2018 3-star running back Master Teague commits to Ohio State over Georgia, Auburn, others

Teague chooses the Buckeyes over the Bulldogs and other SEC schools.

Class of 2018 running back Master Teague chose to commit to the Ohio State Buckeyes on Sunday afternoon. The Murfreesboro, Tennessee native announced the move in a video on his personal Twitter account.

Teague was pursued by a variety of SEC teams including the Georgia Bulldogs, South Carolina Gamecocks and Auburn Tigers. Urban Meyer and Ohio State offered Teague late in the game on June 9 after he attended their football camp, and just two days later, Teague was swayed into being a Buckeye.

This is certainly a tough miss for all SEC schools involved, as Teague is rated pretty favorably. He’s ranked 25th among running backs and is listed as the 14th-best player in the state of Tennessee. There is still plenty of talent (and time as well) on the board, so UGA, Auburn and others still have time to compensate.
