Ohio State lost its only true linebacker commit of the 2017 recruiting class Wednesday night when four-star Antjuan Simmons (Pioneer HS / Ann Arbor, MI) announced his plan to go in a different direction.

Simmons (6-foot-1, 215 pounds), who ranks as the No. 19 outside linebacker in his class, committed to Ohio State in March over offers from hometown schools Michigan and Michigan State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame, Penn State, Tennessee and Texas A&M, among others.

Even without Simmons, coach Urban Meyer still has 15 commits for the ’17 class, which currently sits behind Alabama at No. 2 in the nation.
