Gabe Powers, an outside linebacker prospect from Marysville Ohio (Ohio Capital Conference Monarchs), is considered the 2nd best linebacker in the country for 2022. Being the child of a football coach, Powers learned the linebacker position very young.
Gabe Powers Crystal Ball
Powers, 6’4” and 225 pounds, is the overall top State of Ohio football prospect. He grew up an Ohio State fan but has been recruited heavily by the Wolverines. He is considered an Ohio State lock by Steve Wiltfong and a high Ohio State lean by a composite of Crystal Ball predictions. He could play defensive end in college in addition to linebacker.
Powers Scholarship Offers
Powers has scholarship offers from over 20 schools including Notre Dame, Penn State, Michigan, Wisconsin, USC, Florida State, Boston College, Colorado, Arkansas and Ohio State.
Powers Visits to Columbus
He is being recruit for the Buckeyes by Al Washington. He visited Columbus on August 8th, 2019 when he met Washington, Ryan Day and coach Ed Terwilliger. But he was not planning on making a decision soon when he was on campus last. He wanted to make visits and see how coaches interact with their players during practice, that was not possible when COVID 19 hit the country earlier this year.
Ohio State 2022 Class
If he was to commit to Ohio State for 2022, he would join a class with current members cornerback Jyaire Brown, linebacker CJ Hicks, and offensive tackle Tegra Tshabola from West Chester Ohio. He wears number 36 as well as his brother but does not admit that it is because of Ohio State great Chris Spielman.

Gabe Powers Commitment
Gabe Powers committed to Ohio State in early August 2020 to fulfil the dreams of his family and his great grand-father even though he had planned on waiting. Powers has come from a family of football players that have loved Ohio State. His dad played linebacker at Findlay and later coached high school ball around Central Ohio. Powers will be a member of a 2022 group that includes Dasan McCullough and CJ Hicks, one of the best trios in the country. Powers also recently had his overall rating improve to a 5 star level and the 33rd best player in the country. He comes into the class as a linebacker but can also play on the edge with some additional weight training in college.
