Another BOOM for the Ohio State football team as 2024 Four-Star Tight End Max Leblanc Commits to the Buckeyes.
The Ohio State football team continues its hot streak on the recruiting trail as Four-star Tight End Max LeBlanc from Tennessee commits to the Buckeyes. LeBlanc is Coach Keenan Bailey’s Top choice on the board and a significant addition to the offense in a unit that Ryan Day continues to grow in his system.

LeBlanc stands 6’3 ½ and weighs in at a solid 222 pounds with excellent downfield ability. The Tennessee product will be used in space more than he will as an auxiliary lineman, as he’s more of a pass catcher. However, he does have a solid pass-blocking and run-blocking Foundation that will give him great versatility.
LeBlanc is originally from Canada but decided to move South to attend Baylor School in Tennessee to improve his game, and he has done exactly that. He broke out during his junior season and became a national name the Buckeyes are fortunate to land. The Ohio State commit caught 39 passes for 695 yards and three touchdowns en route to winning a state championship last season.
Keenan Bailey earned his way to his role by taking over the TE group following Kevin Wilson’s departure. The tight end is a precise route runner with reliable hands and elite athleticism to corral the 50/50 balls and make plays in space. It’s clear he hit the ground running by landing LeBlanc.
