Ohio State former five-star DB Tyreke Johnson quickly became a priority for numerous schools when he entered the portal
Recruiting: Johnson committed to Ohio State over Clemson, UCLA, Florida and many others in early December. He took an official visit to Columbus during his senior season.
At Ohio State: Johnson redshirted during his true freshman season in Columbus and then totaled eight tackles in 2019 and 2020. He saw 77 snaps during the 2020 season.
Potential landing spots: Dozens of schools have reached out to Johnson since he entered the portal, so while it is still very early, some of the more aggressive include South Carolina, Oregon, Florida, Mississippi State, Minnesota, UCF and Florida State.
Farrell’s Take: Johnson clearly has a ton of skill and we loved his size and range out of high school. It didn't work out at Ohio State as expected but this is a high level talent and a kid who can play multiple roles in every defense. Versatile defensive backs who can cover in the slot and range as a free are always valuable.
