The wait is finally over for Cleveland Heights four-star wide receiver Jaylen Harris.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pounder had been asked to hold off on a decision while Ohio State figured out its scholarship situation, and finally committed to the Buckeyes on Friday morning.

The Harris File

  • Class: 2017
  • Size: 6-foot-5, 210 pounds
  • Pos: WR
  • School: Cleveland Heights (Cleveland, OH)
  • Composite Rating: ★★★★
  • Composite Rank: 28 (WR)

Harris, the sixth-best player in the state and the No. 28 wide receiver overall in the Class of 2017, had been in a bit of a holding pattern after including Ohio State in his Top 5 alongside Alabama, Michigan State, Penn State and Tennessee back in early August.

There were concerns the Buckeyes would not have room for Harris in the class, especially with five-star wideout Trevon Grimes and four-star Tyjon Lindsey already in the fold.

He previously said Ohio State would make room for him no matter the circumstances, but he became a priority when Lindsey reopened his recruitment on Wednesday.

Harris, the third player to commit to Ohio State in the last week, becomes the 19th member of the Buckeyes' second-ranked recruiting class.

Eleven Warriors will have more on Harris' commitment soon.
