Fleming had 31 offers, but chose the Buckeyes over Penn State, Clemson, Alabama and Georgia. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound receiver is ranked as the No. 1 receiver and the No. 1 player out of Pennsylvania. Overall, he’s listed as the sixth-best player in the class, per 247Sports.
With Fleming’s commitment, Ohio State’s recruiting class sits 11th nationally and second in the B1G. He’s the second five-star prospect to commit to the Buckeyes, joining Paris Johnson Jr.
Fleming is the third wide receiver to give his verbal pledge to OSU in the 2020 class.
