Damon Webb commits to Ohio State

The same day the Buckeyes beat Michigan in basketball, Urban Meyer and co. added their second commit from the class of 2014 from Michigan's back yard.

With Webb committed to Ohio State, guessing that shirt can go to Goodwill now.

It's certainly a good day for Ohio State with respect to their rivalry with Michigan. Not even an hour removed from Ohio State's victory over the Wolverines in basketball, the Buckeyes and coach Urban Meyer added their second commit to the class of 2014. Damon Webb, a 4-star in the 247Composite ranking, committed to Ohio State after visiting Columbus this weekend giving his verbal commitment to the Buckeyes Sunday afternoon. Webb, the 8th best corner in the '14 class and the 3rd best player from the state of Michigan, joins Cleveland-Glenville offensive lineman Marcelys Jones for next year's Ohio State recruiting class. Webb is added to a loaded future secondary talent pool that should include 2013'ers Cameron Burrows, Eli Apple, Jayme Thompson, and potentially Gareon Conley as well.

Webb, 5-11 180 pound cornerback prospect, hails from the Detroit area. He was also being recruited by Michigan, Michigan State, LSU, and Illinois. He was thought to favor Michigan or Michigan State over the Buckeyes, but after seeing what the central Ohio campus had to offer, clearly felt otherwise.

While many expected defensive back Vonn Bell to be the topic du jour given his relatively high profile visit to campus this weekend or at the very least a 2013 wide receiver (potentially Shelton Gibson, Corn Elder, or Corey Smith) to be potentially be the next to give their verbal commitments to OSU, Webb instead becomes the newest future Buckeye.
