Ohio State dipped into the junior college ranks to secure a commitment from a former Alabama defensive back.
Brenham (Tex.) Blinn College four-star cornerback Kendall Sheffield picked the Buckeyes over Texas, Texas A&M, TCU and USC.
Sheffield is the No. 1 cornerback in the junior college ranks per 247Sports’ Composite Rankings.
Sheffield signed with Alabama in 2015 before redshirting as a freshman. He transferred out over the summer and enrolled at Blinn.
With Sheffield’s commitment, the rich just got richer. Ohio State has SIX four or five-star defensive backs in its 2017 recruiting class, which is currently No. 2 nationally.
