Buckeye Commits React

Ohio State has had a terrific week in recruiting the southeast. Georgia linebacker Raekwon McMillan and Florida wide receiver Johnnie Dixon both committed to the Buckeyes. The current commits voiced their excitement over the newest additions.

Ohio State's 2014 recruiting class has grown in the last few days with two significant additions in four-star prospects Raekwon McMillan and Johnnie Dixon.

McMillan chose Ohio State over Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, and Georgia, while Dixon picked the Buckeyes over Alabama and Miami.

At 19 members, Ohio State now has the nation's seventh best class and is in a great spot to land a few other blue chip recruits as well.

The rest of the class chimed in on the newest commits.

"It shows how awesome Coach Meyer is," said kicker Sean Nuernberger. "It's crazy, though. Our class is solid. We're building a national championship contending team."

Cincinnati (OH) Moeller linebacker Sam Hubbard was ecstatic to hear the news.

"I'm speechless," he stated. "I'm even more excited now to get to campus."

Defensive end commit Jalyn Holmes recognizes the caliber of players he will have the opportunity to play alongside.

"They are two great players," he noted. "They are also two very good people. I can't wait to get to Columbus and be with all of them."

Fort Worth offensive lineman Demetrius Knox sees a bright future in Columbus.

"I'm hyped up," he said. "It's obvious Ohio State is one of the top teams in the country. It's a great place and has a great coaching staff. The top players in the country see that. We're coming together to do something special."

Fellow wide receiver commit Terry McLaurin brought up the speed that would be on its way to Columbus.

"It's two great pickups for us," he pointed out. "Having speed helps. We're going to be fast with me, Johnnie (Dixon), Noah (Brown), Parris (Campbell), and Curtis (Samuel). That's five receivers that can run. It's going to be real nice for Stephen (Collier)."

The quarterback of the class was excited to have another weapon to work with.

"I'm so pumped to work with both of them," Stephen Collier said. "I've never been able to play with that level of talent on a team and I think we're going to do some special things in Columbus."

It was an impressive two-day stretch for Ohio State. More good news should be on its way to Columbus in a few weeks when Cleveland Glenville prospects Marshon Lattimore and Erick Smith announce their college intentions at the U.S. Army All-America Game in San Antonio.
