Ohio State football: 5-Star CB commit Shaun Wade named Defensive Player Of The Year

On Wednesday morning, five-star cornerback Shaun Wade was named the American Family Insurance All-USA Defensive Player of the Year by USA TODAY Sports.

Last week, quarterback Tate Martell was named the Gatorade High School Football National Player of the Year.

Both Wade and Martell are among the many talented players in Ohio State’s incredible 2017 recruiting class. And there may be more talent headed to Columbus, as Martell says the Buckeyes will add at least two more five-star recruits before the recruiting cycle ends.

It’s a good time to be an Ohio State fan.
