Nation's No. 1 OLB Dallas Gant announces his finalists, commitment date

Gant is rated as a four-star.

Not only does one of the top recruits of the 2018 class have his set of finalists, but he also has a date set for his commitment.

Four-star linebacker Dallas Gant (6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Toledo, OH) is rated as the No. 1 outside linebacker by the 247Sports player rankings, and on Monday, Gant released his Top 5 schools while also setting his commitment date.

Those five schools, in no particular order: Michigan, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Penn State. Gant will announce his commitment on May 16, which is his birthday.

"I kind of know where I'm going, but I'm going to take a few visits just to make sure," Gant told to 247Sports on Monday. Gant spoke highly of all five schools, but the home-state Buckeyes are seen as the current favorite.
