Ohio State Buckeyes 2025 Tight End Talks Commitment

The Ohio State Buckeyes are currently ranked No. 1 for their 2025 recruiting class. Ryan Day and co. worked hard on it and they came out great with a load of new talent coming in next year.

One of the most recent commitments the Buckeyes received was from Brody Lennon.

Lennon, a native of Gilmour Academy in Cleveland, Ohio, opted to stay home and join Ohio State, giving the Buckeyes an intriguing weapon at tight end with tremendous upside and legitimate NFL talent.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound tight end had a strong junior high school season, collecting 32 receptions for 750 yards and 11 touchdowns. Now, he’s ready to play his final year before making the leap to the Big Ten.

Lennon took time for an exclusive interview with our very own Evan Massey following his decision to commit to Ohio State.

First, Lennon talked about his decision to commit to the Buckeyes and what the key deciding factors were for him.

“The opportunities it provides when I’m there and I’m competing at the highest level just makes me better. I also really like coach Kee. He’s a really good coach who really coaches people and cares about them too.”

If you haven’t seen him play yet, Lennon gave a brief description of what he has in store for the Buckeyes.

“Tough, physical, fast. Someone who gives the best of himself on the field, also as a TE more of a complete TE and can do a little bit of everything.”

He even offered a comparison for his play to a current NFL star.

“I would say George Kittle is the one I watch the most. I really like his game and we’re both tough and physical and can also block really well and get YAC.”

Lennon then spoke about his biggest strengths and weaknesses heading into his senior season of high school.

“My biggest strength is YAC. I feel like I do very well with the ball in my hands and am also very good at blocking. Weakness I definitely want to improve in my route running.”

During his recruiting process, Lennon’s Ohio State really stood out from the rest of the schools he was interested in. He opened up with more details about what stood out about the Buckeyes.

“Absolutely. The first thing that set them apart from other schools was the competitiveness and I mean they compete with everything there. It’s also crazy that the guys there really want to do great things and are also just great coaches, probably the best in the country. Getting recruited by OSU was absolutely crazy. I started talking to Coach Kee in February and did a workout in May but had to go back to camp to get an offer. So I did and I got an offer from them, which I actually liked better because I earned it at camp, so that felt good.”

Looking to the future, Lennon has big goals for his career at Ohio State. He explained what goals he has for the next five years.

“I see myself winning the John Mackey in that time and hopefully in the NFL or in the draft.”

There is no doubt that Lennon has the talent and potential to be a very special player for the Buckeyes. If he reaches his ceiling, the NFL is definitely within reach.

Ohio State got a good opportunity when the young tight end committed to them. He has a huge opportunity ahead of him and could become a key part of the Buckeyes’ offense as he begins his college career.
