Although he was previously slated to play in the Under Armour All-America Game this January, West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West four-star cornerback Jyaire Brown announced on Friday afternoon that he will play in the 2022 All-American Bowl instead.
The 6-foot-0 and 178-pound Brown, who is considered the 13th-best cornerback and No. 121 prospect overall in the class of 2022, committed to Ohio State in April 2020, just five days after he landed an offer from the Buckeyes.
A Cincinnati native, Brown moved to Louisiana when he was 4 years old but transferred to Lakota West last summer, where he’s now teammates with four-star offensive tackle commit Tegra Tshabola. He was named first-team all-state last fall after leading the Firebirds to the Division I regional final.
Brown becomes the sixth Ohio State pledge to commit to the All-American Bowl, joining Tshabola; Southlake (Texas) Carroll five-star quarterback Quinn Ewers; Austin (Texas) Lake Travis five-star wide receiver Caleb Burton; Chicago St. Rita four-star wide receiver Kaleb Brown; and Chandler, Ariz., four-star wide receiver Kyion Grayes.
The 2022 All-American Bowl is set to take play at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, on Jan. 8. It will be broadcast live on NBC at 12 p.m. ET.
