It’s been a good weekend for the Ohio State Buckeyes. On Saturday, they picked up the victory—albeit a narrow one—against the Nebraska Cornhuskers at home. It was a big recruiting game for the Buckeyes, and they hoped something would blossom from it. They wouldn’t have to wait long, as on Sunday, three-star running back Marcus Crowley (Jacksonville / Trinity Christian Academy) posted on Twitter that he’s flipping his commitment from Miami (FL) to the Scarlet and Gray.
A member of the 2019 recruiting cycle, Crowley is graded by the 247sports composite as the 77th best prospect in Florida, and the 35th best running back in the class. Crowley had 15 offers, according to his profile page on 247sports, with Miami, Ohio State and Louisville being just a few of the big-time offers he’s received.
For the Buckeyes, Crowley becomes the 15th member of their 2019 class. Ohio State now is ranked as the 12th best overall class for ‘19, and the second-best class in the Big Ten—trailing only Michigan.
Will more recruits make commitments to Urban Meyer’s program in the coming days and weeks? We’ll just have to wait and see.
