    Trey Leroux Leaves Spring Practice with OSU Offer

    Norwalk-native Trey Leroux attended Ohio State’s spring practice Friday, and the offensive tackle left with an offer.

    The No. 38 prospect in Ohio’s 2020 class becomes the 22nd offensive tackle in the 2020 class with an Ohio State offer. Leroux also has offers from West Virginia, Rutgers, Purdue and — most recently — Indiana.

    The No. 19 2020 Ohio prospect was also in Columbus for Ohio State’s spring practice Friday. Offensive guard Terah Edwards out of Groveport Madison visit Ohio State. The No. 32 guard in the nation does not yet have an Ohio State offer, but he does have offers from Michigan State, Northwestern, Indiana and others.

    Trey Leroux offered by Ohio State

    Last Sunday afternoon, Dotting the ‘Eyes reported that Norwalk 2020 offensive lineman Trey Leroux was going to be back at Ohio State this weekend — and he was, arriving on Friday morning. Leroux spent the entire weekend in Columbus as his brother participated in the state’s high school wrestling championships, but the highlight of the trip for the 6-foot-8, 320-pounder came Friday afternoon.

    Ohio State offered Leroux, the state’s 38th-ranked prospect. And with that offer, the program puts itself in a position to land a commitment from another in-state lineman in the near future. The timing, like the offer and commitment from Jakob James in January, feels unexpected. But it’s another sign that things are going to be done a little bit different at Ohio State under Day’s regime.

    The Buckeyes need six offensive linemen in the Class of 2020, and if Leroux commits, he’ll be the fourth to say yes to Ohio State. That means Day, Mark Pantoni and Greg Studrawa can focus on landing two more of their major targets from around the country while not worrying about falling behind and losing out in-state prospects that they’d likely come back around to months from now.

    That, however, doesn’t mean it’s a done deal between the Buckeyes and the massive lineman. For months Leroux has been recruited by Ed Warinner and Michigan. His father is a Michigan fan, so there’s a little family pull away from the Buckeyes if the rivals decide to offer.

    It’s clear that if Michigan offers, it’s only because Ohio State did. But that’s still a good reason for anybody hoping to steal one from the Buckeyes.

    Trey Leroux Isn’t “Starstruck”
    As was documented in yesterday’s story about three-star Norwalk, Ohio native Trey Leroux’s commitment to Ohio State, Leroux had just received his offer after visiting Ohio State and watching spring practice March 8. He chose to commit to that offer on March 11. Norwalk High School head football coach Todd Fox said, though, that Leroux didn’t make his commitment because of a “starstruck” Ohio State offer.


    Fox said Ohio State offensive line coach Greg Studrawa had done a good job of developing a relationship with Leroux since the spring of 2018 and that Leroux needed one look at how Ohio State ran its program and practices before deciding he new where he wanted to go.

    “We sat down and talked over the weekend a couple times, and we talked about how maybe he needed to wait and think it through,” Fox said. “But as the weekend went further, he just said, ‘There’s no thinking. I know what I want to do.’”

    Leroux was searching for a place that felt like home, where he could be treated like part of a family and develop as a player, Fox said, and some other schools had been providing that type of a feeling for Leroux. He had offers from schools like Indiana, Purdue, Rutgers and other non-Power 5 programs. He had been receiving interest from schools like Notre Dame, Michigan State and Michigan but none of the schools had pulled the offer trigger on the 6-foot-8 Ohioan.

    “Most kids in Ohio dream of playing for Ohio State, but he’s learned a lot through this process and that there are things other than that out there,” Fox said. “It’s not just a starstruck Ohio State offer. It was, ‘Okay, all the things I want, Ohio State offers.’”

    Fox said one of the things that stood out to Leroux was a one-on-one conversation with new head coach Ryan Day, where Day made Leroux feel as if he would be entering a familial atmosphere.

    “He really made him feel like, ‘Okay, this is a guy that wants me. They want me to be a part of this program and part of this family,’” Fox said. “That’s what he was looking for.”

    Leroux, at 6-foot-8, 320 pounds, has a lot of shaping up to do before he graduates, and Studrawa and Day have communicated to Fox and Leroux that they look forward to seeing how he can change his body before he even steps foot on campus in 2020. Fox said the change from his sophomore season to his junior season was already impressive, but the change that can and is already happening between his junior and senior seasons could be exponential.

    Just watched a clip of him from 11 warriors...not bad.
    Decent feet, bends for someone his size, not afraid to use his hands...this could be a good one.
    Go Bucks

    Trey Leroux is a Big Man
    The first camp that took place Sunday was the offensive line and defensive line camp, and the first thing most spectators noticed was how big Ohio State commit and Norwalk High School offensive tackle Trey Leroux is.

    The tackle stands at 6-foot-8, 320 pounds, and while there were some offensive linemen that rivaled his size, such as Indiana tackle 6-foot-6, 300-pound Ohio State target Blake Fisher, Leroux was clearly the most coordinated and matured prospect of the bunch.

    In individual drills, Leroux was always the lead participant, and when the coaches moved on to other participants, Leroux was getting in extra reps with his partners.

    Leroux carries his weight well, and while he will likely need to drop some of it once he gets to Columbus, it shouldn’t affect his frame too much.

    The Norwalk native seems to have the psyche to improve on an intellectual level and shows to be coachable, but he was beaten a few times in one-on-one drills, particularly against stronger defensive ends that also had speed. He was fooled on a spin move and was outran around the edge twice.

    He has more improvements to make, but that was expected from him before and after he committed to Ohio State.

    Ohio State commit Trey Leroux placed second at the Division I Regional in shot put, with a throw of 55 feet, 8.5 inches. That was good for the sixth-best shot put throw at the Division I level this season.
