4-star safety out of Nashville gives verbal commitment to Ohio State
Another elite talent has committed to Ohio State this spring, putting even more separation between the Buckeyes’ 2021 class and the rest of the field.
On Tuesday, the Buckeyes received a verbal pledge from four-star safety Andre Turrentine. The Nashville, Tenn. native made his announcement public via Twitter, becoming the 14th player to commit to Ryan Day and company during the 2021 recruiting cycle.
“I want to take the time to thank God, my parents, coaches, teammates and all of the people that have helped me to live my dreams,” Turrentine wrote on Twitter. “I would also like to thank all of the coaches and schools who took their time and effort to recruit me. I have enjoyed each and every part of the recruiting process and I have come to a decision. I will be committing to THE Ohio State University.”
So Blessed 🙌🏾
