Though Ohio State is putting together an incredibly talented 2017 class, the Buckeyes are clearly thinking about 2019 as well.
On Monday, the 5-foot-11, 165-pound Jaylin Simpson tweeted he has received an offer from Ohio State. It sounds like it’s his first, too.

The WR/DB plays for Frederica Academy (St. Simons Island, Ga.). Federica opened its season with a 56-0 win against Holy Spirit Prep.
Simpson had 173 receiving yards as a freshman in 2015, but was most impressive as a DB. He intercepted four passes, returning two for TDs.
