    CHATTER AROUND CHATFIELD

    With Ohio State holding commitments from defensive ends Brenton Cox and Andrew Chatfield and awaiting decisions from priority targets Micah Parsons, Tyreke Smith and Jayson Oweh in the coming months, there's been a lot of skepticism about how the staff could take as many as five players at the position — it's possible, but highly unlikely.

    Thus Chatfield, who recently visited and was offered by Florida, has become a trendy pick to flip his pledge to the Gators.

    It should come as no surprise, then, that the 6-foot-2, 221-pound Chatfield — who was one of 800 athletes from more than 100 schools across South Florida to attend the Miami Dolphins' annual high school media day — was asked about his commitment to Ohio State and interest in Florida this weekend.

    “I am committed, so I am 100 percent,” Chatfield told reporters gathered at the event. “You know, I made a choice. The coaches don't mind me visiting and seeing other schools.”

    The trip to Gainesville for the Gators' rendition of Friday Night Lights was notable because Chatfield did not have an offer from any of the major Sunshine State schools — Florida, Florida State or Miami — at the time of his pledge. The chatter will only be amplified if the Hurricanes or Seminoles enter the fray, too.

    Chatfield added that he plans to take additional visits this fall, including to Columbus for either the Oklahoma or Penn State game, but it'll be interesting to see how things unfold if Smith or Parsons make the call sooner rather than later. Oweh, meanwhile, won't announce until January, so the situation may already have itself settled by then.

    Are the Buckeyes still recruiting Andrew Chatfield?

    Ohio State has just one de-commitment thus far in the Class of 2018, which is pretty good considering the distance and challenges associated with so many of their current verbals.

    The one guy to get in and then out of the class is Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage defensive end Andrew Chatfield, who re-opened his recruitment in early August, a decision many people felt was in response to the University of Florida finally coming through with a scholarship offer. Chatfield had been waiting for one of the “big three” in Florida to make a move, and when the Gators did they surged into the lead position in his recruitment, despite Chatfield being committed to the Buckeyes.

    Since then, things between Ohio State and the country’s No. 16-ranked weak-side defensive end have been pretty quiet, but there’s still communication happening.

    On Tuesday, SEC Country’s Sam Spiegelman was in Florida. He spoke with Chatfield on behalf of Land of 10.

    “[Ohio State] has always been open,” Chatfield told him. “They’re still open and trying to see what I’m doing and everything. I’m just trying to be more patient and find the right fit for me.”

    There’s been some discussion about a potential official visit to Columbus. He says the Buckeyes, along with LSU, Florida, Oklahoma and Oregon, are the teams he’s talking to the most.

    “[The Buckeyes] just tell me they’re still open for me,” he said. “They tell me to do what I’ve got to do.”

    Chatfield flipped to Florida where he redshirted his first year - getting into two games. This season he has played little and has two tackles.
