Recently, the Buckeyes hosted four-star safety Peyton Woodyard on an unofficial visit which caught the eye of a lot of recruiting fanatics. Woodyard has been solidly committed to Georgia for quite a while but has now scheduled an official visit to Ohio State on June 16th, per his Twitter.

The Athens native has been committed to Georgia since January 7th, 2o23. On April 12th, Woodyard made a surprise visit to Ohio State and then went to Alabama the following day. He would subsequently visit Georgia for their G-Day. Speaking of Georgia, Woodyard is slated to be back in Athens on June 2nd. The Buckeyes are not backing down and definitely have a chance at Woodyard.
Georgia native, five-star safety KJ Bolden’s recruitment is also a factor relating to Woodyard. There is a belief Bolden is leaning towards staying home in the state of Georgia, meaning Woodyard could look elsewhere to earn an opportunity to get on the field quickly. Woodyard was a huge part of St. John Bosco’s defense last season and will look to the same this season. Woodyard also plays with Buckeye target and four-star linebacker Kyngston Villamu-Asa, who will take an Official Visit to Columbus on June 23rd. Woodyard is ranked the #106 National recruit, #8 Safety and #14 in California.
