"Year for what?"
He looks a little thin for the O-Line...
(Boom; p.s. Where can I get some of those shorts?)
I wish the real world would just stop hassling me...
Welcome to Buckeye Nation!
Welcome, young Buck.
Heal up and keep putting in good work—on the court, in the classroom, and in the community. It's exciting to think about you driving and dishing or scoring for the Buckeyes.
Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !
If we took another OL, I thought it would have been a tackle.

Boom!! Coach H and company are killing it!!
How tall is he?
Ok they edited it, thanks.
I was actually just told he's about 6-foot-2. The 5-11 and 6-0 on the recruiting services are a bit out of date. Not sure about his weight and where that is at the moment FYI.
How tall is he?
He's 16. And likely to grow several inches before he steps on court in the Scarlet & Gray.
Speak for yourself.

I grew about 7 inches after turning 16. He looks a little baby faced, so I think its certainly possible he adds a bit of height.
Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!
Oh hell yes.
This is definitely where I parked my car.
The world is yours
the empire never ended
Fuck eSECpn and fuck Mythigan.
Buckeyes currently have the top recruiting class in the nation for 2021
Out of 5 teams w/ a commit LOL.
Jump out to an early lead, and stay there.
Wire to wire, baby!

Suck it Coach K and Coach Cal!
I play, coach stays. He goes, I go.

"Ohio fullbacks should stay in Ohio and play at Ohio State." - Earle Bruce
I read in the past that his recruitment would be a long drawn out process. He also doesn't seem like the type to just commit out of the blue on a random Tuesday afternoon, without a previous announcement of when he would be committing. You don't see a lot of kids these days, especially kids with 87,000 followers on Instagram just commit without making a huge scene on social media beforehand (top 10, top 5, top 3, committment date, etc.). Props to him for not being like the rest.
It's a beautiful day in Columbus, Ohio... and TTUN still sucks.
His dad is Cleveland AAU kingpin Sonny Johnson, who said several years ago that he wanted to see tOSU become a pipeline school for Cleveland area hoops talent. Alonzo Gaffney played for Johnson's AAU squad, so he wasn't kidding around.
IMO, Johnson (and his dad) realized he probably wasn't going to get Duke/UNC/UK level offers, so he committed where he felt comfortable.
I believe Sonny Johnson is his uncle, and high school coach
You are correct, Sonny is his uncle, not his dad. The whole family is big in the NE Ohio hoops scene.
Good pickup by Coach Holtman.
Boom! Welcome aboard, Meechie.
Fields of Dreams
A nice unexpected BOOM!
Boom! Has to help with Bronny, since Meechie is his cousin/Lebron's nephew!
Pick up your feet, turn your corners square! And DRIVE DRIVE DRIVE!!!
I like where this team is headed.
Welcome to Columbus. Enjoy the ride

One man's trash, is another man's treasure
I like everything about this kid. If his knee is fully healed, I think he's a top 50 player for sure.
I noticed 24/7’s state rankings for OH also include prospects from Ontario, Canada. Their logic must be picking up “ON” in addition to “OH”. If that’s the case it would make Meechie the second ranked player in Ohio, right?
I think Bediako played somewhere around Cleveland/Euclid before transferring-not sure-to the place in Canada. He's listed as having a tOSU offer.
It depends on how you look at it, and 247Sports has done it both ways.
Bediako is a Canadian, but he plays for a prep school in Ohio. So 247 ranks him as an Ohioan. Last year, Alonzo Gaffney attended a prep school in New Hampshire, and he was still ranked as an Ohioan.
They had Gaffney and his Brewster teammates listed as Granite Staters........ https://247sports.com/Season/2019-Basketball/CompositeRecruitRankings/?InstitutionGroup=Highschool&State=NH
They also have him listed as the second-ranked Ohioan on his profile page. I think it's hard to know what to do with some of the guys who play for multiple high schools in multiple states.
Welcome to the Buckeye family Meechie!!!!
With Meechie's commitment, I could see a high probability of an all-Ohio 2021 class with him and Etzler committed, and Holtman in hot pursuit of Duncombe and Branham.
BOOM! Meechie Johnson is an excellent addition to the the Buckeye hoops program. Go Bucks!
He’s an ankle breaker. dayummm
Is it a requirement that recruits to OSU have to have a torn ACL?
Anyway, get healed and come tear up the competition!
Surprised that 11 Warriors didn't include some stats in article. Does anyone have any or know better than me where to get them?
He was averaging 23 points per game before his injury. Don't know the stats beyond that.
His injury was in the state playoffs, so 23 game as a soph playing at a high d1 level in the state.
WOO HOO! Welcome aboard Meechie!
16-2 is SWEET!
