After the Buckeyes were favored in his recruitment, four-star linebacker K’Vaughan Pope finally confirmed the interested on Friday by announcing his commitment to Ohio State.
Ohio State had most of the predictions in the 247Sports Crystal Ball prior to the commitment, and only Florida and Georgia were seen as contenders to the Buckeyes.
After the commit, Pope becomes the 17th commitment for Ohio State’s 2018 class which already ranks No. 1 in the nation. Pope will 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.
