Four-star Ohio State OL flips commitment to Pac-12 school
On second thought, Jake Moretti decided to stay home.
The four-star offensive lineman was originally committed to Ohio State. But on Thursday night, the Arvada, Colo. recruit announced that he flipped his commitment to his home-state school, Colorado:

Moretti was the No. 13 offensive tackle and the No. 74 player overall in the 2017 class. He originally committed to the Buckeyes on the Fourth of July.
Colorado is in the midst of its best season in recent memory and still has a shot at winning the Pac-12.
With a class of Ohio State’s size — the Buckeyes already have 16 commitments — a flip like Moretti’s isn’t uncommon.
The Buckeyes no longer have the No. 1 class in the 247sports class rankings. For now, that title belongs to Alabama.
They still have commitments from 15 four and five-star recruits, the top two of which are offensive linemen.
