There weren’t many specific details as to why Powell decided to push back his commitment date, but the situation at Ohio State could be a factor. In addition to the Buckeyes, Powell has received offers from Oklahoma, Texas, TCU and Texas Tech.
In total, Powell has 22 offers, according to 247Sports.
Powell is a 6-foot-2, 182-pound wide receiver and safety and is ranked as the 29th-best athlete in the 2019 recruiting class. He’s also one of the top 50 players out of Texas.
Powell did not mention another potential commitment date in his Twitter message.
