Zen Michalski Floyd Knobs 2021 Offensive Tackle

ZenMichalskiOhioState

Zen Michalski is the most recent commit for Ohio State’s 2021 football recruiting class. Currently ranked the 2nd best class in the country behind Alabama, OSU’s newest class of players features Michalski, Donovan Jackson and Ben Christman on the offensive line. Michalski is a 6’6” 288 lbs. offensive tackle out of Floyd Central in Floyds Knobs Indiana. A four star recruit, he is considered the 33rd best OT in the country and the 3rd best overall prospect in Indiana. He had 24 scholarship offers including ones from Bowling Green, Boston College, Ball State and Louisville.

Visits and the Recruitment of Zen Michalski

Michalski was recruited by Greg Studrawa for Ohio State but also spoke with Coach Day daily before deciding. The current pandemic made recruiting for Michalski a little bit of an adventure. He committed to Louisville in April. The only official visit for Michalski was to Indiana State, his first offer. Ohio State offered him a scholarship based solely on film that they obtained of his game performances. The film demonstrates that he has grown into the tackle position after being a small tight-end the year before.

The feeling is that he has great potential, good feet and a big frame. He knows that he might have to wait a year to get on the field but he is fine with taking time to develop into a top tier lineman.

Blake Miller Strongsville Ohio Offensive Tackle

BlakeMillerOhioState

Blake Miller needs no introduction, but he's a four-star offensive lineman for those who don't know him. Regarding the 2022 cycle, he's ranked at 23 when it comes to offensive tackles in the country and favored to play at Ohio State at the next level. Everything about Miller is a process, that's from his recruitment to the lineman’s progression. His father is a high school cross country runner, and he introduced Miller to the gym at an early age of 8 years old. Since then, the gym became a consistent hobby.

Blake Miller’s attributes

At Strongsville, at only 16 years old, Miller holds the title of being the team's strongest guy. Miller is big and powerful, and his main focus is blocking the space. He's not that fast or quick, but he's almost there. That's why if you keen on his game if he doesn't have the ball that quickly, he gets his hand on the defensive linemen or locks the linebackers in the open field.

Visits and scholarship

At the moment, Miller is high on the Buckeye's scholarship offer. He has already made three visits to colleges that's Michigan, Clemson and Penn State. The quickening pace of recruitment has caught him by surprise. Recently he had offers from Toledo, Indians, Iowa State, Bowing Green, and many others, but the offer from Ohio State will be a game-changer.

Miller has a scheduled visit with Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell. He also talks to him once to thrice a month. This means that he is serious about his football career, he wants to improve daily, and with the help of Coach Robbie Caldwell, the sky is not the limit.

As per his calendar, he intends to visit the other two colleges high on his offer list, that's LSU and Tennessee. He describes them as the "up-and-comer" that have offered him scholarships this year, and he's open with other scholarships.

Emeka Egbuka Checks All the Boxes for the Buckeyes

EmekaEgbuka

When it comes to top-tier wide receivers, Emeka Egbuka checks all the boxes—size, speed, versatility, and the ability to be a game-changer. All of the experts agree that this young man from Washington is a playmaker, and he certainly would look good in an Ohio State uniform.

Emeka Egbuka Offers

But the Buckeyes will have to battle to land Egbuka, who has become part of a fierce recruiting battle. Reports indicate that Egbuka has narrowed his list to a half-dozen or so Top Ten schools, and geography may come into play with as Egbuka comes closer to making his final choice.

Other offers have come from Miami and Georgia, but wherever he lands, academics likely won’t be a problem for Egbuka. He maintained a 4.0 GPA in high school, and Egbuka certainly comes from excellent intellectual and athletic stock. His father is a is a civil engineer played who nearly tried out for the Nigerian junior national soccer team, while his mother was a three-sport standout who turned down a chance to go to Columbia and now works in IT for Kaiser Permanente.

What Egbuka has to offer?

So who is Emeka Egbuka? Let’s start with the basics. At 6’1 190 pounds, the five-star receiver has the size and body control to compete in space for balls within his formidable catch radius, and Ekbuga’s 4.42 speed is excellent for his size. Moreover, Ekbuga has been a force on special teams, with three TDs to his credit as a returner on special teams. That only adds to his resume as a playmaker, and the icing on the cake is that Egbuka has been rated the number one athlete and the number eight recruit in the 2021 class by 247Sports.

The comparables also include Pittsburgh’s JuJu Smith-Schuster, so Egbuka is keeping some elite company of his own.

Egbuka Visits

Naturally, that resume has inspired plenty of admiration and interest from afar. The Steilacoom resident has been visited by Ryan Day and past University of Washington coach Chris Petersen, and his visits to date have included Clemson, Alabama and LSU, among others.

What Ohio State offers Egbuka

But the Buckeyes have plenty to offer as well. One reason some experts expect Egbuka, who is projected to go to Ohio State, to join the Buckeye’s is the recent strength of OSU’s wide receiver draft classes, which have included the likes of Michael Thomas and Terry McLaurin.

While it it true that the Buckeyes tend to stack their wide receiver group with top-flight prospects and rotate receivers in and out of the lineup, that draft record is definitely reason for optimism when it comes to his NFL future.

If he does choose Ohio State, Egbuka will be part of an elite wide receiver corps. The OSU wide receiver room will include Marvin Harrison, Jr as well as five-star prospects Julian Fleming and Jaxon Smith-Njigba. The Buckeyes recruiting class is considered the best in the country, but landing Egbuka would be an impressive addition.

The Pacific northwest may play a significant role in his choice as well. Washington State has already made an offer, and Washington is basing its hopes on the fact that Egbuka has already visited the school, not to mention that the Huskies roster will include QB Sam Huard, the son of former NFL signal caller Damon Huard.

Ohio State recruiting: Breaking down Emeka Egbuka top-four list

But a different local connection comes in the form of another Washington native, Gee Scott Jr., who will also be an incoming OSU freshman this fall. Egbuka has talked openly of Scott being a leader and a confidant, and that may sway him to consider the Buckeyes more seriously.

There’s no clear favorite right now, but regardless of where he goes, Egbuka’s future in both football and academics is a bright one. And the Buckeyes believe they have a serious shot to convince him to hope take his talents to Columbus this fall.

He had scholarship offers from Oklahoma, Louisville, Florida, Kentucky, Arizona State and 8 others.

What Tshabola Offers Ohio State

Tshabola is reported to already look like a college athlete in his build. He can quickly get off the line and stay low. His strength puts him over-the-top of everyone at his level. A great run blocker, he should improve at pass blocking during his two remaining years in high school.

Starting offensive linemen in 2022 for Ohio State look to include Petit-Frere, Dawand Jones and Paris Johnson (a friend of Tshabola).

Tegra Tshabola Visits

Tshabola attended the Tennessee Junior Day in March and was on hand for Ohio State’s victory over Penn State during the 2019 regular season. Ryan Day made a point of speaking to Tshabola prior to the start of the game which was not expected as the coaches were gearing up for the big game. That talk put Ohio State at the top of his list.
