Ohio State gets verbal commitment from elite WR prospect for second day in a row

Ohio State recruiting momentum continued building Tuesday with another verbal commitment from an elite receiver prospect.

Brandon Inniss, a five-star prospect from American Heritage High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., announced Tuesday he will be a Buckeye.

In a message posted on social media, Inniss thanked God, his parents, siblings, coaches, teammates and trainers for helping him develop into a highly regarded football player before revealing his choice.

“With that being said, for the next three to four years, I will be taking my academic and athletic abilities to The Ohio State University,” Inniss wrote.

The 6-foot, 190-pounder is the No. 18 prospect in the national 247Sports Composite rankings and the No. 2 receiver for 2023.

He joins an Ohio State class ranked No. 2 in the nation behind Notre Dame.

Coach Ryan Day’s group consists of 12 players, including Carnell Tate of Florida’s IMG Academy.

Tate, the No. 28 prospect in the country, was Ohio State’s top-rated verbal when he committed Monday, but that lasted only about 24 hours.

Inniss and Tate give Ohio State six players from Florida high schools in this class, double the total number of signees for the Buckeyes from the Sunshine State in the previous three recruiting classes.

Three of the commitments are receivers, and all of them are from Florida — including Bryson Rodgers, a four-star prospect from Zephyrhills who committed in April.

The class also has five Ohioans and one player from Tennessee.

The 6-2, 185-pound Tate was among the players at Ohio State’s last recruiting camp day of the summer Tuesday and caught passes for some of the quarterbacks, including 2024 OSU verbal commit Dylan Raiola.
