The Texas native won’t be a Buckeye.

You can’t get them all.

Just like on the field, you can’t always win on the recruiting trail. After putting in work into his recruitment for months, Urban Meyer and the Ohio State coaching staff have struck out on a key five-star target.

Announcing his college plans live on ESPN2, Episcopal (TX) standout defensive tackle Marvin Wilson let the world know he will continue the next chapter of his playing days and education at FSU.

Receiving over 25 scholarship offers from programs across the country, the 6’4 330-pound Wilson chose the Seminoles over not just the Buckeyes, but programs such as Louisiana State, Oklahoma, and South Florida.

The Under Armour All-American joins Jay Tufele (USC) as the second defensive line prospect to commit to another program over Ohio State on national signing day. While in most years that would be a huge blow, the Buckeyes will look to 2017 signees Haskell Garrett and Jerron Cage, both four-star prospects, to take care of business in the trenches for the years to come.

Land-Grant Holy Land wishes Wilson nothing but the best during his college career.
