Paris Johnson headed to Princeton High School
Paris Johnson, Ohio State’s 2020 five-star offensive tackle commit, is on the move. After spending his first three years of high school at St. Xavier High School he’ll be changing locations for his senior year, according to a report from Adam Clements of WKRC-TV.
BREAKING: 5 ⭐️ @OhioStateFB commit @ParisJohnsonJr leaving St. Xavier High School after his request to graduate early and enroll in college next spring is denied. Johnson plans to attend Princeton high school next year, where he’ll graduate in December. @MonicaCLJohnson @Local12— Adam Clements (@AClementsWKRC) May 3, 2019
What does this mean for the Buckeyes? Well, one, it means that they’ll be getting their all world recruit in January rather than June. Early enrollees are always good news, and getting a player like Johnson in for an extra six months can make a big difference. Secondly, Paris moving over to Princeton means that he’ll be joining some familiar faces for Buckeye fans.
Namely, Johnson will be joining defensive end Darrion Henry and linebacker Jaheim Thomas. Both are big Buckeye targets, and have been considered pretty heavy Buckeye leans for a while now. Perhaps Paris in their ears will be enough to get them to Columbus? Ohio State can certainly hope so.
Five Buckeyes selected for tennis championships
Ohio State will be well represented at the men’s tennis championships in Orlando, as is to be expected of the top ranked team in the nation. Per Ohio State Buckeyes dot com:
“JJ Wolf, John McNally and Kyle Seelig will all compete in the singles championship while Martin Joyce and Hunter Tubert will team up in the doubles draw.”
It’s been an outstanding season for the Buckeyes, and I imagine that will continue with these five at the championships. The singles championship is set to start on May 20, and the doubles starts a day later.
Buckeyes set for three game series with Minnesota
Looking for some sports to fill the void this weekend? How about some Buckeye baseball? The Buckeyes are sitting at 24-20 on the season, and looking to bounce back against the 18-23 Golden Gophers after a tough series with Iowa last weekend. You can watch tonight’s game at 9 p.m. ET on FS1, Saturday’s contest at 3 p.m. ET on BTN, and Sunday’s at 2 p.m. on BTN Plus.
The Buckeyes are entering the final stretch of the season, and this series could go a long way for both their national standing and their standing in the Big Ten. Minnesota sits ahead of them in the Big Ten right now, and if Ohio State can take two of the weekend’s three games they would be able to move as high as fifth in conference, depending on how Maryland, Illinois and Rutgers do this weekend.
