On Tuesday morning, four-star quarterback Deondre Francois of Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy was set to take an unofficial visit to Ohio State on Wednesday. By the evening, Francois' visit was cancelled.

Rated by Rivals.com the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback in the 2015 class, Francois was on a visit to Auburn Tuesday morning when he announced his trip to Tennessee had been cancelled.

Reasons for why Francois cancelled his trip to Columbus have yet to be confirmed, but Rivals' recruiting analyst Marc Givler insinuated on his public Twitter profile that the Buckeyes' coaching staff was unaware of his visit.
