The Porter File

  • Class: 2025
  • Size: 6-3/190
  • Pos: Wide Receiver
  • School: Bergen Catholic (Oradell, New Jersey)
  • Composite Rating: ★★★★
  • Composite Rank: #49 (#8 WR)

Four-star 2025 wideout Quincy Porter becomes the latest highly touted wide receiver to commit to the Buckeyes, giving his pledge on Friday.

Porter originally had a commitment date set for July 14, but didn't need to wait that long after all. He canceled his Michigan visit scheduled for this weekend after a productive official visit to Ohio State last weekend, where Brian Hartline showcased the New Jersey product how much of a priority he is to the Buckeyes. In addition to the Wolverines, OSU also beat out Big Ten rival Penn State for his commitment.

Porter has been a longtime target of Hartline, earning his OSU offer in January of 2023. He visited campus multiple times in his recruitment and ultimately picked the Buckeyes because of OSU's developmental track record at the position and the potential to compete for national championships.

With Porter in the fold, OSU now has 15 commitments in 2025 and two wide receivers commits, as Porter joins De'zie Jones, a fellow New Jersey resident. He won't be the last wide receiver commitment in this class, though, as OSU still hopes to take either one or two more wide receivers. Other targets include Dakorien MooreDaylan McCutcheonPhillip Bell, Vernell Brown III and Jaime Ffrench Jr.

Prospect Rating Data: 247Sports Composite

Porter could be next potential elite outside receiver in OSU's offense

Per 247Sports' composite rankings, Porter is considered the No. 49 prospect and the No. 8 wideout in the 2025 class. He's also the No. 1 ranked player in New Jersey. With Porter's commitment, Ohio State strengthened its hold on the nation's No. 1 overall recruiting class per 247Sports

At 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, Porter profiles as a terrific outside receiver in OSU's offensive scheme with a limitless ceiling. Last season for Bergen Catholic, Porter recorded 41 receptions for 969 yards with 16 receiving touchdowns. He added 35 catches for 686 yards and 11 touchdowns as a sophomore and has also played defensive back in high school.

With his size, Porter has been a reliable red zone target for his team's offense and rarely loses jump ball battles, even occasionally in double coverage. By the same token, his frame makes him a nightmare matchup for smaller defensive backs. Porter is a smooth route runner and is adept at breaking tackles in open space and fighting for yards after the catch. 

His route tree isn't just limited to hitches and short yardage options, as Porter has had consistent success beating defensive backs deep. While he primarily lined up outside for his high school the past few years, Porter has occasionally been used in the slot to exploit a matchup advantage.
