West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West linebacker Jackson Kuwatch announced on Thursday evening he has accepted a preferred walk-on opportunity from Ohio State.
The 6-5, 220-pound Kuwatch was named first-team all-state after he recorded 53 tackles and two sacks to lead the Firebirds to the Division I regional finals last fall. He’s not ranked by any recruiting sites, but holds scholarship offers from Eastern Illinois, Findlay, Lake Erie College and Tiffin.
Kuwatch is the fifth player from the class of 2021 to accept a preferred walk-on offer from Ohio State, joining Nashville Montgomery Bell Academy tight end Zak Herbstreit; Lewis Center (Ohio) Olentangy center Toby Wilson; Northville, Mich., running back/defensive back Cayden Saunders; and Tampa (Fla.) Carrollwood Day long snapper Mason Arnold.
