Ohio State commit Ben Edwards considering visits to Auburn, others

Ohio State safety commit Ben Edwards will take visits to Auburn, North Carolina, and Stanford before finalizing his college decision.

A couple of weeks ago Ohio State scored a commitment from Jacksonville (FL) Trinity Christian Academy safety Ben Edwards.

In the weeks since he commitment, he has still been hearing from a lot of schools including Auburn, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Stanford, and UCLA. He told Land-Grant Holy Land that he plans to eventually take visits to three of the schools in the form of Auburn, North Carolina, and Stanford.

Edwards tell us right now he considers himself a "soft-verbal" to Ohio State though he states he definitely still has them as his number one school. Like a lot of recruits these days, he just wants to keep his options open.

"I'm keeping my options open," Edwards said. "I'm still talking to coaches. (My commitment to Ohio State) is just a soft verbal right now. They're my number one school of course, though."

This will be an interesting recruitment to follow as it's clearly not over. Many, including myself thought Auburn was the team to beat for the three-star safety, before he shocked the recruiting world by committing to the Buckeyes back on February 11th.

Edwards boasts an impressive offer sheet, which includes scholarship offers from the likes of Auburn, Boston College, East Carolina, FIU, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Memphis, Missouri, Navy, North Carolina, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Penn State, Purdue, Stanford, Vanderbilt, as well as a few other schools.

It's tough to be comfortable with Edwards sticking with the Buckeyes, but he's still committed – at least as of now. Of the three schools he is planning on visiting, I think Auburn is easily the biggest threat to the Scarlet and Gray. The one good thing is he's probably going to take the visits sooner, rather than later, which beats really late visits like the one Jamarco Jones took to Michigan State the weekend before this past signing day. In situations like those, it's almost impossible to replace attrition that late in the game.
