For the second time in as many days, Ohio State has received a commitment from a five-star wide receiver as Brandon Inniss has pledged his commitment to the Buckeyes one day after Carnell Tate did the same.
Inniss (6-0 190) attends American Heritage High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and is ranked the No. 2 receiver in the nation and No. 18 prospect in the 2023 class overall.
Back in August of last year, Inniss committed to Oklahoma. Following the departure of Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley to USC, however, Inniss decommitted from Oklahoma and opened his recruitment back up.
Inniss took a spring unofficial visit to USC, as well as official visits to both Alabama and Ohio State this month. In fact, his OSU visit took place this weekend and was enough to convince him that he wanted to be a Buckeye.
Inniss spent much of his junior season last year playing quarterback due to an injury to American Heritage’s original starting quarterback. Inniss has also been a star on the annual summer 7-on-7 circuit for his South Florida Express team.
The Buckeyes now have three receivers committed in the 2023 class. Inniss joins five-star prospect Carnell Tate, who is the No. 3 receiver in the class and the No. 28 player nationally, and four-star receiver Bryson Rodgers, who is the No. 32 player at his position and No. 270 player in the class overall.
Ohio State receivers coach Brian Hartline has signed four five-star receivers since he was hired in 2018. Inniss and Tate could increase that number to six. Overall, Hartline has signed or received commitments from 16 receivers since 2019, and 13 of them have been ranked in the Top 100 players overall.
The Buckeyes are not yet done, however, as they will look to likely add one more receiver to the 2023 class.
