Ohio State has secured a commitment from‍ Zion Grady, who⁢ is‍ ranked ⁣66th⁤ overall and the 6th‌ edge⁣ defender in the 2025 class by 247 Sports. ⁣Grady, a 4-star prospect from Enterprise High School in Alabama, had initially committed ‌to Alabama before reopening his‍ recruitment due to ⁢Nick Saban’s retirement. His ⁣decision to join​ Ohio State adds to the impressive lineup ⁣of defensive ‍line talent recruited by Larry Johnson.

Zion Grady,⁢ known ⁤for his explosiveness, is a versatile player on the defensive⁣ line who can play various positions at ⁢the line of scrimmage. Standing at 6’4 and weighing‍ 235 pounds, Grady’s length​ and quickness aid him in creating separation when ‍rushing the quarterback. ⁣When he joins Ohio State, the Buckeyes may look for him⁤ to add more ‌weight to fit ⁣into the ​traditional defensive end role in their formation.

In his 2023 ‌season, Zion Grady⁣ showcased his abilities with 87 tackles, 24 tackles⁣ for ⁤loss,⁤ and 11 sacks. ⁤Additionally,⁢ he forced 3 ⁣turnovers with 3 forced ‌fumbles and an interception, making him one of the most ⁣productive edge rushers in his class.

Zion Grady’s commitment strengthens Ohio State’s defensive line,⁢ which is part of‌ the nation’s top-ranked recruiting class according to 247 Sports.⁣ The Buckeyes boast three 5-star, thirteen‍ 4-star, and three ‍3-star commitments,⁢ with ​three edge defenders⁢ in the ‍mix -​ Grady, Zahir Mathis, and London Merritt.
