Tommy Schutt Becomes #17

By Jeremy Birmingham on December 12, 2011 at 6:41p

Yesterday the rumblings were that Penn State commitment Tommy Schutt from Glenbard West High School in Illinois would rescind his verbal agreement with Penn State and instead decide to become a Buckeye. Today it appears that is official.

Schutt is a 5 star defensive tackle who visited Ohio State officially over the weekend, and he could be the first in a wave of big-time commitments for Coach Meyer and the Buckeyes in the next two months. At 6'3 and 290 pounds, Schutt will be a big space eater in the middle of the Buckeye defensive line. He joins Adolphus Washington as five star recruits on the defensive line, but those two could be joined soon by current MSU commit Se'Von Pittman and DE Noah Spence from Pennsylvania.

Schutt is the 17th commitment in Ohio State's 2012 class, you can watch him in the US Army All-American game in January.
