The Ohio State football program made some waves last week by landing some major recruits to its 2015 class.
Urban Meyer and company scored another big victory Sunday by getting a verbal commitment from Kevin Feder, a New Jersey native who really had no connection to the university until Thursday, when he showed up to Buckeye camp. He was offered the next day, according to Bob Baptist of The Columbus Dispatch.
Rivals.com lists Feder as a three-star recruit, and ranks the Don Bosco prep standout as the 50th best tackle in the country.
Feder is listed at 6-9, 305 pounds, and had previously committed to Miami (Fla.). The huge lineman becomes the 10th commitment to Ohio State’s 2015 class, and the seventh verbal secured by Meyer in the month of June.
According to the Dispatch story, Feder is still inexperienced playing the offensive line, which is why he believes he’s only a three-star prospect. Feder played mostly defensive line before fracturing his tibia (leg) as junior.
“I don’t have a real problem with any of the ranking stuff,” he said. “I pay attention to that, but I really just try to focus on my personal goals and getting better every day. I can think I’m a five-star in my head.”
Meyer is still at work, and will look to add more top prospects. Here’s a list to the Buckeyes’ remaining targets, via Land Grant Holy Land.
