    Marcelles Williams grew up rooting for USC.

    It makes sense, given the 2024 cornerback’s California roots. But lately, he’s developed a new allegiance.

    “I’ve recently been rooting for Ohio State though when they make the playoffs,” Williams told Eleven Warriors. “They’re usually the team I go for over like Clemson and Alabama. They’re DBU, basically. I’ve always rooted for the DB teams with all the corners and safeties.”

    The multitude of OSU defensive backs that have become NFL prospects was one of the biggest pitches Buckeyes defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs made to the St. John Bosco (Bellflower, California) product when he visited Columbus on June 17.

    “We talked a lot about football and a lot about Ohio State,” Williams said. “A lot about the things they could do for you. A little bit about technique and some of the corners that came from there and what they’re doing now.

    “Right when I got there, we went into meetings with the coaches. Coach Coombs, he talked about guys like Bradley Roby and what guys like that are doing now with their NFL team. He went over things they do that make them great.”

    By now, most OSU recruiting fans have heard the wild story of the Buckeyes offering Williams and three other defensive backs from his high school – Peyton Woodyard, RJ Jones, Jshawn Frausto-Ramos – on the same day.

    “It’s special,” Williams said of his high school teammates, all of whom are defensive backs. “We’re all teammates and all really close. We push each other at practice and we all make each other better. We just love competing with each other. I’d take my guys over anybody.”

    The St. John Bosco to Ohio State pipeline is already well-established. Current OSU safety Kourt Williams II played high school ball for the Braves, as did former Buckeye guard Wyatt Davis. Ohio State is also heavily recruiting current St. John Bosco offensive lineman Earnest Greene.

    Williams, who has 13 offers from different schools, said he is considering attending Ohio State’s home opener against Oregon on Sept. 11.
