Four-star linebacker K’Vaughan Pope is set to commit on Friday at 6 p.m. ET, and it looks like a heavy favorite has emerged ahead of that time.
According to the 247Sports Crystal Ball, Ohio State holds 93-percent of the commitment predictions for Pope. The only other school that has a prediction on 247 for Pope is Florida. Georgia is also considered a contender thanks to a recent visit.
If he commits, Pope would become the 17th commitment for Ohio State’s 2018 class which already ranks No. 1 in the nation. Pope would be joining fellow inside linebacker Teradja Mitchell in the class; Mitchell ranks as the No. 2 inside linebacker in the nation.
Pope is a consensus four-star recruit, and he ranks as the No. 7 inside linebacker per the 247Sports Composite.
