Jaheim Singletary 2022 Cornerback for Ohio State

Tags: , , , , , ,

Robert E Lee Jackson Florida corner-back Jaheim Singletary committed to play football at Ohio State in 2022 the day after the Buckeyes took down Clemson in the Sugar Bowl in dramatic fashion (49-28). The 5 star prospect is considered the 5th best corner in the country for the class and the 2nd best overall prospect in Florida. Tony Alford and Kerry Coombs recruited Singletary for Ohio State who just signed a 2nd best 2021 class with 6 defensive backs to replace the depth that has left for the NFL year-after-year.

What Singletary Offers Ohio State

Considered a big corner at 6’1” 170lbs and a 74” wingspan. Can cover a side of the field at the high school level. As a junior he had 3 interceptions and 6 defended passes while be thrown away from often. He had 8 interceptions as a freshman. Has the potential to be a first round draft pick according to many scouts.

He had offers from Clemson, Auburn, Georgia and Florida among many others but was considered a lock for the Buckeyes since early December. He is the big corner that coach Coombs is always looking to recruit. Shawn Wade, another corner from Jacksonville, is similar in talent and size, started in the slot and then moved to the outside position later in his career.

What Jaheim Singletary Liked at OSU

Singletary liked what the coaches at Ohio State had to offer their players, the culture and the chance to get to the professional league. Coach Alford was very real, coach Coombs brought the energy and Ryan Day was relentless, calling everyday during the recruitment.

Ohio State 2022 Class

Singletary becomes the 10th member of the class which includes the #1 quarterback in Quinn Ewers and five star wide receiver Caleb Burton among other top prospects. The 2022 class at OSU is currently considered the best in the country.

NFL Draft (2)

NOTE: On NNR Samantha Bunten of NBC Sports and I discussed the news of the day and broke down the Browns defense in detail.

As wide receivers get bigger and bigger there are some that only want cornerbacks that are 6 foot and taller. But others want the 4.3 guys that generally are under 6 foot tall. Which is right depends a lot on what kind of defense pass coverage a team uses.

NFL teams that play mostly zone coverage can use corners that are a little slower. The reason is that a corner covers a relatively small area of the field that limits the need for top speed. That allows those teams to take taller corners that run 4.4 or 4.5 40’s.

Teams that play mostly man coverage require their corners to have more speed. If that means that their corners are a little shorter so be it. The speed is necessary because they have to cover receivers all over the field.

Despite what Browns GM Ray Farmer believes, the league relies more and more on tall fast receivers. That puts a lot of pressure on defenses in general and corners in particular.

That is what I think. Tell us what you think by commenting here or tweeting me @NNRonDSN.
