Teague (5-11 210) is rated as a 3-star prospect and the No. 25 running back in the nation per the 247Sports Composite. He is rated as a 4-star prospect and the No. 8 running back overall per 247Sports themselves, however.
Teague rushed for 2,031 yards last season as a junior, earning First-Team All-State honors in the process.
Following a pair of impressive camp performances at both Alabama and Ohio State the last couple of weeks, you can expect those rankings to climb. He clocked in 4.31 40-yard dashes at both events.
It was at the latter camp where Teague earned the offer he had apparently been waiting for. Just two days after receiving an offer from Urban Meyer, he made his decision known.
Master Teague is now the third running back in the 2018 class for the Buckeyes. He joins Brian Snead and Jaelen Gill in a loaded backfield. Snead (Seffner, FL / Armwood High School) is rated the No. 4 running back in the nation per the composite, while Gill (Westerville, OH / Westerville South High School) is rated the No. 2 all-purpose back in the nation.
Gill is on his way to earning a fifth star following strong camp performances this spring, which should carry on into the summer as well. He eventually projects to an H-back, even though on Saturday he was named the Running Back MVP at the Rivals 5-Star Challenge in Indianapolis.
Will will have more on Master Teague and his commitment in the days to follow.
