Sibley Pledges To Ohio State

Ohio State picked up another class of 2017 commitment when Akron Hoban four-star running back Todd Sibley pulled the trigger on his offer.

Two of Ohio's best prospects in the class of 2017 became teammates when four-star quarterback and Ohio State commit Danny Clark transferred to Akron Hoban, joining four-star running back Todd Sibley.

Now they'll get to play together in college, too.

Sibley committed to Ohio State on Sunday, giving the Buckeyes yet another talented player in a class that is already developing despite being more than 20 months away from being able to sign a letter of intent. He chose Ohio State over offers from Akron, Kentucky and Michigan.

The 5-10, 202-pound back visited Ohio State on April 2 and came away impressed with what he saw from head coach Urban Meyer and the rest of the program.

"Coach Meyer was the hardest recruiter I've ever seen with me today," Sibley said after that visit. "He was showing me all the trophies and all the rings, and he told me there's no better place than Ohio State. He wants me to come down again soon, and bring my mom with me next time, so he can get to know her.

"All I could tell Coach Meyer was if he gets to my mom the same way he got to me today, then he is going to have himself a player. He said he can't wait to meet her. I told him my mom is going to have 50,000 questions for him, and he'd better be prepared to answer them. He said he can't wait."

It appears Meyer passed that test, giving Ohio State another talented in-state commitment.
