irish_buffalo will become famous soon enough
Saw the kid play basketball and was impressed. No brainer for a TE or an OT which is where he will likely end up.

I guess Royer was chosen over him at OSU for TE { blocking at camp I read was an issue } but in my opinion he is better off as many of the Ohio kids are at other schools with a little less pressure and competition at certain positions .

Athletically he is really good and has a ton of potential . Will be better off working hard to get bigger and stronger without the Lachey name pressure at OSU . Great choice and a school that has put more guys in the NFL than most realize .

That publication might want to learn to use articles in their story titles.

“Top” Ohio can have very different interpretations, while specifying “the” top or “a” top Ohio prospect is much more clear. Though, “Top Ohio Prospect Commits to Iowa”; possibly implying Ohio’s best player left the state, may have been purposeful for more clicks.

Semantics aside, my first thought when I saw the name was just what someone else posted - he’s wise in my opinion to get out of being a legend and having to live up to his dad’s success.

I think “ top “ recruit just meant he is in the top tier . If you are a “ TOP “ recruit in a state like it just means you have multiple power five offers which Lachey had . Putting the word THE “ in front is what would be done if say Jack Sawyer had decided to commit to Iowa for instance . Most people who would read this know Lachey isn’t the top guy but would really know seeing he wasn’t offered by Ohio State yet . If he was The top guy in the class ? He certainly would have been . He could have been offered eventually but Iowa looking at the recent draft has done well developing tight ends .

Top is singular in this sentence, not plural. " Top Ohio Prospect" means highest.

Yup; noted grammarian RadioDave made us take the bait on this one. His bank account just got a few cents richer.
