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: KYLE MCCORD, QB, 2021
Kyle McCord and his St. Joe's team cruised to a 65-7 win over Archbishop Ryan on Saturday.
McCord did not play much in the blowout win, but he made the most of his snaps. The future Buckeye completed six passes for 194 yards and four touchdowns, seeing just one quarter of action.
McCord is quite easily one of the best junior quarterbacks in the country and he put it all on display this past Saturday with only seven passing attempts.
OTHER NOTABLE PERFORMANCES FROM BUCKEYE COMMITMENTS:
- Jack Miller threw 3 touchdown passes in an upset victory
- Jack Sawyer also threw for 4 touchdowns and got the win
- Julian Fleming became the first-ever player from Pennsylvania to have 5,000 career receiving yards
Congratulations to @ChapfootballAZ on their upset win tonight over Pinnacle! Let's check in with @jackjamesmiller, the future Ohio State Buckeyes' quarterback. #therealdeal. #varsityzone pic.twitter.com/zRjOQXSi9F— Tresa Tudrick (@tresatudrick) October 26, 2019
DEFENSIVE CHAMPION: DARRION HENRY, DL, 2020
Once again Darrion Henry had a solid performance if you look at the stat line, with two solo tackles and and one sack, but the most important thing about Henry's performance was that his tackles came in timely parts of the game.
Henry and his Princeton team needed this win to clinch a Division I playoff spot for the first time in almost 10 years, and they got their win by a slim margin on the back of Paris Johnson on offense and Darrion Henry leading the defense.
Henry's sack closed the door on Lakota West when they needed a touchdown to win

With his sack, Henry's sack he displayed some of that elite get-off and bend that makes him so highly coveted coming out of high school.
He also provided a quick and concise prediction for the Ohio State game that proved to be very accurate.
