Ryan Day has yet to coach his first game as the permanent head coach at Ohio State, but it doesn’t look like the Buckeyes have missed a beat since Urban Meyer’s retirement. Friday, the program got absolutely huge news on the recruiting front.
Julian Fleming, the top-ranked wide receiver in the country for 2020, announced on Friday that he’s committing to Ohio State. Fleming, a five-star player, chose the Buckeyes over Clemson, Alabama, Georgia and Penn State.
Fleming’s commitment to the Buckeyes will sting Nittany Lions fans, considering he’s from the state of Pennsylvania.
