Ohio State has landed its kicker of the future, as 2020 Cincinnati La Salle prospect Jake Seibert has committed to the Buckeyes. He posted his commitment to Twitter.
Ohio State offered just two weeks ago.
Seibert (6-1 190) is the No. 1 kicker in the nation according to ChrisSailerKicking.com, which covers the kicking specialists of the recruiting world.
Here is Sailer’s scouting report on Seibert.
Jake is a special kicking talent. He is an amazing athlete with a big time leg and natural ability. He hits a great ball off the ground on field goal. He has 60+ yard range and gets excellent lift on his ball. His kickoffs are D1 ready right now. Jake drives the ball deep into the end zone with 4.0+ hang time. He is a competitor that thrives under pressure. The sky is the limit here. Jake is a fine young man with a great attitude and work ethic. Big things ahead for this Chris Sailer Kicking Kicker. Look for Jake to dominate this 2019 off season and pick up multiple D1 offers. Excellent prospect.
Last season, Seibert made all six of his field goal attempts and hit 23-of-24 extra points.
