Bright House Sports and the Orlando Sentinel have both reported throughout the day that Florida punter Johnny Townsend will change his commitment from Ohio State to Alabama today.
Ohio State currently has 23 commitments in and are waiting on just Townsend and running back Ezekiel Elliott. Townsend is set to announce his decision at a 4 p.m. press conference. Elliott is announcing at 5 p.m.
If Ohio State loses out on Townsend, Drew Basil is expected to handle both kicking and punting.
The school is waiting to send out a release with its new recruits until they officially hear from Townsend and Elliott.
