    Not that it matters, since the coaches obviously love what they see and that's alway good enough for me but ...

    Anyone know why there's a large gap between his rating on 247 vs Rivals? He's the 3rd best TE in the country on 247 while he's not even ranked by state or position on Rivals.

    Does that mean Rivals hasn't evaluated him ... or?

    The real question is why isn’t he even rated on scout?:lol:

    IMO 247 is by far the best... the others should just quit.

    Agreed. Just found it confusing that Rivals wouldn't even have a state or position ranking on him, as if they haven't even evaluated him or something.

    Welcome to the fam Joe. Here's to hoping that our offense can use the TE more, and he can excel in this offense

    Excellent commitment! Royer is most definitely our guy in this class at TE imo, huge get and 247's ranking is much closer than Rivals. Huge talent that we should be thrilled to have on board.

    Three-star Cincinnati tight end Joe Royer announced his commitment to Ohio State via Twitter on Tuesday.

    Royer chose Ohio State over offers from a variety of schools, including Arizona State, Michigan State, Georgia Tech, Michigan and others. His recruitment took off during the late spring, as he earned offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State and Georgia Tech in the month of May.

    • CLASS: 2020
    • SIZE: 6-foot-5, 225 lbs.
    • POS: TE
    • SCHOOL: Elder, Cincinnati, Ohio
    The Elder High School athlete is teammates with current Ohio State offensive tackle Jakob James, and he visited with James during Ohio State's spring practices in March. He also participated in Ohio State's first one-day camp June 6, where he secured an offer from the Buckeyes.

    After his offer from Ohio State and his performance at the camp, Royer jumped 388 spots to be ranked No. 507 overall in 247Sports composite rankings. 247Sports rated him as the No. 200 prospect in the class and the No. 3 tight end after the camp.

    He took an official visit to Ohio State on June 21, the same day as two other top tight end targets, Cam Large and Jalin Conyers, and expectedly chose to commit to the Buckeyes a little over a week later.


    Royer has shown, through his tape and his camp performance, an ability to work on the outside as a receiver and on the inside as an effective enough blocker. He brings sneaky size to the position with a solid frame that could translate to the Big Ten level. He caught Ohio State offensive coordinator and tight ends coach Kevin Wilson's attention with his shiftiness, and he recorded a 4.81 40-yard dash time.

    Royer is the 16th commitment to Ohio State's class of 2020 and the first tight end. He will likely need to redshirt to further prepare his body for Big Ten competition but has many of the intangibles needed for the position.

    Committed to: Ohio State
    247Sports Composite: 3-star | 0.8802 | No. 454 Overall | No. 12 TE
    Recruiting summary: A 6-foot-5, 225-pound tight end out of Elder High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, Royer committed to the Buckeyes over offers from Arizona State, Penn State and Michigan, among others. He holds 21 reported offers overall. His primary recruiter at Ohio State was offensive coordinator and tight ends coach Kevin Wilson, while linebackers coach Al Washington also assisted in his recruitment. He is the 16th commitment for the Buckeyes in the 2020 recruiting cycle.
    247Sports Evaluation: Has a lean, muscular build with no bad weight. Good stature and should be able to add a fair bit of mass once he enters a college level strength and conditioning program. Is an above average athlete for the position, running in the 4.8 range at college camps. Productive and a standout player in a highly competitive high school league in the Cincinnati area. Has a talented skill set as a pass catcher. Flexes out into the slot and does an excellent job at creating separation and finding holes in the defense. Is a very nuanced route runner with the ability to change speeds in and out of his breaks. Able to decelerate on comeback routes. Comes down with contested in-air jumpballs at a high rate. Can contort his body and adjust to the ball in mid-air or scoop the ball off the ground, giving him a wide catch radius. Shows some upside as a blocker with a solid base and good footwork, but will need to keep progressing in that area. Projects as a multi-year contributor and likely starter with the upside of developing into an early round NFL Draft pick. – 247Sports National Recruiting Analyst Charles Power
    NFL Draft projection: 2-3 Round (Day 2)
