Ohio State Football Recruiting: Buckeyes Land J.K. Dobbins, Four-Star Athlete From Texas

Ohio State landed a commitment from a four-star athlete on Sunday.

Ohio State’s 2017 recruiting class keeps on rolling.

Four-star athlete J.K. Simmons, the No. 111 overall prospect in the class of 2017, announced his commitment via a Twitter post on Sunday.


The La Grange, Texas, native holds offers from Arizona State, Baylor, Cal, Duke, Houston, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, SMU, Stanford, TCU, Tennessee, Texas and Texas A&M in addition to the Buckeyes.

He was on commitment watch for Oklahoma in mid-February but that pledge to the Sooners never materialized. Instead, he committed to the Buckeyes less than a month later having never stepped foot on Ohio State’s campus.
