Recruiting Outlook is a regular series on Buckeye Sports Bulletin designed to be your one-stop shop for all news related to the Ohio State football recruiting trail.

Ohio State added a third commitment in 2024 on Monday evening, earning a verbal pledge from Sunbury (Ohio) Big Walnut four-star linebacker/safety Garrett Stover (6-2, 195).

Stover – the cousin of current Ohio State tight end Cade Stover – is the No. 168 overall prospect and No. 17 athlete in the class. He held additional offers from Cincinnati, Duke, Iowa State, Kentucky, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Pittsburgh, among others.

Stover earned his offer after camping at Ohio State over the summer. A versatile player, he seems a prime fit for defensive coordinator Jim Knowles’ hybrid linebacker/safety position, comparable to the role safety Ronnie Hickman has played this season for the Buckeyes.

He is Ohio State’s third commitment in 2024, joining Chandler, Ariz., five-star quarterback Dylan Raiola (6-3, 220) and New Palestine, Ind., four-star offensive lineman Ian Moore (6-5, 295).

Glenn Decommits, Flips To Florida State

Memphis (Tenn.) Lausanne Collegiate School four-star quarterback Brock Glenn (6-2, 195) announced Monday that he was flipping to Florida State after being committed to Ohio State since July.

Glenn is the No. 378 overall prospect and No. 22 quarterback in the 2023 class. He took official visits to both Florida State and Ohio State over the summer shortly before his commitment to the Buckeyes, but told 247Sports that he kept an eye on the Seminoles despite being committed to Ohio State.

While Glenn’s commitment currently leaves the Buckeyes without a quarterback in 2023, there may some movement on that front as soon as this Saturday. Ohio State will host Pierre (S.D.) T.F. Riggs four-star quarterback Lincoln Kienholz (6-3, 185), who is currently committed to Washington, on an official visit this weekend.

Kienholz is the No. 404 overall prospect and No. 24 quarterback in the class, and he’s been committed to the Huskies since June. He threw for 3,422 yards this past season with 46 touchdowns while adding 1,436 yards and 24 touchdowns on the ground.
