Scout has put together a highlight video of the top five cornerbacks in the 2017 recruiting class, two of whom are committed to OSU – five-star Jeffrey Okudah of Grand Prairie (Texas) South and four-star Shaun Wade of Trinity Christian Academy in Jacksonville, Fla.
Okudah is rated by Scout as the No. 2 prospect at his position and the No. 15 overall player in the 2017 class. Wade is the fifth-ranked corner and checks in at No. 55 in the overall rankings.
The two defensive backs are both early enrollees and are currently at the Ohio State campus participating in the team’s winter workouts while taking classes full time.
They help fill the void in the Ohio State defensive backfield that was created when corner Gareon Conley, safety Malik Hooker and corner Marshon Lattimore all declared for the NFL draft with at least one year of eligibility remaining.
With National Signing Day just hours away, Ohio State’s recruiting class currently sits at 20.
