Ohio State Lands 1st Post Tressel Resignation Recruit: Tyvis Powell


Ohio State basketball

Life does go on in Columbus after all. Buckeyes people finally got some good news amidst the crisis:

Ohio State has landed verbal commitment No. 8 for the class of 2011 yesterday as defensive back Tyvis Powell has joined the program. At a press conference at his high school of Bedford, Ohio, the three-star safety prospect announced his verbal commitment to Ohio State eight days after landing a scholarship offer from his dream school. In the process, he becomes the eighth member of the class and the first one to join since head coach Jim Tressel resigned Monday morning.

Powell is a tall corner, 6’4” 180 lbs, and has excellent coverage abilities. This is a defensive back coaches dream player as he comes in with a lot of excitement. This is also Luke Fickell’s first recruit since the Tressel resigning. This is a great pick up for Fickell and the rest of Buckeye Nation because we can tell already that Powell fit in just right. A huge hump, as well, to get over the Tressel retiring because recruiting will now start to become a bit of an issue. Players might be thinking about stability of coaches, and how good the team can actually even be.

“I’m ready to be a Buckeye and won’t let you down. We’re going to have some fun and I’m going to give you your money’s worth! Get the popcorn ready.”
– Tyvis Powell, 8th verbal in the 2012 class
