George Fitzpatrick (twitter), a 6’6″ 285 lbs. offensive tackle prospect from Englewood Colorado recently committed to the Ohio State 2022 recruiting class. He is rated a 4 star recruit, the 27th best offensive tackle in the nation, and the 2nd best player in the state of Colorado. He made June 2022 visits to Florida, Oregon, Michigan, Oklahoma, and Ohio State, while having over 29 scholarship offers. This was the second time he made it to Columbus Ohio after visiting on his own in February during the dead period. Colorado recruiter Tony Alford and line coach Greg Studrawa successfully recruited Fitzpatrick for the Buckeyes.
What George Fitzpatrick Offers Ohio State
Scouts like his athleticism, height and the prospect of increasing in size early in his college career. He shows great burst off the line and an ability to get to the line backers in run situations. He has limited reps at pass protection but some feel his agility demonstrates the capacity. Playing right tackle in high school at Cherry Creek, he displayed an ability to finish blocks. His team got to the State Championships the past two years going undefeated.
Ohio State 2022 Class
Ohio State was able to secure the pledges of three recruits this past week as June college visits heated up. 17 recruits are now a part of the best class in the country at OSU for 2022. The only other offensive lineman in the group is Tegra Tshabola from Lakota West. There could be a couple additional at the position with Kam Dewberry and Aamil Wagner both showing strong interest.
