Danny Clark decommits from Ohio State.

Ohio State's top-ranked 2017 recruiting class shrunk by one on Tuesday morning. Three-star Danny Clark announced he is decommitting from the Buckeyes.

The Archbishop Hoban High School quarterback made the announcement on his personal Twitter account.

Clark committed to Ohio State in December of 2013, the first high school freshman quarterback to be extended a scholarship offer by the Buckeyes. His status with the program came in question this summer, however, after the Buckeyes elected to recruit and accept a commitment from another quarterback in the 2017 class, Las Vegas Bishop Gorman's Tate Martell.

Clark remained true to the Buckeyes, though, and answered constant questions about whether he was asked to grayshirt among other things. His fit in Ohio State's offense as a 6-foot-4, 223-pound pro-style quarterback remained a question as well, which Clark addressed in the statement he posted on Twitter. Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes run a spread.

Tuesday, he changed his mind and made his decision to explore other options public. Clark's announcement leaves Ohio State with 17 verbal commits in its 2017 class.

Clark is sure to have plenty of choices on where to attend school and play college football but early signs show Kentucky and Indiana as potential leaders.
