Shaun Wade, a five-star Ohio State University commit, was just named USA Today’s Defensive Player of the Year. The cornerback/wide receiver played for Trinity Christian in Jacksonville, FL and helped to get the team their fourth consecutive State Championship.
As you can tell in the video below, Shaun is a two-way stud. On offense, he makes plays from the backfield and lined up as wide receiver. And on defense? You better hope that your high school QB throws the ball on a dime otherwise it’s getting batted or picked off. Shaun recorded a total of 63 tackles and 7 interceptions during the 2016 season.
The Buckeyes are going to need that kind of production from their pass defense considering that both of their starting cornerbacks might be leaving after this season.
