    The Scarlet and Gray were able to go into Georgia and land the state's 12th best player in four-star defensive lineman Kayden McDonald, who committed to Ohio State on Oct. 31, 2022. The No. 18 defensive lineman in the class, according to the 247Sports rankings, McDonald gives the Buckeyes a big body at 6-foot-3, 310 pounds, who they will hope to groom into a dominant interior defensive lineman.

    Scout's take: Possesses ideal size at 6-foot-3 and 300-pounds plus, possesses limited growth potential to add additional weight to frame. Displays good athletic ability as an interior defensive lineman, showing the ability to play multiple positions on the defensive line.

    Exhibits good quick twitch explosiveness off the line of scrimmage with an excellent first step. Nimble for his size, possessing good initial foot and body quickness. Can with speed, quickness, and power off the line of scrimmage. Flashes heavy hands at the point of attack, in addition to good play strength, showing the ability to penetrate consistently behind the line of scrimmage. Possesses the frame and the ability to anchor the run while also adding some pass-rush ability as an interior lineman.

    Projects as a one technique in a 4-3 defense with the ability to offer some position versatility along the defensive line if needed. Forceful prospect that has the ability to impact the run and pass as an interior lineman and projects to a Power Five multi-year starter with the ability to outperform his current projection.
