Pennsylvania athlete commits to Ohio State
Malik Hooker, a four-star prospect who plays both ways for New Castle (Pa.) High School, called Urban Meyer on Monday night to let the Ohio State coach he intends to be a Buckeye in 2014.
Hooker becomes the 15th member of Ohio State's current recruiting class and the second to join in as many days. Texas high school offensive lineman Demetrius Knox gave his pledge Sunday.
Scout.com ranks Hooker the No. 46 wide receiver in the country, but the 6-3, 185-pounder is expected to play defensive back for Ohio State.
He chose the Buckeyes out of a final six that also included Pittsburgh (his second choice), West Virginia, Michigan, Penn State and Virginia Tech.
He is the 10th out-of-state commitment for Meyer in this class.
