After months of speculation, Shaun Wade didn’t change his mind.

The five-star cornerback recruit never officially opened up his recruitment, but he took official visits to Alabama and Notre Dame during the fall.

Still, Wade reaffirmed his pledge to the Buckeyes on Monday:

Even though that was already considered a key piece of Ohio State’s 2017 class, it was an important reaffirmation. Urban Meyer visited with Wade last week before the dead period began.

The U.S. Army All-American is the No. 4 cornerback and No. 22 player overall in the 2017 class. He originally committed to the Buckeyes all the way back when they played Oregon in the 2015 national championship.

With Wade still on the board, the Buckeyes have six five-star commitments in its 2017 class, which ranks No. 2 behind Alabama.
