Ohio State last landed the No. 1 cornerback in the country in 2017 when five-star Jeff Okudah committed to the Buckeyes.

Offord reportedly visited Ohio State over the weekend after a trip last June.

Tuimoloau (No. 4), five-star defensive lineman Jack Sawyer (No. 5) and five-star wide receiver Emeka Egbuka (No. 10).
