Ohio State offered 2019 quarterback Sam Howell on Friday. Howell (Sun Valley HS/Monroe, NC) is the sixth quarterback the Buckeyes have offered in the 2019 class.
Howell (6-1 217) added an offer from Clemson just over a week ago. He also holds offers from Arkansas, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and others.
The No. 4 pro-style quarterback in the nation per the 247Sports Composite, Howell can also run a bit. He threw for over 3,000 yards this season and rushed for over 1,500 yards. He compiled 60 total touchdowns.
Howell has a strong arm and can stay alive in and out of the pocket. He throws on the move very well and with velocity, and is reminiscent of Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield.
The Buckeyes do not yet have a quarterback committed in the 2019 class. In fact, they only have one commit, and that is 4-star West Virginia offensive lineman Doug Nester.
While OSU has handed out five other offers to 2019 quarterbacks, only three of those players are currently uncommitted. Oregon’s Michael Johnson Jr. is the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in the nation and has held an offer since he visited Ohio State last spring. Texas prospect Grant Tisdale is the No. 6 dual-threat quarterback in the class. He will be utilizing the newly-allowed official visits in the spring and will commit early and enroll next winter. Last month, OSU also offered Iowa quarterback Max Duggan, who is the No. 8 dual-threat prospect in the nation. Nebraska is viewed as the favorite at the moment.
