Ohio State has landed its second pledge in as many days, as Orlando, Florida, Jones four-star cornerback Sevyn Banks committed to the Buckeyes on Wednesday night. His pledge, which was first reported by the Orlando Sentinel, comes on the heels of a visit for the annual Spring Game just under two weeks ago.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Banks is considered the 22nd-best cornerback and No. 201 prospect overall in the Class of 2018. He picked the Buckeyes over 23 other offers from programs such as Auburn, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
The Banks File
- Class: 2018
- Size: 6-foot-1, 180 pounds
- Pos: CB
- School: Jones (Orlando, FL)
- Composite Rating: ★★★★
- Composite Rank: 22 (CB)
The younger brother of Gators safety Marcell Harris, Banks missed his entire junior season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Ohio State offered him a scholarship in late January in spite of that.
Banks becomes the ninth member of Ohio State's 2018 recruiting class, joining the aforementioned Jones, five-star defensive tackle Taron Vincent, four-star defensive end Brenton Cox, four-star offensive tackle Max Wray, four-star safeties Jaiden Woodbey and Josh Proctor, four-star running backs Brian Snead and Jaelen Gill.
Eleven Warriors will have more on Banks' pledge soon.
