Ohio State continued its recruiting success as five-star cornerback Na’eem Offord committed to the Buckeyes on Sunday.

Offord is the No. 6 prospect in the 2025 class and the top-ranked cornerback. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound recruit from Birmingham, Alabama, chose the Buckeyes over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Tennessee and a handful of others.

He took a visit to Ohio State with his family this weekend and committed while on the trip.

His commitment gives the Buckeyes seven ESPN Junior 300 commitments in the 2025 cycle, and he is the third cornerback. Offord is the highest-ranked commit for Ohio State, ahead of cornerbacks Devin Sanchez, ranked No. 11 overall, and Blake Woodby, the No. 28 prospect in the class.

The staff is off to a fast start with the 2025 class and already has one of the best classes now that Offord is on board.
