New Chapter Begins in Columbus
The 6’1 190-pound senior from Steilacoom high school narrowed his final choices down to Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Washington. He also had offers from Clemson, Alabama, and just about every other Power 5 school in the country.
In the end, his relationship with Ohio State’s head coach Ryan Day and wide receiver coach Brian Hartline, and the success of the Buckeye program, led to his decision. He will join Jayden Ballard and Marvin Harrison Jr. in this year’s 2021 class at Ohio State. The trio makes up an exceptional wide receiver group coming into Columbus.
