The whole is more than the sum of its parts. With Harrison, that will become even more true.

I already love this kid. He is going to be a superstar!

Go Bucks!

A highly skilled player who clearly wants to be at Ohio State, who also has a realistic approach to education and life after football (whenever that happens for him).

The best of both worlds. 

In old Ohio there's a team that's known throughout the land...

I've been waiting for this BOOM all morning....welcome Mr. Wilson!

No such thing as a bad win

Have we discussed who will be throwing him the ball at all? I might go start a thread....

I love this kid, was open and honest from jump & never wavered.

He's a guy I'm excited to see play.  (And I don't think he has any concerns about who might be throwing him the ball).

Is Harrison the only other guy we're likely to see signing today?

wO0T....glad to see we're still pulling a few 5* guys

Whoso would be a man, must be a non-conformist.

I wonder if there was anything that could happen to keep this guy from being a Buckeye?   Captain material.

This may not be a popular take but some credit really does need to go out to Zach Smith.  For a man with so many problems and personal demons, the guy could recruit and started the ball rolling with Wilson. Of course most of the credit goes to to Wilson who stayed on board even after all the drama. Great signing. Very excited to see him in the class.

Deserves got nothin' to do with it

Paramount signing. I'm as hype for Wilson, as I was for Trevon Grimes. Here's to the Buckeyes hitting on this kid.

That's the dude I was waiting on. Very good kid, stuck with his commitment, that's called committing to a program and not a coach. Well done.

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Add Zach and that's 3...5 stars...add Fields and that's 4. Reminds me of the small USC classes that Carrol brought in that he'd use to compete and win NCs.

Welcome Wilson!

I'd guess that with Kyler Murray likely leaving school at Oklahoma that Justin Fields ends up in Norman. I hope not be we shall see

Murray is going to the MLB and Mathis likely flipped to Georgia for a reason.

And Oklahoma has a stud QB commit for 2019, Spencer Rattler from AZ. Something just seem off with a guy who commits to multiple schools, MSU, OSU and ends up at GA. I'm not sweating him at all. He's a solid QB but not a real game breaker or program changer

I'd agree with that take BB76!

Let's not forget he was committed to Iowa State before MSU, OSU and ultimately Georgia.

After originally committing to Iowa State on Feb. 12, 2017, he decommitted on June 22 of that year and then committed to the Spartans on Sep. 23, 2017. He remained committed to Michigan State until June 24 of this year when he flipped his commitment to Ohio State.

WOW, thanks for the info!!! I didn't know about Iowa State. That makes it even worse but I suppose in his mind he was committing uphill. I'd say Georgia and Ohio State will be on a close level playing field for years to come. Best of luck Mr. Mathis. I must say that he isn't a dumbass because he made it out of Meat Chicken without committing to that dumpster fire program in Ann Arbor

The Fields to OSU rumor is from like yesterday... And everyone knew Murray was leaving Oklahoma since before the season started.

Sweet!  Excited to see this kid!

The more you act like a lady the more likely he’ll act like a gentleman.

Welcome and congrats. Get on the phone and encourage a few others. 5 star WV O lineman would be quality. 5 star D lineman also.

Excited about this kid and Jameison Williams catching passes from (insert qb of the future here) down the road.

Ok, cool. Hook 'em! 

Love this kid and think he'll make a great Buckeye receiver. 

We can't stop here; this is bat country...

He reminds me of Calvin Ridley. I think he’ll be an All-American by the time he leaves Columbus.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

Between Olave having a break out year.  Now Wilson and Jameson coming in...

Also we have Ruckert (probably the best hands of any TE) warming up in the back 

OSU should be a QB paradise!

Haskins definitely needs to stay another year just so we can watch

I like this kid! Super talent, no drama, going to be a superstar.  Welcome to the Buckeye family!

BOOM!  I've been super excited about Garrett Wilson returning home and being a Buckeye.  He is an elite talent and an exceptional young man by all account.  Go Bucks!
