Ohio State football recruiting can be a wild ride full of twists and turns as recruits from all over the country maneuver their way to signing day. Lettermen Row is here to help navigate the tumultuous roads by getting to the heart of the matter with the young football players and Ohio State coaches and staff members themselves. Today’s guest is 2022 receiver Kojo Antwi, a prospect who is quickly shooting up the recruiting board for the Buckeyes.
With 30 early scholarship offers from schools like Georgia, LSU, Alabama, Oregon and Notre Dame, it wasn’t a huge surprise when Ohio State offered Suwanee (Ga.) Lambert High School receiver Kojo Antwi.

It also isn’t a huge surprise that, in a very short period of time, the Buckeyes — led by receivers coach Brian Hartline — have become a school of very real interest for the 6-foot-1, 185-pound 4-star prospect.
“This offer is exciting, they are one of the best teams in the country and they produce a lot of NFL players,” Antwi told Lettermen Row when he was offered.”And it is a great academic school. They said they loved my tape a lot. I sent Coach Hartline my junior film two days ago and he said he was fired up.”
Linebacker coach Al Washington, who recruits the Atlanta area for the Buckeyes, was the first to speak to Antwi but Hartline, along with head coach Ryan Day, have picked up the pace and helped position Ohio State nicely in his recruitment moving forward.
“Ohio state is near the top of the list,” he said. “They are showing that they really want me and it means a lot.”
Buckeyes fans don’t know a lot about Kojo Antwi and he doesn’t know a whole lot about Ohio State yet, but he’s a name to know as the 2022 recruiting class unfolds. He joined Birminology to talk about his recruitment, his interest in the Buckeyes and what he’s looking for in a relationship with his future school.
