Ohio State lands second 5-star WR in two days

Five-star wideout Brandon Inniss committed to Ohio State on Tuesday, giving the Buckeyes their second top-3 pass catcher in two days.

Inniss, who plays at American Heritage in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is the nation’s No. 2 wide receiver and the 18th best prospect in the country in the Class of 2023, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.

On Monday, five-star wide receiver Carnell Tate of IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., committed to the Buckeyes. He’s the nation’s No. 3 wide receiver and the 28th best prospect in the country, per 247’s composite rankings.

Inniss originally committed to Oklahoma last August but reopened his commitment when then-Sooners coach Lincoln Riley left for Southern California after the season.

Inniss chose Ohio State over West Virginia, Wisconsin, Alabama and Oklahoma, among 37 offers.

“The fact that I will be coming into a great situation because for the position they want me to play they will be short at that spot, so coach (Ryan) Day and coach Hart (Brian Hartline) were telling me I would have to come in and contribute right away, not only telling me that, they showed me as well,” Inniss told 247Sports about his decision. “And the players on the team was already treating me like I’m one of them, not just a recruit.”
