If you go/went to Ohio State, you get O-H'd a lot. It happens to me all of the time.

(For those unaware, when one Buckeye spots another, they'll yell out 'O-H' and the person they spot is supposed to say 'I-O' back.)

It happens where I live now in Hoboken, New Jersey. It happens when I'm in New York City. It happens when I'm at the airport in Palm Beach, Fla.

If you're wearing any kind of Buckeyes gear, it'll happen anywhere and everywhere.

Tyreke Smith, a four-star freshman commit at Ohio State, is just starting to experience this. And he's loving it.

The top recruit shared the news on Twitter this morning.

"Even in Boston I’m getting “O-H” yelled to me," Smith wrote. "Buckeyes got the best fans!"

Other fan bases will surely agree with the "best fans" distinction. But the passion of Ohio State's fan base is rarely matched.

Smith, a 6-foot-3, 260-pound defensive lineman, was the No. 4 WDE in the 2018 class, per 247Sports' Composite Rankings. He was part of Ohio State's class which ranks No. 2 in the country.
