Ben Christman of Revere has committed to play football at Ohio State University.

Christman, who will be a junior in the 2019-2020 school year, made his decision public on Wednesday night with a post on Twitter. He plays offensive line for Revere, and chose Ohio State over scholarship offers from Alabama, Georgia, Notre Dame and Wisconsin.

“I’m staying home,” Christman said. “I would like to thank my family for the countless sacrifices and for the love and support you give me. I wouldn’t be in this position without you. I want to thank my coaches and teammates for pushing me to become the player I am right now. I wouldn’t be here without you guys.”

A 6-6, 299-pound lineman who can play both tackle and guard, Christman has two letters in football, and one apiece in basketball and track and field.

Christman said OSU is recruiting him to play tackle.

Ohio State is making the transition from legendary coach Urban Meyer to Ryan Day, a young, up-and-coming coach with whom Christman is comfortable.

“It felt like home at Ohio State,” Christman said. “They check all of the boxes. I love the culture at Columbus. I trust the coaching staff, and I knew I wanted to go to school there.”

Christman said he has a 3.0 GPA at Revere and received 25 scholarship offers.

Also offering Christman a scholarship were Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Toledo, Kent State, Iowa State, Penn State, Michigan State, Michigan, West Virginia, Louisiana State, Rutgers, Nebraska, Florida, Ohio, Indiana, Akron, Minnesota, Tennessee, Kentucky and Duke.
