Ohio State has its quarterback for the 2023 recruiting class.

Ohio State offered two quarterbacks this summer in Austin Novosad and Brock Glenn, with Day determined to land one of them to add another high-caliber quarterback talent to Ohio State's quarterback room. 

For a while, it appeared Novosad may end up being Ohio State's 2023 quarterback after he camped with OSU on June 1 and took an official visit June 10-12. But in the end, Glenn was the 2023 signal-caller with the strongest desire to be a Buckeye, and he proved as much by committing to Ohio State on Saturday. 

The Glenn File

  • Class: 2023
  • Size: 6-2/195
  • Pos: QB
  • School: Lausanne Collegiate School (Memphis, Tennessee)
  • Composite Rating: ★★★★
  • Composite Rank: #335 (#17 QB)

The Buckeyes offered Glenn on June 7 even though he never camped with the Buckeyes. Day usually prefers to see quarterbacks to throw in person before making an offer, but made an exception for the Tennessee product.  

Glenn took his official visit to Columbus June 17-19 and was convinced by both Corey Dennis and Day that being developed as a quarterback by Ohio State was too good of an opportunity to pass up. 

While OSU continued to pursue Novosad, a Baylor commit, various insiders in the recruiting industry thought Glenn was a lock for Florida State after the decommitment of Chris Parson. But a commitment to the Seminoles never came, and he ended up becoming Ohio State’s top target to fill its quarterback spot for the current cycle.

Prospect Rating Data: 247Sports

As the Buckeyes’ chances of landing Novosad faded, contact with Glenn picked up significantly in the last couple of weeks. Day has always had a desire to take players with significant interest in being Buckeyes, and Glenn fits that mold.  

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound signal-caller is ranked as the 335th-best player nationally and the 17th-rated quarterback in 2023, per 247Sports’ composite rankings. 

Glenn will have to work hard to earn playing time at Ohio State. He'll enter a quarterback room next season with Kyle McCord and Devin Brown, who were both five-star recruits, while another five-star quarterback, Dylan Raiola, will arrive in 2024. But Glenn is coming to Columbus with the intent of becoming the Buckeyes' starting quarterback someday. 

As a junior, Glenn completed 97 of 155 passing attempts for 1,576 yards and 23 touchdowns with nine interceptions and ran 31 times for 161 yards with three touchdowns last season for Lausanne Collegiate School (Memphis, Tennessee).

He picked Ohio State over the likes of Florida State, Auburn, TCU, LSU, Illinois, Indiana, Memphis, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Tennessee.
