Trey Johnson Selects Ohio State and Helps the Buckeyes With A Big Need

Ohio State picked up 2013 outside linebacker prospect Trey Johnson at the Under Armour All-American Game tonight in St. Petersburg. The 6’2” 220 lbs. four star linebacker (Rivals 100 member) selected the Buckeyes over offers from Florida and Tennessee. He becomes the 20th member of a class already ranked 6th best nationally. Johnson will be on a squad next season that had great need at the linebacker position eventually switching fullback Zach Boren to linebacker to finish the season.

At halftime of the game between Team Highlight (black) and Team Nitro (White), Johnson selected Ohio State and coach Urban Meyer after some last minute advice from his father. Originally committed to Auburn until Gene Chizik’s departure, Johnson felt at home on his official visit to Columbus for the Michigan game in November. The announcement wasn’t a surprise to those that follow recruiting closely as rumors of an OSU decision had been rampant for some time.

Ohio State hopes to pick up two more recruits this weekend when Texas Linebacker Mike Mitchell and Kentucky Receiver James Quick make their ‘dedications’ during the Army All-American Bowl.

Johnson currently plays at the middle linebacker position, projects on the outside in college but could play either at Ohio State. His strength is his ability to go from sideline to sideline, something the Buckeyes need at the linebacker position. As a sophomore he had 152 tackles and then 164 tackles as a junior with 24.5 for loss. The pick-up also helps to keep the Buckeyes active in Georgia for future recruiting needs.
