Where did the top Ohio high school prospects in the 2022 recruiting class sign?

The Ohio State Buckeyes did very well as far as the early signing period goes, but that takes into account the national landscape. I am specifically curious about how many of the top prospects from the great state of Ohio stayed home with the Buckeyes and who decided to move on.

Being raised in Ohio has given me some intense state pride and it always stings when Ohio State misses out on some top homegrown talent like when the Buckeyes lost out on Jackson Carman to Clemson, Xavier Peters to Florida State, and Trenton Gillison to Michigan State in 2018.

The following includes the top ten 2022 prospects from the state of Ohio and where they are planning on playing.

Gi’Bran Payne, RB, Indiana Hoosiers

Gi’Bran Payne actually never received an offer from Ohio State and that makes sense considering what the Buckeyes have on the two-deep, but Payne is a four-star hailing from LaSalle and will be facing Ohio State during his time at Indiana. The Hoosiers won the back over Kentucky and Alabama among others.

Blake Miller, OT, Clemson Tigers

Blake Miller is a four-star offensive tackle from Strongsville and has been committed to Clemson since early on in his recruitment. Ohio State was seen as their only competitor due to his father being a Buckeye alum. The Buckeyes did offer the young man, but it became clear that he wouldn’t fit into the equation.
