One week to the day after signing the second overall 2017 recruiting class in the country, Ohio State is off and running trying to lock down top tier 2018 talent to come to Columbus.
After recently making the trek to the Ohio State University for the Buckeyes junior day, four-star safety Jaiden Woodbey announced on Twitter that he, like his one-time St. John Bosco (CA) teammate and OSU signee Wyatt Davis, will suit up for Urban Meyer and crew on the next level.
Throughout the recruiting process, Woodbey, one of the most sought after prospects in the entire class of 2018, earned around 20 full ride scholarship offers from some of the best to play on Saturday afternoons. Alabama, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Washington, and USC, a program where he holds family ties, were among the programs to pursue the 6’2 205 defensive back from Upland, CA.
Alongside Davis, and the rest of his St. John Bosco teammates, Woodbey helped the Braves to an overall record of 13-2. Coming up big all season, he finished his junior year off with 70 total tackles and four interceptions.
The third ranked safety, and 32nd overall prospect in the 2018 class, according to the 247Sports Composite, Woodbey gives Meyer and the Buckeyes three verbal commits at the moment. Joining Emory Jones and Brian Snead in the class, his pledge moves OSU up from 19th to the 10th spot in the team recruiting rankings.
