Olentangy Liberty junior Jake Hale didn't waste time in making his verbal commitment to Ohio University earlier this month.

Although OU was his first offer and Hale had plans to participate in camps over the coming months, the 6-2, 205-pounder decided to give the Bobcats his commitment.

He's a long snapper and lineman who is the university's first verbal for the 2015 class.

He also is central Ohio's first commit from the 2015 class.

"I chose OU because I really loved the facilities and coaches and the feel the campus had," Hale said. "I had visited Purdue and Akon and was planning on attending a lot of camps in June, but OU was my first offer. It honestly had everything I wanted in a college and I decided I wanted to go ahead and commit."
