    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.

    HASKELL GARRETT TELLS SCOUT.COM HE'S ALL BUCKEYE

    After his five-day visit to Ohio State at the end of March, four star Buckeye commitment Haskell Garrett's recruitment went from "still need to see" to "I'm done completely" in no time at all.

    From Scout.com:

    Garrett had initially had planned trips to Notre Dame, Penn State and others–he did make the Notre Dame trip two days before coming to Columbus–but it appears that moving forward, it's nothing but Ohio State for the 6-foot-2, 300-pounder.

    The Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) standout told Scout's Greg Biggins his first trip to see the Buckeyes answered all his questions.

    With an increasing presence in Las Vegas, having a firm commitment from one of the Gaels' biggest stars can do nothing but help for the remainder of this cycle and beyond.

    Garrett glad to help in recruiting efforts

    Speaking of the Buckeyes latest commitment, you can give a little assist to Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) defensive tackle – and Ohio State verbal – Haskell Garrett. The country’s fourth-ranked defensive tackle has gotten to know the aforementioned Wyatt Davis over the last few months through the recruiting combine circuit. Garrett told Landof10 he’s had a few conversations about the Buckeyes with Davis.

    “(Davis) approached me about my thoughts about Ohio State,” Garrett shared. “I told him the facts, and honestly (Urban) Meyer’s reputation makes it so easy to get guys to consider us.”

    Garrett committed to Ohio State without ever visiting the school, though he made his first trip – a four-day visit – to Columbus in March. He’s 100-percent committed to the Buckeyes and is eager to help his class and their recruiting efforts in whatever way he can because he’s unlikely to get back to campus until the fall.

    “I’m most likely not going to get back there this summer,” Garrett said. “Maybe not until my official visit.”

    Haskell Garrett • Defensive lineman • Nike+ Rating: 103.56
    At 6-foot-2 and 292-pounds, Haskell Garrett showed all weekend why he’s the country’s fourth-ranked defensive tackle. He’s got a shockingly quick first step and uses his hands to create space very well. Garrett was a favorite target of the coaches in attendance who were trying to get him to change up a few of his technique things, and that may be why he didn’t make the Final 5 among the linemen, because he had a great day on Saturday. With a 4.46 in the pro-shuttle, a 5.15 in the 40 and a near 46-foot toss of the powerball, it was clear to see that Garrett’s got a bright future working with Larry Johnson.

    Two words: Pass Rusher
