For the second time in a week, an Ohio State commitment to the 2022 football recruiting class has decommitted. Tight end Benji Gosnell made the call to reopen his commitment a few days ago, and today it is 5-star cornerback Jaheim Singletary out of Jacksonville’s Robert E. Lee High School.
Rumors were swirling prior to the announcement Sunday with Singletary visiting other schools while being supposedly firmly committed to OSU. And with a second visit to Miami this past weekend and some sharing of graphics from the Hurricanes and Gators, the writing seemed to be on the wall. Singletary didn’t commit to any other school at the moment but simply reopened things.
It’s a big loss for Ohio State no doubt. Singletary was ranked as the No. 14 prospect in the entire class and fifth rated cornerback according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
There’s still a chance that Singletary could find his way back into the class, but it’s not usually a good thing when a kid decommits after visiting a couple of other schools without a coaching change in the mix.
We’ll continue to follow this, but for now, Ohio State’s No. 1 ranked recruiting class has come back to the field just a little and is just barely ahead of Penn State.
