    Ohio State offers Najee Story and he’ll visit this weekend
    The push Ryan Day and the Buckeyes are making to recruit Ohio more aggressively continues. This week, Ohio State offered Solon defensive end Najee Story.

    The offer was first reported by Bucknuts.com’s Bill Greene, who also reported that the 6-foot-4, 235-pound Story will visit Ohio State this coming weekend as one of the rising number of in-state targets set to be on campus in Columbus.


    Story visited the Buckeyes in December for a bowl-prep practice and was at Michigan for a junior day with the Wolverines last weekend. He’ll be one of two in-state sophomore defensive ends in Columbus, joining Pickerington North’s Jack Sawyer, who will return for another visit with Ohio State though he’ll only be on campus early Saturday due to a basketball game scheduled for 2:30 p.m. that afternoon.

    Solon defensive end Najee Story enjoys Ohio State visit
    The Buckeyes got their 2021 recruiting class off to a fantastic start when future 5-star defensive end Jack Sawyer committed to Ohio State.

    Sawyer visited the Buckeyes over the weekend and was on campus with another 2021 in-state defensive end who has quickly become a major name to know for Ohio State fans: Najee Story. He was offered by the Buckeyes a week ago — and is still in shock about the offer.

    “I’ve been watching Ohio State my whole life growing up in Ohio, and for them to offer me is just incredible,” Story told Lettermen Row. “This offer was definitely huge. They’re basically my dream school and just knowing how good they’ve been recently added to that ‘wow’ factor.”

    The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Story visited Ohio State in December for a bowl practice, and the Solon prospect was back in town for a key weekend in Columbus.


    “I only watched the practice the first time,” Story said. “I talked with some coaches briefly before but this was way more in-depth. I spent a lot of time with [Ohio State defensive line] Coach [Larry] Johnson.

    “I really liked him. He seems like a great guy that cares for his players. He just said that he thinks that I can be a great player there and that he would develop me to be able to compete.”

    There was some talk heading into the weekend that Story could bring his recruitment to an early end, and while he didn’t do that, his recruitment almost has the feel of inevitability that he will end up eventually picking Ohio State. Right now, he’s more focused on rehabbing a broken leg that prematurely ended his sophomore year.

    “I didn’t commit,” he said. “I’m really new to all this recruiting stuff, so I’m going to see how everything plays out. Right now, I just want to work on getting back onto the field.”

    No commitment yet for Najee Story after Ohio State visit
    Another major Ohio prospect in the Class of 2021 with an offer from the Buckeyes held off on committing during his spring game visit as well. For Solon’s Najee Story the issue seems to remain simple: More of his family needs to see the Ohio State program up close.

    “It felt great down there,” Story told Lettermen Row. “It was my first time in the Shoe. I can’t think about committing until my mom and sisters can meet the coaches and talk with them.”

    Story, a 6-foot-4, 235-pound, 4-star defensive end, spent time with Larry Johnson and 5-star commitment Jack Sawyer.

    “We talked to some guys and built better relationships with coaches and saw more of the facilities,” he said. “My dad liked it a lot. I’m getting more comfortable there. Unfortunately, my mom couldn’t come down this time, so I’m going to have to get her down to talk to Coach Johnson.”
