An Ohio high school star that led his team to a state championship a year ago, has officially decommitted from the Ohio State program.

Four-star running back Todd Sibley of Archbishop Hoban High School, officially announced on his twitter account today that he has decided to take his talents to Pittsburgh as a member of the Panthers’ Class of 2017.

Sibley, who ran for over 2,000 yards during his junior high school campaign, already has over 3,000 yards rushing during his prep career. He burst onto the Ohio State recruiting scene after committing and putting together a great showing at last year’s Friday Night Lights camp.

The process to committing to Pittsburgh should come as a surprise. After spending a year as a fully committed player to the Ohio State program, the Ohio State coaching staff told Sibley in April that he would more thank likely need to grayshirt for his first semester at the very least, if he were to attend Ohio State and be a part of the Buckeye program.

After those discussions, Sibley took an unofficial visit to the Pitt campus in mid-May. He also went on another unofficial visit last week, before committing to play for Coach Narduzzi earlier this afternoon.

Many questions since then have been asked about the recruiting process for the Class of 2017 and what other recruits it could possibly affect.

According to 247 Sports, the Buckeyes currently have 13 players as hard commits in the class. None of those prospects are running backs or project to play at the tailback or h-back positions for Urban Meyer.

With the commitment of Sibley, the Panthers now have the 41st ranked recruiting class in the country heading into the summer months, according to 247 Sports. The Akron native is also ranked by them as the 12th best prospect from the state of Ohio and the 19th best running back in the country.
