Report: Ohio State will host 5-star Alabama cornerback

If you think the broken record about Alabama prospects and Ohio State football is getting out of hand, you might be right.

It is a talent-rich program, and the Buckeyes are doing exactly what they should now that the door is open. Already three former Crimson Tide players have transferred to Columbus and now one of the state’s best high school prospects is looking hard at Ohio State.

Na’eem Offord, a 6-foot, 1-inch, and 185-pound 2025 cornerback is set to visit the Buckeyes according to a report by 247Sports Steve Wiltfong (subscription required). Although Ohio State already has commits from Devin Sanchez and Blake Woodby at the position, they are looking to land another elite prospect.

Offord, like his potential future teammates, is ranked as one of the best at his position and in the country. The 247Sports Composite Rankings has him as the No. 1 cornerback and 6th overall prospect in the nation.

His visit has been set for the weekend of February 2, as Wiltfong reports that Offord has “built a great rapport with the whole staff led by Tim Walton.”
