Tyreke Johnson has long been regarded as one of the most complete defensive backs in the country, and the polished 4-star prospect cleared up his future plans Tuesday when he officially committed to Ohio State.

Johnson made the announcement in a video posted by 247Sports.

Johnson burst on the scene at Trinity Christian Academy, and he made his presence felt in the defensive backfield to such a degree that he solidified himself as the 38th-ranked player in the country.

The Jacksonville native also grades out as the fifth-best safety overall among all 2018 recruits and the seventh-best player in Florida.
