Less than two weeks after announcing his decommitment from Ohio State, four-star Nashville, Tennessee linebacker Kane Patterson announced Tuesday that he is committing to Clemson.

Patterson – the only player who has decommitted from Ohio State in 2018 – had been committed to the Buckeyes since early July before announcing his decommitment on Aug. 24. The Christ Presbyterian Academy linebacker told Russell Vannozzi of the Brentwood Home Page that he decided to decommit from Ohio State in part because of the university's investigation last month into Urban Meyer, resulting in the head coach's three-game suspension.
“What was going on with Ohio State for a little bit [played a role in the decision] … Coach Meyer was a huge part for me,” Patterson said at the time. “So, I just kind of need to take a step back and reevaluate some things.”
