Ohio State picked up another athlete for its 2019 recruiting class on Wednesday night when Steele Chambers announced his commitment via social media.
A 1,300-yard running back and a 70-tackle linebacker last season for Trinity Catholic High School in Roswell, Georgia, Chambers used Twitter to make his choice known.

“Thanks to coach (Urban) Meyer, coach (Tony) Alford and the entire Buckeye coaching staff for their patience, support and guidance,” Chambers wrote. “At this time I am humbled to say I will be continuing my athletic and academic career at The Ohio State University.”
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Chambers is ranked 29th nationally among athletes — players who could end up on offense or defense in college — by the 247Sports composite of the major recruiting services. He joins Ronnie Hickman of Wayne, New Jersey, who committed last week, in the 2019 OSU class that now has six members.
Defensive lineman from Mentor commits
Ohio State gained a and second from Mentor Monday when four-star defensive end prospect Noah Potter made his pledge.
“Officially committed to The Ohio State University,” Potter wrote on his Twitter account.
Potter, 6 feet 5 and 250 pounds, is from Mentor High School, just like offensive lineman Ryan Jacoby. Potter is considered to be No. 18 among strongside defensive end prospects nationally in the 247Sports composite of the major recruiting rankings.
