Wade is the 13th overall played in the Class of 2017, according to 247Sports. He is the No. 2 overall cornerback and the third-best player from the state of Florida.
Even with offers from Alabama, Florida, Notre Dame, Florida State, Stanford, Virginia Tech, Akron, Clemson, Duke FIU, Florida Atlantic, Georgia, Georgia Southern, Indiana, Kentucky, Miami (FL), Michigan, North Carolina, Old Dominion, Ole Miss, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, South Alabama, Tulane, UCLA, USF, Utah, and Wisconsin, Wade decided to commit to Ohio State on January 12, 2015. He was recruited to play for the Buckeyes by Tim Hinton and Greg Schiano.
“They were recruiting me early and it felt like home,” Wade said, along with mentioning that he does not know if he will flip his commitment.
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound receiver has been talking to schools like Florida and Notre Dame, which means there could be a three way battle between those two schools and Michigan to flip one of the nations top defensive backs. Do not be surprised if Alabama joins the mix.
Wade is a very unique athlete because he will be competing at Nike’s Peach Jam and The Opening. The Peach Jam in North August, South Carolina and The Opening in Beaverton, Oregon are on the same set of days following the 4th of July.
The Ohio State commit will compete at The Peach Jam on Wednesday and Thursday, then will work out at The Opening on Friday and through the weekend. While Wade has talent on the basketball court and the football field, his future is involves a helmet and pads.
“He is going to the Peach Jam for two days,” Randy Wade, Shaun’s father, told Land of 10. “Then he’ll head to The Opening. … We’ve got to do what’s best for Shaun. The Opening is a once in a lifetime event and the Peach Jam is too.”
Michigan will hope to see the defensive back in Ann Arbor, Michigan for the BBQ at the Big House in early August.
