GARRETT TELLS RIVALS HE WANTED TO RESERVE HIS SPOT AT OHIO STATE JK Dobbins committed to Ohio State without ever visiting the school, a rarity in today's recruiting world but, ironically, he was the second player in a month to make a verbal pledge to the Buckeyes in that manner. The first was Las Vegas (Bishop Gorman) defensive tackle Haskell Garrett, a Top 100 prospect, born in Vermont, who decided sans visit that he wanted to be a Buckeye; a program he described as his "dream school." Dream school or not, to commit sight unseen is a risk, right? The answer to that is undoubtedly "yes" but there's another risk in not choosing the school that you think will be the choice months from now. Why wait, right? That's what the 6-foot-2, 300-pound Garrett told Rlvals.com. From Adam Gorney: “I kind of just wanted to commit to Ohio State,” Garrett said. “It was an emotional decision and it was also a decision where I didn’t want to wait and put them on the back burner and have somebody else commit and I’d lose my spot. The challenge to keep Garrett in the class has not changed. As we've said a number of times, getting a commitment from an out-of-state player this early in the process just means everyone knows you're the early leader.
