Garrett Wilson, a five-star wide receiver out of Texas, is one of the biggest recruits in Ohio State's 2019 class.

The top wideout committed to Ohio State over Texas. He's one of the top recruits in the country for the 2019 class.

Wilson recently addressed his commitment to Ohio State amid everything that's going on with Urban Meyer and the program.

The five-star recruit remains committed to the Buckeyes.

"Nothing's really changed on my end," Wilson told TMZ. "I see myself (at Ohio State) and I still believe in all the coaches there and believe in what they got going on there. As far as my commitment, nothing's changed regardless of what went on."

Wilson said that he would likely remain committed to Ohio State if Meyer left and the Buckeyes hired interim coach Ryan Day.

"(In the event Meyer was not at Ohio State) if they were to hire someone like coach Day, I'd still keep my commitment," Wilson said. "If there was something where there was a vacancy and they weren't going to give the job to coach Day then I might hold back and see what happens. But unless something drastically changes, I'm still going to be committed to Ohio State."

He says that Urban Meyer was a big reason for his commitment to Ohio State, but it wasn't the only reason.

"Urban Meyer, he's a big part of the reason why I committed to Ohio State," Wilson said. "But he's not the only reason I committed to Ohio State. (The other Ohio State staff members and I) have really built up a good relationship. They knew I was 100 percent all in, so we're still family; we're still checking in on each other stuff like that."
