    COMMITMENT COMING?
    We’ll begin with a bit of immediate news.

    Ohio State offensive line target George Fitzpatrick announced Thursday that he plans to announce his college decision on Friday afternoon.

    That’s 4:30 p.m. ET, saved you a Google search.

    The Buckeyes have plenty of reason to be optimistic about their chances of landing the 6-foot-6, 285-pound four-star Cherry Creek High School (Greenwood Village, CO.) offensive tackle. A few of his potential future teammates hinted Thursday that another #BOOM is on the way.

    Should Fitzpatrick commit to OSU, he’ll be the second offensive lineman to give a verbal to the Buckeyes in the class, joining four-star product Tegra Tshabola.

    At 4:30 p.m., he watched his son, four-star offensive lineman George Fitzpatrick, become the 17th commit for Ohio State’s recruiting class of 2022.

    “It was a great day, for sure,” the elder Fitzpatrick told Eleven Warriors shortly after his son’s announcement.

    Mark said the pair did a self-guided tour in February before the recruiting dead period was officially lifted in June, leading George to fall in love with the campus. Both of them returned to Columbus for an official visit on June 4. They did their due diligence and continued to visit more campuses through the end of the month, but Ohio State stayed at the forefront in George’s mind.

    “I don’t think he could have made a better choice,” Mark said. “Ohio State is a great destination. He picked the right place, he’ll have a chance to compete for a national championship and have a role on a successful team.”

    The 6-foot-6, 285-pound tackle became the second offensive lineman to give a verbal commitment for the 2022 class, joining four-star product Tegra Tshabola. Living in Englewood, Colorado, the Fitzpatricks resided in Pac-12 country, which is the conference George grew up watching. Nevertheless, the opportunities Ohio State offered overcame the allure of staying close to home and playing for the likes of Oregon or other West Coast schools. He quickly developed a close relationship with OSU offensive line coach Greg Studrawa and running backs coach Tony Alford.

    “The coaches, the continuity and the winning tradition,” Fitzpatrick said of why his son chose to play for the Buckeyes. “They have everything he wants.”

    FITZPATRICK WINS THIRD STATE TITLE
    Winning is becoming all too common for 2022 four-star Ohio State offensive lineman commitment George Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick helped Cherry Creek High School (Greenwood Village, Colorado) win its third straight state championship last week, defeating Valor Christian, 21-0. The victory marked the 12th title in school history.

    “It’s incredible. This feeling is unmatchable,” Fitzpatrick told the Colorado High School Activities Association after the win. “I’m just so proud of my guys. They played so hard. Everyone did their job. We worked so hard this summer and this week in preparation. It’s just a dream come true and I couldn’t be happier.”

    Over the last three seasons, Fitzpatrick helped his team to a 35-2 record. Cherry Creek finished the season 12-2 and went undefeated in the previous two seasons.
