Ohio State already interested in 2020 Tennessee OT Bryn Tucker

The Latest: Class of 2020 Bryn Tucker just played his freshman football season, but he’s already on the radar of some of college football’s top programs. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound prospect already holds offers from LSU and Tennessee and recently Ohio State has starting to up its contact with the rising sophomore. So will the Buckeyes be the next offer on his list? Rivals.com caught up with the young star to get the latest.

In His Words: “Ohio State is really hot on me. Coach Hodges (Ohio State assistant director of player personnel) and I have been talking a lot and building a bond. We talk about our families and stuff like that, not just football. I went to an Ohio State game this year and it was really impressive. The fans, the atmosphere, it was really amazing to see. I was there for the Indiana game. It was really cool. It took us about 8 hours to get there. But it wasn’t a bad drive. We’re used to making drives like that so it wasn’t that bad. We had a fun trip. Probably one of my favorite players of all-time is Orlando Pace and he played at Ohio State. I go on YouTube and watch his high lights. I watch him all the time. That’s who I look up to so to have a chance to play at the same school as him would be special.”

On other programs: “I’m still talking to Tennessee and LSU a lot. There’s a lot of other schools reaching out too, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Clemson and Kentucky.”

Rivals Reaction: Tucker figures to be one of the top players at his position by the time his class is ranked so it’s not a surprise that Buckeyes are showing interest. When it’s all said and done Tucker will have 20-plus offers so it seems like a matter of if, not when they will join his list. Time will tell if Ohio State can be a real factor in his recruitment.
