UK recruit Jantzen Dunn commits to Ohio State

The Bowling Green star is headed to the Big Ten.


Kentucky high school football star Jantzen Dunn has officially committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes. He made the announcement Monday via Twitter.

A four-star athlete from South Warren High School in Bowling Green (KY), Dunn had cut his list down to Miami, Georgia Tech, Louisville, USC, Tennessee, Ohio State, and Oklahoma before ultimately deciding to join the Buckeyes.

The combine-setting numbers that Dunn puts up are very impressive as he has posted a 4.54-second 40-yard dash, 40.8-inch vertical jump, a broad jump of over 10-feet, and a long jump of over 22-feet. Then when you take into account what he does on the field, you see why top programs wanted him at their school.

Dunn is currently rated as the No. 248 overall player in the country and the No. 15 athlete. He is also the No. 3 overall player in the state of Kentucky according to the 247 Sports Composite Player Rankings.

The 247 Sports network’s specific rankings have Dunn listed as the No. 146 overall player and the No. 7 athlete in the country while being the No. 1 player in Kentucky.

Dunn was one of Kentucky’s top targets in the Class of 2021, but beating Ohio State for a big-time recruit is about as difficult of a challenge as one can face on the recruiting trail.
