    Finding the right fit for your college football program isn't just about what happens on the field, but off it as well. Today, Ohio State added a key piece. How will that commitment impact the Buckeyes?

    Ohio State landed a commitment from one of the top-rated players in the state when Mentor four-star defensive end Noah Potter pledged his services to the Buckeyes on Monday evening following an unofficial visit for the annual Spring Game.

    Let's take a closer look at what Potter – the No. 240 prospect overall in the Class of 2019 – brings to Columbus.

    The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Potter wears No. 97 in high school because he wants to emulate Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa and his younger brother, current Ohio State defensive end Nick. He looks every bit the part, too.

    “He fits all of the physical traits, moves well and plays the game hard,” Mentor head coach Steve Trivisonno told Eleven Warriors. “He’s got a motor to him and does a lot of things well.”

    Potter finished his junior year with 68 tackles, 32 quarterback hurries, 10 sacks, eight tackles for a loss, one pass breakup and one forced fumble to lead the Cardinals to the state championship game last fall. He was named second-team all-Ohio as a result.

    “He’s been hard to block one-on-one. He’s been able to control his side for us and force teams to try to run away from him,” Trivisonno said. “He’s been pretty dominant, especially for a kid who’s only been playing football since his eighth-grade year. He’s developing into a great player.”

    Mentor has several offensive linemen with offers from programs all over the country, including Ohio State three-star offensive tackle commit Ryan Jacoby and uncommitted three-star offensive guard Nick Samac. It’s helped Potter’s game mature considerably over the last year.

    “One nice thing he gets is competition every day that a number of guys don’t necessarily get to see that every day,” Trivisonno said. “That helps him develop and get where he needs to be.”

    With that said, Potter must continue to work on his technique and get stronger if he wants to overpower elite offensive tackles. That shouldn’t be an issue, though, once he gets into the Buckeyes’ strength and conditioning program.

    “That comes with time,” Trivisonno said. “You look at Noah, and he’s still a young-looking kid. You don’t look at him and say, ‘Well, there’s a grown man.’ His better days are still coming. He’s going to get better and better as he gets bigger and stronger and better knowledge of [the game].”

    Awesome! Figured he would wind up in this class, but glad to have him on board early on. Really think Noah could be fantastic here, huge ceiling and a lot to work with. Welcome aboard Noah, glad to have both Potters in Columbus.
