ESPNU 150 defensive end Se'Von Pittman (Canton, Ohio/McKinley) has decommitted from Michigan State and given Ohio State his verbal pledge, multiple sources report. He is the second ESPNU 150 prospect to leave a Big Ten foe Monday night for the Buckeyes. Defensive tackle Tommy Schutt (Glen Ellyn, Ill./Glenbard West) switched from Penn State earlier this evening.
Pittman, who originally committed to the Spartans in June, also received scholarship offers from Auburn, Florida, Notre Dame, Michigan, West Virginia, Alabama and Tennessee among others.
The Buckeyes now have 18 commitments and will likely receive a bump up in ESPNU's next class rankings update. Ohio State has secured three ESPNU 150 prospects, all along the defensive line.
