Raesjon Davis' announcement time is set.

The Ohio State linebacker target will announce his college decision at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday on 247Sports' National Signing Day show.

Davis, the No. 4 outside linebacker and No. 48 overall prospect in the recruiting class of 2021, visited Ohio State with his family last weekend. While USC remains the Crystal Ball favorite to land Davis, a native of Santa Ana, California, he told 247Sports' Greg Biggins that the visit to Columbus improved Ohio State's chances of landing his commitment.

“I loved it there,” Davis told 247Sports. “I would definitely say the trip moved them up my list, not just because I liked it but my parents really liked it there too. The best part for me was being around all the players. All the early enrollees were with me the whole time and showed us around the campus and the city itself.

“I already knew Evan (Pryor) from 7v7 and Tre (TreVeyon Henderson) from the Future 50 and I was able to meet all the other guys as well and they were great to be around. Kyle (McCord) was super cool, I really enjoyed being around him. I knew Jack (Sawyer) already too and like him a lot, Jaylen (Johnson) is a great dude and like I said, all the guys were great and I really connected well with all of them.”

With 21 players already signed and J.T. Tuimoloau waiting to make his decision until “at least April,” Davis' announcement should be the only real drama for the Buckeyes on National Signing Day. If Davis does not choose the Buckeyes, it's unlikely Ohio State – which is currently just one scholarship under the limit for 2021 – will sign anyone else on Wednesday.
