Four star safety prospect Jantzen Dunn committed to the Ohio State University yesterday to add to their already outstanding 2021 class. The prospect from South Warren KY high school made the announcement on Twitter. Current Michigan State wide receiver CJ Hayes came out of South Warren.
A number of schools were pursing Dunn including Oklahoma, Tennessee, USC, Louisville, Miami, Ohio State and Georgia Tech. Reports had Dunn going to Oklahoma a week ago and then a sudden flip to Ohio State. Coach Lincoln Riley, Oklahoma, made a post on Twitter over the weekend indicating that Dunn was a done deal going to the Sooners. But Ohio State got into action shortly there-after and told Dunn that he was a top priority and he changed his mind.
The Jantzen Dunn Recruitment
Dunn made two visits to Columbus prior to his commitment. He came and watched the Penn State game in November when he did not have an offer (Ohio State beat the Nittany Lions 28-17). He returned again at the beginning of March when he did get a scholarship offer from Ryan Day. He did not make any visits to Oklahoma.
