Ohio State has received a verbal commitment from four-star receiver Noah Rogers out of Rolesville High School in Rolesville, North Carolina. He is the third Top 50 receiver to commit to the Buckeyes in as many days.
Ranked the No. 9 receiver in the 2023 class and the No. 50 player overall in the 247Sports Composite, Rogers committed to OSU over offers from North Carolina State, Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Michigan, and a dozen others.
Rogers was scheduled to take an official visit to Columbus the weekend of June 17 prior to his commitment, but his flight had to be canceled. Regardless, he had been thinking of the Buckeyes long prior to his visit.
“I like what they have got going on,” Rogers told Buckeye Scoop back in May. “They play big, they play fast, and they play the best. And I like playing against great competition and playing with a great group of receivers.”
A First-Team All-State selection in 2021, Rogers caught 70 passes for 1,432 yards and 22 touchdowns as a junior.
Rogers’ commitment gives the Buckeyes four receivers in the 2023 class. He joins Bryson Rodgers, Carnell Tate, and Brandon Inniss. Rodgers — out of Zephyrhills, Florida — was the first to commit. He is ranked the No. 32 receiver in the nation and the No. 270 player overall. Rodgers was followed by IMG Academy Carnell Tate on June 21. Tate is a five-star prospect and the No. 3 receiver in the 2023 class. One day after Tate committed, the Buckeyes received a commitment from Inniss, who is ranked the No. 2 receiver in the 2023 class. Inniss attends American Heritage High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Barring anything unforeseen at this point, the Buckeyes would appear to be set at receiver for the 2023 class. This means that OSU receivers coach Brian Hartline can now put his focus on the 2024 class, which is exactly what the rest of the nation wanted to hear.
