How Ohio State pledges fared

By Brad Bournival

Ezekiel Elliott (St. Louis/John Burroughs) might not have gotten the result he wanted, but the ESPN 150 running back left his mark on Missouri high school football.

In the Class 3 state championship game, Elliott scored 3 touchdowns and had a tournament-record 419 all-purpose yards in a 35-22 loss to Maryville.

He finished his career with 100 touchdowns.

Here’s how the other 16 Ohio State commits fared in high school action:

J.T. Barrett: Rider (Texas) quarterback is out for season with torn ACL and meniscus. His squad beat Southwest 31-21 in the Class 4A Division II playoffs.

Joey Bosa: St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.) defensive tackle recorded safety in 38-7 Class 7A Regional semifinal win over Plantation.

Cam Burrows: Trotwood-Madison (Ohio) cornerback recorded tackle and held New Albany to 51 yards passing in 33-32 Division II state semifinal win.

Tim Gardner: Lawrence Central (Ind.) offensive tackle helped Isaiah Townsend rush for 193 yards and 2 touchdowns and helped Drake Christen churn out 320 all-purpose yards in Class 5A state title win over Snider.

Darron Lee: New Albany (Ohio) safety recorded interception, rushed for 41 yards and passed for 51 yards with touchdown in 33-32 loss to Trotwood-Madison.

Tyquan Lewis: Tarboro (N.C.) defensive end/linebacker held South Columbus scoreless in Class 2A state semifinal.

Jayme Thompson: Toledo Central Catholic (Ohio) safety held Aurora to 132 yards passing in 20-13 Division II state semifinal.

Eli Woodard: Eastern (N.J.) cornerback on playoff bye.

Marcus Baugh, Michael Hill, Evan Lisle, Taivon Jacobs, Jalin Marshall, Billy Price, Tracy Sprinkle and Johnny Townsend have concluded their seasons.
