    UNDERWOOD MAKES SECOND VISIT TO OHIO STATE
    While Ohio State hasn’t narrowed in on a 2024 quarterback yet (though that could change next weekend), the 2025 cycle seems pretty cut and dry to this point, as the Buckeyes have their eyes on two main targets: Ryan Montgomery and Bryce Underwood.

    The latter of whom will be on campus this weekend for the first time since picking up his Ohio State offer in December. It’s another opportunity for the Buckeyes to get to know the five-star signal caller, and perhaps could help set up the possibility for OSU to return the favor to Michigan by stealing a top in-state target after Ohio running back Jordan Marshall committed to the Wolverines.

    UNDERWOOD TO VISIT OSU IN JUNE
    The top-rated quarterback in the 2025 recruiting class is planning a return visit to Ohio State. Per 247Sports, five-star Michigan prospect Bryce Underwood is planning on visiting Columbus on June 3.

    Underwood, who was offered by the Buckeyes following his visit in December, had planned to visit OSU in March but had to reschedule it for the summer.

    Entering his junior year, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound prospect has already won two state championships. In his sophomore year at Belleville High School (Belleville, Michigan), Underwood threw for 2,751 yards and 37 touchdowns while running for 642 yards and eight touchdowns.

    Michigan 2025 quarterback Bryce Underwood more than lived up to his five-star billing on Sunday.

    Underwood, considered the 2025 class’ No. 1 quarterback per 247Sports’ composite rankings, was among the top performers at the Under Armour Next camp in Obetz, Ohio. The Belleville resident was named an MVP of the quarterback group, along with 2025 four-star signal caller Ryan Montgomery, after dazzling evaluators with both his arm strength and his precision on passes Sunday. Among those watching Underwood throw was Ohio State head coach Ryan Day, who was allowed to attend the camp because his son, RJ Day, was a participant in the event.

    After the camp wrapped up, Underwood visited Ohio State for the first time since picking up his Buckeyes offer in December. Before his trip to campus, Underwood told a group of reporters in Obetz he’d be looking forward to seeing how the Buckeyes’ coaches interacted with him outside of the football field.

    Underwood is one of two quarterbacks in the 2025 class to hold an offer from OSU, with Montgomery being the other. Underwood said he speaks with OSU quarterbacks coach Corey Dennis once per week and that the pair have developed a solid relationship.

    “We build a bond almost every single time we talk,” Underwood said of Dennis.

    Each of Ohio State’s last three quarterbacks under Day’s tutelage – Dwayne Haskins, Justin Fields and C.J. Stroud – has been a top-15 NFL draft pick. Underwood said OSU’s developmental track record has his attention.

    “That’s a big factor. Because one of my biggest goals is to be a Hall of Famer in the NFL. With them producing a lot of great quarterbacks, that has a lot to do with it,” Underwood said of his interest in the Buckeyes.

    You can tell from the above quote that Underwood has no shortage of confidence. That likely stems from being the starting quarterback on a high school team that has won back-to-back state championships, his recruiting ranking, his 35 Division I offers and his overall talent. Last season, Underwood led Belleville High School (Belleville, Michigan) to a perfect 14-0 season by passing for 2,751 yards and 37 touchdowns with a 65% completion rate and 642 rushing yards. He also won a state title as a freshman with a 13-1 record, throwing for 2,888 yards with 39 touchdown passes and a 62% completion rate.

    While Underwood says he isn’t opposed to attending a college a long way from home, he’s familiar with the Ohio State and Michigan rivalry growing up in Michigan. Underwood said he grew up a Michigan fan, but that had more to do with playing on a youth football team named the Wolverines than his Michigan roots. As a recruit, he’s not taking sides in college football’s most historic rivalry.

    “May the best team win,” Underwood said of the rivalry.
