Ohio State had room for Lynn Bowden after all.
The electric four-star athlete from Warren G. Harding High School waited patiently throughout his recruitment for an offer from the state power. After a January re-evaluation period of in-state prospects failed to materialize one, Bowden committed to the University of Kentucky.
The Buckeyes, however, made a last-ditch effort for the services of the Raider. It wasn't enough.

Bowden is the highest rated commit in the Wildcats' 2017 class. He joins former Ohio State commit Danny Clark and four other Ohioans.
