The No. 1 recruit for the class of 2021 is headed to Ohio State. J.T. Tuimoloau, a defensive end from Sammamish, Washington, committed to the Buckeyes on Sunday. He announced his commitment on CBS Sports Network.
Tuimoloau chose Ohio State over Washington, Oregon, and USC after being heavily recruited by OSU defensive line coach Larry Johnson who has coached first-round NFL draft picks like Nick and Joey Bosa, Chase Young, and Sam Hubbard.
