Stephen Collier commits to Ohio State

The newest Buckeye QB, Stephen Collier. - Student Sports

Ohio State adds a surprise #12 to the class of 2014.

In a rather sizable surprise, Ohio State added 2014 QB Stephen Collier to the fold late Friday evening. Collier, a dual-threat quarterback from Leesburg, Georgia, had been in Columbus recently to do a private workout with offensive coordinator Tom Herman and head coach Urban Meyer. The Buckeyes must've liked what they saw, as they'll now apparently be moving forward with Collier as their guy in the 2014 class.

The 6-4 208 pound Collier is a 3-star in the 247Composite Rankings. He's been evaluated by three of the four major recruiting services, but given the Buckeye pledge, you can expect that to be a solid four-out-of-four shortly. Collier doesn't calculate into the overall rankings for the class of 2014, but is the 30th ranked dual threat quarterback and the 93rd best player from the state of Georgia per the rankings.

Collier had also been considering Boston College, Cincinnati, and a group of non-BCS conference offers. Clearly Herman and Meyer knew what they were getting into by offering Collier and then accepting the commitment. This is expected to pretty much put an end to Brandon Harris' recruitment (UPDATE - 9:47 PM: Harris says he's still strongly considering Ohio State), though many felt he was bound for either Auburn or LSU anyways.

The quarterback announced his commitment Friday evening on Twitter:
