Ohio State added the seventh commitment to its 2019 recruiting class when three-star safety Bryson Shaw announced his pledge to the Buckeyes Saturday night.
Shaw had been committed to Wisconsin since Jan. 27, but the Buckeyes managed to flip him. He is the first player in his to slip to Ohio State. Shaw cited the need to be closer to his family as a reason for him switching his commitment to the Buckeyes.

The lowest rated player in the Buckeyes’ seven-player class, Shaw is the 660th-best overall player and the 53rd-ranked safety in the country, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
He plays football for The Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland, which is where redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins and redshirt sophomore linebacker Keandre Jones played. Shaw is the No. 13-ranked player in Maryland.
Along with his football prowess, Shaw is a top-ranked high-school lacrosse recruit. He committed to Maryland to play the sport as a freshman.
