Texas 5-star defensive lineman set to make his choice with Ohio State in the running

Ohio State Football is not done recruiting 2024 defensive ends even though they received a commitment from Georgia five-star Eddrick Houston about a week ago.

One of their remaining targets is Texas native Dominick McKinley, who took an official visit to Columbus in early June. The 6-foot, 5-inch, 290-pound lineman plans to announce his commitment on Friday, picking from five schools: Oklahoma, Texas A&M, LSU, Texas and Ohio State.

McKinley is the No. 7 prospect at his position and 38th player nationally according to the 247Sports composite. It’s tough to know who he is leaning toward at the moment; the lone crystal ball pick is for the Longhorns.

Aside from Houston, the Buckeyes also have Justin Scott as a commitment on the defensive line, but would like to add at least one, possibly two more at the position.
