With Urban Meyer’s future in question at Ohio State, there’s understandably some uneasiness on the recruiting trail for prospects who have already committed to the Buckeyes. It would be easy to reconsider different options at this point.

But 4-star safety Jordan Battle says he’s still committed to Ohio State, though he did admit he’ll be keeping an eye on how the coaching situation plays out in Columbus.

In an interview with the Sun-Sentinel, Battle said he’s still firm in his commitment but knows things may change over the coming days and weeks.

“I still feel strong about it,” Battle told the Sun-Sentinel. “I’m going to see how things play out right now, but right now, I’m still a future Buckeye.”

Several prominent programs are still speaking with Battle, including Alabama, Florida, Miami and Oklahoma. the 4-star safety said he will continue to be in communication with those programs, as well as Ohio State.

Battle is a native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and attends St. Thomas Aquinas. He’s ranked as the 12th-best safety in the 2019 recruiting class, and is a top 25 player out of Florida. According to 247Sports, Battle is No. 162 overall among 2019 recruits.
