Like Shaun Wade (Virginia Tech) and Chase Young (Maryland), longtime Ohio State commit Antjuan Simmons was on the campus of another program over the weekend.

Per Bill Greene of and other reports, Simmons officially visited Michigan State this weekend for the Spartans blow out win over the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers.

Simmons, a four-star rated linebacker out of Pioneer High in Ann Arbor, Mich., has had a decent relationship with the Michigan State coaching staff since the beginning of his recruiting process.

The first program he ever visited, Simmons spurned the Spartans for the Buckeyes in March.

Simmons is currently the lone linebacker in the Buckeyes class of 2017. With numbers getting tight, Ohio State is heavily pursuing five-star Texas native Baron Browning, who will reportedly be in Columbus for the Buckeyes matchup with arch rival Michigan later this month.

With former Jim Tressel assistant coach Mark Dantonio looking to pull more than a upset this weekend against Ohio State, can the Spartans steal Simmons away from the Buckeyes? Stick with Land-Grant Holy Land for the latest.

More All-Americans

Following in the footsteps of a long list of former, current, and future Buckeyes, Ohio State verbal commitments Tate Martell, Tyjon Lindsey, Haskell Garrett, and key OSU target Bubba Bolden all received their U.S. Army All American Jersey during a ceremony held at Bishop Gorman High School (NV) on Friday.

The quartet of All-Americans have played a huge part in Bishop Gorman becoming one of the top overall high school programs in the entire country. At the moment, the Gaels have ran off more than 50 straight victories against some very stiff competition.

You can watch the aforementioned OSU commits and many other Buckeye pledges and targets in the annual U.S. Army All-American game on Jan. 7, 2017 live on national television from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
