COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State already has verbal commitments from five-star defensive tackle Taron Vincent of Bradenton (Fla.) IMG and five-star defensive end Brenton Cox of Stockbridge, Ga.
How about another top 10 defensive lineman?
Four-star defensive tackle Greg Emerson of Jackson (Tenn.) North Side included Ohio State in the top six he released Thursday along with Oregon, Tennessee, Alabama, Clemson and Mississippi.
Rated the No. 6 defensive tackle in the 2018 recruiting class in the 247Sports composite rankings, Emerson visited Columbus for the Friday Night Lights camp last summer. He spent some time with Urban Meyer that likely went a long way in securing Ohio State’s spot on his list.
According to the Jackson Sun, Emerson plans to announce and sign during the recently-approved early signing period in December.
