Ohio State just added another impressive piece to the 2021 recruiting class.

There are not many players for the 2021 cycle still on the board, but defensive lineman J.T. Tuimoloau took his time making his decision. That came on Sunday during a live interview with CBS Sports HQ.

In that interview, Tuimoloau officially selected the Buckeyes over Oregon, Washington, and USC:

Tuimoloau said the environment in Columbus just felt like home while experiencing a brotherhood among the players.

247 Sports rates Tuimoloau as the top prospect and the top defensive lineman nationally for the class of 2021. Meanwhile, the Composite Rankings have Tuimoloau as the No. 3 overall prospect nationally and the No. 2 DL nationally.

Tuimoloau becomes the fifth five-star commit for the Buckeyes via the class of 2021. Along with Ohio DL Jack Sawyer (No. 4 prospect) and Washington WR Emeka Egbuka (No. 9 prospect), Ohio State now boasts three of the top-10 prospects nationally for the class.

Best of luck Tuimoloau as he starts his career with the Buckeyes!
