Tavien St. Clair shined brightly for the second day in a row at Ohio State.

After an impressive performance at Ohio State’s third skill camp of the summer on Tuesday, the five-star quarterback returned to compete in the Buckeyes’ first 7-on-7 tournament of the month.

St. Clair couldn’t attend next week’s 7-on-7 tournament with his Bellefontaine High School team because he’ll be at the Elite 11 Finals. So, he played for Ohio State’s house team, which included players from various high schools. Even though he wasn’t used to his receivers, St. Clair was the standout quarterback, leading his team to a couple of easy wins before losing to Minster in the quarterfinals.

In three games on Wednesday, St. Clair completed 15 of 23 passes for eight touchdowns, with only one interception. Four of his incomplete passes were drops, and he drew two defensive pass interference penalties on deep throws.

Standing tall at 6-foot-4 and weighing 225 pounds, St. Clair has risen in the ranks over the past year. He’s now the No. 2 prospect in the class of 2025 according to 247Sports.

As a freshman at Bellefontaine High School, St. Clair was 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds with no scholarship offers or major college interest. He had to fight for the starting quarterback job and managed to secure it halfway through the season, finishing strong.

Over the next year, St. Clair gained 30 pounds and received offers from Florida and Tennessee, among others, but not from Ohio State. The Buckeyes wanted to keep evaluating him and build a relationship. Then St. Clair grew another two inches and gained 30 more pounds. Before his junior season, he camped at Alabama, Mississippi State, and LSU, where he could have committed on the spot.

However, not having an offer from Ohio State was always in the back of his mind. Eventually, Ohio State offered him a scholarship. After a couple of visits to Columbus, he verbally committed to the Buckeyes. Now, he is a key part of the 2025 class, which is currently ranked first overall.
