COLUMBUS, Ohio—The Ohio State University Men’s Golf program added five new players to its ranks on Wednesday, supplying the squad with great new talent for years to come.

“This signing class represents five outstanding young men who are prepared and ready to continue the great tradition of Buckeye Golf.  Jackson and Caleb are two local prospects who have flourished throughout junior golf at every level and they understand the history of Ohio State Golf and the rich tradition of Buckeye Nation.  Jake is an accomplished tennis player from Indiana who has excelled on the golf course throughout high school and is a great compliment to our class.  Patrick has had great success across Europe competing on numerous occasions with Europe’s very best players and will be an exceptional student-athlete for us.  As a graduate transfer, Felix will provide us with an additional upperclassman who has already been a part of a national championship team.  Collectively this group has incredible potential to achieve great success and we are excited to have them arrive in Columbus next season.”
