Thompson Makes Seven

By Alex on April 2, 2012 at 9:29a

While many of you (and I) were sleeping, some news I alluded to yesterday broke in the form of the Buckeyes getting the seventh commitment for the class of 2013 in Toledo Central Catholic DB Jayme Thompson.

Thompson (6-2/185) was committed to West Virginia since the beginning of February, but after receiving an Ohio State offer last week decided to make the visit to Columbus to check out what Urban Meyer had to offer and left campus becoming the newest member of the Buckeye family.

Rated as's 13th ranked safety and a four-star prospect, Thompson also had offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Louisville, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt and others before flipping from the Mountaineers to Ohio State. He gives OSU the third member of the secondary in this class, joining cornerbacks Cameron Burrows and Eli Woodard, a group that is projected to be among the best in the country for the position.

We will try and catch up with Jayme to get more on his commitment to Ohio State, but for now we once again can enjoy some good news after a rough Saturday night. You can read a bit more about the situation in Jason's Skull Session from earlier this morning, but for those of you too lazy to scroll down please see your future safety's highlight reel below.
