The good news keeps rolling in for the Ohio State football program. After landing four-star wide receiver Binjimen Victor this morning, the Buckeyes have added another piece to the class of 2016 puzzle.

When the Buckeyes lost out on one time verbal pledge Tristen Wallace to Oregon, it left the Ohio State football staff searching for a 2016 quarterback prospect to bring into the fold. Those days are now over. After having him high on their radar for a matter of time, longtime Maryland commit Dwayne Haskins, has flipped to the Buckeyes. He formally announced his flip, along with four star linebacker Keandre Jones, whose Buckeye flip was reported yesterday.

Haskins, a four-star prospect from Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland was one of the most sought after quarterback prospects in the senior class. Not just OSU, and Maryland, but schools like LSU, Florida, Florida State, Alabama, Auburn, Michigan, Notre Dame, and many other top notch college football programs dished out scholarship offers to the 6'3, 200-pound Under Armour All-American.

Trying to finish their 2016 recruiting class off strong, Haskins, the seventh quarterback, and 70th overall prospect in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, gives the Buckeyes 20 current commits.

Haskins will likely redshirt his first season, and then compete with Joe Burrow, Stephen Collier, and later, Danny Clark, to be Ohio State's next starting quarterback.
