The recruiting rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan is as intense as the one on the field.
Tuesday, the Buckeyes almost literally went into The Big House, getting a commitment from 2017 athlete Antjuan Simmons. He attends Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor, which is almost across the street from Michigan Stadium. The school’s street address is West Stadium Boulevard.
Simmons is 6-1, 205 and plays multiple positions. Rivals has him ranked as the No. 11 player in Michigan and No. 27 outside linebacker overall in the Class of 2017. Others have him rated as a running back.
He had 40 offers, including virtually every school in the Midwest.
Simmons becomes the 12th commitment for Ohio State, which is leading the nation in 2017 commits.
