Todd Sibley Leaves Ohio State And Commits To Pitt Panthers

Ohio high school star Todd Sibley this week used his twitter account to officially announce he has de-committed from the Ohio State program.

Just one year after leading his Ohio team to a state championship, he has chosen to join the Pittsburgh based Pitt Panthers for 2017.

His prep career has seen him already rush over 3,000 yards, adding to his junior high school tally of over 2,000 yards. He first came to major attention after a champion's performance at the Friday Night Lights camp last year.

It's no surprise that Sibley has committed to Pittsburgh. After all, it was only April that the Ohio State coaching team informed him that he was likely to have to gray-shirt - at least for the first semester. This after being a fully committed player the previous year.

Sibley made his intentions clear via an unofficial visit to Pitt campus last week - after having also been in mid-May. No surprise then that earlier this afternoon he committed to play for Coach Narduzzi.

Many are now questioning which other recruits this might affect for the 2017 class. Although the Buckeyes currently have hard commits from 13 players, they do not include any running backs or players expected to fill in the h-back or tailback positions.

As for the Panthers, according to 247 Sports, Sibley's commitment means their recruiting class is now ranked 41st in the country. They also rank the Akron native as the country's 19th best running back and Ohio's 12th best protect.
