Four Star Athlete/Dual Threat 2017 Quarterback Bruce Judson Commits to Ohio State

Bruce Judson

While the Buckeyes were winning on the field Monday night against Oregon, they were also winning pretty big off the field. They received commitments from several top recruits and just added more talent to a team that is already overflowing with talent in almost every position. One of the recruits that committed to The Ohio State University was four star athlete/dual threat quarterback Bruce Judson. The 2017 recruit is from Cocoa, Florida and stands at 5’10”, weighs 170 pounds and runs a 40 yard time of 4.4. Although it’s quite early in his high school career, Judson is the fourth highest-rated player in the 2017 class in the state of Florida and 17th nationally in the 2017 class.

In the 2014 season he threw for 2,051 yards, 33 touchdowns and five interceptions. In the previous season, in 2013, he threw for 1,202 yards, 15 touchdowns and three interceptions while also rushing for 1,047 yards and 15 touchdowns. Judson announced his commitment to the Buckeyes on Twitter last night around midnight. I’m sure the Buckeyes winning a national title had a little influence on his decision.

Judson is the third commitment of Ohio State’s 2017 recruiting class. Here are his freshman highlights from 2013:

Below are his highlights for his sophomore year in 2014:

Catching up with 2017 star, Bruce Judson

Bruce Judson is a name that many Buckeye fans are becoming familiar with recently and may hear quite often in the near future. Bruce is a dual-threat quarterback at Cocoa High School in Cocoa, Florida. That high school may sound familiar, as it is the high school that, 2015 commit, Jamel Dean also attends. Bruce joined me to discuss his recruiting a little bit and how the Buckeyes fair.


JT- You were recently named the 16th best recruit in the country for 2017 by 247sports. How does that feel?

Bruce- I feel alright about it but I’m not go stop grinding till I get that top 5 spot or #1

JT- Who currently are your top schools?

Bruce- Ohio State, Florida, Clemson, Kentucky, and Miami

JT- How would you describe your recent visit to Ohio State for ‘Friday Night Lights’?

Bruce- It was great! I will be heading back up there!

JT- Do you have a time frame on when you think you’ll make it back up?

Bruce- November 29th.

JT- Do you have an idea of when you may be making a decision?

Bruce- I don’t know yet. Hopefully the first week of the football season or 2nd week.

JT- Do you have a position you prefer to play in college?

Bruce- No sir, I’m and athlete. Put me wherever they need me.

JT- Do you have anything to say to the Buckeye fans? Any final thoughts?

Bruce- See you guys soon! #Buckeyenation #GoBucks

As you can see, Bruce may be deciding quite soon if he does indeed decide the first or second week of the season. And you’ve got to like Ohio State’s chances with Ohio State being in the Top 5 and he also having a return trip scheduled on November 29th (“The Game”). Also fans should appreciate a humble kid that is willing to play anywhere that the coaches see him fit to help his team out. Buckeye fans, Bruce says “see you soon” and hopefully we will see him in the future donning the Scarlet and Gray.
