There were many that believed top 2016 defensive end Darius Fullwood would be ultimately coming to Columbus to play for the Ohio State Buckeyes. He even recently camped this past week with the team, however despite that, it seems as if Fullwood coming to play for Ohio State will not be happening.
According to Cleveland.com, the Buckeyes have been dropped from Fullwood’s list, mainly because they never really gave a significant offer.
Ohio State, however, is no longer under consideration.
That’s because Fullwood probably doesn’t have a committable offer from the Buckeyes, which he likely learned during a phone call with Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson after he revealed his top five.
According to the 247 Sports Crystal Ball predictions, Ohio State is still a possibility as they have him at 31% to Columbus. But, with Fullwood set to make his decision some time within the next week, that possibility will begin to dwindle mightily.
Right now, landing someone like Fullwood, out of Olney, Maryland, would be a huge coup for the 2015 recruiting class that has received a huge jolt of energy here in the month of June. With 10 commits, they’ve cracked the top 25 rankings in 247 Sports, and a commitment from Fullwood would no doubt boost them even higher.
But, it doesn’t seem as if that’ll be happening.
