This brings all new meaning to a two-for-one special. You recruit the brothers as a package deal and end up with two offensive linemen when they commit to you.
The Armstrong twins are rated as four-star recruits and chose Ohio State over Michigan, Georgia and Penn State, among other schools.
Deontae is a little taller at 6-foot-7 and 285 pounds, while Devontae is slightly heavier at 6-foot-6 and 292 pounds.
The brothers called committing to Ohio State a “surreal experience” and said it was nice to get a “huge weight” off their shoulders.
The brothers are members of the class of 2024, meaning they will play their senior seasons in the fall of 2023 and step onto Ohio State’s campus as freshmen in the fall of 2024.
If they turn out to be anything like the Pouncey Twins on the field, Ohio State will be very lucky.
