Ohio State adds four-star linebacker Arvell Reese to 2023 class
Arvell Reese, a four-star linebacker out of Cleveland, announced that he would join the Buckeyes' 2023 recruiting class.
Standing at 6-3, 212 pounds, Reese is the No 277 player in the country and No. 20 linebacker in the 2023 class according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Reese is also the No. 7 player in the state of Ohio behind Ohio State commits Luke Montgomery, Malik Hartford, Jermaine Mathews and Austin Siereveld.
Reese is one of many former Ohio State players that hail from Glenville High School in Cleveland, including cornerback Marshon Lattimore, quarterback Cardale Jones, wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., safety Donte Whitner, quarterback Troy Smith and linebacker Chris Worley.
Ohio State is also targeting 2024 four-star cornerback Bryce West from Glenville, who also has the attention of Alabama, Michigan and Notre Dame.
Reese is Ohio State's first linebacker in the 2023 class after each of the Buckeyes' main linebacker targets — Tackett Curtis, Raul Aguirre and Troy Bowles — each committed elsewhere.
