Ohio State got the tight-end they greatly needed for 2023 when in the middle of August Ty Lockwood from Independence High School in Thompson’s Station TN gave a verbal commitment to the program. The four star recruit made the announcement shortly before starting his junior season.
Recruit Ty Lockwood
Lockwood, a 6-foot-5, 225-pound tight end/wide receiver, is rated as the No. 3 overall prospect in the state of Tennessee for the class of 2023 and the No. 8 tight end nationally. Playing for Independence High School in Thompson’s Station, Tennessee, Lockwood registered 43 receptions for 606 yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore a year ago.
Ohio State 2023 Recruiting Class
Bennett Christian, a 6-foot-6, 235 pounds, a top-rated tight end for the prior cycle is committed to Ohio State but they were looking for two at the position for the class. He picked up an offer from the Buckeyes during his official visit for one of their satellite camps back in June 2017. It’s becoming increasingly likely he’s the only tight end Ohio State will take 2022.
