Before last December, Ohio State had not signed two tight ends in a recruiting class since 2016. In his second year as the Buckeyes’ tight ends coach, Keenan Bailey has now secured the team’s second straight multiple-tight end class with the commitment of three-star Ohio prospect Brody Lennon on Thursday.

Lennon earned his offer from Ohio State on June 13 after an impressive performance at their recruiting camp. This offer was very meaningful for the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Lennon, who, like many Ohio prospects, was a huge Buckeyes fan growing up.

“It felt amazing. I always grew up an OSU fan and my dad went there. Coach Bailey thought I had a good camp, and I already had a workout with him in May, so this was more for the other coaches to see me.”

Before receiving the offer from Ohio State, Lennon had a strong relationship with Kentucky and was considering playing there. However, the chance to join OSU was too good to pass up. He also visited Missouri and Wisconsin over the summer.

With Lennon’s commitment, Ohio State now has 20 commitments in the 2025 class, including two tight ends. Lennon joins four-star Oklahoma prospect Nate Roberts. The two bonded during their official visit to Columbus and hope to make an impact at OSU.

According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, Lennon is the No. 608 overall prospect and the No. 30 tight end in the 2025 cycle.

Lennon has a proven track record as a successful receiver for his high school team. In his junior season at Gilmour Academy in Gates Mills, Ohio, he caught 32 passes for 750 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. He also played as a defensive end, making 95 tackles, 13 sacks, and 30 tackles for loss.

Lennon is already a strong receiver, but his build also makes him a good blocker. He plays both as a wide receiver and a tight end in his high school, giving him experience in different roles. His speed is impressive for his size, and he made several big plays in 2023.

Lennon will likely need a few years to develop before he plays regularly, but his versatile skills make him a valuable prospect for the Buckeyes.
