Ohio State picked up verbal commitment No. 3 this week when Columbus Eastmoor Academy safety prospect Ron Tanner picked the Buckeyes at a press conference at his high school.
A four-star prospect, Tanner is rated the No. 7 safety in the nation by Scout.com. As a junior, he recorded 83 tackles and seven interceptions on defense and doubled as a quarterback, where he threw for more than 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Tanner is the third defensive back to commit to the Buckeyes in this class, joining Plantation, Fla., safety Jeremy Cash and Toledo Rogers cornerback DerJuan Gambrell.
