Ohio State offers one of the best 2026 quarterbacks in the country

It’s a pretty easy sell for Ohio State and Ryan Day when recruiting a quarterback. Just look at the recent history. When Day took over as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach under Urban Meyer, he inherited Joe Thomas Barrett, who would only go on to set multiple Big Ten records.

His next three quarterbacks were (Dwayne Haskins (R.I.P.), Justin Fields and C.J. Stroud). All were or will be first-round NFL Draft picks.

Day has an impressive résumé when it comes to the development of the most important player on the field.

The Buckeyes are in search of a 2024 and 2025 quarterback, but that isn’t stopping them from looking for one in the 2026 class either. They offered Julian Lewis a scholarship.

The Georgian already has an impressive offer list that includes Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas and now Ohio State. The 6-foot, 1-inch, 175-pound quarterback is just a freshman, but obviously has shown he has what it takes to be a high-level player.
