Big news tonight as two Florida high school teammates, wide receiver Johnnie Dixon and safety Shawn Boone from Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens, will come up to Columbus this weekend.
Dixon, a 5-foot-10, 187 pound burner that has offers from Alabama, Florida, Miami, Oregon and a host of others, does not plan on working out for the Buckeyes, but rather will take the trip to get acclimated with the school and the thought of coming north to play football, something that he's considered a bit before he says.
"I'm definitely thinking about going elsewhere to play football," he said when asked about leaving the south. "I like Ohio State or I wouldn't be making this trip."
Boone reports an offer from the Buckeyes as well, but it's been suggested that his offer was contingent upon his performance and arrival on Friday. He'll be taking his shot to solidify things with Ohio State.
The duo will arrive in Columbus on Thursday and leave on Saturday.
