    Ohio State offers nation’s No. 1-ranked 2023 receiver
    The Buckeyes have been on a remarkable run when it comes to receivers recruiting, nabbing the No. 2-ranked prospect at the position in 2019 (Garrett Wilson) signing the top-ranked players in 2020 (Julian Fleming) and 2021 (Emeka Egbuka) and owning a commitment from current No. 1-ranked 2022 receiver Caleb Burton.

    On Tuesday morning, Ohio State officially entered the chat for the player ranked No. 1 at wideout in 2023, TRU Prep Academy (Miami Gardens, Fla.) star Brandon Inniss. The Buckeyes gave the likely 5-star talent scholarship offer No. 30.

    “I feel really blessed right now,” Inniss told Lettermen Row. “To see the wide receivers that they’ve brought in and to see I’m one of the first one Brian Hartline offered in 2023 is an amazing feeling.”

    Ohio State’s tradition and the relationship Inniss has with Keenan Bailey and Brian Hartline make the Buckeyes a real contender down the road for Inniss.

    “I view their program as one of the best in the country, if not the best,” he said. “I’ve been waiting on this offer. All my hard work is paying off.”

    Inniss told Lettermen Row in January that Hartline promised him he’d be a top choice for the Buckeyes when contact with his class was permitted.

    “He told me that basically he will be recruiting me hard after September 1,” Inniss said. “And I’m his guy in my class.”

    The offer coming now proves that.

    BRANDON INNISS
    Speaking of those to keep an eye on, the nation’s No. 1 receiver and No. 7 overall player certainly hits that mark as well.

    Inniss is a 5-foot-11, 180-pound receiver who is ranked No. 2 in the state of Florida out of TRU Prep Academy (Miami Gardens) and who we will be talking about for the next several months in the same vein as a trio of recent Ohio State receiver signees and commits.

    Iniss is a top candidate to finish the cycle ranked as the nation’s top receiver and would join Julian Fleming (2020), Emeka Egbuka (2021) and Caleb Burton (2022) as the next in line to earn that distinction.

    You might remember that all three of those players committed to Brian Hartline, with two of them now at Ohio State. (With Burton well on his way after doubling and tripling down on his commitment in recent weeks.)

    Seeing all those players, plus the likes of Garrett Wilson, Jaxon Smith-Njigba and others shine in Columbus has obviously not been lost on Inniss.

    “I feel really blessed right now, to see the wide receivers they brought in and to see I’m the first one he offered in 2023 is an amazing feeling,” Inniss told Eleven Warriors. “I like how much they produce wide receivers to the NFL and that’s my end goal. I talked to some guys that had conversations with Coach Hartline, and they all had everything good to say about him.”

    One of those players he spoke with was a target who actually didn’t commit to Hartline but still had good things to say about the nation’s top receivers coach: Troy Stellato, out of Cardinal Gibbons (Fort Lauderdale), who committed to Clemson in the 2021 class.

    Like Stellato did, Inniss plays his high school ball in the southeast region of Florida, and also like Stellato, he has formed a good relationship with up-and-coming Ohio State assistant Keenan Bailey, a native of Pompano Beach. The two have spoken already about how Inniss’ skillset matches up to what each player in the nation’s best receivers duo brings to the table.

    “Coach Kee named a few guys like Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave’s deep play abilities,” Inniss said. “I bring everything to the table. I’m a do-it-all kind of guy. Put me in the slot at wideout in the backfield and motion me out, I can do it all. And my film speaks for itself.”

    Sounds like the Buckeyes’ offense and Inniss’ ability would be a good match.

    “The offense is very electrifying, and that’s an offense I can see myself in a couple years from now,” Inniss said.

    His current offer sheet stands at nearly 30 programs and is highlighted by Auburn, Baylor, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Oklahoma, Penn State, Texas and Texas A&M. He has already accepted an invitation to the All-American Bowl.

    INNISS TRANSFERS
    Since we're on the subject of high school receivers recruited by Ohio State transferring, another elite-level pass catcher with a Buckeyes offer is on the move.

    Brandon Inniss, a composite five-star and a player likely to finish where he has started as the No. 1 receiver in his 2023 recruiting class, announced on Monday that he is transferring from one Florida school to another.

    He is headed toward powerhouse American Heritage High School after playing his sophomore season at Miami Gardens (Florida) TRU Prep and being a freshman and eighth-grade starter at Fort Lauderdale's University School.
