COLUMBUS — Ohio State isn’t losing any steam as the best program for recruiting top wide receiver talent: Brandon Inniss committed to the Buckeyes on Tuesday.

The five-star American Heritage (Miami Gardens, Florida) product picked the Buckeyes over USC, Miami, Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma and nearly every other school in the country trying to get his pledge.

Brandon Inniss is now the second-highest ranked commit in the Ohio State recruiting class. He is the third receiver in the Buckeyes 2023 class, joining four-star Florida native Bryson Rodgers and five-star Florida native Carnell Tate, who committed Monday. The pair of talented pass catchers give Ohio State 12 commitments in their Big Ten-best class so far.

The 5-foot-11.5-inch, 189 pound Inniss has been considered a lean to the Buckeyes for the last month, even after an official visit to Alabama at the beginning of June, leading up to his official visit this weekend, and that visit certainly helped Brian Hartline and Ohio State seal the deal with the No. 22 player in the On3 consensus rankings. The On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine gave the Buckeyes a 70.8-percent chance to land his commitment before he announced it.

The official visit over the weekend wasn’t just for Brandon Inniss to come to Ohio State and make sure he wanted to be a part of the Buckeyes program. It was also for his family to see it, too.

“This visit is for me, but it’s not really for me,” Inniss told On3’s Chad Simmons last week. “It’s really for my dad because he hasn’t been there yet. It’s a family decision so he wants to see how it is compared to other schools.

“… I can come in, I can develop under coach Hartline and I can get ready for the NFL in three years.”

Now that the visit to Ohio State is over, Brandon Inniss made his decision public after an eye-opening trip to Columbus. He has decided to join the Buckeyes class, giving Brian Hartline yet another win on the recruiting trail for a five-star talent.
