Ohio State’s top-ranked recruiting class suffered another blow on Early Signing Day after five-star safety Jaiden Woodbey decommitted from the Buckeyes and submitted his letter of intent to Florida State.
Woodbey committed to Ohio State on Feb. 7, and maintained that commitment until Wednesday.
He is the 27th-best prospect in the nation and second-best safety in the 2018 class, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. The site also lists him as the No. 2 prospect in the state of California.
Ohio State had depth in its recruiting class at the safety position, having added a pair of four-star prospects in Tyreke Johnson and Josh Proctor. Johnson is listed as the 41st-best prospect nationally and fifth-best at his position, while Proctor is the No. 76 prospect in the country and the No. 8 safety.
