Late last month, Tommy Schutt said he was sticking by his commitment to Penn State, but was taking a wait-and-see approach.

He apparently has seen enough.

Schutt, one of the nation's top defensive tackles, has switched his commitment to Ohio State after a weekend campus visit, according to Rivals.com.

Schutt, 6-3 and 301 from Glen Ellyn, Ill., is ranked as the top player in Illinois.

"I am really glad I made the official visit," Schutt said, according to the website. "I am excited under the circumstances and I am excited things worked out and I am happy to be a Buckeye."

He is the fourth player to decommit from Penn State in the wake of the child sex-abuse scandal. Offensive tackle Joey O'Connor, from Windsor, Colo., decommitted days after Joe Paterno was fired in early November, and tight end J.P Holtz, from Shaler, Pa., followed in early December. Linebacker Bryton Barr, from Mechanicsburg, one of the top linebackers in Pennsylvania, also decomitted. He accepted an offer as a preferred walk-on after turning down 10 scholarship offers.

Other players are wavering, taking visits to other schools. Linebacker Nyeem Wartman, of Archbald, Pa., remains committed to Penn State, but reportedly is looking at Rutgers and Pitt.
