Four-star Florida safety commits to Ohio State


COLUMBUS – Ohio State added to its already stellar 2018 recruiting class on Tuesday night when Florida safety Tyreke Johnson chose against 24 other offers.


Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes have held the No. 1 recruiting class for the entirety of this season. Recruits can sign as soon as Dec. 20.


Johnson, a four-star talent from Jacksonville, picked Ohio State over Clemson, Georgia, and Florida State, which he announced in a video. He also held offers from Alabama, Auburn, and Michigan, among others.

247Sports ranks Johnson as the fifth overall safety in his class and 38th-ranked player overall.

The Buckeyes, who already had the No. 1 ranked recruiting class in the country, further strengthened the group with Johnson’s pledge. Johnson became the program’s 19th commit, 11 of which are ranked in the top 100 in the country.

The first signing period begins Dec. 20 for football players.
