Banks (6-1 180) is a 4-star prospect from Jones High School in Orlando and is rated the No. 22 cornerback in the nation per the 247Sports Composite. He committed to Ohio State over offers from Florida State, Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Auburn, Notre Dame, and Kennesaw State.
Ohio State went into the spring having to replace just one linebacker from last season, but that one was a big one. Middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan is on his way to the NFL and now Chris Worley has stepped in for him. That was just one story of the spring, which featured new positions, injuries, and a good amount of depth.
