Jack Sawyer Has the Athleticism, Power and Skill to Be Ohio State's Next Great Defensive End

As we approach the one-year anniversary of 2021 five-star defensive end Jack Sawyer's commitment to Ohio State, it is only right that we break down what makes him so special. Sawyer was the Buckeye's first commitment in the 2021 class and is one of the highest-rated recruits ever to commit to Ohio State.

Sawyer has prototypical measurables for an edge rusher at 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds, then you throw in the freakish athleticism that allows him to dunk a basketball with ease and chase down just about any high school running back.

What truly makes him a five-star, however, is what he can do on the field with his quick get-off at the line, absolute man strength when he makes contact and relentless effort between the lines.
