DB Josh Proctor (Official Thread)

    Ohio State's 2018 recruiting class is now fully on campus and ready to make some noise.

    The Buckeyes 2018 recruiting class was another elite one pulled in by Urban Meyer. Featuring three five-stars and a whopping 13 top-100 ranked players, the class finished #2 in the 247sports composite rankings, trailing only Georgia.

    Of course, a class filled with that much talent is expected to have some players who can contribute immediately. Here, we will take a look at a few players who enrolled this week that can step on the field and make a difference from game one.


    While Jordan Fuller has one safety spot locked down, the other seems to be open. With the departure of Damon Webb, and no particular player has risen up to secure the starting job. Isaiah Pryor seems to be the frontrunner after earning some playing time himself as a freshman, but the opportunity is there for Proctor to seize the job right out of his hands.

    Proctor is a big-time athlete, evident by his long arms and impressive frame. Here he is making two great plays, one on offense and one on defense.

    Proctor, the #71 overall prospect from the 2018 class and the #7 overall safety, will compete with Pryor, Jahsen Wint, Amir Riep, Brendon White, and others for the final safety spot. In the event Proctor doesn't win the job outright, expect him to earn some rotational minutes at safety and heavy time on special teams.

    If for no other reason than to soften the blow of a Battle decommit.

    Proctor to me is a flat out beast. He’s a future star and potential first rounder if he plays his cards right. If there is an “it” factor that you can sometimes see in HS film he has it.

    Agreed, Proctor is pure, guard in space type of S. Problem is, he doesn't really soften the blow of a recruit who was to come in as a CB...

    Hope you are right. I'm excited to see how Johnson emerges as well. Will it be at Safety or CB, Nickel???

    Ohio State Football 2018 Freshman Report: SAF Josh Proctor


    Josh Proctor came to Ohio State from Owasso High School in Owasso, Oklahoma. He was ranked as the No. 7 safety in the nation and the No. 71 prospect in the 2018 class. Proctor signed with Ohio State over offers from Michigan, Georgia, Florida, Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska, and Texas-San Antonio. He was an Army All-American as well.

    2018 Season
    Josh Proctor was arguably the best athlete in Ohio State’s 2018 signing class. His athleticism and overall playmaking in high school had Urban Meyer very excited about his future. He made plays in fall camp, showing promising ball skills, and ended up playing in 11 games last season as a true freshman. Proctor made one tackle on the year. He missed games against TCU, Penn State, and Maryland.

    The vast majority of Proctor’s playing time came on special teams, which is normal for Buckeye freshmen who aren’t quarterbacks.

    Proctor made plays at times in practice throughout the season and showed the kind of athleticism that made him such a high-priority target in recruiting.

    Despite the struggles at safety early last season between Isaiah Pryor and Jahsen Wint, Proctor was never able to break into the top of the depth chart. Had Brendon White not worked out, however, perhaps Proctor would have gotten the call later in the season.

    This kid is too talented not to get any PT next year. I can see him getting in some rotation minutes during the season

    You can’t keep this kind of talent on the sidelines.

    I think I will go ahead and push all my chips in now. This dude is my pick for breakout performer of the year. He will play quality minutes this year and have a noticeable impact. Proctor is a stud.

    I agree. But my only question is, who sits for him to get the PT?

    If White plays the Viper role, which is a hybrid LB/S you’ll need someone alongside Fuller. I agree that it’ll be Proctor. I also believe he’s going to be special. As in, Malik Hooker special, before it’s all said and done.

    The best play. But they rotate some. My dream guys on the back end if everyone is playing to their potential?

    Well, White plays in a lot of packages I figure because he just played so well last for fun let’s just say on a certain look you have him as a Bullet LB. With that I’d love Wade, Okudah, Fuller, Proctor.

    Now think about those guys flying around all playing at their potential. That’s 5 dudes counting White as a S/LB and that could be damn good. If those 5 could all get on the same page? Lord have mercy.

    That would be a great option against spread teams that like to toss the ball around. That's a lot of athleticism on the field

    I think Proctor, Fuller and White offer enough so that the defensive staff is working overtime to figure out how to keep all three on the field most of the time.
