DE Noah Potter (Official Thread)

    Re: Larry Johnson factored heavily in the Buckeyes landing Potter, a four-star defensive end who is ranked as the No. 330 overall player in his class and the ninth-best prospect in the state of Ohio.
    “As soon as (Johnson) promised me he’d be there until I leave, I was sold,” Potter told Eleven Warriors when he committed in April. "[That's] huge because our relationship is so good."

    As a side note it is good to know Larry Johnson plans on sticking around a few more years too.

    I'm really happy about Potter, who should be a fine player for us. But I'm overjoyed about what Coach Johnson told him.

    Had I not known, I would have sworn this was highlights of one of the Bosa brothers!

    My first time watching him. Wasn’t that excited (admittedly due to his ranking) but I am now!

    I said it at the beginning of the year and I feel that way even more now: A DE class of Harrison, Stover and Potter by staying in Ohio would be a huge win and amazing class at the position. Glad it came to fruition and Noah is a huge part of the reason I felt that way. I think he is severely underrated and could end up being the best DE of the bunch...and I think he is more game ready. Very excited to have Mr. Potter in this class.

    Does Mr. Bosa know Ms. Potter?

    Hopefully he gets 97 here and confuses some people.

    Dang, he gets to the QB or ball carrier in a hurry with lots of anger. Looked like several could easily have been late hits. Great leverage and techniques!

    Noah Potter grew up an Ohio State fan surrounded by a family full of fanatics.

    He remembers exactly where he was sitting for what he now calls the “worst day of my life.” Potter, relaxing in his living room on Dec. 7, 2013, already had his Christmas tree up. He wanted a two-week-early present: a chance for the Buckeyes to play for the national championship.

    The next three-and-a-half hours, Potter watched with despair as Mark Dantonio and Michigan State pulled off a 34-24 upset in the Big Ten title game, handing Ohio State its first loss of the season. He still recalls the “awful” feeling he had when Braxton Miller couldn’t convert a read option on 4th-and-2 midway through the fourth quarter.

    “I was so sad because I knew we were going to make the national championship if we won it, but we lost,” Potter told Eleven Warriors. “So, that was really sad.”

    Like many teenagers who grew up in northeast Ohio, Potter adores the in-state power that he grew up rooting for. He always wanted to suit up in scarlet and gray and run out of the corner tunnel at Ohio Stadium in front of more than 100,000 fans. On Oct. 28, 2017, Potter finally got the opportunity, receiving an offer from Ohio State.

    Six months later he announced his commitment, posting a graphic of himself flexing while wearing a No. 97 jersey. Above him in the visual were Cameron Heyward, Joey Bosa and Nick Bosa. Both in the caption and in lettering on the graphic, Potter wrote that he was committed to Ohio State.

    Truly, though, he committed to Larry Johnson.

    “I would go where Larry Johnson was,” Potter said. “I'll just keep it as simple as that.”

    You can clearly tell how much he improved during his Junior year to his Senior year. A bit quicker off the ball, better hand movement, faster in pursuit, splitting through the OL, all with the same tenacity and toughness.

    He must not have hit many camps because i've always thought he was the best DE in the state, and Cade was the best overall player as the gatorade POY reflects, these are the two players that are closest to seeing the field as freshmen... Cade on SPT and Potter may crack d-line rotation both just need to add strength.

    OH2NC Farm me out. It's worth it.

    Extremely under rated. Had not watched his film until last night but was very impressed (even while being impaired) so I thought I'd take another look today. WOW. Kid is gonna be a stud. Plant his tree now. I'll help dig.

    Great thing his bull rush might be his weakest move. Strength will change that, but the hands are already really good and his swim is exceptional. Add a spin and some lower level get off, and it will be worthy of Bosa language imo.
