    Yeah. It’s good that it appears Ryan Day has really established some great relationships in Cincinnati. If you want to recruit Ohio well, you have to recruit NEO and most importantly Cincy.

    Happy to hear he's reaffirmed his commitment and he'll be in the class. Every time we get a highly ranked offensive line commitment---and he's about as highly ranked as you can get---it just reminds me of how good Orlando Pace was. B/c they are never as good as Pace.

    This is a great example for us fans not to get antsy and rip these kids apart for doing something a wise kid should do. Sure we want him here, but our over zealous mentality can get in the way and may even drive them away. With that said, so glad he is a Buckeye!

    USA Today released its 2019 ALL-USA Preseason high school selections on offense and defensethis week, and several Buckeyes were included.

    Headlining the group on offense were Paris Johnson Jr. and Julian Fleming, but Luke Wypler was also included from the 2020 class. Marvin Harrison Jr. was listed for the 2021 class as well. On defense, Ohio State commits Clark Phillips and Jack Sawyer were featured. Five-star cornerback Elias Ricks, No. 1 2021 cornerback Tony Grimes and five-star 2021 athlete Emeka Egbuka were included.

    It’s difficult to name All-USA teams teams, so the task was a mighty one to take on for USA Today, but as far as how to look at these selections from an Ohio State standpoint, there are a few observations.

    While it seems obvious, Julian Fleming and Paris Johnson Jr. are the cornerstones of this class, and it’s clearly being perceived that way on a national level too. These two commitments will be the ones that kickstart the Ryan Day Era in Columbus, and it’s important that they’re being recognized as such at this point in time.

    Paris Johnson shuts it down, 'done deal' to Buckeyes
    ByBILL KURELIC Aug 12, 2:45 PM

    CINCINNATI - Cincinnati (Ohio) Princeton and Ohio State offensive line commitment Paris Johnson has been committed to Ohio State since June 28, 2018.

    However, while Johnson has long been an Ohio State commitment, he originally committed to Urban Meyer when Meyer was the Buckeyes’ head coach. Ryan Day subsequently took over for Meyer, and Day was not the one that recruited Johnson. So, Johnson wanted to get to know Day well before going all in with his decision. It was important that Johnson and his mother Monica have a great relationship and secure feeling in heading to Ohio State with Ryan Day at the helm.

    Day and Johnson as well as Johnson’s mother have gotten to know each other very well over the months since Day took over and have built a great relationship. While Johnson took official visits to both Georgia and LSU, things have continued to move in a very positive direction for the Buckeyes and Johnson.

    Johnson has given plenty of indications on social media and by his actions over the past few months that he would be staying with his Ohio State commitment including posting pictures of himself and his Princeton teammate and Ohio State commitment Darrion Henry in Ohio State uniforms together.

    This afternoon Johnson and Henry were part of a media day at the Princeton High School football stadium. And during that media session Johnson proclaimed his recruitment is done, he will sign with the Buckeyes.

    "It's a done deal," Johnson said when asked about Ohio State.

    The 6-foot-7 and 295-pound Johnson is a 5-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite. He is the country’s No. 7 overall prospect, the No. 1 offensive tackle and the No. 1 prospect in Ohio.

    The 6-foot-4 and 279-pound Henry is a 4-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite. He is the country’s No. 164 overall prospect, the No. 17 defensive tackle and the No. 2 prospect in Ohio.

    Guess this proves the old 'Yogism" that it "ain't over until it's over". Thought it was a done deal months ago, but apparently not......oh wait, there's still four months to go.....I'll bet that there's a few schools still sniffing around Paris (and Darrion) to flip....just like we're doing with Ricks. Oh well, the ebb and flow of 'crooting isn't for the faint of heart. Go Bucks! Let's kick 'em off now....

    The 2019 season marks the first and last season five-star offensive tackle Paris Johnson Jr. will spend at Princeton before he enrolls early at Ohio State. He talked to Eleven Warriors about how he and Darrion Henry are forcing each other to improve during practice before the season begins, and Princeton head coach Mike Daniels called the 2020 class a “historic class.” Henry believes his team can win a state title. If the Vikings do, Johnson will be a major factor involved.

    First Game: at Milford, Aug. 30

    Game to Watch: vs. Colerain, Sept. 20

    When I evaluated Darrion Henry on the defensive side, I said the matchup with Fairfield would be the game to watch for him because he will be playing former Ohio State all-purpose back target JuTahn McClain, but the game to watch for Johnson, and maybe the entire team, is against Colerain, where Ohio State cornerback Amir Riep played. Colerain had a massive 2019 class and got the better of Princeton last season, but Mike Daniels believes this year is Pricneton’s year and that Ohio State head coach Ryan Day might be in attendance.
