Ohio State received a significant win on the recruiting trail on Saturday, as Houston North Shore five-star cornerback Devin Sanchez (6-2, 170) announced his pledge to the Buckeyes as the All-American Bowl.

Sanchez is the sixth-ranked player in 2025 and the second overall cornerback in the class, and he chose Ohio State over Alabama and Texas A&M.

“The relationship I’ve built with Coach (Tim) Walton,” Sanchez said when asked why he chose Ohio State. “They make it feel like home every time I’m down there. From the first day I get there on campus, I think I’ll make a big impact.”

He was offered by the Buckeyes last January and has since taken several visits to Columbus while building a relationship with Walton, and looks forward to competing once he arrives on campus.

“An Ohio State cornerback, he’s good at everything,” Sanchez said this past summer. “You can press, play off, that’s what they like to do. If you can do all of that and be great at it, you’ve got a chance to be on that cornerback wall and you’ve got a chance to be DBU here. There’s not that many schools where you can call it DBU, but Ohio State’s probably the No. 1 school. Just look at the guys in the league. It speaks for itself.”

Sanchez is the fifth commitment in Ohio State’s 2025 recruiting class and the second in the secondary, joining Baltimore (Md.) St. Frances Academy four-star cornerback Blake Woodby (5-11, 175). The Buckeyes also continued to pursue Indianapolis Ben Davis four-star cornerback Mark Zackery IV (5-11, 164), among others.
