Days after landing the nation’s top safety out of Texas, the Ohio State Buckeyes secured another huge play in landing Blinn College cornerback Kendall Sheffield, according to ESPN’s Gerry Hamilton.

The decision ended the outside hopes of the Texas Longhorns following an offer from head coach Tom Herman upon his arrival in Austin and several out-of-nowhere Crystal Ball picks just before Christmas that sparked some optimism.

But once again, Sheffield made his decision without giving Texas serious consideration, just like his initial recruitment out of Fort Bend Marshall in the 2015 class that resulted in Sheffield signing with the Alabama Crimson Tide.

The nation’s No. 1 junior college cornerback left Tuscaloosa in August before spending the football season in Brenham.

In addition to Sheffield, Ohio State holds pledges from the aforementioned Jeffrey Okudah, running back JK Dobbins, and linebacker Baron Browning.
