Another future Buckeye quarterback will be represented at the Elite 11 Finals as Ohio State commit Kyle McCord has earned a spot in the prestigious quarterback competition.
A five-star prospect, McCord is the No. 24 overall prospect and No. 3 pro-style quarterback in the 247Sports Composite recruiting rankings for the class of 2021. McCord joined Ohio State's top-rated recruiting class early, becoming the Buckeyes' second commitment in the 2021 class in April 2019, following only five-star defensive end Jack Sawyer.
McCord has a chance to add his chapter to an impressive Buckeye legacy at the competition. Of Ohio State's four current scholarship quarterbacks, three earned their way to the Elite 11 Finals, though current freshman Jack Miller missed most of last year's competition with an injury. The other two – Justin Fields and CJ Stroud – were named Elite 11 MVPs.
Since 2015, Ohio State has had five eventual signees earn a nod to the Elite 11 Finals with Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell each competing, as well.
