The Bobcats had a huge weekend on the recruiting trail. Ohio added three linebackers this past weekend alone to their 2016 class. On Saturday, Jared Dorsa announced his commitment to the Bobcats on Twitter. The Kings Mill, Ohio native allegedly held offers from Air Force and Eastern Michigan, but said that once he visited Ohio University, he knew it's where he wants to be.

Hustle Belt was able to reach Jared Dorsa to discuss why Ohio was the right fit for him.
"I would say definitely the atmosphere made you feel comfortable and the campus was amazing. When I walked into the weight room, I had multiple players come up to me and introduce themselves without being prompted."
Dorsa will join a few familiar faces at Ohio. The 6-foot-2 220 pound linebacker used to train with 2015 commit Mayne Williams at Ignition APG. Dorsa will also join high school rival linebacker Eric Popp, who just recently joined the Bobcats' 2016 class. Ohio is looking to this group of Bobcats in the future to help secure and anchor down their defense.
The Kings High School junior also discussed some personal and team goals that he hopes to accomplish in his time at Ohio. "Personally, I want to be a great leader as soon as possible and help the team in any way I can," Dorsa toldHustle Belt. "As a team, I want to win the MAC and make a bowl game every year."
