Five-star offensive tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere of Berkeley Prep (Tampa, Fla.) announced in a ceremony at school on Wednesday that he is committing to Ohio State.

The nation’s No. 7 recruit according to the USA TODAY High School Sports football composite player rankings, Petit-Frere also had Alabama, Florida, Michigan and Notre Dame as his finalists.
