Ferndale, Washington, four-star offensive guard Geirean Hatchett included Ohio State in his top five Wednesday afternoon alongside Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Stanford and Washington.

The 6-5, 275-pound Hatchett is considered the 10th-best offensive guard and No. 188 prospect overall in the Class of 2010. He has been to Columbus twice since offensive line coach Greg Studrawa extended a scholarship offer in February 2018, which includes a multi-day visit for the 62-39 win over Michigan last fall.

The Buckeyes already hold commitment from four linemen in Cincinnati St. Xavier five-star tackle Paris Johnson Jr., New Jersey four-star center Luke Wypler, Cincinnati Elder three-star tackle Jakob James and Norwalk (Ohio) three-star tackle Trey Leroux, but the staff hopes to add at least two more this cycle.

Players like Hatchett, Michigan five-star guard Justin Rogers, Arizona four-star tackle Tosh Baker, Colorado four-star guard Reece Atteberry, Georgia four-star tackle (and former commitment) Jake Wray, Kentucky four-star tackle John Young, Massachusetts four-star tackle Zak Zinter, Pennsylvania four-star Michael Carmondy are Texas four-star Akinola Ogunbiyi all seemingly jockeying for those two spots.

Hatchett hopes to make a decision before the start of his senior year, with 100 percent of 247Sports’ Crystal Ball predictions favoring the home-state Huskies.
