Five-star athlete Jeffrey Okudah will commit to the school of his choice on January 7 at the Army All-American Bowl. The Campus Insiders staff gave its predictions on where the nation’s No. 1 ATH out of Texas will end up.


Rob Judin

For a long time now, the signs have been pointing toward Ohio State. I believe Baron Browning’s decision to commit a couple of months ago helped set the table for someone like Jeffrey Okudah to join the Buckeyes as well. The two players have spent some more time together at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl practices, and I believe Urban Meyer’s staff will beat out Florida State for Okudah’s commitment.

Jeff Bartl

Barring a major upset, Okudah is on his way to Columbus. Urban Meyer has gone all-in on him and wants him bad, and that’s especially true considering the NFL prospects that have already declared for the draft, leaving the Buckeyes’ defensive backfield thinned out. This will be a major recruiting coup for Meyer.

It’s down to FSU and Ohio State here. Those were the final two official visits Okudah took (his Ohio State one was for The Game, no less), and they were the final two schools to make a house call. Here’s the difference, though. On December 1, Okudah was visited by FSU defensive coordinator Charles Kelly – not a bad figure to come over and woo the nation’s No. 1 athlete. Unfortunately for Kelly and the Noles, that trip came one day after Urban Meyer paid a visit. When a head coach with three national titles takes a break from College Football Playoff preparation to see you, it’s tough to turn down. Meyer plucks a premier talent from his protege Tom Herman’s backyard.

Dave Miller

The Texas native is one of the best cornerbacks in the entire country, and he has long been considered a Buckeyes lean. He was in attendance for the Buckeyes’ double-overtime victory over Michigan this season and received an in-home visit from Urban Meyer just days after that victory. Because OSU has been landing top talent in the secondary since Meyer’s arrival, the corps is prone to early departures for the NFL. That’s the nature of the beast when landing four- and five-star recruits annually. So maintaining good depth is essential for the Buckeyes to remain an annual College Football Playoff contender.
