    Everything I’ve read about this kid says that’s he very raw, yet still looks like a top 50 player. That’s scary. And he LOVES Coach Johnson and the Buckeyes.

    2. HERO KANU, DT
    The aforementioned Premier Players International group of European prospects that has made regular tour stops at Ohio State camp has typically acquitted itself well at those camps, demonstrating that there’s Division I football talent outside of the United States, too. No member of that group, though, has ever been as highly ranked as a prospect as Kanu, the No. 82 overall prospect in the 2022 class – and he made a strong case at Ohio State’s June 8 camp that he should be ranked even higher.

    Although the German-born Kanu has played only one year of high school football in the United States at California’s Santa Margarita Catholic High School, he was quite clearly the best player on the field during the morning session of Ohio State’s second camp of the month. At 6-foot-5 and 293 pounds, Kanu demonstrated five-star-caliber athleticism as he moved naturally through every drill Johnson threw his way and then dominated his one-on-one reps, even when he was matched up with Joshua Padilla, one of the top interior offensive linemen in the 2023 class.

    Kanu stood out physically as much as anyone who worked out at Ohio State this month, giving him sky-high potential as he continues to develop as a football player. His positive attitude stood out while he was at camp, too, as he consistently carried a smile on his face and encouraged the other defensive linemen to also succeed in their drills after taking his own reps.

    That smile got even bigger when he was asked after his workout how much interest he had in Ohio State, making the Buckeyes look like one of the frontrunners in his recruitment.

    “A lot,” Kanu said when asked how much interest he had in Ohio State. “Top-three team here. It’s different. For us Europeans, we don’t really know these schools like Americans do, and now that you get into football, into the academics, you’re like, ‘That might be a good opportunity.’”
