Early Signing Period: Four-Star Cornerback Bryce West Signs With Ohio State

By December 20, 2023 (7:17 am)Early Signing Period

Get to know Cleveland Glenville four-star cornerback Bryce West, who signed with Ohio State on Wednesday.

Height, Weight: 5-11, 177

247Sports Composite Rankings: West is rated as the nation’s 58th-best prospect, fourth-best cornerback and No. 2 overall player out of Ohio. 

Commitment Date: West committed to Ohio State on June 24, 2023. 

Other Offers: Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, USC. 

How He Did In High School: West did not allow a touchdown and intercepted four passes at cornerback as a junior, then was named Northeast Lakes All-District Defensive Player of the Year and invited to the 2024 Under Armor All-America Game as a senior. He also played track and field and topped out at 10.93 in the 100-meter dash and 6.96 in the 60-meter dash. 

Where He Fits For 2024: Like fellow cornerback signees Miles Lockhart and Aaron Scott, West will have a hard time getting on the field at cornerback in 2024 with veterans Davison Igbinosun and Jordan Hancock likely to return. He will also have to turn heads during spring and fall camp if he wants to jump rising sophomore cornerbacks Jermaine Mathews Jr. and Calvin Simpson-Hunt on the depth chart. 

But West’s blazing speed and athleticism may make him a strong candidate to see the field on special teams, where he can use those traits to his advantage on kick and punt return coverage. If he can excel in that aspect, the former Glenville star can put himself in prime position to receive more playing time as the season progresses.
