"I always wanted to go to Ohio State," Boone said. "Coach Tressel is the nicest man I have ever met, and I love Coach Bollman."
Boone made the commitment last night, and it's been a big evening and day for Alex and his family.
"My family is so happy," he said. "They love Ohio State too."
"My mom actually made the call because they're not allowed to talk to me. She called and spoke to Coach Tressel, Coach Bollman and Coach Tucker."
You can look for Alex on both sides of the ball this year.
"I will play tackle at Ohio State but I will also be playing defensive end this fall," he said.
"I am in the 290 to 300 range right now. I am fluctuating."
