SAN ANTONIO – Practice got underway at the All-American Bowl where many of the nation’s top high school players will get to put on the uniform one final time as high schoolers before going off to their college destinations, either in January or June.
Ohio State is well-represented with many commits and several targets still on the board as part of the game. One of those signed players is wide receiver Kojo Antwi, a receiver out of the state of Georgia.
Antwi is part of a four-man class at the position, joining Kaleb Brown, Kyion Grayes and Caleb Burton. This week in Texas will be a chance to get to know several of his new teammates and show the world one more time why he is one of the tops at his position.
“I am ready to get to work and get to Columbus,” Antwi said. Antwi will be a summer enrollee at Ohio State, not taking the early enrollment path that several others will.
Ohio State was very much in the news with its recent Rose Bowl win over Utah, a game where the offensive carried the water, especially the passing game.
“They looked explosive,” Antwi added. “We definitely have got unfinished business and they know what the deal is, I don’t have to say too much.”
Slot receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba had himself a record-setting day as he went crazy for more than 300 receiving yards, 15 catches and three touchdowns in Ohio State’s 48-45 win. Antwi already had a great relationship with JSN and looks forward to learning alongside the talented receiver who will be going into his third (and likely final) season with the Buckeyes in 2022.
“When I was on my visits, me and (Jaxon) were tight,” Antwi said. “We already have that kind of connection. Just watching him reciprocate and do what he does on the field, it is going to be nice to learn from him.”
Ohio State could be off to another great recruiting season for 2023 with several key targets looking strongly at Ohio State. Antwi credits Ohio State wide receiver coach Brian Hartline for so much as the Buckeyes really can lay claim to being the current WRU out there in college football.
“It is Zone-6,” Antwi said. “(Hartline) is a genuine guy, great guy. He knows a lot about football. You can to him about anything, he understands, understands he players and that is what I like about him.”
Part of the week in Texas will also be spent recruiting and Antwi is in the ear of at least one of Ohio State’s targets.
“I am with Christen (Miller) all the time; he knows the deal. He has got some OSU shorts on right now, he knows the deal,” Antwi joked.
He did admit that Miller may enjoy the recruiting process a little too much but feels confident that the Buckeyes can land him.
