Hmmmmmmm-sounds like Coach Day might be establishing a better foundation for recruits than Meyer. Emphasizing tOSU-the school and the program, not "I'm the greatest recruiter ever"!

“My commitment is now to the campus, to the university, to the alumni, to the community,” Johnson said. “Before, it was really Coach Meyer. But now I found other reasons to stay, and I’m more comfortable than I ever was.”

Well stated by the young man. 

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

With the comment he just made quoted above your post, Seltsa, he already is.

Very smart young man as well.

What's round on the ends and high in the middle? Tell me if you know!

If he was a Michigan State commit, he would've went elsewhere because they don't allow recruits to look around.

You're either at the table, or on the menu!!

They hasn’t been their philosophy there for a few years. They realized it doesn’t work with kids today

I'd love to see Dabo and his coaching staff have a gasoline fight.............................

Sometimes you look around and it makes you appreciate what you already have.  Glad he's sticking with the good guys.

Sounds like Coach Day is making quite the impression on recruits and their families.   I am so excited for the future of the Program.  Go Bucks!

Paris is clearly more mature, and thoughtful, than many of us fans...

I would like to see this guy be GREAT.  Keep that comfort level, dude.

That's exactly what it should be about. The entire program. Not just the coach. And we definitely have probably the best of them all. O-H

Late in, but great read.

Also appreciate Paris' maturity, and respect his transparency on a very personal decision.

"Sure, officials are supposed to be great, but on my worst day, could I be there? It just didn’t check that box.”

If there's ever a guidebook for recruits in helping them reach their decision, that's not bad opener there.

I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...

Paris Johnson is a well-spoken and thoughtful young man.  While there has been angst among some in the fan base about his intentions, it appears that everything Paris has done has been with the knowledge and approval of the coaching staff.  It's been quoted several times already but "on my worst day could I be there" demonstrates the deep level of thought Paris put into making his decision. 

I'm very impressed and glad he is a Buckeye.  Go Bucks!
