COLUMBUS — Ohio State has found its quarterback of the future ... to succeed its quarterbacks of the future.

Massillon Washington freshman Danny Clark committed to the Buckeyes late Friday — more than three years before he can make his word official.

Viewed as a possible future 5-star prospect, the 6-3, 200-pound Clark passed for 1,644 yards and 17 touchdowns as the first freshman to start at quarterback in Massillon’s storied history. He was already drawing interest from Florida State, Georgia, Arkansas, West Virginia, and Michigan State among others, according to recruiting services.


The first freshman quarterback anyone could recall committing to OSU, the Clark is the Buckeyes’ only pledge beyond the class of 2015. He will be able to sign in February 2017.


Though the Buckeyes’ outlook next season will pivot largely on whether 2-time reigning Big Ten MVP Braxton Miller returns for his senior year, they appear set at quarterback for the near future. OSU has redshirt freshman Cardale Jones — a 6-5, 250-pound dual threat from Cleveland — 4-star freshman J.T. Barrett and a commitment in this year’s class from Georgia’s Stephen Collier.

don't think or haven't seen a lot of Cordell Jones, although he does have the size to compete if the skill set could be worked on they mite have a Lil something to work with, i would keep on keeping on be id settle on Cordell, Barrett is probably a better QB,but i think they have other plans for Barrett,Meyer will have a good one that's for sure hes pretty good at recruiting and closing on the high school/Jr-collage transfers its just plane SICK, "GO BUCKS"
