Four-star 2025 wide receiver Quincy Porter committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes on Friday, becoming the latest highly regarded player to join the team.

Porter had originally planned to announce his commitment on July 14 but decided earlier after a successful visit to Ohio State. He canceled his scheduled visit to Michigan after the Ohio State visit, where coach Brian Hartline made it clear how much the Buckeyes wanted him. Besides Michigan, Ohio State also beat Penn State in securing Porter’s commitment.

Porter has been a key target for Hartline since January 2023 when Ohio State offered him a spot. He visited the campus several times and chose the Buckeyes because of their strong track record in developing wide receivers and the chance to compete for national championships.

With Porter’s commitment, Ohio State now has 15 recruits for 2025, including two wide receivers. Porter joins De’zie Jones, another New Jersey player. Ohio State is still aiming to add one or two more wide receivers to the class, with targets including Dakorien Moore, Daylan McCutcheon, Phillip Bell, Vernell Brown III, and Jaime Ffrench Jr.

According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, Porter is the No. 49 prospect and the No. 8 wide receiver in the 2025 class. He is also the top-ranked player in New Jersey. Porter’s commitment strengthens Ohio State’s position as the No. 1 overall recruiting class according to 247Sports.

Standing at 6-foot-3 and weighing 190 pounds, Porter is expected to excel as an outside receiver in Ohio State’s offense. Last season at Bergen Catholic, he had 41 catches for 969 yards and 16 touchdowns. As a sophomore, he had 35 catches for 686 yards and 11 touchdowns and also played defensive back.

Porter’s size makes him a reliable red zone target, often winning jump ball battles, even in double coverage. His frame creates tough matchups for smaller defensive backs. He is a smooth route runner, good at breaking tackles, and gaining extra yards after the catch.

Porter’s skill set is not limited to short routes; he also excels at deep routes, consistently beating defensive backs. While primarily an outside receiver in high school, Porter has occasionally played in the slot to exploit matchup advantages.
