2022 Ohio State Cornerback Target Toriano Pride Sets Commitment Date

Pride was among the handful of priority targets on campus for Buckeye Bash 2.0 earlier this month.
Publish date:

St. Louis Lutheran North four-star cornerback Toriano Pride announced this afternoon that he will make his college decision among Clemson, Missouri, Ohio State and Oregon on June 18.

The 5-foot-11 and 172-pound Pride – who is considered the 23rd-best cornerback and No. 187 prospect overall in the class of 2022 – visited all four schools this month, including an official visit with the Buckeyes on June 4-6 alongside several commitments and top targets.

"It was fun," Pride told SI All-American. "It was real good. I got to meet the players, hang out with them and meet the coaches finally. They really showed that you’re a priority and they want you. Based off the time of us building this relationship for a year and a half, they’ve always made me feel like a priority with how consistent they are with me."

Pride’s recruitment has long been viewed as a battle between Clemson and Ohio State, so it wasn’t a surprise to see that several 247Sports crystal ball predictions were placed in favor of the Tigers following his official visit on June 11-13.

If Pride picks Clemson, as expected, Ohio State will continue to recruit other cornerbacks in hopes of landing one more player at the position alongside Jacksonville Robert E. Lee five-star Jaheim Singletary, West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West four-star Jyaire Brown and Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna three-star Ryan Turner.

Notable targets include Mission Hills (Calif.) Bishop Alemany four-star Ephesians Prysock, Denton (Texas) Ryan four-star Austin Jordan and Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic three-star Jayden Bellamy. The first two were on campus for their official visits this past weekend, while Bellamy is scheduled to take his later this month.
