Four-star outside linebacker Antjuan Simmons decommitted from Ohio State, leaving the Buckeyes with 15 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class.  


Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes may be set for another College Football Playoff run, but they’re losing ground on the recruiting trail.

Four-star prospect Antjuan Simmons decommitted from Ohio State on Wednesday night, leaving the Buckeyes with 15 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class. Ohio State still remains at No. 3 in the class rankings, but it’s now 296 points behind No. 2 Oklahoma and 763 points behind No. 1 Alabama.

Simmons, who’s from Ann Arbor, has an offer from the Michigan Wolverines in addition to offers from Arizona, Georgia, Miami, Michigan State Notre Dame, Oregon, Texas A&M, UCLA and others.

He released a brief statement regarding his decision to back off his pledge to the Buckeyes.

“After talking to my mom and people I’m close to, I have decided to re-open my recruiting process.”

At 6-foot-1, 205 lbs Simmons is ranked as the No. 22 outside linebacker and No. 287 overall player in the nation. He’s a two-way player, as he also lines up at running back, but Simmons can lay the wood when he’s roaming in the second level on defense. He’s above average in pass coverage and will only improve with the IQ he possesses at the position.

He last took an official visit to East Lansing on Nov. 12 when Michigan State took down Rutgers, 49-0. However, the Spartans aren’t the only ones believed to be in the race for Simmons. Expect both Notre Dame and Michigan to fight for his commitment.
