2024 cornerback ‘thrilled’ to add Ohio State’s offer to growing purse roster
It’s been another great week on the recruiting trail for Ryan Day and the Ohio State football coaching staff. Looking for top-tier talent to bring into the fold, the Buckeyes once again doled out plenty of scholarship offers to some of the most sought-after high school prospects.
One of the many rookies who earned their chance to shake up the Scarlet and Gray last week was the Class of 2024 cornerback Braydon Lee.
“Coach Johnson and I have built a great relationship over the past few weeks and today (Wednesday) was finally the day. He told me that Coach Day really loves me and that I have enormous potential and that they would like to offer me,” Lee, a four-star classmate of the 2023 defensive end and another Ohio State goal. Desmond Umeozulu at Charles Herbert Flowers High in Springdale, Maryland, said Land-Grant Holy Land shortly after adding the possibility of joining the Buckeyes to his growing list of college offers.
Already bringing in scholarships not only from Ohio State, but also from programs such as Boston College, Maryland, South Carolina, Texas A&MA West Virginia and Big 10 Conference foe Wisconsin, Lee may be starting to become a hot commodity on the recruiting scene, but isn’t taking his recent chance to call Columbus home lightly.
“Honestly, it opens the door to so many opportunities. OSU has always been one of my dream schools. Everything about this program is so special and meaningful,” the 6-foot-1, 165-pound future junior said. .
“I had no idea (the offer) was coming honestly. Me and Coach Johnson have built a good relationship. I was definitely surprised but at the same time very excited.
Beginning to welcome many recruits from their big board, Lee will make the drive from Maryland to the Ohio State University campus on March 5 to mingle with Day and the coaching staff. While some high school hopefuls might get caught up in athletics, Lee is looking for a program that can help him succeed not just on the football field, but off it as well.
“I want to go to a school with great academics so my life after football is defined, and then I want a school surrounded by a great, loving community that supports their programs. I would also like to go to a place that feels like a second home to me.
