    Luke Wypler
    Luke Wypler plays in one of the toughest areas to play football in the Northeastern United States, as he plays schools like Bergen Catholic, St. Peter’s Prep and Don Bosco – all schools that Ohio State recruits heavily around. In 2018, it was Wypler’s team that won out and earned a New Jersey state title, beating Bergen Catholic in the final. This year, Wypler is coming off surgery and should be at full health by the time Week One rolls around.

    First Game: vs, JSerra Catholic, Aug. 30

    Game to Watch: Bergen Catholic, Oct. 12

    For Cody Simon, I said that the game to watch was St. Peter’s Prep’s game against St. Joseph Regional, and while that will and has been a game to watch for Wypler as well, his game against Bergen Catholic will be more noteworthy because St. Joseph Regional defeated Bergen Catholic in the 2018 title game and Michigan four-star safety Jordan Morant will be playing on defense. Ohio State defensive end Javontae Jean-Baptiste graduated from Bergen Catholic too.

    Luke Wypler excited for return to Ohio State
    He’s been committed to Ohio State for more than a year, and he’s a top-100 prospect nationally regarded as the country’s top-overall center prospect in the Class of 2020. On the field, there’s not much Luke Wypler isn’t capable of doing, and off the field he’s certainly seen plenty as well. But this weekend, the 6-foot-4, 290-pound St. Joseph’s Regional (Montvale, N.J.) star will see something new — a college football game.

    “I’m going back to Ohio State this weekend,” Wypler told Lettermen Row on Tuesday night. “It’s my first time to a game. Any college game. I may be the only national recruit that can say that.”

    Wypler is making the visit with his father, who has never been to a college football game either. Wypler pointed out that it’s not as though he’s made a decision to miss games in the past, but that circumstances — namely his high school football games — haven’t afforded him the opportunity. He knows that makes him a bit unique, and he’s perfectly fine with that.

    “I love being a little different,” New Jersey’s top-ranked 2020 prospect said. “It’s not like I waited, though, it’s just that my high school plays maybe one Friday night game a year and the rest are on Saturday afternoons. I just haven’t been able to visit.”

    Wypler will arrive in Columbus on Friday morning. He was previously on campus over the June 14 weekend when he was in town for his official visit. That trip gave him a chance to get a bit closer to a pair of offensive linemen who also pride themselves on being a bit different: freshman Harry Miller and sophomore Nicholas Petit-Frere. He’s been close to Petit-Frere for a while now, and having those types of guys on the Ohio State roster are part of the reason he’s never looked back since making his college decision in the summer of 2018.

    “Nick is one of my closest friends on the team,” Wypler said. “The day before I committed, me and him were on the phone for three hours. That’s when I decided to pull the trigger. [The people are] one of the things I immediately fell in love with at Ohio State.”
