Johnson (6-7 285) is the No. 1 offensive tackle in the nation and the No. 7 prospect in the 2020 class overall per 247Sports. He committed to Ohio State over offers from Alabama, Michigan, Florida State, Stanford, Notre Dame, Clemson, Georgia, Auburn, Arizona State, Oklahoma, Texas, USC, Bowling Green, and many others.
Johnson is the No. 1 prospect in the state of Ohio in the 2020 recruiting class.
Following a busy month visiting Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Clemson, USC, UCLA, and Cal, Johnson finally decided to settle down and become a Buckeye.
The commitment continues what is expected to be a very successful week or two on the 2020 recruiting front. On Wednesday, the Buckeyes added 4-star IMG safety Lejond Cavazos, and on Sunday they are expected to land the No. 3 pro-style passer in Jack Miller.
Ohio State now has two offensive tackles committed in the 2020 class. Johnson joins Marietta, Georgia lineman Jake Wray, who is the brother of current Buckeye freshman Max Wray. The younger Wray is the No. 22 offensive tackle in the class and the No. 165 player overall.
Things are going very well for the Buckeyes in 2020 and there doesn’t expect to be a dip in momentum any time soon.
