ST. PETERSBURG, FL. – The best linebacker from Georgia not named Reuben Foster committed to Ohio State on national TV on Friday.
Central Gwinnett High School’s Trey Johnson picked Ohio State over Florida and Tennessee during the Under Armour All-America football game on ESPN. Johnson de-committed from Auburn last month after the coaching change.
“Ohio State is getting an SEC-caliber player, which is what Urban Meyer is trying to bring to his Ohio State teams,” Central Gwinnett coach Todd Wofford told the AJC.
“It’s the same format that Brian Kelly did with Notre Dame and their defense – bring as many kids from the south up north, and have them outrun the offenses.
After Friday’s game, Johnson was scheduled to meet in the team hotel with Meyer. He’s also supposed to sit down with Auburn’s defensive coaches, which are desperately trying to lure him back to the Tigers before the Feb. 6 signing
