SIGNED: Grant Toutant Is Officially A Buckeye

Ohio State recruiting Grant Toutant

Offensive lineman Grant Toutant from Warren, Michigan is now officially a Buckeye.

Toutant sent in his signed Letter of Intent to join Ohio State’s 2020 recruiting class.

At 6-foot-7 and 320 lbs, he has the size to play along the offensive line right away, but will likely take some development time before he’s ready to contribute.

He missed a big chunk of his senior season due to a shoulder injury.

Here’s a look at what Toutant brings to Ohio State.

Ranking: He is a 3-star prospect, considered the No. 37 offensive tackle and 15th-best player in the state of Michigan this year.

Other Offers: He was previously committed to Penn State, but flipped to OSU over the summer. He picked the Buckeyes over offers from schools like Auburn, Michigan State, Penn State, and Wisconsin.

Positional Projection: Given his height, Toutant seems like a fairly clear-cut tackle prospect.

Commitment: He committed to the Buckeyes in June 2019, flipping his commitment from Penn State.

Enrolling: Toutant will wait until summer 2020 to enroll at OSU.

Projected Impact: Offensive line was a major area of need this season, and the Buckeyes made sure it was addressed. Toutant is one of six offensive linemen in this year’s class.

Toutant is athletic, but still learning the tackle position. Missing time with that shoulder injury this year didn’t help.

He will very likely take a redshirt season in 2020 as he builds strength and refines his technique and then start to make a push for playing time in 2021.
