Everyone makes mistakes. That includes Ohio State’s recruiting department.
The Buckeyes sent 4-star WR Jacob Copeland a letter, but it looks like Ohio State got Copeland’s name wrong. The letter called Copeland “Jason” instead of “Jacob.”
“Ohio State sent me some mail that say “Jason Copeland,” Copeland wrote on Twitter on Wednesday night.

Copeland is from Pensacola, Fla. and is with Pine Forest High School. According to 247 Sports’ composite rankings, Copeland is Florida’s No. 10 recruit for the 2018 class. He’s also No. 9 nationally as a wide receiver and is ranked No. 45 in the country out of all positions.
Though the incorrect name isn’t a good look, 247 Sports’ crystal ball already had Copeland predicted to remain in Florida. The Florida State Seminoles are favored to get Copeland, though Florida and Miami are Nos. 2 and 3.
Even if Copeland doesn’t end up with Ohio State, the Buckeyes should have another highly regarded recruiting class. They finished ranked No. 2 for 2017 and are currently No. 9 for 2018, behind only Penn State in the Big Ten. The projected class includes 5-star QB Emory Jones (Franklin, Ga.).
