Jaylen Heyward, 4-star safety, includes B1G program in impressive final 4
Jaylen Heyward has narrowed down his options to a final 4, and one B1G team made the cut.
Ohio State will be vying for the talents of the elite S, as well as the 3 other contenders-Alabama, Florida, and national champions Georgia. Last summer, Heyward announced a group of twelve schools that topped his list. At that time, B1G Champions Michigan were also in contention, but did not make the final cut.

Heyward is a 4-star prospect and the No. 34 safety nationally for the class of 2024. He is also a top-50 recruit (No. 36) nationally and the No. 10 overall player out of Florida according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.
Although many experts have Heyward leaning towards Georgia, the Buckeyes are still in the hunt for the 5-foot-11, 180 lb. Florida native. Fans won’t have long to wait for a decision. Heyward plans to commit on Jan. 13 at 2:30. His commitment will be streamed live on 247Sports and YouTube.
