Ohio State offers Josh Falo, No. 4 TE in class of 2017
The No. 4 tight end in the nation received a scholarship offer from Ohio State Wednesday morning, which could bolster their already top recruiting class.
Josh Falo, a 6 foot 5, 235 pound class of 2017 four star tight end, announced OSU offered him a scholarship on Twitter.

If he commits, Falo, a Sacramento, California native, would join a Buckeye tight end corps which would consist of Kierre Hawkins, Luke Farrell and Jake Hausmann. All three are currently freshmen, and are former four-star signings in the class of 2016.
However, Falo is listed as a Tight End-H on ESPN’s recruiting network, as opposed to Farrell and Hausmann’s tight end-Y listing, meaning Falo could also see time in the backfield as the main blocker for Buckeye running backs.
Here’s a highlight video from Falo’s junior season, where Falo, who also doubles as his high school’s punter, takes a botched snap and runs for an enormous gain. That’s some versatility.
The offer gives potential for a diverse, yet athletic tight end squad for Ohio State in 2017, should Falo commit.
