Top Maryland target Noah Spence, the top-ranked high school defensive end in the country, committed to Ohio State today.
Spence was long-rumored to be down to Penn State and Maryland, but after OSU hired Urban Meyer the Buckeyes reportedly shot up his list. He visited the campus this past weekend and has now reportedly committed to the school.
Maryland was considered to have a chance thanks to the positive relationship they had with Spence’s father and due to the fact that one of Spence’s good friends, linebacker Brock Dean, is a member of Maryland’s 2012 football class.
There was hope with Spence for a while, but ever since the Buckeyes hired Meyer, the Terps’ chances dwindled. On to the next one.
