Four-star defensive lineman recruit Jason Moore committed Sunday to play college football at Ohio State.

Per the 247Sports composite rankings, Moore’s announcement nudged Ohio State past Notre Dame for the highest-rated 2023 recruiting class thus far.

Moore, who attends DeMatha Catholic High School in Maryland, is the No. 53 overall recruit and No. 5 defensive lineman in 247Sports’ rankings. He is also the Buckeyes’ 14th four-star commitment to go along with two five-star wide receivers, Brandon Inniss and Carnell Tate.

Moore also considered Maryland, Michigan, Notre Dame and Penn State.

Chase Young also starred at DeMatha before committing to the Buckeyes, developing under defensive line coach Larry Johnson and ultimately going No. 2 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft.

“Having the chance to play with one of the best D-line coaches ever, it’s definitely an experience that a lot of players had, and is something I want to have,” Moore told 247Sports, “so it’s definitely a blessing to be able to play there.
