The Bobcats have been very active on the recruiting trail and have not shown any signs of slowing down. Ohio landed a commitment from offensive lineman Adam Notestine on Sunday, per numerous sources. He reportedly held an offer from Ball State along with an unofficial offer from Eastern Michigan. According to 247 sports, Notestine is listed as a two-star prospect.
The 6-foot-4 320 pound lineman was kind enough to explain to Hustle Belt why Ohio was the right destination for him. "The proximity from my family is great, only about 50 minutes away, and the coaching staff blew me away with their knowledge and character."
Notestine is from Pickerington, Ohio and attends Pickerington North High School. Ohio will look to keep up the solid offensive line that they currently have. After giving up only 23 sacks in 12 games in 2014, the Bobcats coaching staff will look to Notestine and fellow 2016 offensive lineman commit Haydn Lewis to maintain or lower that number. When asked about his future goals at Ohio, Notestine told Hustle Belt, "(I would like) to become the best football player I can be, and continue the Bobcats' success on and off the field."
