BOOM 2024 CB Bryce West out of Cleveland, Ohio has committed to Ohio State.
Fans have been waiting for a while for the old Glenville pipeline to start yielding some major recruits, and the tap is now fully back on. West, who is the #1 player in the state of Ohio according to 247sports Composite rankings, has given his pledge to the Buckeyes over arch-rival Michigan.
The best comparison I have as far as former Ohio State corners goes for West would be Marshon Lattimore. A solid frame around 6 feet and extreme quick burst ability makes West one of the most coveted defenders in the country. His quick twitch and ability to flip his hips make him a blanket corner, who could fight for early playing time as a freshman.
The best in Ohio, go to Ohio State. They always have. Bryce West continuing that legacy after being heavily courted by Michigan is a huge win for Ryan Day and his staff. As long as the state remains sacred, the Buckeyes will always be a contender. Instead of a Gold M, West will be wearing a few pairs of Gold Pants.
