Texas Four-Star Payton Pierce Signs With Ohio State

National Signing Day is here and that means fax machines are busy (okay, things have been updated a little bit) as letters of intent are sent from top players to their schools.

Payton Pierce will need the long distance code at his Texas high school as he sent his paperwork to Columbus to be an official part of the class.

The 6-foot-1, 225-pound four-star picked the Buckeyes over a slew of other offers and once he made his commitment in April of 2023, that was that as there was no drama to speak of.

With 40-plus offers along the way, he could have really gone anywhere but his relationship with James Laurinaitis made a huge difference as the Buckeyes looked to land the future Mike backer.

What is Ohio State getting here with Pierce? We talk about that in our signing day capsule of the newest member of the Ohio State recruiting class.
