The Ohio State Buckeyes have gained a reputation for developing NFL-quality defenders. Jantzen Dunn is hoping to be the next to make the jump from Columbus to the pros.

The four-star defensive back shined at South Warren High School in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and the Buckeyes couldn’t be happier to lock down his commitment.

Like all four-star recruits, Jantzen Dunn had many offers to choose from.

Alabama, Boston College, Cincinnati, Eastern Kentucky, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas, and USC are just some of the schools that reached out to the stud safety.

Ultimately, Dunn couldn’t be taken away from OSU. He signed his LOI to join head coach Ryan Day’s recruiting class on National Signing Day.

Ohio State football has had a chokehold on the Big Ten for years now, and the Buckeyes’ dominance doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. The next step for this team is winning another College Football Playoff.

Dunn built relationships with defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs and safeties coach Matt Barnes, so it was easy for him to commit to the Buckeyes.

With enough development, he could turn into a future starter and possible star.

Jantzen Dunn Highlights 

Jantzen Dunn tracks the ball quite well and has no problem sticking with his coverage assignments. He worked as a wide receiver in high school, so he is using those skills to his advantage on the other side of the ball.

The 247Sports Composite is high on Dunn’s game, and their scouting report indicates that he could be a future NFL Draft pick. He is likely to stick at safety, but he could play cornerback adequately as well.

Will Jantzen Dunn become the newest standout for Ohio State? Only time will tell, but the Buckeyes’ “DBU” moniker exists for a reason.
