By December 20, 2023 (7:33 am)Early Signing Period

Get to know Fairburn, Ga., five-star quarterback Air Noland, who signed with the Buckeyes on Wednesday.

Height, Weight: 6-2, 195

247Sports Composite Ranking: He is rated as the No. 36 overall prospect, fourth-ranked quarterback and sixth-ranked recruit out of Georgia.

Commitment Date: Noland committed to Ohio State on April 8.

Other Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Coastal Carolina, Colorado, Duke, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Louisville, Ole Miss, Oregon, Utah.

How He Did In High School: Noland threw for over 10,000 yards in high school, including a junior year where he led his team to a 15-0 record and a state championship with 4,095 yards on 236 of 323 passing (73.1 completion percentage), 55 touchdowns and four interceptions. In his senior season, Noland was 149 of 224 passing (66.5 percent) with 2,140 yards, 22 touchdowns and nine interceptions, four of which were in his final game.

Where He Fits For 2024: Ohio State’s quarterback position is up for grabs in 2024 now that Kyle McCord has transferred to Syracuse. Right now, Devin Brown is the presumed starter since he is getting the nod in the Cotton Bowl on Dec. 29, but Lincoln Kienholz or Air Noland could make a push of their own for the job.

It’s also possible that Ryan Day will find a new quarterback by means of the transfer portal, but as the roster stands Noland has a chance of playing his way onto the field next year, even if it could be as a backup.
