With the rise of tattoo culture throughout society, it was only a matter of time before high school recruits began to commemorate their decisions with large format ink. Where the likes of Reuben Foster have gone before, Ohio State is now stacking up the artistic skin tributes, with two different future Buckeyes making their future plans a bit more firm with very large arm tattoos.
The photo you see above depicts the left arm of Kierre Hawkins, a tight end prospect from Maple Heights, Ohio who has already signed a grant-in-aid to join the Buckeyes’ 2016 class. He’ll make that official in February on National Signing Day.
Needless to say, that is some serious ink. Incredibly, Hawkins isn’t even the first planned future Buckeye to get a very large Buckeyes tattoo on their left arm in the past year. Class of 2017 quarterback prospect Danny Clark, of Archbishop Hoban, a Massillon native, also had a large Block ‘O’ tattooed on his left arm, below a small banner with the word “prototype.”
Keep in mind, Clark still has another year to go before he can officially join the Buckeyes. Something tells us that he won’t waver in his commitment.
