09:32 AM ET 05.05 | Alex Anzalone, a linebacker from Wyomissing, Pa., who had committed to the Ohio State 2013 recruiting class, changed his mind yesterday after learning that an OSU fan he encountered in Columbus two weeks ago is a registered sex offender. Anzalone was vague about exactly why he decommitted, but his father made it clear that it was partly related to the encounter with Ohio State fan Charles Eric Waugh of Ashland, Ky., the weekend of the spring game. His father, Sal, was more specific in an interview with the Reading (Pa.) Eagle. He said that Alex started expressing concerns about Ohio State after returning, and the tipping point was when they saw the photo online. It made Sal question how well his son was supervised during the visit. Anzalone was highly recruited before he selected the Buckeyes, and now he can consider offers from more than 30 schools, including Penn State, Alabama, Florida and Notre Dame.

Sounds like they made a mistake and are using this as an excuse to opt out.

I'm sure there's an axe-murderer and a terrorist lurking out there in BuckeyeNation as well. Social media (Twitter, Facebook, et al) puts the unsuspecting and naive at risk by these predators.Alex Anzalone's dad hinted to ESPN that they might reconsider tOSU. Just not right now.

This rules out the entire west coast...California, Oregon, and Washington lead the nation in sex offenders per capita....

PSU = do I really have to say why he shouldn't go here if he's upset about a tOSU registered sex offender?

Bammer = would you wanna work for Satan?

ND = if you want to freeze your tuckus off, and have your hearing permanently impaired from a HC yelling in your ear, here's your chance to get both

UF = a team that needs help, will love you forever if you play well, is warm all year long, and has enough sweet young thangs to keep you busy for 4 years.


Hmmmm, tough decision, dude. Good luck. :-)

Lets see a Kentucky sex offender...I am sure he was safe unless he looked like his cousin/sister.
