The Buckeyes are once again in the mix for the top offensive tackle in the nation.

Gunner Givens, a five-star offensive tackle from Daleville, Va., Lord Botetourt, included Ohio State among his top schools, along with Clemson, Virginia Tech, Georgia, LSU, Penn State, Auburn, Alabama, Florida State, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.

The Buckeyes locked up the No. 1 offensive tackle in the country in both the 2018 and 2020 classes in Nicholas Petit-Frere and Paris Johnson Jr., respectively. If head coach Ryan Day and offensive line coach Greg Studrawa can secure a commitment from Givens, Ohio State would have the top tackle from every other class from 2018-22.

The Scarlet and Gray already have one offensive lineman committed in the 2022 class in West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West four-star offensive tackle Tegra Tshabola, who is the No. 12 offensive tackle nationally.

In 2021, Ohio State holds commitments from Belaire (Texas) Episcopal five-star guard Donovan Jackson and Richfield (Ohio) Revere four-star guard Ben Christman., who are the No. 1 and No. 7 guards in the nation, respectively.
