    Defensive lineman Jason Moore was an important get for the Scarlet and Gray out of Hyattsville, Maryland's DeMatha Catholic High School. The country's No. 8 defensive lineman, who is also a top-70 overall prospect, committed to Ohio State on June 10, 2022.

    A two-sport athlete, who also played basketball for DeMatha Catholic, Moore will work to be in Larry Johnson's rotation on the defensive line

    Scout's take: Ideal frame with length. Already has mass and can easily add size and strength to play inside on line of scrimmage. Dual sport athlete played basketball until junior season but stopped to concentrate on football. Saw Moore play early in 2021 season. Toughness factor in place after hobbling through game following first-quarter ankle roll. Strong at point of attack. Can anchor, stack and shed. Locates ball carrier well. Showed improved get-off and explosion at snap early in junior season. Is powerful and can sink hips to explode up and into offensive lineman. Shows ability to collapse pocket. Does not get frustrated and keeps working hard against double teams. Has lower body flexibility to dip his shoulder and get around edge and explode into backfield. Improved ability to chase down the line of scrimmage in offseason and his change of direction got better but has to continue to develop. Has to continue to evolve his technique, which should take place given full-time commitment to football. Relies heavily on strength and lower body power to push back offensive lineman. Has to work on hand quickness and ability to disengage. Must develop move sets to counter when initial move does not work. Multi-year starter at high-level college program. First day NFL draft potential. - 247Sports National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn

    • On freshman defensive lineman Jason Moore, Johnson says “I like Jason, I think Jason’s got a good chance. He’s a real quiet storm, I call him, he doesn’t talk much very much but he works very hard, looks good.”

    • On what he’s done to earn the praise of Larry Johnson: “Just coming in every day, just ready to work as hard as I can to make myself better, make my teammates better, our O-line better and just doing extra things on the side too.”
    • While there’s “a lot more work that needs to be done,” Moore is happy to see the time that he’s put in start to bear results. “It just makes me feel great to see that it’s started to pay off a little bit.”
    • On why he’s such a natural fit at three-technique defensive tackle, where Johnson said he’s an “ideal” player for Ohio State: “Of course my size is a factor. My length – it’s kind of unreal to see a guy my size at three-tech, especially my arm length. There’s so many tools that you can (use) to be the best person on the field.”
    • On why having such a long wingspan is an advantage: “Just coming off the ball, being able to create space, make that penetration. Being able to build off of that, so many different moves, different skills you can do. It’s kinda unreal.”
    • On Ohio State’s spring game being on FOX: “Going on national television for a spring game, I’ve never heard of that before. That’s a new thing. That definitely shows the brand that we have here, it’s different than a lot of other schools in the country.”
    • Moore said that he thought he’d play defensive end at the next level during high school, but in his recruitment Johnson started steering him toward defensive tackle. “He was right.”
    • Moore said that, though he’s added weight, he feels more athletic, too. “I feel like I’m moving way faster, quicker and more explosive than I ever was.”
    • On adjusting to the collegiate level as a freshman: “Getting all those reps in practice, scout team, I’m going against the starters every day. That just kind of opened my eyes, this is what everybody goes through, growing pains. I have to really make an adjustment if I want to play more.”
    • On the importance of he and Ohio State’s other depth defensive tackles stepping up this season: “It’s definitely important. We have our top four guys, they came in and solidified what they can do. ... Our goal is to beat the Team Up North, win a championship, we can’t do it just with them. We need guys to come in, get them subs when they need it so they can be the best when they’re on the field. And for us to be able to come in and help the team, that’s very needed for what our goals are.”
