Ohio State is close to adding defensive back Brandon Underwood to their list of verbal commitments.
Sources said Underwood was close to a decision, however he could not be reached to confirm late Tuesday night that he had selected Ohio State over Notre Dame, Iowa, and a host of others.
The 6-foot-1 and 170 pound Underwood, from Hamilton, Ohio, made 50 tackles and intercepted 3 passes during his junior season. Underwood was a second team all-conference selection. His brother E.J. is a defensive back for the Buckeyes.
