking up double-digit tackles regularly. In a 46-0 shutout victory, Carrico had 12 tackles, two of which were for a loss.
At 6-foot-3 and 225 pound Carrico already looks the part of a college linebacker as just a junior in high school, and he looks like one on film as well.
OTHER NOTABLE DEFENSIVE PERFORMANCES FROM OHIO STATE COMMITMENTS;
- Mitchell Melton added on another sack to his already impressive season total
- Jack Sawyer tacked on a tackle for loss even though he was splitting time between both sides of the ball
- Darrion Henry had another solid week with multiple solo tackles
- Lejond Cavazos once again had multiple pass breakups
