Watch: The Moment Tommy Togiai Commits to Ohio State

Tommy Togiai Idaho State Journal


Army All-American defensive tackle Tommy Togiai committed to Ohio State on Tuesday.

Togiai — the top player in the state of Idaho — is ranked the No. 9 defensive tackle in the 247Sports Composite and is the third blue-chip defensive tackle in OSU’s 2018 recruiting class.

Togiai joins No. 1 defensive tackle Taron Vincent and No. 2 JUCO defensive tackle Antwuan Jackson, who spent his freshman season redshirting at Auburn before transferring to Blinn Community College.

Buckeye head coach Urban Meyer and defensive line coach Larry Johnson made an in-home visit to Togiai on Tuesday to see how things were going. They were hoping they could finally land his verbal commitment, but weren’t sure whether it would happen or not.

So you’ll need to check out their reaction when it does happen.

Tommy has made his decision❤️?❤️? urban said he's never seen coach j move like that before ???

  1. Best video of the yr award.I Love the mom or sister video taping. I want to be in that family. The next ” Big DaddY” no doubt. But for sure… getting Larry Johnson to come to OSU is the best recruit ever for THE OSU. The QB next yr is a rookie but I will be the first to say that OSU will be a juggernaut next yr with his passing skills.

  2. Somehow it got by me that Tommy committed on the spot during the home visit, but fun to watch. Welcome to the family, Tommy!


  4. I was watching a portion of Tommy T.’s film – when Tommy T. hits a ball carrier you almost feel sorry for the poor kid…pancake after pancake!
