Thank you to everyone who had an interest in me ... I can't even say how thankful I am but Ohio State is just the place for me #gobucks— Joey Bosa (@jbbigbear) April 23, 2012
God bless everyone involved in my recruiting process— Joey Bosa (@jbbigbear) April 23, 2012
Bosa stands 6'6 and weighs in at 260 pounds. He has an excellent short-area quickness and is much too powerful for the vast majority of high school offensive linemen he faces. Bosa has excellent hands and is quite advanced for a high school player. He is able to attack the half-man and get the opposing blocker off balance. His awareness is good, and he does not get caught over-pursuing.
Bosa will likely play the five or six-technique end for Ohio State. He is the 12th commitment of the 2013 class for Urban Meyer's Buckeyes. Ohio State's class is currently the second best in the Big Ten, trailing only Michigan.
