    CLASS OF 2021 @ BOULDER CREEK | ANTHEM, AZ

    Ohio State has added a long snapper from the transfer portal.

    John Ferlmann, who was the starting long snapper at Arizona State this year, announced his commitment to Ohio State after visiting OSU on Saturday.

    A native of Phoenix, Arizona, Ferlmann handled long-snapping duties in all 12 games for the Sun Devils this year after walking on with Arizona State in 2021 and redshirting his freshman year.

    Ferlmann, who will be on scholarship at Ohio State, is the first player to join the Buckeyes via the transfer portal for the 2023 season. He becomes the third specialist to join Ohio State via the transfer portal since 2021 along with kickers Noah Ruggles (who transferred from North Carolina before the 2021 season) and Parker Lewis (who transferred from USC before the 2022 season).

    His transfer gives Ohio State another option at long snapper with the impending departure of Bradley Robinson. While walk-on Mason Arnold has handled long-snapping duties this year since Robinson suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Buckeyes’ seventh game of the year against Iowa, Ohio State has reason to bring in competition for Arnold after he botched a snap on what was supposed to be a fake punt in Ohio State’s regular-season-ending loss to Michigan.

    The addition of Ferlmann gives the Buckeyes three long snappers on their 2023 roster along with Arnold and fellow walk-on Max Lomonico. All three of them will be redshirt sophomores with three remaining years of eligibility next season.

    • Fleming on Ferlmann: "He's done a great job coming in and working really hard. He put his head down and got to work. He's got some game experience under his belt, playing last year – different school, but he did a really nice job there. We're looking forward to the season getting started."

    • On coming to Ohio State: “It was pretty fast. I hit the portal, and the same day I get a text from coach (Parker) Fleming. We conversed back and forth, we set up a call and it moved on from there. Every knows Ohio State and what they’re about, they’re a blueblood. It’s easy to fall in love with as a recruit, especially coming from a Pac-12 school, I kind of wanted to go play competitive football, especially in the Big Ten.”
    • On working with the specialists: “Jesse Mirco comes in ready to work every day, he’s a pro, just great to geet feedback from. With the other guys too, Parker Lewis and Jayden Fielding, they’re two amazing kickers. Every day, you’re with the best.”
    • On the kicker competition between Lewis and Fielding: “It’s close. Every single day they’ve definitely gotten better. It’s been a gradual increase. After the practice they had recently, it’s up in the air. I’m glad I’m not the coach.”
    • On the biggest adjustment: “The weather. The first day here I had to buy some pants, buy some sweaters. Definitely the seriousness and the reverence for the game here. There’s a punishment if you’re late. Everyone is on you and you have to do the right things. Everyone is held accountable here, and that’s something they do differently here.”
    • On Fleming’s pitch: “The pitch here was come be great. You accomplished some things at Arizona State, come build on that, come out here and play for the Buckeyes and see what happens.”
