Notable
Kierre Hawkins was the first of Ohio State's three tight ends in this recruiting class to commit, doing so in October of 2014 ... he is a consensus 4-star prospect (Rivals, 247Sports, Scout and ESPN) who has experience at running back, wildcat quarterback, receiver, and on defense for coach Devlin Culliver's Maple Heights teams ... he is rated as high as the No. 11 tight end prospect in this class by both 247Sports and Rivals and ESPN ranks him as a Top 30 athlete ... he is the No. 3 tight end in the Midwest according to Scout and the No. 12 player in the Ohio senior class, according to 247Sports ... was also named all-Midwest Region by Prepstar ... Hawkins received third-team Associated Press Division I all-state honors as a senior when he helped his team to a 7-3 overall mark ... this coming after he helped his school to the state playoffs as a junior in 2014 when he scored 14 touchdowns and rushed for 803 yards ...

Scouting Report
Plays receiver, tight end, tailback and defensive line for his high school team. A big receiver who can handle the ball in traffic. Able to take simple plays and turn them into bigger plays. Should flourish once he is allowed to focus on one position.

Immediate Projection
With only one tight end with experience on the roster, the Buckeyes will be looking for at least two more to contribute. Unfortunately for Hawkins, they will probably be looking for a blocking tight end or two. Hawkins is more of a flex tight end at the moment, but can grow into an all-around tight end, similar to Marcus Baugh. A redshirt year is likely for Hawkins as he learns the finer points of blocking.
