The Buckeyes have lost one of their top recruits.
Brenton Cox, a five-star defensive lineman in the 2018 class, has announced some major recruiting news.
The 6-foot-4, 247-pound defensive end out of Georgia has de-committed from Ohio State.
"I Want to thank the whole OSU organization and fan base for welcoming me into the buckeye family, but I would like to decommit," he wrote on Twitter.
Cox is the No. 2 strong-side defensive end and No. 22 overall recruit in the 2018 class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings.
Alabama is believed to be a major player here.
