4-Star Defensive End Favors Ohio State
March 2 , 2015
Maryland may be in the Big Ten now but that doesn't mean they will get the best players from the area.
The Buckeyes picked up a 2016 commitment in four-star defensive end Terrell Hall from St. John's College High School in Washington D.C. Hall announced his commitment on his Twitter account.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Hall is rated the #3 defensive end and the #42 player in the 2016 recruiting class by 247Sports. Hall was in Columbus for Ohio State's National Championship celebration at Ohio Stadium and had offers for schools including Michigan, Penn State, Maryland, Iowa, Florida State, Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Tennessee and others.
Hall is the second defensive end committed in the 2016 class, joining Gahanna Lincoln's Jonathon Cooper, who committed in November. He is the seventh member of this class for Ohio State's.
Hill Decides On OSU To Start The Buckeyes 2016 Class
June 15, 2014
He still has two years of high school ball to play, but George Hill thought the time was right to become the first commitment to Ohio State's class of 2016.
The runningback from Hubbard High School here in Ohio had over 1,100 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns his sophomore season. His team was 12-0 before losing to Akron St Vincent- St Mary in the D3 regional final. The 6' 1", 185 back had other scholarship offers including Michigan State.
"It feels good to be a Buckeye." Hill said. "It meant a lot to be able to play for my state school."
