The story of Alex Anzalone’s decommitment from Ohio State is a weird one. That sentence isn’t of the highest literary quality, but there’s really no better way to say it. The entire situation is odd and gives off a feeling of, well, let’s just move on from the reasons behind Anzalone’s decommitment. You’ve surely read about them by now and that’ll do. The latest chapter is that the Buckeyes may still have a chance with the four-star outside linebacker.
When Anzalone first announced he would not be attending Ohio State, two schools came to the forefront – Penn State and our beloved Florida Gators. You can add Notre Dame and Stanford to that list, and now the Buckeyes as well. There were times when Anzalone was considered a Florida lean before he originally committed to Ohio State, and after the decommitment, it was figured the Buckeyes were out of the picture. While the Gators and Nittany Lions seem to have a definite advantage over the others at the moment, with even the possibility he could consider Ohio State again, no one can be sure which direction Anzalone is now leaning.
We do know he’ll take time to explore every option and weigh his decision heavily this time around. A great addition to any program, all five of the schools named would welcome Anzalone with open arms and with Ohio State still a possibility, the probability he ends up picking the Gators may have taken a hit.
