In Columbus for the Friday Night Lights camp, Dwan Mathis of Oak Park High (MI) flipped his verbal pledge from Big Ten foe Michigan State, and is now the 12th member of Ohio State’s talented 2019 class of future Buckeyes.

Although he’s considered the ninth pro-style quarterback in 2019, don’t get it twisted, he isn’t just a pocket passer. Mathis can run.

At The Opening Regional held in Canton, the 6-foot-5, 195-pound four-star prospect showed off his wheels, posting a 4.67 second time in the 40 yard dash.
