As first reported by the Orlando Sentinel, 4-star cornerback Sevyn Banks has committed to Ohio State. He becomes the ninth member of the 2018 Buckeye recruiting class.
After visiting Columbus for Ohio State’s spring game earlier this month, the 6’1, 180 lb. corner from Jones High School in Orlando, FL on Wednesday made things official and announced his commitment to Urban Meyer, Kerry Coombs, Mark Pantoni, and the Bucks. Banks checks in as the 22nd best corner in the 2018 class. He's the 40th best player from the state of Florida at time of publication and the 201st best player in the entire '18 recruiting class.
The interest in Banks has increased dramatically recently, despite the fact that he missed his entire junior season with an ACL tear in his left knee. Despite the injury, Banks held offers from Florida, Auburn, Florida State, Louisville, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, LSU, South Carolina, Tennessee, and others.
Banks’ commitment comes as a bit of a surprise, as his brother, Marcell Harris, plays safety for Florida, and him following his brother’s footsteps to the Gators seemed like a safe bet. Banks selected the Buckeyes over offers from other major programs in the SEC.
Here’s what Banks is set to bring to Ohio State for the 2018 season:
