“I was on cloud nine on Friday, and I’m even more excited now,” Leroux told the Norwalk Reflector. “It’s like a great weight off my shoulders. I’ve always wanted to be a Buckeye growing up as a kid. Everyone knows an Ohio boy wants to play for Ohio State, and it’s crazy to think I get to be one of those kids.”

Leroux becomes the fourth offensive lineman in the 2020 class, joining five-star Paris Johnson, four-star Luke Wypler and three-star Jakob Jones. The Buckeyes are thin in terms of depth at that position, so adding number has been a priority.

Leroux, who’s listed as 6-foot-8, 320 pounds, is ranked 95th among offensive tackles nationally by He helped lead Norwalk to the Division III state semifinals last season.
