Ohio State's big recruiting weekend got off to a quick start on Friday when 4-star athlete Sam Hubbard (via 247Sports.com) offered his verbal commitment to Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes, according to Doug Lesmerises of The Plain Dealer.

Hubbard, a 6'6" safety out of Cincinnati, announced the big news via Twitter Friday evening.

The 4-star prospect recently decommited from Notre Dame, where he had pledged to play for the Fighting Irish's lacrosse team. Hubbard committed to the Irish in January of his sophomore year because football scholarship offers weren't rolling in.

That changed recently as schools like Michigan, Michigan State, Stanford, Louisville and Miami began recruiting the Cincinnati product. Hubbard has received 10 scholarship offers since February 26, according to 247Sports.com.

It didn't take long for Hubbard to pull the trigger, though, as he announced his commitment just hours after arriving on Ohio State's campus for his unofficial visit.

Hubbard is the sixth member of the Buckeyes' 2014 recruiting class, joining 4-star offensive guard Marcelys Jones, 4-star cornerback Damon Webb, 4-star offensive tackle Kyle Trout, 4-star athlete Parris Campbell and 3-star defensive end Dylan Thompson (all via 247Sports.com).

Although Hubbard plays safety in high school, he projects as either a linebacker or defensive end at the collegiate level. Hubbard's versatility helped him rack up 80 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles playing at Moeller High School last season.
