The Ohio State football program is one of the very best in the nation. They haven't had the on-field results that they have hoped for in recent seasons, but a couple of good recruiting classes can change that in a hurry. That could be the case with the 2025 class as the Buckeyes recently received a commitment from an elite offensive weapon.

According to Hayes Fawcett of On3, the elite wide receiver prospect Quincy Porter has committed to Ohio State.

Porter will not be taking any more official visits. He chose the Buckeyes over other top programs including Michigan, Penn State, and Alabama. He had an official visit schedule with Michigan later this weekend, which he will no longer attend. Porter has officially shut down his recruitment.

Porter is a 6'4″ 205lb receiver out of Oradell, New Jersey. On3 has him ranked as a top 32 recruit in the 2025 recruiting class.

“The wide receiver play that they have at Ohio State,” Porter said when asked what stood out about the Buckeyes. “Ohio State is Wide Receiver U.”

He added that his relationship with the coaching staff and their plan for him also played a role in his decision.

“I’m close with (Brian) Hartline,” Porter said. “I had great conversations with him, which ultimately made me commit.”

Brian Hartline played wide receiver at Ohio State and is now the team's wide receivers coach. He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in 2009 and had a solid NFL career.

“Ultimately Ohio State has done it the best when it comes to receivers,” Porter said.

Ohio State will have to fight to retain 5-star recruit in the 2026 recruiting class

The Buckeyes have gotten off to an early start on the 2026 recruiting class. Ohio State received a commitment from wide receiver Chris Henry Jr., though the team recently learned that he may be exploring other options.

“Five-star WR Chris Henry Jr. says Ohio State has ‘everything I want,'” Sam Spiegelman said in a tweet. “Henry talks the latest with the Buckeyes and upcoming summer visits to LSU and Oregon.”

This is not entirely uncommon in the college football landscape. Chris Henry Jr. made his early commitment back in July 2023. The 2024 recruitment cycle was in full swing at the time and he is part of the 2026 class. Therefore, he has plenty of time to consider other options.

“I just felt like I was ready,” Henry said shortly after committing, according to an article from ESPN. “I was just tired of waiting; I already knew where I wanted to go. So when I went back there, it just already felt like home, and I already felt like this is where I wanted to be.”

While he may have a good deal of time to change his mind, it is definitely a good thing to have an early commitment from Henry Jr. Ohio State's reputation as “wide receiver U” certainly helps too.

According to 247 Sports, Chris Henry Jr. is the top player in the 2026 recruitment class. He is a five-star recruit who is the top player in the nation overall and at wide receiver.

He currently plays high school football at powerhouse Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California.
