Noah Potter, a 6-5 and 247 pound defensive end out of Mentor High School, is the brother of Ohio State basketball forward Micah Potter. Potter is a 4-star prospect and highly coveted player for numerous top schools. He is the 8th ranked player in the state of Ohio and will be a senior this fall. If he accepts his offer to Ohio State, he will be the second Buckeye of the four kids in the Potter family.
Father of the boys, Tim Potter, does not have any substantial athletic background. He is a pastor in the boys’ hometown of Mentor, Ohio. Mother, Ronda, also does not have a substantial athletic background which makes it impressive that all three of their kids are Division I athletes. Caleb, the oldest of the bunch, is currently a junior at Southern New Hampshire University and is playing baseball there. Originally, Caleb signed to play with West Virginia, but when things didn’t work out he transferred to Southern New Hampshire. Micah, a well-known player on the Ohio State basketball team, is sophomore and has had a difficult season due to injuries early on. Youngest of the group, Emma, plays soccer at Mentor high school and is a sophomore.
Noah currently has 21 offers according to 247 sports. Some of his notable offers besides Ohio State include Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Notre Dame, Indiana, Tennessee, and Georgia. Potter may have more offers coming his way with his senior season looming.
Potter is a part of a talented group of defensive ends in the state of Ohio. Potter played 13 games last season. He had 41 solo tackles to go along with 10 sacks and one forced fumble. He made a huge improvement from his sophomore season when he recorded just 18 solo tackles and one sack. 247 sports says that there is a 100% chance that Potter will end up playing his college football in Columbus.
I think that Potter will choose Ohio State. It is close to home and he will have the opportunity to go to the same university as his older brother. Ohio State also has a need at defensive end going into that season with the likely departures of both Nick Bosa and Dre’mont Jones. Ohio State will be looking to get the best out of the state of Ohio again in 2019 and it starts with Noah Potter.
