Ohio State added one of the crown jewels of their super loaded 2017 recruiting class, five-star corner Shaun Wade, this past January.
Wade knows the ‘17 class could be one for the ages, but he’s not worried about the expectations, the aggregate star rankings, or anything like that:
That “really means nothing,” Wade said. “"We’re just all going to go into class and compete against each other and just win championships. I hope all of us get to make it to the league," he said. "That’d be a big thing for Ohio State."
Though Wade reiterated his commitment to OSU is solid, he’s performing his due diligence and at the behest of his parents, taking a few precursory visits, just in case something unexpected happens and he and the Buckeyes cool on their current arrangement.
Wade mentioned Alabama and Notre Dame as “plan Bs”, despite his insistence that he expects to be a Buckeye when everything’s said and done on National Signing Day 2017. He’s expected to take visits to check out USC and UCLA, though OSU faithful shouldn’t start to feel nervous yet.
