Bellflower, California, St. John Bosco four-star safety Jaiden Woodbey has been trying to make it to Columbus for almost a year now, but travel issues prevent that from happening until Ohio State's annual Junior Day last weekend.
The visit was supposed to be about meeting with coaches, seeing the facilities and getting an overall feel for campus. Blown away by everything he saw, Woodbey vowed to return later this spring.
Woodbey continued to reflect on the visit in the meantime, and the more he thought about it, the more he knew Columbus was the place for him. That's why he made the call and committed to Ohio State this evening.
