The Buckeyes offered a scholarship to Denton (Texas) Ryan cornerback Austin Jordan very early in the process. Today Jordan dropped his Top 10 and as expected Ohio State was on his list. Jordan posted his list on his Twitter account.
Jordan’s Top 10 are Ohio State, Texas, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Penn State, Oklahoma, Georgia, Texas A&M, USC and Auburn.
The Buckeyes offered the 5-foot-11 and 185-pound Jordan a scholarship in late October, 2019.
Jordan is a 4-star prospect in the 247Sports rankings. He is the country’s No. 85 overall 2022 prospect, the No. 12 cornerback and the No. 16 prospect in Texas.
The Buckeyes signed three outstanding cornerbacks in their 2021 recruiting class, Jakailin Johnson from Missouri, Jordan Hancock from Georgia and Denzel Burke from Arizona. They also signed at least one other defensive back that could eventually play cornerback at Ohio State.
The Buckeye staff currently has commitments from two of the country’s top 2022 cornerbacks in 5-star Jaheim Singletary and 4-star Jyaire Brown. But the goal is to add at least one more outstanding cornerback to the Ohio State 2022 recruiting class. Ohio State defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs has done a great job of recruiting cornerbacks for the Buckeyes and now secondary coach Matt Barnes is working to add to the talent the Buckeyes have assembled in the defensive backfield.
The Buckeyes also have recruited the state of Texas very well in recent years including landing commitments from 5-star quarterback Quinn Ewers and 5-star wide receiver Caleb Burton for their 2022 recruiting class and signing 5-star offensive lineman Donovan Jackson in their 2021 class.
The Buckeyes have a spectacular start to their 2022 recruiting class. They have commitments from the country’s No. 1 overall prospect in 5-star quarterback Quinn Ewers from Texas, 5-star Singletary from Florida, another 5-star in wide receiver Caleb Burton from Texas, the No. 1 prospect in Ohio and the country’s No. 2 outside linebacker Gabe Powers, the No. 1 prospect in the state of Kansas in linebacker Dasan McCullough, the No. 2 prospect in Ohio in linebacker C.J. Hicks, the No. 4 prospect in the Buckeyes State in offensive lineman Tegra Tshabola, the No. 5 prospect in Ohio in cornerback Brown, and two top tight end targets in Bennett Christian from Georgia and Benji Gosnell from North Carolina. It is a class of ten early commitments with nine of the ten being 5 or high 4-star prospects. It is a class that is ranked as the country’s No. 1 recruiting class in the 247Sports Composite team recruiting rankings.
