’21 Ohio Guard Meechie Johnson Commits to Ohio State

Garfield Heights guard Meechie Johnson has committed to Ohio State. He made his announcement on Twitter in a video posted by his father.

Johnson (5-11 160) is now the second member of Ohio State’s 2021 recruiting class. He joins Convoy, Ohio forward Kalen Etzler, who is a 4-star prospect and the No. 149 player in the nation.

The class is currently ranked No. 1 in the nation.

Johnson is the No. 5 combo guard in the nation per the 247Sports Composite, and the No. 71 player overall and the No. 3 player in the state.

Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann offered Johnson prior to his freshman season of basketball.

Johnson is currently recovering from a torn ACL in the spring.

This past season, he averaged 23.0 points per game, proving to be one of the top scorers in Northeast Ohio.

As a freshman, he put up 50 points in one of his first varsity games.

Johnson is a scoring guard who can get others involved as well. He is comfortable shooting from many different angles and can pull up off the dribble from anywhere and at any speed.

As you can see in the video above, even as a freshman, Johnson has very good court awareness and moves well without the ball too.

Ohio State could have room for five signees in the 2021 class, so landing a couple of prospects early makes sense. Johnson is the type of outgoing recruit who will help the Buckeyes on the recruiting trail over the next year and a half or so.

  1. The young man is lethal from anywhere on the court. I don’t think I’ve seem a more pure shooter since Jon Deibler.
