The Class of 2016 for Ohio State just got a bit classier. Four-star wide receiver recruit (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) Binjimen Victor has committed to the Buckeyes. The 6’4″, 177 lb Victor was recruited by Receivers coach Zack Smith.

Ari Wasserman of cleveland,com has the rundown on this young man.

…four-star wide receiver Binjimen Victor of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Coconut Creek announced his commitment to the Buckeyes over Tennessee and West Virginia.

Rated the No. 12 wide receiver in the 2016 recruiting class in the 247Sports composite rankings, the 6-foot-4, 177-pound Victor has been Ohio State’s top wide receiver target for months, so it was a huge get for Urban Meyer.

I’d agree with Ari’s assessment. OSU’s wide receiver ranks have thinned out a bit since the end of the season, but that’s to be expected. Top level players should be expected to cast their lot at the “next level”, which opens up opportunities for underclassmen and new recruits to develop/show their skills.

At his height/weight, Binjimen will have to put on a few pounds, but a look at his offer list (per 247sports.com) indicates that quite a few teams (he held 43 0ffers!) saw something in the lanky wide-out. Looking at his highlights (per hudl.com) you can see why he held so many offers.

He has the long loping strides that lulls a defender to sleep as he cruises past you at 4.60 speed. The trait that impressed me while watching this video is Binjimen’s “soft hands”. Take a look at his receptions; nothing is ‘cradled’, nothing is ‘trapped'; every pass is ‘caressed’ into his body by his soft hands.
