Brandon Inniss, 5-star wide receiver, 'locked in' on Ohio State Buckeyes commitment despite Alabama, Miami push

American Heritage High School (Florida) wide receiver Brandon Inniss is excited for his future in Columbus

For the truly elite high school football players, the recruiting process doesn't stop until they write their signature on a binding National Letter of Intent.

Even after they have verbally committed to a program, other schools will still try to lure them away until pen touches paper.

Unsurprisingly, that's the case for American Heritage (Florida) five-star wide receiver Brandon Inniss, the nation's No. 19 overall prospect and  No. 3 pass-catcher.

The 6-foot, 190-pound athlete decommitted from Oklahoma hours after Lincoln Riley's departure to USC and he began the process anew, choosing the Ohio State Buckeyes in June. 

Lately, both Alabama and Miami have been making a run at the dynamic pass-catcher, but he let it be known he's all set on a future with the Buckeyes.

"I'm locked in," Inniss said. "I mean, I've got to show loyalty when they show loyalty to me."

In fact, he's taking just one visit the rest of the fall.

Inniss is hoping to be in Columbus for the November 26 matchup against rival Michigan. 

In true Ohio State fashion, Inniss declined to actually say "Michigan," but made it clear that was the game to which he was referring.

Sometimes the best recruiting news isn't a new commitment.

It's that top commitments are solid.

Despite attempts from Alabama and Miami to flip him, Inniss is a future Buckeye.
