A senior season that did not see things go according to plan for Dublin (Ohio) Scioto safety prospect Bradley McDougald now has him seeking a new future. BuckeyeSports.com has learned that McDougald's commitment to Ohio State has been rescinded and his future now remains uncertain.

Dublin (Ohio) Scioto defensive back Bradley McDougald is no longer committed to Ohio State, BuckeyeSports.com has learned.

In an e-mail message, head coach Karl Johnson said the three-star safety prospect is no longer a verbal member of the Buckeyes’ recruiting class of 2009. Johnson also confirmed that McDougald took an official visit to Colorado during the Nov. 7 weekend, adding that it was a good visit.

McDougald initially committed to the Buckeyes on June 23, becoming the 21st member of the team’s class. A 6-1, 190-pound prospect, Scout.com ranks him as the No. 45 safety in the country.

Although his status has remained in question as his senior season has commenced, McDougald told BuckeyeSports.com in mid-October that he was still committed to the Buckeyes. However, he admitted to having interest in four other schools that were continuing to recruit him: Illinois, Kansas, Wisconsin and Colorado. He reported holding offers from each school.

A team captain this season, McDougald was suspended for three games this season for an unspecified violation but returned to action Oct. 3 and had three touchdowns in his team’s 43-7 victory against Westerville (Ohio) Central. The OSU coaches had encouraged McDougald not to talk about the suspension publicly, and he has been unavailable for comment.

With McDougald’s de-commitment, the Buckeyes now have 24 verbal members for their class of 2009.
