Per 247Sports, Singletary is a 6-foot-1, 170-pound CB who ranks as the No. 5 player at his position and is the second-best player from the state of Florida. During the 2018 and 2019 seasons at the high school level, Singletary was responsible for 74 total stops, 14 pass break-ups, 7 interceptions, 2 tackles for loss, a fumble recover and a pick-six.

He’s also played on both sides of the football at the high school level, showing off his incredible versatility on the field.

With Singletary’s commitment, Ohio State maintains its No. 1 ranking with the 2022 recruiting class. The Buckeyes already have 10 pledges, 3 of which are 5-star prospects and 9 of which rank inside the Top 300 nationally.
