COLUMBUS — Five-star 2023 safety Sonny Styles was back at Ohio State on Wednesday, working out for the Buckeye coaches just days after a visit to Notre Dame. It was the third time he’s been at an OSU camp this month and the second time working out for the Ohio State staff. Previously he had worked out for defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs, doing some defensive back drills. On Wednesday, however, he was working out with linebackers coach Al Washington, as well as defensive line coach Larry Johnson.

Standing around 6-foot-4, it’s very unlikely that Styles stays in the secondary in college. Schools like Ohio State and Notre Dame are recruiting him to play their hybrid safety/linebacker role, which would seem to suit his size and skill set perfectly. He currently holds offers from both schools, as well as Clemson, Florida, Texas, LSU, and others.

Given his size, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that Larry Johnson spent some time on Wednesday with Styles working on his pass rushing. This is something that Johnson does with his defensive linemen and the linebackers. He has also been known to do it with defensive backs as well.

Following his workout, Styles spoke with reporters about why he was back at Ohio State, what he likes about Notre Dame, and when a decision might ultimately happen.
