Ohio State has its long snapper for the 2024 class.

Morrow Evans, the No. 2-ranked long snapper in the 2024 class according to Rubio Long Snapping, committed to Ohio State on Saturday, choosing the Buckeyes over Ole Miss and Texas A&M.

After making multiple visits to Columbus, including a trip to Ohio State's recent SummerFest, Evans decided to commit to Parker Fleming and the Buckeyes.

Evans, who plays at Episcopal High School in Bellaire, Texas, will begin his career as a preferred walk-on. An Adidas All-American, the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder was the winner of the fall camp and earned the Speed Champion award during the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in Texas in 2022. He has consistently been among the top long snappers at each camp he has attended.

A former teammate of current Ohio State left guard Donovan Jackson, Evans’ quick hands and motion, snap speed and running aggression on punts make him an elite long snapper who already appears to be college-ready going into his senior season of high school.

The Buckeyes have three long snappers on their current roster: John Ferlmann, Max Lomonico and Collin Johnson. Ferlmann, who transferred to Ohio State from Arizona State this offseason, is the only long snapper currently on scholarship and is expected to be the Buckeyes’ starting long snapper this year.

Ferlmann still has three years of collegiate eligibility, but Evans gives Ohio State a strong option to potentially be a future starter at the position for the Buckeyes.
