Urban Meyer flips another recruit

1/15/2012

New Ohio State coach Urban Meyer picked up the fourth commitment of his short tenure on Sunday when he flipped another commitment.

Three-star offensive tackle Taylor Decker (Vandalia, Ohio/Butler) confirmed via text message to ESPN.com that he decommitted from Notre Dame and committed to Ohio State on Sunday on official visit to Columbus.

Decker is the third commit to switch allegiances since Meyer was named the Buckeyes' coach in late December. ESPNU 150 defensive linemen Se'Von Pittman and Tommy Schutt decommitted from Michigan State and Penn State, respectively, and verbally committed to Ohio State.

New Ohio State offensive line coach Ed Warriner was set to be Decker's position coach at Notre Dame, but Warriner was introduced as the Buckeyes' line coach on Jan. 12.

Decker is the Buckeyes' 20th commitment and first offensive tackle, a position the Buckeyes are looking to take as many as three recruits at.
