George Hill decommits from Ohio State

The Buckeyes lose another class of 2016 pledge.

Another Ohio State class of 2016 commit has announced he too will look around at other programs. After losing the pledge of four-star defensive end Terrell Hall, Hubbard speedster George Hill is now back on the market and no longer verbally committed to the Buckeyes.

Hill, a four-star athlete, was the first class of 2016 commitment for the Buckeyes. Ending his recruitment in the summer of 2014 before his junior season, the Second Team All-Ohio selection might have been pegged to play his college ball in Columbus, but was still high on the recruiting board of other schools.

The Buckeyes Big Ten foe Michigan State, where Hill's friend and former Hubbard High teammate LJ Scott now plays has been rumored as one of the main programs after the 6'0, 200-pound standout for months. The Pittsburgh Panthers are also in the mix for his pledge.

With Hill no longer committed to Ohio State the national champion Buckeyes class of 2016 now currently sits at 18 verbal commitments.

Land-Grant Holy Land wishes Hill nothing but the best in his recruitment.
