Melton is a bit of an under-the-radar prospect, at least as far as the recruiting services are concerned.
He ranks 657th nationally in the 247Sports Composite and 19th overall in Maryland, where he attends Good Counsel High School.
Melton is the No. 43 outside linebacker prospect in the country at this time and picked Ohio State from an impressive and lengthy offer list that also reportedly included Michigan, Notre Dame, Maryland, Nebraska and many others.
He is the first player from Maryland and the second linebacker (joining Cody Simon of St. Peter’s Prep in New Jersey) to commit to Ohio State for 2020.
His commitment comes one day after Cincinnati Elder tight end Joe Royer joined the class.
Simon committed Saturday along with Cincinnati Princeton defensive lineman Darrion Henry.
