Ohio State loses out on four-star lineman to Tennessee

·1 min read

On Monday, Ohio State lost out on the No. 3 rated offensive lineman in the country, Addison Nichols. There had been some thought that a late push by the Buckeyes could sway the Georgia native to land in Columbus, but ultimately the close family ties kept him close to home.

Nichols announced his decision to attend the University of Tennessee and play for the Vols. Nichols grew up visiting his grandparents in Knoxville and his mother attended Tennessee as well. In his younger days, Nichols made it known he didn’t want to go where mom went, but eventually warmed up to the idea.

Nichols picked the Volunteers over Ohio State and North Carolina live on CBSHQ.

The Buckeyes still have their eyes set on several highly touted offensive lineman in the 2022 class including, Kam Dewberry and the No. 1 overall tackle in the country Zach Rice.
