    Jayson Oweh feeling good about Buckeyes and Larry Johnson

    Though he’s a relatively new name to the recruiting board in 2018, it’d be wise to start paying close attention to Blairstown, N.J., star Jayson Oweh.

    The 6-foot-5, 236-pound defensive end is certainlypaying close attention to Ohio State after receiving an offer from the Buckeyes a little more than a week ago. This past Sunday, at an Under Armour All-America combine in New Jersey, Oweh talked with Land of 10’s Tyler Donohue about that offer and his overall interest in the Buckeyes program, which sits just below Penn State on his current list.

    “Penn State has always been up there,” he said to Donohue. “Right now they’re like top two. The second would probably be Ohio State, Notre Dame or Wisconsin.”

    Oweh has not been to Ohio State, though he intends to make the short drive to Columbus this summer. He is, however, getting to know a pair of Buckeyes defensive assistants, Greg Schiano and Larry Johnson Sr. Oweh is a future defensive end, so it’s Johnson who will be responsible for building the relationship for Ohio State.

    “Coach Johnson is a legend,” Oweh said. “He sees something special in me and really likes my length and athleticism. He wants to help me develop.”

    The athleticism that caught Johnson’s eye was on full display Sunday. He ran the second-fastest 40-yard dash time of any player in the camp (4.63), winning the Big Man MVP award and earning a trip to the illSpeed finals, which bring together the nation’s fastest prep football prospects.

    COMING OUT OF NOWHERE

    Just two weeks after he earned an offer from Ohio State, Blairstown, New Jersey, Blair Academy three-star defensive end Jayson Oweh included the Buckeyes in his Top 10 alongside Georgia Tech, Harvard, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Penn State, Rutgers, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin.

    The 6-foot-5, 236-pound Oweh is considered the 14th-best strong-side defensive end and No. 391 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, though he's only played one year of organized football. He recorded 42 tackles, seven sacks and five tackles for a loss for the Bucs last season.

    Defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and the above-mentioned Johnson have taken the lead in Oweh's recruitment, and offered him a scholarship after watching him practice earlier this month. He called it “one of the best accomplishments I've had.”

    Oweh's stock has risen significantly following his performance at The Opening New Jersey Regional last month, as he was named the event's most valuable defensive lineman after posting a 4.63-second 40-yard dash, a 4.57-second shuttle, a 44.5 feet power ball throw and a 34.9-inch vertical leap. He plans to visit Columbus for the first time this summer and then return for a game this fall.

    ANOTHER OUT-OF-NOWHERE COMMIT?

    Just a few weeks after he earned a scholarship offer from Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and defensive line coach Larry Johnson, Blairstown, New Jersey, three-star defensive end Jayson Oweh told Eleven Warriors he'll make his first trip to Columbus for the Buckeyes' June 9 one-day position camp.

    “[I'm looking forward to seeing] just how coach [Urban] Meyer is in person on a personal level, the campus of course and the defensive line meetings and the way the defensive line is coached,” he said.

    The 6-foot-5, 236-pound Oweh is considered the 14th-best strong-side defensive end and No. 391 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, though he's only played one year of organized football. He recorded 42 tackles, seven sacks and five tackles for a loss for the Bucs last season. He recently listed a Top 10 of Georgia Tech, Harvard, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin, but the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions are the two schools standing out right now.

    “And that's off me not even visiting Ohio State,” Oweh said. “I think getting to see Ohio State and all it has to offer will really help me see where I'm at. Otherwise, I'm still trying to weight all my options.”

    Oweh's stock has risen significantly following his performance at The Opening New Jersey Regional in April, as he was named the event's most valuable defensive lineman after posting a 4.63-second 40-yard dash, a 4.57-second shuttle, a 44.5 feet power ball throw and a 34.9-inch vertical leap. It'll be the school most genuine that'll gain his pledge, though.

    “Just whatever schools proves they'll be patient with me during my learning curve,” Oweh said.

    SURGING AHEAD

    Blairstown, New Jersey, Blair Academy three-star defensive end Jayson Oweh also made his first trip to Columbus on Friday.

    “It was amazing,” Oweh told Eleven Warriors. “I loved it.”

    The 6-foot-5, 236-pound Oweh is considered the 14th-best strong-side defensive end and No. 375 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, though he's only played one year of organized football. He recorded 42 tackles, seven sacks and five tackles for a loss for the Bucs last season. He recently listed a Top 10 of Georgia Tech, Harvard, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin.

    Oweh, who earned an offer from the Buckeyes last month, spent a significant amount of time with defensive line coach Larry Johnson. He even got some individualized attention at the camp's conclusion.

    “[It] meant a lot because it was hopefully a glimpse at how it could be if I end up going there,” Oweh said. “My biggest thing is going to a place where I know I'll be developed and where they'll be patient with my learning curve. [Coach Johnson] is a guru at what he does. I think [he would be patient with me]. He really stressed that and is really excited at what he can mold me into.”

    Ohio State and Penn State are the two schools standing out early in the process, but Oweh doesn't expect to make a decision on his future until his senior season. The Buckeyes have definitely made a great impression, though.

    “They definitely are [one of my favorites], especially after the visit,” Oweh said.
