    Early scuttlebutt is that this recruitment will be much more favorable for the Buckeyes than his older brother’s was.

    Jeff Lomonico, the Tigers’ assistant head coach and defensive coordinator, told Styles’ older brother and Notre Dame 2021 receiver commit Lorenzo Styles Jr. to call Ohio State linebackers coach Al Washington so that Washington could talk to Sonny.

    “He was having a conversation with me and telling me how confident he is in me,” Styles said. “He knows what type of family I come from. He can see that, and he said he can see my athletic ability. He said he really wants to coach me.”

    And then, the offer from the Buckeyes came.

    “Honestly, it took me all day for it to really sink in,” Styles said. “It was pretty crazy. I was real surprised. I wasn’t expecting it that early. But I’m gonna keep going. I’m not gonna settle.”

    The fact that his second Division I scholarship offer came from Ohio State speaks volumes about Styles’ potential and what he brings to the table. Even after having played only one game as a high schooler, the Buckeyes wanted to get out in front of this in-state prospect’s recruitment as soon as possible before he turns national with all of the talent and physical traits he already possesses.

    “All of them really like how I could fill out and like my potential,” Styles said. “I’m really tall already, and there’s no telling how I fill out. And they like my versatility. I can play multiple positions, and, of course, the family I come from tells them something about me.”

    Just sayin': This recruit should be an automatic legacy; however, he does have a brother at Notre Dame.

    That drive for perfection is what will separate him on the field no matter what he’s doing. He just doesn’t know what he’ll be doing yet. No one really does.

    Is Sonny Styles a safety? Is he a linebacker? He could be either, he could be both. No matter where he plays, he’s going to be a problem for offensively-minded folks.

    “Whatever squad I go to,” Styles told Lettermen Row. “I just want to be able to impact the defense in different ways. A lot of different ways. I want to be able to make plays all over the field. I know I can do that in different spots on the field.”

    I think how Craig Young is utilized this year could go a long way in Sonny's recruitment

    With his brother at ND, I just wonder how much of an advantage (or disadvantage) ND really has in the recruitment of Sonny.

    They will be players, but let's be honest, his brother would've been a Buckeye if we really wanted him, but at DB.
    I think Sonny is ours to lose
