Illinois 2025 4-star linebacker is offered by Ohio State

One of the most talent-rich states in the Midwest is Illinois, and Ohio State has once again gone into the Land of Lincoln to offer one of its top prospects.

Christian Pierce, a 2025 linebacker, was offered a scholarship by the Buckeyes on Wednesday. The 6-foot, 210-pound player is ranked 31st at his position and 277th overall on the 247Sports composite.

Multiple Big Ten teams have offered Pierce, and many more offers will flow in now that the Buckeyes have entered the picture. At the moment, just one commit is in the 2025 Ohio State recruiting class, cornerback Jontae Gilbert.
