The Bobcats have received a commitment from in-state defensive back Corey Quallen (Mason, Ohio/Mason), according to multiple sources.
Quallen, a 6-foot-1, 207-pound safety, selected Ohio over scholarship offers from Akron, Bowling Green, Eastern Illinois, Indiana State, Miami (Ohio) and Toledo. Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan State and Wisconsin showed interest.
Before his junior year, Quallen registered combine-verified figures including a 4.89 40-yard dash, 4.22 20-yard shuttle and 28-inch vertical.
Ohio now has 13 pledges.
