Ohio State has lost two commitments from the 2020 recruiting class since Urban Meyer announced his retirement on Tuesday. The first to depart from the class was ESPN Junior 300 safety Lejond Cavazos, and now ESPN Jr. 300 offensive lineman Jake Wray has also backed off his commitment to the Buckeyes.
With Cavazos and Wray's decommitments, Ohio State now has five commitments in the 2020 class, four of which are ranked in the ESPN Jr. 300.
Wray is the No. 56-ranked prospect in the 2020 class and had been committed to Ohio State since April. The Marietta, Georgia, prospect said in his statement that a big part of his decision to commit early was that there were no major coaching changes.
While Wray decided to decommit, he has not ruled out Ohio State as a potential final landing spot.
The decision was especially difficult, he noted, because his brother, Max, is a freshman offensive lineman on the Ohio State roster. With his family ties to the program, it isn't out of the question that the younger Wray could end up committing to the Buckeyes again.
