Top 100 offensive lineman Ian Moore has committed to Ohio State.
He announced his verbal pledge Thursday morning via social media.
“First of all I just wanted to say thank you to all of the coaches that have taken the time out of their schedules to recruit me and build a relationship with me,” he wrote.
“With that said I’d like to announce that I have committed to THE Ohio State University.
“I want to thank all of the communities that have backed me up through my life. Whether that be the Flora community where I started my football journey or the very supportive New Pal community.
“I’d also like to thank my high school coaches and my teammates. Only a year and a half ago I was a new face in New Pal and they welcomed me with open arms.
“I want to thank my parents and family for being with me through this journey and having my back every step of the way. I love you guys and you’re the ones that made all of my dreams possible.
“Lastly I’d like to thank the OSU coaching staff for blessing me with this opportunity. Y’all have made me feel like I have a second family. Can’t wait for the next chapter of my life with y’all.
