WATCH: Four-star Ohio receiver gives pledge to Buckeyes
That’s the word thrown around Ohio State often these days. Usually “reload” is used when talking about OSU losing players early to the draft.
In this case, it’s all about recruiting.
The Buckeyes got surprising news the other day with the announcement that four-star receiver Tyjon Lindsey dropped his commitment from Ohio State. So naturally, Ohio State added a four-star receiver just a few days later.
Four-star Ohio wideout Jaylen Harris announced that he’s coming to Columbus in 2017:
The Cleveland native is the No. 6 recruit in the state of Ohio and the No. 28 receiver overall. He picked Ohio State instead of the likes of Alabama, Michigan State, Penn State and Tennessee.
Harris’ commitment gave the Buckeyes their second receiver in their 2017 class. He’ll join Trevon Grimes as the two lead wideouts for OSU’s incoming class.
The Buckeyes now have commitments from four of the top six recruits in the state of Ohio.
Lindsey’s de-commitment dropped Ohio State from No. 1 to No. 2 in the 247sports class rankings. OSU is still at the No. 2 spot, but the Buckeyes got a nice lift with Harris’ commitment.
