Five-star Cincinnati offensive tackle and Ohio State commit Paris Johnson Jr. is transferring from St. Xavier High School to Princeton High School, Princeton coach Mike Daniels confirmed to Eleven Warriors.
The transfer comes in an effort to graduate early, which he wouldn't be able to do at St. Xavier.
In the process, Johnson will be playing with four-star defensive end Darrion Henry and four-star linebacker Jaheim Thomas – who are both also Ohio State targets – as the Cincinnati trio is finally in the same place.
The trio's desire to play together at the collegiate level has been well-documented, and while Johnson is committed to Ohio State, visits to schools like Georgia and LSU – two schools that the trio has serious interest in – have raised concerns about how strong that commitment is.
Regardless, Princeton – which finished 3-7 in 2018 – will surely appreciate the boost along the offensive line for the next season.
