Atlanta (Ga.) Douglass cornerback Jontae Gilbert (6-1, 175) committed to Ohio State on Friday evening, becoming the first member of the Buckeyes’ 2025 recruiting class.

Gilbert was first offered a scholarship by Ohio State in May and he made an unofficial visit in June. The Buckeyes are one of just seven schools who offered Gilbert, including Arkansas, Buffalo, Florida A&M, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh and UAB.

Gilbert is only entering his sophomore year at Douglass High School so he does not hold a composite rating yet, but he possesses solid measurables with three years of high school football remaining.

He has also already been invited to the 2025 Under Armour All-America Game. Several members of Ohio State’s 2022 recruiting class participated in the most recent game, including linebacker C.J. Hicks and defensive ends Omari Abor and Kenyatta Jackson Jr.

Ohio State is working on a strong finish for the 2023 class and already has a head start in 2024, securing a commitment from Chandler, Ariz., five-star quarterback Dylan Raiola (6-3, 220) in May. Including Gilbert, Ohio State has issued 25 offers in the 2025 class to date.
