Coveted defensive line recruit Haskell Garrett announced Tuesday that he's going to play college football at Ohio State: 

Garrett is a 4-star prospect who rates as the No. 78 overall player in the 2017 class, according to 247Sports' composite rankings. He also checks in as the No. 4 defensive tackle and No. 3 recruit from Nevada.

The Bishop Gorman High School star has displayed an impressive combination of skills wrapped into an athletic frame (6'2", 280 lbs). He's established himself as a force against the run and a consistent pass-rushing threat.

It's raised questions about what role he'll fill at the college level. Steve Hare of Scout passed along comments from the versatile tackle back in December about what teams have told him.

"There's a lot that are recruiting me as a defensive tackle or defensive end," Garrett said. "I think most people are recruiting me as a 3-technique."

All told, Garrett is a prospect with a lot of potential. His technique still needs quite a bit of polish, and the transition to college is going to take some time after he simply overpowered a lot of linemen at the high school level. But the long-term outlook is extremely positive.

Adding him to the equation certainly provides a nice boost to the 2017 class.
