Tavion Thomas, Dunbar’s highly sought-after senior running back, ended the suspense and committed to the Cincinnati Bearcats on Wednesday afternoon.
Thomas had de-committed to Oklahoma, then listed Cincinnati, Tennessee, Ohio State and Oklahoma as his final four teams.
Dunbar’s signing ceremony was postponed from Wednesday until 3:15 p.m. Thursday because all Dayton Public Schools were closed because of snow. Thomas will sign his letter-of-intent on Thursday.
Multiple recruiting services reported a planned visit to OSU was canceled last weekend, making him unlikely to sign with the Buckeyes.
Thomas, 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, is the 13th-ranked player in Ohio in the Class of 2018, according to the 247Sports composite.
