Five-star wide receiver Julian Fleming is one of the top prospects in the nation and one of the Ohio State Buckeyes’ prized 2020 commitments. So any rumors that Fleming might be second-guessing his decision to join the team are taken extremely seriously.
But in the wake of some rumblings on social media that he might be flipping his commitment – perhaps to in-state Penn State – Fleming has decided to respond.
Taking to Twitter on Friday, Fleming made it clear in no uncertain terms that he is committed to the Buckeyes.
He made it clear that he would be reporting to the school in January and that any rumors about him flipping are false.
Just to clarify, any rumor or statement going around about me flipping is false. I am true to my commitment and will report in January to THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY. GO BUCKS! 🅾️
