Ohio State picked a verbal commitment from three-star safety Carlton Davis of Miami (Fla.) Norland on Monday evening, according to Scout.com's Corey Bender.

Davis hasn't yet been rated by Rivals.com, but he's clearly a coveted prospect considering his offer list. Before committing to the Buckeyes, Davis picked up offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson, Georgia, Louisville, LSU, Miami (Fla.), South Carolina and others.

Davis is commitment No. 15 for Ohio State, but it has met some scrutiny because the 6-foot-2, 178-pound prospect made an interesting statement shortly after pledging to the Buckeyes, telling SouthFloridaHighSchoolSports.com: "I'm committed to Ohio State, but my recruiting is still open."
