Ohio State Football Recruiting: Tyquan Lewis Commits To Buckeyes

Tyquan Lewis, a top defensive end recruit, committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes Thursday. Out of Tarboro (NC), Lewis also held offers from Auburn, Clemson, Duke, LSU and North Carolina.

Lewis stands 6'4 and weighs in at 227 pounds. Here's some analysis from Ohio State site Land Grant Holy Land:

In his sophomore year at his high school, Lewis filled out an impressive stat sheet that included 63 total tackles, coupled with 12 sacks for the season. Though coming into the 2012 season the Ohio State defensive line stole the headlines, they have not been overtly impressive to start out this year's campaign. Lewis has the chance to come in and contribute from the get-go.

Lewis is a key grab for head coach Urban Meyer and Mark Pantoni as they continue to build on their dominance of the recruiting landscape. Lewis has room to improve, but he has a strong burst of speed and continually chases down running backs in the backfield.

Here's a photo of Lewis from Nike's The Opening.
