    When 2024 cornerback Ellis Robinson IV received an Ohio State offer from secondary coach Matt Barnes last week, he couldn’t help but smile.

    “It was an offer I have been waiting for,” Robinson IV told Eleven Warriors.

    Robinson IV, a cornerback from Connecticut, is rated as the No. 4 overall player and the second-best cornerback in the 2024 class, per 247Sports’ composite rankings. He already has 17 Division I offers including Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Penn State and Tennessee.

    The Buckeyes have shown interest in Robinson IV since he began his sophomore season at Iona Preparatory School (New Rochelle, New York) earlier this fall.

    “They have been evaluating me every week,” Robinson IV said. “That’s something unique about OSU. They actually watched all my games, that says a lot about what they think of me as a player.”

    Robinson IV says the respect is mutual on his end.

    “OSU is high on my offer list because they are relevant every year and have high academics,” he said. “Ohio State is known for putting out NFL DBs, and I think I can add to that list.”

    Robinson IV told Eleven Warriors the Buckeyes are recruiting him as a cornerback, but the 6-foot, 175-pound playmaker likes to refer to himself as a defensive back because he believes he can play anywhere in the secondary. He has helped guide Iona Prep to a 7-1 record and has recorded seven interceptions this season.

    Robinson IV did not root for any particular college team growing up. Rather, he said he just watched elite defensive backs and tried to learn something from each of them. Robinson IV says Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey is his favorite player, and he tries to pattern his game after Ramsey.

    The sophomore standout defensive back said he’s played a game at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton once, but hasn’t been to Ohio otherwise. That will change soon, he says.

    “I plan to visit OSU after my season is over,” Robinson IV said. “My family and I look forward to meeting all the coaches, touring the facilities and building a relationship with OSU.”

    Robinson IV has visited Rutgers, Penn State and Miami this fall. His next planned visit is Ohio State after he completes his prep season.

    ROBINSON IV TO VISIT OSU JUNE 24-26
    Next weekend will be another massive recruiting weekend for Ohio State, with around 16 recruits expected to take official visits that weekend. The weekend got even bigger as of Thursday when OSU 2024 priority four-star cornerback target Ellis Robinson IV announced he’d be taking an unofficial visit to Columbus June 24-26.

    Robinson IV has been high on OSU for quite some time and put the Buckeyes in his updated top 10 list on June 10. He’s considered the ninth-best player in the 2024 cycle and the second-best cornerback per 247Sports’ composite rankings.

    CB ELLIS ROBINSON IV
    The final weekend of June was a big weekend for Ohio State recruiting. The Buckeyes hosted multiple highly coveted 2023 prospects on official visits and have seen some of the fruits of their labor pay off with commitments in the weeks that followed.

    One visitor from that weekend who may have been overlooked in all the hoopla was Robinson IV, a five-star cornerback in 2024. Robinson IV picked up an OSU offer in October and has been high on the Buckeyes since. He included OSU on his top 10 list on June 10 and is developing a strong rapport with Tim Walton. After already landing four cornerback commitments in 2023, Robinson IV is Walton’s chance to land a true premier cornerback target in 2024.
