Five-Star Defensive End Zach Harrison Delays College Decision, Will Not Decide Before His Aug. 14 Birthday, Per Report

Zach Harrison is delaying his college decision.

Ohio State will have to wait a bit longer to hear the decision of what would be the highest-rated recruit of the Urban Meyer era.

Five-star defensive end Zach Harrision of Olentangy Orange High School in Columbus had previously hoped to make his decision before his Aug. 14 birthday, but told ABC6's Clay Hall on Monday that the decision will not happen by that date.


"I want to go to all three schools very badly," Harrison told ABC-6 Monday, the first day for high school football practice in the Buckeye State. Harrison has his list down to three: Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan.

"He's handled the attention very well," Orange head coach Zebb Schroeder said Monday. "It's pretty intense and I'm sure there are days it wears on him because he's getting recruited by some pretty storied programs."

Harrison had previously pointed toward his birthday, August 14th, to announce his decision but there is no timetable now.

Eleven Warriors had previously reported that Harrison was likely to delay his decision until late in the process, but Monday's news was the first formal announcement of the delay.

Harrison is the nation's No. 3 weak side defensive end and the No. 4 overall prospect in the 2019 class. He would be Ohio State's highest-rated commit since Terrelle Pryor in 2008.
