Parris Campbell commits to Ohio State

The Buckeyes add a third on a busy Sunday. Campbell becomes the fifth commit of 2014.

The newest Buckeye, Parris Campbell.

Joining a huge recruiting day for Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer for the 2014 class, St. Vincent-St Mary running back Parris Campbell told our Zach Smith that he's committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes. Campbell received an offer from the Ohio State coaching staff back on January 17th, but it wasn't immediately clear whether or not it was committable. Campbell had also received an offer from Butch Jones' Tennessee coaching staff (a recent "rival" of the Buckeyes' staff on the trail as it were), but while visiting Columbus this weekend made things official for the Buckeyes.

Campbell, a 5-11 170 pound running back from the Akron area, isn't a particularly known product on the recruiting/scouting circuit. He's presently not rated by 247Sports, Rivals, nor Scout. He also had outstanding offers from Indiana and former Ohio State defensive corodinator Mark Dantonio and the Michigan State Spartans.

Campbell is high school teammates with 2014 4-star LB Dante Booker, who Ohio State would also love to sign. He becomes the fifth commitment of the 2014 class on a seemingly record day for Urban Meyer's Buckeyes in which '14 OL Kyle Trout and '14 DE Lawrence Marshall also committed.
