Jordan Battle has long been one of the top-rated commitments in Ohio State's 2019 recruiting class. In fact, the St. Thomas Aquinas four-star had been the highest rated defensive pledge for some time now; dating all the way back to his commitment on June 29.
That commitment is no more and the Buckeyes will need to find someone to replace the prized defender.
It's been a long few months and the Urban Meyer suspension and retirement have caused some doubt surrounding Battle's recruitment. He took an early official visit to Ohio State back in June, but since that time has made trips to Miami, Oklahoma, and most recently Alabama. Due to his team's playoff run, getting back to Columbus has proven difficult.
