After de-committing from the Wisconsin football program, Cody Haddad has decided to join the Ohio State Buckeyes, making the announcement on social media. This follows a series of offers from schools such as Iowa, Michigan State, Indiana, and Minnesota, with Ohio State being the first to extend an offer after his initial commitment to Wisconsin. Haddad's move to Ohio State has solidified their position with the No. 1 recruiting class in the country, while Wisconsin is regrouping after recent setbacks on the 2025 recruiting trail.

By the Numbers
  • Haddad is ranked as the No. 519 player in the nation, the No. 30 ATH, and the No. 16 player in Ohio.
  • Ohio State now has the No. 1 recruiting class in the country with 13 verbal commits.
State of Play
