Buckeyes Offer Seminole Commit

Ohio State has made finding a quarterback for the 2014 class a top priority, and they have several offers out. The Buckeyes have also offered a 2015 quarterback that is currently committed to Florida State.

Ohio State may have waited a while to offer a second quarterback in the 2014 class but have wasted no time in doing so for the class of 2015. Jacksonville (FL) First Coast signal caller DeAndre Johnson collected an offer from the Buckeyes in addition to several other schools.

"My coach told me that I picked up new offers from Vanderbilt, Ohio State, Tennessee, Maryland, Iowa State, Georgia, and Auburn," said Johnson.

The caveat in Johnson's recruitment is that he is already committed to another school. Florida State accepted his pledge last July.

"I'm still committed to Florida State," Johnson iterated. "I'm just listening to what other schools have to say."

Despite his verbal to the Seminoles, Johnson had glowing remarks for Ohio State.

"Ohio State is an offer that I have wanted for two years now," he stated. "It is a great offer for me. They have had great players like Ted Ginn Jr. I like their tradition they have and their big stadium, the Horseshoe."

"I've spoken to Coach Meyer," the Florida native continued. "He just let me know that I fit into what they want to do and that Braxton Miller will be leaving so a spot will be open."

Johnson also addressed factors that will ultimately play into his final decision of what school to attend.

"It will come down to how I fit into a school's offensive style," he explained. "I want to play for a coaching staff that knows how to develop their players. Distance won't play a role."

The talented quarterback was very direct when asked if he would visit the Buckeyes.

"I will definitely visit," Johnson said. "I'm not sure when but it's a place I want to check out."
