Walsh, Huhn, Traylor-Bennett among athletes who switch commitments

Some of the top central Ohio football recruits from the 2013 class, like Jake Butt and Taco Charlton, have already enrolled at Michigan after verbally committing nearly a year ago.

Others, like Godwin Igwebuike, have known their decision for months and will be among those celebrated on national signing day Feb. 6.

Then there are guys like Dublin Coffman QB James Walsh, Pickerington North OL Chris Huhn and Reynoldsburg S Mykel Traylor-Bennett, who seemingly had made their choices long ago but have recently flipped.

Walsh told one of my fellow reporters that the offer to switch from Ohio University to Boston College was something he couldn't pass up, which makes perfect sense. If you've got a choice (and with no disrespect meant here) between a MAC school and the ACC to play quarterback, especially a school that produced Matt Ryan, you're not going to pass it up.

Huhn originally verballed to Western Kentucky but will now play for Marshall.

"I switched due to the new staff at WKU," Huhn said. "I love the players, coaches and the tradition at Marshall."

Then there's Traylor-Bennett, who originally verballed to Cincinnati before that school's coaching change. According to Scout.com, he switched to Kent State in early January.

But then on his Twitter page last night, he said he'll be going to Akron.

It's a crazy time for senior football players.

Who knows how much more might change over the next few days?
