    2. JERMAINE MATHEWS, CB
    Mathews has climbed more than 100 spots in 247Sports’ composite rankings, gone from a three-star prospect to a four-star prospect and picked up offers from some of the biggest programs in college football since the beginning of June. That all started with his performance at Ohio State’s first camp of the summer on June 1.

    He didn’t have an Ohio State offer going into that camp, but he left no doubt that he deserved one by the end of it. In fact, Mathews was so blanketing in coverage during one-on-ones that he had his own cheering section of Ohio State players telling their coaches he deserved an offer.

    Mathews – who has also received offers from Oklahoma, LSU and Alabama over the past month – has emerged as one of Ohio State’s top cornerback targets in the 2023 class as a result of his camp performance. The Cincinnati native could potentially join the Buckeyes’ 2023 class one week from now, on July 1, when he is set to announce his commitment.

    MATHEWS SETS COMMITMENT DATE FOR FRIDAY
    Ohio State will soon get its answer whether it did enough to land one of its top remaining cornerback targets in the 2023 cycle. Four-star cornerback Jermaine Mathews dropped a top 6 consisting of Ohio State, Penn State, Oklahoma, Jackson State, LSU and Cincinnati on Wednesday. Shortly after his list was revealed, he also picked up an offer from Alabama.

    What’s more, the 6-foot, 175-pound Ohio cornerback has set a commitment date for 2 p.m. on Friday and will make his college selection at a public ceremony at Winton Woods High School. Ohio State seems to be a clear front-runner for his recruitment, but all will be revealed by the end of the week.

    Mathews picked up his OSU offer on June 1 after excelling at Ohio State’s first recruiting camp. His performance was so impressive that Dan ranked him as his second most impressive prospect he saw in the Buckeyes’ entire June camp cycle and was bolstered by the fact that nearly 10 Ohio State players were in attendance cheering him on and screamed “offer him” after his reps.

    “It felt really good,” Mathews told Eleven Warriors after receiving his offer. “It’s really hard to explain because it’s something you’ve been waiting on for so long. And then when it happened, it’s just like, wow. (Day) said I earned it.”

    Mathews said an OSU offer would change his recruitment “a lot” and in four days, we’ll learn if he decides to commit to the school he grew up rooting for.

    “Just growing up in Ohio, everybody wants to go to Ohio State. Everybody just dreams of playing for Ohio State and getting recruited by them. And now, my dream is coming true,” Mathews said after his camp performance.
