The Buckeyes have their quarterback for the class of 2025 as Bellfontaine signal caller Tavien St. Clair has locked in his spot in the Ohio State recruiting class.
There has been a lot of debate as to who would be the guy for Ryan Day and Corey Dennis and St. Clair made his move after a productive offseason. He had been a fixture at Ohio State’s summer camping events and each and every time he showed up, he showed a consistent effort and had the eye of the Ohio State coaches.
The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder has more than two-dozen offers including one from the Buckeyes and would have surely had many more if he would have dragged his recruitment out longer.
He is the second member of the class of 2025, joining defensive back Jontae Gilbert in the class. He also will now become the de facto leader of the recruiting class, as quarterbacks often are in terms of recruiting.
He will have two years before he joins the Ohio State quarterback room but will be likely joined by Devin Brown, Lincoln Kienholz and Air Noland as Ohio State quarterbacks when he arrives on campus to start the 2025 season, Ohio State’s second season in the expanded 16-team Big Ten that will be divisionless as well as part of a 12-team post season playoff system.
The Buckeyes were faced with a difficult decision in-state between both St. Clair and Ryan Montgomery out of Findlay (Ohio). Ryan is the younger brother of freshman offensive lineman Luke Montgomery.
We will have more on this breaking news throughout the rest of the day, including what the Buckeyes are getting in their new signal caller and what this means for Ohio State’s recruiting effort in the class of 2025.
