This Gray Box should catch no one by surprise, as four-star athlete Marshon Lattimore of Cleveland Glenville has committed to Ohio State over Alabama and Georgia Tech. The long awaited commitment came, as expected, during the All-American game.

Despite the rumors, there was never a doubt that the highly rated athlete would wear the Scarlet and Gray at the next level. The Cleveland native's crystal ball unanimously had him pegged for the Buckeyes.

Ranked as the no. 36 prospect in the nation, Marshon Lattimore could have an instant impact for Ohio State. While he does not plan to enroll early, the Buckeyes will be looking to replace three of four starters in the secondary. The six-foot, 175 pound prospect is expected to start his career off as corner under Kerry Coombs. Ohio's top prospect, according to 247Sports' composite ranking, could also be a factor in OSU's special teams game.
Lattimore's commitment comes after high school teammate Erick Smith committed to Ohio State earlier in the game. After adding the Glenville Duo, the coaching staff will now shift focus to rounding out the 2014 recruiting class.
