The incredible run of success for Ohio State football’s recruiting machine continued on Saturday.
Luke Wypler, a 4-star offensive guard in the 2020 class announced on Twitter that he was committing to the Buckeyes.
Wypler (St. Joseph Regional/Montvale, NJ) is currently rated the third-best guard in the class and the No. 75 player overall for 2020.
He joins 5-Star OT Paris Johnson and 4-Star OT Jake Wray as members of the Buckeyes’ 2020 class along the offensive line.
The Bucks already have five commitments for 2020, all from players rated in the top-200 nationally in the 247 Composite.
Wypler picked Ohio State over his other finalist, Stanford.
He also held offers from schools like Penn State, Notre Dame, and Michigan.
The Buckeyes also have three 4-star offensive line commits in the 2019 class, including Harry Miller, Doug Nester, and Ryan Jacoby. That class will likely end up with five or six linemen.
Between that and the hot start for 2020, Ohio State should have a formidable line for years to come.

Key in Wypler’s recruitment was his connection with Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano. Wypler attended Rutgers camps for years while Schiano was the head coach of the Scarlet Knights.

This is not the first time Schiano was instrumental in landing a top-flight offensive lineman for the Buckeyes. He was also a factor in OSU signing 5-star 2018 offensive tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere. Schiano was a volunteer coach at Berkeley Prep in Tampa following his stint with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Ohio State’s 2020 recruiting class is currently ranked second in the nation and tops overall in the Big Ten.
