Ohio State has assembled one of their best recruiting classes ever for 2017, but it now has one less member.
2017 LB Antjuan Simmons of Michigan has decommitted from Ohio State:
After talking to my mom and people I'm close to I have decided to re-open my recruiting process. No interviews please. Thank you.— Antjuan Simmons (@_antjuan_) December 1, 2016
Simmons, who committed to Ohio State back in March, is a composite 4-star linebacker. His commitment was especially notable, since he hails from Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor, just literal steps away from the Big House.
Simmons is the 19th ranked OLB nationally in the 2017 class, per 247. He holds other offers from Notre Dame, Georgia, LSU, and a slew of other power programs. He will certainly not lack for options.
Right now, the Buckeyes have 15 commitments in the class of 2017, and remain ranked second nationally, tops in the Big Ten. They are currently without any linebacker commitments, but they will hope to replace Simmons with one, if not more, other recruits.
We wish Simmons the very best of luck in his college career.
