Ohio State's top tight end target in the 2018 class for more than a year now has been Lindenhurst (NY) product Jeremy Ruckert. The 6-foot-6, 225-pound prospect recently narrowed his list to just four schools, Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Wisconsin and on Friday evening he took to Twitter to announce when he will make his decision between those programs.
The four-star tight end will make his choice known on July 17th.

Ruckert has kept a tight lid on his recruitment in recent months, however several sources believe Ohio State has been in the driver's seat for some time now. Ruckert has been new offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson's top priority since arriving in Columbus.
