Florida and Alabama Among Schools Pursuing Ohio State Pledge Shaun Wade

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Despite his commitment to Ohio State, Shaun Wade continues to receive interest from several programs. What will it take for other schools to flip him? Where does he stand with the Buckeyes?

Shaun Wade might be committed to Ohio State, but that is not stopping other schools from pursuing the four-star cornerback. The Trinity Christian Academy standout has seen plenty of schools stop by his high school this spring including: FloridaAlabama, Ohio State, Michigan State and Florida State

So what will it take for a school to flip the Jacksonville, Florida native? Wade needs to feel not only connected with the people, but know where he stands in the depth chart. 

"Just the options what they have for me," he said. "The people they have there, the corners they have there, the safeties they have there."


Wade currently has no favorites and says "everybody" is recruiting him the same. But with his plans to early enroll, don't expect his decision to take until National Signing Day. Wade is planning to visit "'Bama, Ohio State, USC, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Michigan," and others so he can figure out which schools suit him best. 

UF assistant Tim Skipper recently checked in on Scout's No. 4 cornerback in the nation, and Wade visited the Crimson Tide this spring. He discusses the two SEC schools, the Buckeyes and his recruitment in the video above. [Video also includes some practice highlights.
