SAN ANTONIO – At the All-American Game week of practices it is easy to find Ohio State commits and targets with multiple players on the East and West squads.
While they will have to play one game against each other, they are using this time as an opporuntity to bond in person well in advance of making their way to Columbus to start their collegiate careers. For some that move will be sooner than others as some players will enroll this month and others won’t make it until Sunday.
Chandler (Ariz.) wide receiver Kyion Grayes is part of the West team for this game but has been very close with East wideout Kojo Antwi. The two spent parts of Wednesday jumping into each other’s interviews with the visiting media and for us, where Grayes was, there was Antwi as well.
“We have been together almost every day,” Grayes said. “All of the commits, all the time. It could be morning, night, it does not matter. We are building our brotherhood and we all get along like family.”
There is no position that gets more notice at Ohio State currently than the wide receiver position on the heels of the Rose Bowl game.
For young receivers like Antwi and Grayes, the opportunity is real, just as much as the excitement to be able to write their own pages in the Ohio State history books.
“Just watching how home (Jaxon Smith-Njigba) and Marvin Harrison were every play and the amount of separation that they created,” Grayes said. “Coach Hart, coach Day, they all do a fantastic job of coaching up players and putting them in the right position. For a receiver, that is like heaven.”
The future is bright in Columbus, that is for certain. Check out the video for more from the pair of talented wideouts plus a visit from another Ohio State signee.
