    He's rated lower than 7 other CBs that have some sort of connection to OSU, but his offer list is pretty strong. LSU guy said when Bucks offer they will be hard to beat. What's the saying down there? "let the good times roll !" (english version)

    -Brown discusses his offer with Birm.

    He pretty much says he’s committed

    ScriptOhio Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.


    Whether it's Donovan Jackson (whose parents are both from Ohio), JC Latham (who played ball in Wisconsin and has family in Akron) or Tunmise Adeleye (who had a dream of being a Buckeye since sixth grade), Ohio State often finds national prospects who have ties to the program – be it family connections, Midwest connections or nostalgic connections.

    That's the case once again in the 2022 class, as Kerry Coombs and the Buckeyes have started to form a connection with New Orleans four-star cornerback Jyaire Brown, the 16th-ranked corner in the country who Coombs offered during a phone call on Friday night.

    “Coach Coombs offered me, and man it was unreal,” Brown told Eleven Warriors. “The feeling is unexplainable.”

    Just like Coombs, Brown is a native of Cincinnati who was born in the Queen City. Brown lived there until he was 4 years old, after which he moved away to Louisiana, where he has become the state's sixth-ranked sophomore at Warren Easton High School.

    One of his coaches at Warren Easton, offensive coordinator Munchie LeGaux, is familiar with Coombs. A former Cincinnati quarterback, LeGaux's freshman year was Coombs' final season as a Bearcats assistant in 2011.

    Brown was connected to Coombs through LeGaux, and Coombs was able to use the Cincinnati connection to start forming a relationship with Brown. The two also share a connection in that Coombs once attempted to get Brown's cousin, Michael Jackson, to join the Bearcats as a preferred walk-on.

    Brown says Friday was the first conversation he had with a coach from Ohio State, and it was apparently a very good one. So good, in fact, that he can already see himself playing for the Buckeyes.

    “This offer means everything to me and my family – bigger than every (other scholarship offer),” Brown said. “This is my home and can’t wait to play under Coach Coombs.”

    Now, it would be easy to read that and believe it's a done deal for Brown to join Ohio State, especially when adding the cherry on top that three Crystal Ball predictions were then dropped for Brown to the Buckeyes.

    But it's just as probable that it was a case of a budding sophomore defensive back star being very excited about having a great conversation with one of the best defensive back developers in the nation – one who has a gaudy track record of developing guys who get selected in the first round of the NFL Draft and who has a strong connection with Brown already.

    Just keep in mind that it is incredibly early in the process, and Brown is coming off an incredibly hot stretch of offers. There is a lot ahead of him in his recruiting process, and it's wise to assume that he will continue putting serious weight into the options that have quickly come onto his plate.

    From March 31 to April 17, Brown was also offered by Texas, Michigan State, Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU, Texas A&M, Florida State, Alabama.

    “The LSU offer had me excited as well,” Brown said. “The feeling has been surreal. But it’s been all blessings, and I’m thankful.”

    There are plenty of traits for those programs to like about Brown, who is a candidate to emerge as one of the best cornerback talents in America's 2022 class.

    “I am physical, I can come down and disrupt a WR route easy,” Brown said. “I am long, I use my length to my advantage. And I have textbook feet, so I am able to move with the best of them.

    “(To keep improving), I need to keep going hard, even with these hard times, trying to perfect my craft to be the best me.”

    According to research by Eleven Warriors' Matt Gutridge, the only two players to suit up for the Buckeyes from Louisiana were Nader Abdallah (2004-08) and Jonathan Wells (1998-01).

    Pretty wild!

    While he has the big Ohio connections, he’s lived in Louisiana since he was 4.

    So this still definitely amounts to going into the HEART of BAMA/LSU country and pulling an elite recruit.

    Exciting to also know that Tegra, CJ, and Gabe are likely not that far behind.
