Five-star Allen, Texas (Allen High School) wide receiver Theo Wease released his Top 7 on Monday and he included the Buckeyes in the cutdown.
He announced the news via Twitter.
As you can see, Ohio State is joined by LSU, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, TCU, UCLA, and USC.
Wease is ranked the No. 6 receiver in the 2019 class per the 247Sports Composite and the No. 28 player overall. He measured in at a Nike combine at 6-foot-3 and 189 pounds as a high school sophomore, so he is still growing into his frame.
As a junior, Wease caught 53 passes for 852 yards and 14 touchdowns. His highlights show a receiver who excels at 50/50 balls, yet isn’t too tall and lanky to make defenders miss. His route running abilities can screw defenders into the ground as well.
Ohio State is also involved with fellow Texas wideout Garrett Wilson, who is ranked the No. 17 receiver in the 2019 class. Wilson attends Lake Travis High School in Austin and was teammates with 2018 OSU quarterback signee Matthew Baldwin.
Lake Travis and Allen met in the state title game and the two found themselves matched up quite a bit. Here is one such clip.

The Buckeyes have offered five Texas receivers in the 2019 class so far, including 5-star prospects Arjei Henderson and Jordan Whittington. OSU has previously made the cut for Whittington. Ohio State signed a Texas wide receiver in the 2017 class in Kemp High School product Ellijah Gardiner, who redshirted this past season for the Buckeyes.
