    Ohio State’s lone tight end for the class of 2020 is now on campus as Joe Royer, another three-star prospect from Cincinnati, also arrived at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on Monday.

    In his first year on campus, Royer’s primary goal will likely be to get stronger and develop as a blocker. He has intriguing upside at 6-foot-5 with good athleticism and receiving ability, but he isn’t likely to see much playing time as a true freshman with a trio of upperclassmen – Luke Farrell, Jeremy Ruckert and Jake Hausmann – leading the depth chart.

    Maybe Joe Royer can help change the equation for Ohio State tight ends.

    It’s probably a safer bet that he won’t when it comes to piling up catches or altering the philosophy of the offense, even though it’s clear he’s got the physical tools and natural ability to do it.

    But like the other tight ends who have signed with the Buckeyes before him, Royer didn’t commit to the program because he was chasing individual numbers. There is a bigger picture that keeps drawing players of his caliber at that position to Ohio State — and it doesn’t hurt that relatively modest statistics isn’t slowing down the NFL pipeline at tight end any.

    “The more I thought about it, I realized it was the best opportunity for me as a player and a person with academics and those things,” Royer told Lettermen Row when he committed. “I loved everything about it, from the coaches, players, the tradition and everything that goes into being a Buckeye. The decision was a little tougher than I thought, but I believe this is home for me.

    “It’s a childhood dream, playing football for Ohio State.”

    Doubt he changes the depiction of OSU's use of TEs. But I could see Wilson/Day turning Royer into a more complete TE(which at this point is all we can expect from our TEs). If you look at his HS film and stats, he has great hands and can catch in traffic and move the chains. But has little opportunities to block often, let alone block college ready defensive players

    Closest comparison imo is Stoneburner. Which is cool because I think Stoneburner would've been great, if not prolific, in a Day offense.

    Yeah, he would've been as prolific as a TE could be at OSU :lol:
