Ohio State added the program’s fourth commitment in the last three days on Sunday, earning a verbal pledge from Wayne (N.J.) DePaul Catholic four-star safety DeShawn Stewart (6-2, 185).

Stewart is the No. 284 overall prospect and No. 24 safety in 2025, and is the teammate of fellow Buckeye pledge and four-star wide receiver De’Zie Jones (6-0, 180), who committed to Ohio State on Saturday. Stewart was offered by the Buckeyes in January.

He had 56 tackles (one for loss) and 19 pass breakups last season for DePaul Catholic and offers versatility for Guerrieri and defensive coordinator Jim Knowles, able to play all over the secondary. As a sophomore, Stewart also had 26 tackles, six pass breakups and three interceptions.

Stewart is the first pledge at safety in what should be an impressive class for the Buckeyes, as Ohio State and new safeties coach Matt Guerrieri continue to pursue Olney (Md.) Good Counsel five-star Faheem Delane (6-2, 195) and Cleveland Shaker Heights four-star Trey McNutt (6-0, 180).
