When I headed out on Friday night to check out some high school football action in central Ohio, I didn’t know what a treat I was in for.

A few hours and 6 touchdowns later and it was easy to conclude that Ohio State’s 13th commitment is another highly underrated 3-star steal for the Buckeyes.

I am, of course, talking about New Albany athlete Darron Lee, who I went to see play this past Friday against Olentangy Orange.

When Lee committed at the end of June the speculation was that he showed at camp that he could play LB at the next level.

Most people think that is where he was offered at and where he committed to play in Columbus.

On offense, Lee went  3-6 throwing for 93 yards and 2 TDs- he won’t be playing QB at Ohio State.

Outside of his throwing, though, he showed the ability to allude defenders with the ball in his hands as a runner.

Lee rushed for 136 yards and 4 TDs on 9 carries. Those are some impressive numbers for a someone expected to play defense at the next level.

He also lined up as punt returner which adds to his versatility as an offensive weapon. Read More
