Ohio State Lands 4-Star OT Max Wray


Four-star offensive tackle Max Wray committed to Ohio State. The Buckeyes are getting one of the better O-Linemen in the 2018 class.


With the way Urban Meyer and his staff are recruiting, don’t expect much dropoff from Ohio State any time soon.

The Buckeyes received a pledge from four-star offensive tackle Max Wray on Saturday morning, helping the team land one of the better offensive linemen in the Class of 2018.

The Franklin, TN, native chose Ohio State over Alabama, LSU and Tennessee. The 6-foot-7, 289-pounder took a three-day trip to Columbus last week with his family, the first visit since the Buckeyes offered him a scholarship last month. Wray, who was formerly committed to Georgia, was not expected to decide on his school of choice until May, but he chose the Buckeyes on the day that the team is holding its spring game. Many recruiting experts believed that he was destined to stay in SEC country even after his decommitment from the Bulldogs.

Wray is the sixth pledge for Ohio State’s 2018 class, joining five-star defensive tackle Taron Vincent, four-star dual-threat quarterback Emory Jones, four-star safety Jaiden Woodbey, four-star running back Brian Snead and four-star all-purpose back Jaelen Gill. Five-star in-state offensive tackle Jackson Carman remains a top priority.

The offensive tackle has elected to extend his stay with his family in Columbus through Sunday, which means that he is obviously enjoying his stay. With his younger brother, Jake, already being targeted by some of the top programs in the country for the Class of 2020, Meyer may be looking to land multiple Wrays for the Buckeyes.
