Ohio State loses the commitment of a top linebacker recruit.
Alex Anzalone, a top linebacker recruit, has decommitted from Ohio State just weeks after committing to the Buckeyes. Out of Wyomissing (Pa.) High School, Anzalone is a consensus four-star recruit. He holds offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Boston Coll., Colorado, Connecticut, Duke, Florida, Florida St., Georgia, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan St., North Carolina, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Penn St., Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina, Stanford, Syracuse, Temple, USC, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.
Anzalone was one of the recruits involved in a bizarre situation with a convicted sex offender and Ohio State fan by the name of Charles Eric Waugh. It is unknown if that situation had anything to do with Anzalone's decommitment.
The decommitment was first reported by Rivals' Mike Farrell:
