The Ohio State Buckeyes’ 2018 recruiting class just got a whole lot better. Max Wray, from Franklin High School in Franklin, Tennessee, committed to the Buckeyes approximately two hours before the Spring Game. According to 247sports composite recruit rankings, Wray is the fourth-best offensive tackle in the country and number 57 prospect in the country. At one point, Wray was committed to the University of Georgia but eventually de-committed. Urban Meyer is once again demonstrating his recruiting prowess by nabbing a recruit from SEC country. Wray had offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, and Tennessee, among others.
Could he contribute next year?
Listed at 6’6.5″ and 289 pounds, Wray would provide the offensive line with a big and talented body. With left tacke Jamarco Jones and center Billy Price entering their last year of eligibility, it leaves two available starting positions on the line for next year. In this year’s recruiting class, the Buckeyes picked up the top two guards in Wyatt Davis and Josh Myers. Also, the Buckeyes recruited the number 28 offensive tackle in the country, Thayer Munford. With that being said, Wray is likely to redshirt but if he proves himself, could find time as a rotational lineman.
Ohio State’s spring game will be on the Big Ten Network at 12:30 p.m. EST. If you would like to read more about the rest of the 2018 recruiting class, you can check out this article.
